Do Not Attempt at Home

So just a quick note for today...

Hubby decided to get an early start this morning on the office closet which we're turning into a printing and filing station. I was proud of him and grateful since I've been hoping to get this project done for a while. At the same time, he used a power sander to smooth his plaster patch-up work without removing anything from the room or sealing the area off or putting down a drop cloth. Now, I've got at least a day's worth of dust to clean up from the living room, dining room and kitchen let alone the office, which is full of book shelves and paperwork.

Do you ever feel like home improvements are all about one step forward and one step backward all at the same time?

My good friend once reminded me, "They do this to say they love you."

If you're a handy hubby, always check with your wife before doing a messy job. 
She'll either tell you how to minimize the mess or if she approves 
your approach, you can tell her it was her idea to do it that way
and hope for the best!
