How long has this been going on?

I'm wondering, how long can a project remain unfinished?

One friend is on Year Four of a bathroom, another is halfway done after a couple of months. I'm on Month Three of the lattice fiasco, but I attribute my lack of progress on the heat. It was kinda dumb to do something outdoors this time of year.

On one segment of a DIY show, the homeowner revealed she had gone a year without a kitchen.

I've decided on a Plan B for the bathroom -- an updated floor, paint and some new towels -- and it's been about three weeks. I expect to be done by the end of this weekend. I need some framing work, but, wisely, I will leave that to someone else.

And then, I rest. Until fall, when I begin --- THE GREAT paint project. I'm going to paint the exterior of my house.

There will be photos.

I want your blood -- and some nails

Catching up with episodes of "True Blood." Bill the vampire can't get an electrician to come out. Join the club. Dead for more than a century, and he still wants to re-do a house.

I'm doomed.
