Wow! Congrats on finding a new job so soon after a lay-off. I hear there are a lot of folks who have been looking for over a year.
AND, getting two houses decorated. Now that's using your time wisely!
How about you come and decorate my house? I'm having a shoulder surgery next Monday and will not have use of my right arm for 12 weeks (& I'm right handed). No decs for me this year...
