She's back! I am happy to welcome Vickiann, from MyCrappyHouse.com back to the podcast. We talk about how she has been making her crappy house less crappy and answer some very important questions.

There are knots and bows to be tied and maybe, someday, a tome about her home to be written(?) and she talks about all of it on this episode.
