Her words stung. They went something like this…Mom you are starting projects and not finishing them .. what?
You know the old saying the truth hurts? Even through the pain I knew it was the truth as
far as our home goes.
I’m sure we’ve come up with a disorder for this type of problem? DIY disorder..??
I am sure there is a cure for it though…
In my defense.. now that I’m working I am finding it difficult to allot time to work on the list
of house projects I have–that is a real excuse right?
So I made up my mind that I am going to remedy that. Truthfully – it was bugging the heck out of me
because I am not by nature a not finisher...it is due to me being to busy.
that is like gravel in my mouth.
Maybe your not like me but have other areas like health and fitness, cleaning out and organizing where
you have been putting it on the back burner?
I think this would work for for those too?
With summer slowly…well-it feels quickly to me- winding down– it is the perfect time to take the bull
by the horns and get a few of these things checked of my list.
Will you join me?
Here is my plan
here is the verse I read 2 days ago…coincidence? I think not:)
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity ( projects complete), but hasty shortcuts ( procrastinating) lead to poverty ( incomplete projects)
Proverbs 21: 5
Parenthesis mine and are not biblical…lol
I say this with a smile…not serious you know? but I am thinking I need to sit down and do some planning out of the
next few months.
In August we are going to the lake for 4 days. I am going to take the 4 days leading up to vacay to complete these 4 projects.
No painting signs..no figuring out September space..zilch!
The 4 projects are ( a drum roll here would be nice:)
:: Finish taking of the bead board and painting Ashwood
:: Finish painting the fireplace and decide on mantle decor
:: Sew the other panel to the dining room curtain and buy a bamboo shade
:: Take on the refrigerator…that will be a surprise for you:)
Now surely in four days we can accomplish this right?
I can then go to the lake knowing that I tackled the beast of procrastinating DIY home projects
if this works I am thinking I might just try this in September…
what about you? do you have a list of DIY projects that are incomplete?
what is your plan on finishing them...or not;)
happy happy Monday….xoxo
