Slow Progress

Most of the time I am a patient person. When it comes to projects around my house, that's a totally different story. I'm not quite sure why the change occurs but it really isn't pretty. I have this list, you see, of things that "need" to be done and things I "want" done. Yes they are the same list because of course everything I want is also necessary! Yes, I'm being sarcastic. We've been in our house a little over 2 years and according to my personal timeline we should have WAY more finished around here. Did you miss the first part about me being impatient?? Now let's not take into account that 1. we're not made of money, 2. I was pregnant for a good portion of the time here and now have a 10 month old to run around after, 3. I currently don't have a job which means our budget is tight, or 4. the things I "need" done might be slightly unrealistic.

 (I love the board and batten in here)

Here's where it gets tricky. Some of the projects on this list are small things that I could accomplish on my own (when A is napping or when B is home and can watch her). Others though definitely need to be completed by both of us (know any good free babysitters?). Knowing this, most days I am totally not motivated to complete these smaller projects because all I can think about are the bigger ones that I would rather be doing instead. Totally backwards right?! So instead of taking care of the small things in order to start crossing things off and making progress in the house, I continue to add new projects every time I come across something that I think "hey we could totally do that!" I think I might need some help.

(sure, we can totally do this to our stairs, right?!)

So now that A's party is rapidly approaching, I feel this self-imposed pressure to get the house "ready" before we have people over. I think I might need some help. Mental help that is, unless you want to physically help as well. I'll take it. I'm not too proud. As long as you can handle me telling you what to do ;)

If I'm absent from the bloggy blog for a while now you know why. I am frantically trying to cross things off my list in hopes that it will be ready by July 30th. Unless of course I get distracted by a certain someone...

I'll keep you posted!

Yes, auntie Erika bought them for her! They are very cute but didn't stay clean for very long :)
