If you know me, you’d probably know that patience is not my strongest quality. Followed closely by follow-through. I love to start projects- any project- but at about the 95% mark I loose motivation, and suddenly want to jump into the next project.
Did I mention I also have a short attention span? No? Ooo, look over there- I mean…what was I saying?
This house is forcing me to work on those deficiencies though- while I want things done NOW (and in many cases yesterday), I can’t just walk away from a project for a newer, better project, because if I do…well, let’s say that I don’t like being ankle deep in water, or having to dodge random electrical wires.
That can be a good thing- but when I look at the house to-do list, I’m a little bit overwhelmed, which in turn makes me impatient to have to wait until spring to get moving. Especially on things I have to deal with everyday. cough..cough..doors..cough.
Sixteen inches of fresh snow will do that to you.
So, I distract myself with pretty internet items (one of my favs) and mindless mini-projects, (wool is my current choice) trying wait out the weather. If I didn’t, I might just go a little crazy with a sledge hammer, all in the name of renovation, and M, Stella and I would be living in a motel while the experts come in to fix the flood and sparking wires.
