What’s up homey? It’s always something.
Ever notice that when you own a home there is always something that needs to be done? Since we have been married, Tra and I have owned four homes two of them have been brand new. I have learned that no matter if your home is brand new or older there is always something that needs to be done. It can be as huge as new floors or as simple as new lights, there is always something. You may wonder why I would bring this up, with spring comes projects and we have a lot of em to get done. When you have 8 kids running around your house, and sometimes as many as 20, things get broke, and they get broke well. So spring always seem to motivate me to get to that endless list of projects.
But, you see I have a problem, I love to start big jobs, remodel rooms, put in new floors, build walls and closets, add outlets and much more. What’ s the problem? Well I don’t like particularly finishing jobs. Once it is good enough to function it’s good enough for Glenn. I was warned of this by my good friend Ryan when I moved into the home we are currently in.
When we first moved into this house, we lived downstairs for a couple months while we completely remodeled the upstairs, and I mean remodel. We tore up the floors to the joists, we tore down walls, we put up walls and much more. It was a filthy mess. Finally we came very close to completion, we just needed new vent covers and window sills, so we decided to move up stairs and I could finish it all over the weekends. Ryan prudently counceled me not to do it, he begs me not to move in until is completely done. What does he know? I am one motivated individual. Well last week I put in most of the vent covers, and the window sills…… well I’m going to get to them soon I promise. Since then I have done probably a dozen other huge projects, none of them 100% complete. Oh and for those of you that are not aware, we moved upstairs over three years ago.
So now I am overwhelmed with what I hate most, a whole bunch of mini projects that need to get done. I have dedicated myself to completing at least two mini-projects each week and this week it was Alli’s door and the vent covers. Next week, I think I would like to remodel our bathroom. Does that count as a mini project?
