You know when you move into your first place (as in, the first place that you can actually paint the walls without losing your deposit) and you have lists upon lists of things you want to do?
I feel that most of my lists originate from the great ideas I get off of Pinterest. And luckily, Pinterest will save me lots of $$ in the end.
Here's my dilemma.
I can't do it.
I mean, I'm capable, physically. But mentally?
How do you great DIYers find the time? By the time I'm finished with a week straight of work (7 days mind you), I'm catching up on sleep, relaxation, and decompression! I don't know when I'll make the time to do it all.
Like, gardening - I really want to garden this year! Sooooo badly. I even have raised garden beds that are being donated and such. I don't have a yard as of yet (new house, new construction, new dirt - you get the picture), or a fence, or a pergola (which I'm also going to build with what? tools!), and somehow I have it in my mind that I have to have it all at once or nothing can go in. Whoa - where did I get that wacky idea from? I don't know.
- BTW: did you ever see the movie "The Jones'?" I do not have a case of keeping up with them - I have a case of trying to keep up with my hilarious expectations that my brain concocts.
So, how you do say: Dear self (and hubby), We are going to work on the garden for the next month (b/c I work every other weekend), and we are going to love it.
- and how do you say that and become satisfied that its not done quickly? (silly work, always getting in the way!)
Its the getting up and going that is the hardest part! Working out is the same way for me! haha I have to envision myself doing it and then, bam! I can do it. I'm attempting the same thing with the garden. Slowly, its working.
Mainly, where do you get your motivation for the 'Honey-Do' projects? Do you have a specific timeline or a checklist of things that are most important? On my list is that dang fence - random people keep walking through my backyard, and I am not cool with that. At least I haven't said anything yet. You all know how that can go ;)
Ah. The brain. A marvelous thing. That is why, at 2:15 am, I am up thinking about this "Honey-Do" list that I keep adding to. I'm sure we've all been there!!
Suggestions are most welcome! And so is a nap.
