I’m supposed to have a craft project for my 12-12-12 project ready to post for today.
Let’s just say that isn’t going to happen. Not when my house like a hot mess anyway.
It’s cool I have a million and one ideas and I still love the project I’m just buried under the stress of buying a fixer upper, moving, work (construction in the summer h-e-l-l-o busy), and wedding planning. I will do 12 projects this year, they just might not show up in twelve separate months. What can you do? This is life, it throws you loops, and you take them like a champ and figure out a different plan.
Take this whole house buying thing; as much as I told everyone I knew it was going to be work and everything was going to change I still had on these awesome rose colored glasses. Yeah…well those glasses got crushed somewhere on the interstate after a toppling box-pot hole incident. What I’m seeing now man, it just isn’t pretty.
I had plans for this house and they were good, but now that we are actually living in this thing, I’m not so sure.
The first thing I want to tell you was that re-doing all 1100 square feet of wood floors in our house ourselves was a mistake. I don’t suggest it to anyone, it’s just too much for a couple of novices with full time jobs and a wild dog. That’s all I will say about it.
Now the real question is do I really want a grey bedroom? I’ve been dreaming of a grey bedroom for years, now that I can have it I’m freaking out that will feel all wrong, and you know paint is permanent. At least that’s the way my brain keeps processing it. I don’t have any idea why.
All this cupboard space in the kitchen is so nice, I have so many plans for it, except they are already full, because I am a hoarder and have 5 sets of china. Why do I have 5 full sets of china? Because I’m a food blogger and I need them for interesting pictures. Oh so you use them all the time right? Oh god no that would involve pulling them all out and cleaning them all, because clearly I can’t just bring out a couple to use in photos. Besides I use the same set of plates in all my pictures duh.
Aaannnnd now I am talking typing to myself in the third person. Moving on….
Can someone please explain to me why there are so many options for the shade of light blue? I can’t decide?! They all look exactly the same to me, yet for some reason I’m terrified to choose the wrong one, like I said before paint is totally permanent and everything.
Why are there so many damn bugs in this house? Moths in the bathroom, spiders everywhere and mosquitoes galore. There are side effects to living in the country people, I know, but how are they getting in???
So I think this is a good place to end this post. You get the idea of how ridiculous and frazzled my mind has been, besides I can’t even listen (read?) to myself complain any more. Maybe next week I will get my act together and have a real post, with pictures from a real camera, not just my phone. Also fingers crossed that there is time to cook for real.
