Y’all!! One month!! That’s what I have left to get this condo ready to put on the market. One month.
I woke up in a panic this morning with that thought buzzing through my head, and a knot in my stomach.
I tend to have what Matt and I call “Wonder Woman Syndrome”, where I think I’m capable of far more than I really am. So when I look around at all of the projects I still need to finish, somehow in my mind, it all seems perfectly reasonable and completely do-able in one month.
I still have one bathroom that hasn’t even been touched, other than the wallpaper I started stripping off the walls about four years ago. But that shouldn’t be a big deal, right? I can do a complete bathroom makeover in three days, right?
And I still need to finish the built-in closets in our bedroom, but that should be simple! Just a couple days on that and I’ll get those whipped out for sure!
And then there are the bookcases in the living room that I still haven’t started. Just a couple of days on those, and they’ll be good to go, I’m sure!
And the second bedroom needs to be completely repainted, because even I’m reasonable enough to know that black walls need to be repainted before putting a home on the market. But that should just take a couple of hours, right?
See what I mean? Wonder Woman Syndrome.
The good thing is that I’ve lived with this Wonder Woman Syndrome for so long now I’m getting better at distinguishing the delusional timelines and goals in my head from what will play out in reality.
Another good thing is that my in-laws will be here on Sunday, and my father-in-law is willing and ready to help me with whatever needs to be done. (I just hope he understood what he was getting himself into when he volunteered to help me!! I have a loooooooooooong list waiting for him!!) 😀
I’m sure it’ll all get done. I just need to breathe, organize my time very well, make lists, and have a clear idea of what NEEDS to get done vs. what I WANT to get done.
It’s gonna be a whirlwind kind of month!!
So when can I put YOU on the schedule to help? 😀
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
