Okay, so here’s the deal.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking this week…lots of evaluating, planning, thinking, dreaming, etc. I’m sure that’s come across in my posts this week.
On Tuesday I shared with you about my biggest and most irritating personality flaw…the fact that I’m a starter and not a finisher. That is THE reason that not one single room in my home is finished. See that tab up there on my menu that says “Rooms I Designed”? You will not see one single room of my own listed…because none of them are finished!!!
Then yesterday I shared my top ten reasons that I’m finished with condo living. I’m done. I’ve over it. I want a house!
But here’s the deal. Even if Matt and I had the downpayment for a house saved up, and found a house that we loved today, there’s simply no way we could put the condo on the market with all of these unfinished projects! So something has to give here. And that “something” would be ME. If I really want home ownership badly enough (again), then I should be motivated enough to get myself in gear and make it happen.
I should be motivated enough to make these projects happen…to get them finished already.
I should be motivated enough to be fully prepared for the next “phase”…home ownership (or rather, HOUSE ownership, since I do currently own my home…it’s just that my home is a condo rather than a house).
From the comments (thank you for each and every one of them, by the way!!!) I’ve realized that I’m not alone in needing to get projects done. I’m far from alone!!
So I’ve decided to start something new here. It’s called…
But here’s the deal…
I want you to join me!!!
I jokingly mentioned a “support group” for people like me. Well, now I’m not joking. I’m actually forming a support and encouragement group, where we’ll all help and motivate each other to complete our lingering projects.
It won’t be a link party, because non-bloggers wouldn’t be able to join in. It’ll just be a post where we can all check in, report progress, and commit to finishing projects that have been hanging over our heads for a while now. If you have a blog and want to write about the project, and then leave a link on Mondays, that’s great. But if you’re not a blogger, I still want you to feel free to join in. No link necessary.
Are you in? I’m excited! Perhaps accountability is just what I need to get it done.
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!
