Procrastination is the name of the game.

I'll admit it. I'm lazy.

But sometimes I feel like I deserve to be lazy. I work full time, 30 miles from home, AND take care of all the cooking and cleaning in the house, DAMNNIT! I work very hard at keeping everyone on track at work (and at home) So why do I feel so guilty?
Maybe it's because I've been blogging about this bathroom for months. It was supposed to be our summer project.

Last night while lying on the couch... I realized that I don't think Dave or I really want to get started on another project. We have become master procrastinators, doing anything and everything to avoid the task at hand. This week we were planning on at least starting to strip the walls... But we never did. Instead, I did every available bit o laundry in the house, gave the cat a bath, went to the dentist... I even left the state and flew to NY. Dave is no better. He went out with his friends, fixed a fan that hasn't worked in 2 years, built Arnold a scratching post, and started working out again.

So I guess you could say procrastination is making us be more "productive"... but not for the right reasons.

Don't worry, what you're feeling is natural. You can only work on your house so much before you just want to be done with it. Eventually you just want to live in your house, not continually be working on it.

I'm at the same place on our house.

Good luck kids!

Yeah-- We hit a wall after a while with our house too. It's been a few years and I'm ready to get started again.
