I´m a bit of a mess these days. And so is the house! Ha!
No, seriously. We´ll be leaving for our big "summer" holiday in three weeks time (yay!). But before that, we´ll be out of town for one weekend, which leaves us two weekends to finish the aproximately 134 house projects that have to be finished before the first snow falls (which we have been told will happen somewhen early November). All of these projects concern the exterior of the house and the garden, so there has not been much time to tackle the inside.
Which bothers me especially as we´ll have house sitters at our place for the three weeks we´ll be on holiday. See, before I can welcome any guests to my house, it needs to be perfect. I´ll clean and re-decorate for the plumber (well not really, but you get the idea). To leave the house in its current state to longer-term guests completely freaks me out.
Also, this blog. I always thought "when we buy a house I´ll document every step of the renovation". Internet, I was stupid. By the time we get home in the evening from our looong commute it´s dark and I want to go to bed. On the weekends I get up extra early so that I can fit in as much work as possible in the day. And guess what, while working nonstop, I don´t really feel like picking up the camera or writing blog posts.
Things will get better though... I knew the first time would be hard for me, and now it is. It will pass, and eventually I will get around to painting the living room, or, uhm, buying the paint for the living room or even making a decision which color the living room should be (anyone?). Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
