Time to get crack-a-lackin’.
Time. Time is not something that seems to be in abundance over here at Casa Bona Fide. There never seems to be enough time in my days and weeks. With the upcoming switch to full-time status, I don’t know how I expect to find more time, but somehow I need to. Time is a precious thing to waste.
I have so many unrealized projects in my home. I seem to have slacked off a bit after the holidays. Does that happen to anyone else? Do you run out of steam after the mad holiday rush? I do. I wish I could be like so many of you that spend the first few weeks of the year cleaning, organizing, and making a fresh start. I seemed to have hit a stall.
I suppose the fact that I am beginning to fret over this is a good sign. It’s a sign that I am getting restless and I am moving toward “project mode” once again.
Here is a reminder of the projects waiting for me. (This is more of a reminder for me than it is for you.)
The 4th Bedroom, aka “Laura’s Room”, which in 2010 will become our Craft Room.
My son’s Bedroom is still waiting for a mother’s touch.
Other projects on the horizon are repainting the Dining Room because I cannot stand the color I chose for the walls, painting and decorating my stark white finished basement, and finally doing something with the kids’ bathroom.
As for DIY I have several chairs that need painting and upholstered seats and also some spare thrift store furniture items that need the DIY touch: a dresser, 2 headboards, a shelving unit, and a desk.
Well, I might just find the time after all because just thinking about it has gotten my creative juices flowing again. I am ready to get movin on these projects! After 2 years in this home I think it is time to whip it into shape. Stay tuned.
How about you? Do you hit the New Year full steam ahead? Or, like me, do you slip into a bit of a slump in January?
Any projects on your calendar? Do tell.
