Blue Mama is hosting this week - That nosy lady is peeking out of the fish bowl and into our job jars! This is what she says:
I want you to show me your......projects. More to the point, I want to see your unfinished projects. I have so many that I really need some reassurance that I'm not the only one. Home improvement projects are what I have in mind, but it you don't have any of those show me any kind of project - needlework, cooking, scrapbooking, etc. You can even show me your spouse if they qualify as a work in process.
First of all, let me tell you that I am the QUEEN of unfinished projects. I am sure there's a book in there somewhere, if only I had the time to write it!
I have three major unfinished projects at the moment:
The House. We moved into an older home last May and have been doing-it-ourselves ever since. Half of the downstairs is painted. All the bedrooms upstairs are painted, but have yet to see curtains or artwork hung on the walls. This past week, I managed to get the family room in shape enough to have people visit it. If you've been hanging around long enough, you've seen the diningroom change colors and get a new floor - still waiting on one piece of quarter-round and a couple of thresholds in there.
But inspite of my seeming lack of progress, progress has indeed been made. I am eating more thoughtfully now than I used to. I don't swill sweet tea all the time but have made water my drink of choice. And I don't fall victim to these anymore:
And my third project is my novel. You're probably getting sick of NaNoWriMo updates (though I've tried to keep them far and few between). My weekend away didn't happen, thanks to a sick kid and my granddaughter coming as well. Darling Man PROMISES me a night away this week. The end of the month is Friday. As of right now, I have 29,106 words. I need 50,000. When I finish this post, I will bang out a couple thousand more. I will be wearing wrist braces by the end of the week, I'm sure. But I am determined to finish this project! It is something I have ALWAYS wanted to do and by golly, I'm a'gonna do it!
