I would rather

scrapbook, go shopping, swim, go out to eat, plan a party, have a clean house ...... anything other than what needs to be accomplished.  Of course, isn't that how it always is, if someone said I had to scrapbook right now, I'd probably find some other endeavor I'd rather do.  

2 houses and things to do at each is very overwhelming.  Aaron was laid-off on Friday so now we will have some time but he's helping out some people right  now .... so I'm still on my own.  We made a smaller list of "to-dos" at the current house, it didn't even fill up a piece of construction paper.  I'm scheduling 2 weeks!  Then we MUST get this house on the market and get to working on the BIG house.  I'm coming to terms with things at the BIG house.  After scraping some paint on the stairs I will be living with mostly white woodwork, which is very trendy right now .... I'm even tempted to rip up carpeting upstairs and have painted pine floors for a while until we can afford new hardwood.  We'll see .... It's going to be a work-in-progress for a loooooonnnnngggg time!  It will be okay.  I'm try to pack up "extra" clutter and stuff here and take it to the BIG house but that is also a slow process for me.  I'm just slow!  I seem to be more motivated when my hubby is here.  I also am not sure where to put things so they are out of the way and I don't have to move them several times.  Speaking of which, I have moved these banana boxes no less than 30 times.  They've been on my porch in several places, in the house, in the yard, on the sidewalk, in the backyard, depending on what project I'm working on and where they have to go for a while.  They did come in hand when I painted the porch .....

paint drying baracade!  Of course, I'd rather build things out of banana boxes than do what needs to be done!
