little confession

I consider myself a DIYer. I feel a certain feeling of accomplishment and pride when I enhance my house with little projects to show my personality. I have been very stunted in this department lately. I feel very overwhelmed on my own trying to accomplish it all. I have gone as far as completely avoiding all my projects, maybe they will all do it themselves!  Well I have a nasty confession

I just hired someone to finish all the projects around the house I started and never finished before Soldier boy left. I feel a little guilty.

Somehow it has liberated me!
 Made me want to tackle the smaller projects I want to do with the kids, projects to decorate for the holidays. Installing crown molding, putting up baton board and finishing the master bath by myself, just it's a project I could comprehend. I am excited to see how it all turns out! Less than 200 days until we have to pack up and get out of here. I need to get the house in tip top order before Soldier boy comes back and we put the house up on the market. Now those project holding me back are someone else's job. I can spend the evening molding clay, painting burlap, and making jewelry with the kids, without feeling guilty that I should be doing this or that- someone else is doing it for me!

  1. NEVER feel guilty for that. I realized about a year ago that I was spending 8-9 hours a week working (out of the home, but still...working). I also realized that if I continued to take time every week to vacuum, change sheets, clean toilets, etc....I would never get to play with my kids. EVER. (Or at least be able to do it without guilt for blowing off housework...) So I took part of the money I earned, and put it towards a twice-a-month house cleaner. It's one of the best decisions I've made all year! Sometimes, we have a little extra cash around...that can free up a LOT of our time to do what we WANT.

  2. Hello!! I am in the process of building that awesome pantry next to your fridge for holding cans and my husband is convinced it is screwed to something so the unit will not completely slide out. Thanks so much again for the awesome idea. What a space saver!!!!
