I've never been all that good at the doing part. I want the pictures in my mind to appear in real life with little to no effort. That goes for both who I want to be and what I want around me. Lately, instead of looking for perfection (those pictures in my head), I'm looking simply for progress.
It helps me to have a concrete plan and accountability. Without the second part of the formula, my lack of discipline rears its ugly head and strikes me lazy every time. So annoying.
That being said, I wanted to share here (accountability) what Ryan and I are doing these days. You see, our new house needs some TLC. The problem is, we are the type of people that ramble on and on with ideas and say this needs to be done and that needs to be done and then we freeze because we get all overwhelmed.
So we've decided to tackle our home one room at a time, one weekend at a time.
And we've already started. GO TEAM!
Last weekend, we conquered The Office.
Wanna see what it looked like last Friday?
Bare walls and disorganized stuff. Yup, that's about it.
Now come with me, if you will.
Let me introduce you to the new office.
Yeah, there ya go...step a little closer...
Here we are...
Another step in...
Oh, come on and come inside...
now go ahead and tilt that cute little noggin of yours...
and turn again to see...
and the $4.50 desk chair from Goodwill?
Next room, the one being worked on this very weekend?
I'll show her to you in the next installment of One Room at a Time.
Thank you for visiting.
Oh! P.S. I thought you might want to see some things up close:
(I was trying to show you paint colors, but they totally change color through the camera lens (trickers). But, hey! I tried. And trying is how you do the progress thing.)
Oh, the PEEP thing? That's just a little feeding frenzy photo for my friends Seth, Kelly and Sara - some fellow Peep-lovin' fools.
Really The End.
