The Husband and I took today off in a valiant attempt to tackle some of those pesky projects. Our thinking was that during the weekends we usually have to deal with errands, laundry, cleaning, etc. Today was supposed to be all about projects. No laundry, no errands, no cleaning. Nothing but focusing on the list and getting stuff done.
As of now, not one thing on the list of projects was touched.
My phone, which has been giving me grief for about a month and then magically fixed itself, reared it's ugly head and started acting up again.
My garage door, which we JUST had repaired, also decided to break a spring.
So instead of spending the day working on projects, The Husband and I found ourselves dealing with those issues. Which, while these issues have been dealt with, meant that the entire day was wasted.
It's so frustrating. Yes, I know. I can't actually expect that in ONE day we could have gotten through the list, but I expected to have at least made headway. That the backyard would be ONE step closer to being finished, the porch - while it couldn't have been painted today, could have been cleaned off and ready to go should the weather cooperate tomorrow. One or more doors could have been sanded. SO much could have been accomplished but wasn't.
I keep reminding myself that it could be worse. Friends a little north of us had a tornado touch down last night (they are all okay and no damage to the house) and are now dealing with a GIANT tree down in front of their home. And, as they just discovered, their homeowner's insurance will not cover the cost of removing it. Unbelievable.
So here's to tomorrow. Hopefully dawning cool and with no humidity. Maybe then we can start to make headway on that list. But, to be honest, at this point, I'm not counting my chickens...
