Swistle's most recent post got me to thinking...well, actually I have been thinking this for a while but that post made me want to articulate what I've been thinking.
As we all know, there are MANY projects that I would love to have done around here - including that stupid front door that STILL isn't done. In fact, there has been absolutely NO progress on this front.
Yes, I should probably step in and start making phone calls...but, here's the thing...he knows more about this kind of thing than I do and has connections that I don't.
BUT - The Husband, who has been dithering over whether or not to fix or replace the shed for the last year or so finally made a decision. And *just like that* the shed has been fixed and re-painted - and from the time it took for him to make the decision to completion was just two weeks. Imagine.
But yet, here we are THREE years later and that front door? Apparently, not a priority in his book...despite the fact that he *just* remarked how dreary the house is when it's overcast. *sigh*
Now, I'm not going to lie...having the shed usable is great, as the garage doesn't need to house EVERY.SINGLE.THING! and I am reaping the benefits of it. But, I'm a tad resentful, as that seems to have had a higher priority to the one, little thing that I desire.
All this tells me that, sometimes it seems that my priorities seem to take a backseat to his priorities. And we need to have a conversation about that.
But then, sometimes our priorities happen to align...aka The Juniper.
|This is only a portion of it - it spans the entire front yard,|
including the other side of the driveway.
We both agree it is an eyesore - infested with weeds and snakes. And, the majority of it should be removed next week. Hopefully.
After the door debacle, as you might imagine, I have my doubts...but *fingers crossed*
Next on the list? That damn front door.
