Lost My Motivation

I have just the main bathroom to paint and put down a floor.

These are shots of the floor.

I am not a pink person and this floor has made me crazy long enough. Even scrubbed it looks dirty. Ugh.
Then we have the walls.

Yes, they are different colors. 

As you can see hardware is off the walls, I have washed them. I just need to start painting. Today, I cannot make myself do it. It is the last room in the house and it needs to be done. Then I will allow myself to go back to packing up stuff I am not using. (Which also means finding more stuff for a moving sale). 

Oh, wait, someone has to come look at the house before they can buy it. Then they have to like the house. The only thing progressing on my house is my painter comes around 3 o'clock most afternoons and works until 8 or 9 pm. So the outside of the house is progressing. 

Just feeling down in the dumps I guess.

Here We are in August

How did we get here? I am still frustrated at not having my house sold. I know it's only been a month.

We have made great strides on painting the outside of my house. I have hired someone to finish it. He starts this week. I have torn apart the main bathroom and am busy getting it ready to paint. 

I have to take a break on house stuff tomorrow to mow the lawn. I will spend about two to four hours on that. But it will look better when it's done.

I went to South Carolina to look at a couple of houses. I really thought I'd be putting in an offer on one of them. I was wrong. I did however come back with a game plan for the next trip down. I'm going to spend a week and look at houses and condos every day. I'm making a list of what I must have and them I'm going to look at the pros and cons of each. I am really not a condo person, having grown up in rural areas, I'm not fond of city life.

In the meantime, I work on the house and pack up things I'm not using. No one said this was going to be easy.



My laptop has been at full capacity for the past two weeks. It's nice to be consistently writing again. It's been hit or miss for...
