Ahhh. A week’s vacation. What a treat.
Time with family, watching TV and a few movies, reading, writing, sleeping in.
In between all of this relaxing, though, I’m not sure what I accomplished last week. As you can probably guess, I begin most vacations with somewhat ambitious plans of things I’m going to do around the house. I’ve learned to manage my expectations and that I enjoy my vacations more if I don’t put pressure on myself to finish all the things.
However, I usually finish at least some of the things. Not so this time.
I feel like I’m coming out of this vacation with a whole bunch of half-started and un-started projects. Everything from a spring living room refresh, new pillows for the basement, a dress I’m sewing and of course the never-ending office makeover.
I’m usually pretty good about keeping myself focused on one particular project. So having a list of things that I want to happen all over the house is making me a bit twitchy.
But I’m also excited. Maybe spring is in the air.
Who am I? Where did this project ADD come from?
Some of these projects are dependent on each other. I needed to get the office set up again–or at least my sewing machine–so that I can sew the pillows and my dress. The new pillows in the basement will mean some of the other pillows move upstairs to be part of the living room refresh.
Another week off would be very helpful to get all of this done. But I’m happy with how last week went.
You may notice in the photo above that my slipper chair is almost upholstered. Just two pesky corners to go. And a morning at the local fabric district with my Mom means I have all of the supplies for my other various projects.
I’m looking forward to these spring projects.
Do you have any spring projects on your list? Do you like productive or relaxing vacations?
