Could You Spare Some Motivation?

No seriously, because I need like ALOT.   I’m not sure the last time I actually wrote a post but I have easily ten draft posts I could finish up and share, but no, that has seemed entirely too overwhelming to even think about lately.  OHHHH but then I read about the dang Proverb’s woman who basically never sleeps because she joyously works all day long every day and is freaking awesome at everything she does.

So here I am, working again, albeit poorly. At least it’s a start.

The truth about how I got to this zero motivation stage is just plain and simple burnout. The hubs and I worked so hard leading up to Caleb’s birthday party (two months ago already!) and really just wore ourselves out.  It’s somewhat true that we have been busy with family in town and VBS at the church,  but mainly we are just tired.  We have actually finished a few projects like baseboards in the entry way, painting some more trim, caulking the kitchen sink, and painting the exterior (paid someone else!!), but mainly we have been doing everything we can to NOT work on the house.

Instead of actually making progress and completing projects though, I’ve been doing what I do best: making plans and buying things for more projects.  Yep, I’m a starter, not a finisher. I get so excited to get a project off the ground but finishing is worse than nails screeching on a chalk board. Seriously, the internal battle that rages inside my mind would surely land me numerous medications could a psychiatrist actually hear what was going on in there!

I have a feeling the Proverb’s woman finished projects though. Convicted. Again. Ugh.

So this week, I’m trying to find some motivation to not just plan and purchase for the fun stuff but to finish up the task I most abhor, painting the rest of the wood trim.  It’s really not that bad except that I hate it with a passion.  Unfortunately, no one else is going to do it for me and I’m seriously starting to have anxiety over the fact that I still need to do it.  I think I’m finally at the stage where the thought of doing it is actually worse than actually doing it will be.  Does that make sense?

Anyways, it’s Friday now. It was Monday when I started this.  Guess what, I still haven’t started sanding the trim.  I’m about to start though, that’s why I’m ending this post and calling it complete!!
