The month of August is always slow for my type of business and that's when it's dangerous for me to get into trouble. This August wasn't any different. So yesterday, I get up and decide, this is the day I'll start a grand scheme long term project idea. This time it happens to be painting the inside of our house.
I have been patching holes, sanding, patching more holes and sanding some more with the hopes that in the end, the place will look better than when I started. But by the time the sun started to say goodbye to the day, my arms felt like dish rags, and I hurt in places I didn't know I had, Then, when I looked at the dust and mess all around me, I found myself scratching my head and questioning my sanity for having started this at all.
Fortunately I have a stubborn streak inside me that won't let me abandon a project once it's started which is a good thing otherwise I'd be in even bigger trouble.
It might take a while working this in between other things I have on the go but as long as I get it done before the snow flies and the windows are frozen shut I guess it will be okay. I'm not very patient though so I don't think it will take forever. Besides I won't be able to stare at the white spots for very long before it drives me bonkers.
