My first blog post... OMG!!

This weeks SITS project is to get back to blogging.
Re-post your first blog post.

Here it is:
Dated: Saturday, September 26, 2009
Titled: Small progress in the house.

I have had the hubby home all week due to the rainy weather.

I have only managed to get one project done this week.

I tore out one side of my closet, then put in a new floor and 3 bookshelves.

I spent the rest of the evening filling up all those bookshelves.

That was 2 days ago and I still have some muscles hurting.

I have been trying to get my bedroom cleaned out of storage boxes and junk, so I can lay down new floor and fix the ceiling.

I am still hoping to get more of the house done before Thanksgiving.

Most of my family is coming to my house this year.

I volunteered us for it last year, thinking I would be done with the renovations.

Money, man power and the weather have held back a lot of the progress.

If I am lucky I will not lose my gusto.

Let me just say... OMG! I have to be the laziest person EVER!!!

Nearly one year later and guess what I have been going for the last month...go ahead guess...MOVING OUT THOSE BOXES!!! Looks like I wasn't so lucky and lost, walked away from and ignored my gusto! When I did have the gusto, I used it on other projects and put my room on the back burner. Funny how things have changed in the past year and yet stayed the same too.

Well you will be glad to know that all boxes and junk has been moved out of the room and put into storage (that happened just this last Saturday) and the ceiling has been Kilz'ed but not fixed though. The floor and painting is next, I did start the wall cleaning yesterday. Gawd I hope it doesn't take me another year to finish, that would just be too embarrassing!!

I must go and crawl in a corner and hang my head in shame and give myself a good lashing...GET YOUR LAZY BIG FAT BUTT OUT OF THE CHAIR AND GET BACK TO WORK!!!

Come on folks, yell at me! I need it!

What an interesting post. I'm afraid to look at my first one, but I will.

I love this kind of post that lets me know I'm not the only one. Sorry no can yell at you, only gratitude here. XD

No yelling here...I have projects from YEARS ago that are not complete!

Cannot yell. I'm an expert at starting things, and I always finish the very first parts of projects. Then I run out of steam, lose interest, go on to something else . . . it's so easy to find an excuse to put it off a little bit longer.

I caN'T YELL AT YOU BECAUSE i am a procrastinator myself. Put it off, put it off.

yeah, I'm pretty bad myself. I bought new curtains around Christmas time and I just got 2 sets up. 1 more to go! But, hey -- we're busy, right?!

Hell, I've been going to paint my bathroom since I moved in - a YEAR ago. No yelling here.

LOL. My first blog post was on MySpace and I deleted it out of fear it would hurt the person I wrote it about. At least you know you've grown!

I remember reading this post! Too funny. You know? A year really does fly by. I know one thing.. I'm not documenting my projects online. Haha.
