In preparation for putting our house back up for sale, I’ve made a deal with myself. “I” offered that “I” would do one project each day that is above and beyond my usual tasks. Because I am pretty busy with those said usual tasks – you know, cooking, cleaning, laundry, making sure no one gets badly injured, changing a diaper (or five or six), dropping off and picking up from school, etc., I was glad when “I” offered to work on the items on my get-the-house-ready-for-sale list. So I accepted. Here’s an example of what “I” have accomplished so far:
- rearrange some items to make our space look bigger
- continue to go through our “stuff” and get rid of anything we don’t need anymore
- wash walls
- rake the yard
- redo some wallpaper border in spots that were peeling
- fix a cabinet door – this involved gluing AND hammering – “I” was pretty proud
You get the idea. It’s been nothing but fun and games around here lately!
Funny thing is, we are getting a lot accomplished around here. It’s amazing what “I” can get done when “I” set my mind to it. Focusing on one task a day has made it all feel less overwhelming.
Overall I’m pretty happy with my deal. “I” might have a permanent gig here.
