Busy Busy Bees

Well, it seems as though 2011 has been busier than we ever expected it to be.  And, unfortunately, our lil 'ol blog has been quite neglected because of it.  Sadly, we haven't had much time to do any projects around the house, however, our "to-do" list is growing everyday.  

See, we are pretty good at starting projects and are really motivated and excited in the beginning, then, when it comes time to do all of the little tedious parts of the project to finish them up (i.e. caulking and painting trim), our project momentum comes to a screeching halt.  We literally got our pantry and closet project done in two days, and the trim has yet to be painted...months and months later (actually probably close to a year).   

So, before we can start any new projects, we agreed that all of our other "little things" needed to get finished. So, if we want to get started on the new deck we have planned to be built by Spring, we have a lot of tedious trim, baseboard, and crown molding painting to do. I guess we'll just have to suck it up and get it done, as much as it hurts.  

It's probably best to do it now, when the weather is ever so cold here in Georgia, and there's very little sunshine to enjoy!  

However, we are still really excited about our plans for our huge deck project that will be used as our outdoor living and dining room that we will be able to enjoy with friends and family during the spring,summer, and fall. We pretty much can't wait, because who doesn't love eating outside? Well, I know we do! 

Now, off to grab my paintbrush and recycled coffee jug (full of paint of course), and get back to painting.  I think I may still be painting a week from now (but, lets hope not).
