Fun Monday: Unfinished Projects

Blue Momma from Life in the Fishbowl

is hosting this week and wants to

Unfinished Projects
I want you to show me your......projects. More to the point, I want to see your unfinished projects. I have so many that I really need some reassurance that I'm not the only one. Home improvement projects are what I have in mind, but it you don't have any of those show me any kind of project - needlework, cooking, scrapbooking, etc. You can even show me your spouse if they qualify as a work in process.

And please, I WANT PICTURES!!!! You can talk if you want, but you don't have to. I know since you are all bloggers talk is bound to happen, but I most definitely want to see photos of those unfinished projects.

Gack. Just a few minutes ago, I remembered signing up for this and rushed about. What unfinished projects do I want to share. I have a list as long as my arm, but don't we all. Bathrooms that have been tiled, but the cove forgotten. Walls that need to be repainted.

My husband and son qualify as unfinished projects but they didn't want to cooperate I am an unfinished project: Nanowrimo is over as of november 30th and I am almost finished with the story. I keep wanting to type the final "I LOVE YOU" madly passionate ending and have done so 3 times, but that means skipping the last 1/3 of the story. My dad asked for some excitement in the story, besides all the lovely dovey, finding yourself, discovering God stuff. So, Dad - just for you, I am going to blow something up. You'll just have to wait til I'm done writing the story to find out what it is. You sparked my imagination literally. :)

Household unfinished projects:

Horrors: the garage door for which my parents gave us a big check 2 or 3 years ago to replace. We will be having it done soon. Father and I looked at each other this weekend while putting up Christmas Lights on the fence and said together: It's time, lets call Sears.

What's inside the garage door. Hey at least I have a pathway up the middle. Half the stuff came out of Father's office when we redid it last year and didn't make it back in.

Boxes o' books from my pre - marriage days, that are still waiting to be unpacked and shelved. I miss my books and have forgotten what most are. Once the boxes are opened, I won't have to go to the bookstore for another year or be embarrassed by multiple UPS deliveries in one week from Amazon. Maybe!

Christmas Lights. No choice. They must be up by December 1st or the neighbors will form a firing squad and attack. We have one of THOSE neighborhoods.

Last but not least, I have to share a finished project. We redid Father's office a while back. It was left to festered and things piled up, once again. Anything Father's went in and didn't come out. The piles got higher and the mess got messier. He decided it was time and attacked! He finished it just prior to Thanksgiving. I am very proud of him. A very clean, functional office. Now he can get back to drawing schematics, soldering circuit boards and testing whatever electronics things you test.


  1. WOW, that office is neat and that big window must be a bonus. Lots of stuff to do, so little time.

    Oh and I can't believe how many books you have. You could open your OWN bookstore and start sending UPS to others.

  2. I'm so glad I don't live in one of those neighborhoods, as my Christmas lights go up later than they should, if at all. I love having them up - I just don't like actually doing it.

    I'm betting you're going to feel great when you get the garage door in!

  3. I don't know how you can look at those boxes of books and not rip into them. You have true patience and respect for the books. The way you get deliveries from Amazon is the way B&N delivers to me! I call it the "other car payment" in the monthly budget.

  4. First to comment? I've never been first to comment..but today is my lucky day I guess.

    I know so many people who have to park their vehicles outside because of all the "stuff" in the garage. A person almost needs a separate "junk room" in their house so that a person can use their garage.

    One day, it will all be finished the way you want it.

  5. Our neighborhood used to light up. Now it's kind of hit and miss. However, families with kids are moving back, so the lights are coming back, too.

    Hey.. office looks wonderful.

    Thats a lot of books. Someone else was mentioning their books and selling them on Amazon. You have a fortune there.
