I love the DIY stuff, the projects and the crafts, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. There are a million reasons why - but I'll talk about what's been going on here lately.
#1- we had a MAJOR push on Sarah's room over the last month or so. She's moved in (sorta) and we're feeling a little burned out. We just wanted a smidge of relaxation on a weekend instead of working 'til the wee hours and missing a few football games on TV. We still have a ton of projects to do which will make it to the blog, but those are on hiatus for a week or so.
#2 - Just this past weekend I spent most of Saturday outside on a project (which WILL be shared), but we're only halfway done and the interesting/exciting parts haven't happened yet, so no post on that. It's good and we will be VERY glad to have it all done. It's been exhausting work though, so we took Sunday off. Hint: It's dog related.
#3 - I'm short on ideas in the craft department. Usually when I get burned out on DIYing - like the thought of painting or sanding something just is so unappealing - it's time to bust out the Mod Podge, craft paper, or sewing machine. But I'm plum out of ideas - oh and I still haven't replaced that ever-so-important piece of the sewing machine. I don't expect this dry spell to last long, though.
#4 - Kids. There are times when we'd love to spend every waking hour just banging out projects, but the kids just won't have it. They want to go to the park, play on the swing-set, hit up the firehouse open-house or church fair, and watch family movies. We love indulging them on this stuff, but the time spent does come out of our DIY time. It's a balancing act - we love the results of our hard work but we need to be mommy & daddy too.
Not that I'm making excuses, just tryin' to keep it real here in blogland.
What are the thing that get in YOUR way? Kids? Work? Flu? Or just a little lazy??
