Okay. This time it took more than five minutes, but the amount of time it took to fix (one trip to IKEA + ~10 minute of potting + ~10 minutes of arranging) pales in comparison to the amount of time I have spent feeling stressed about the entryway of our home.
I wish I weren't someone who cared so much about the aesthetics of my surroundings, but I do. It's as if my mind is a permeable membrane that is absorbing the chaos (or the beauty) of whatever is around me.
I just wish I were motivated to fix the areas that bug me instead of letting them stress me out for months (or even years).
Instead of berating myself, I should just ask, "So what's bothering you and what can you quickly fix?"
- Matt and I are actually in the middle of planning a big change; we are consolidating Henry and Tate into one room and then turning the extra room into a guess room and an office.
- We need to reorganize our outdoor closet.
- We need to use OxyClean on our outdoor cushions.
Okay, I need to stop there before the list becomes stressful. I'm looking forward to Winter Break when I get get a lot of these projects done!
