I haven't abandoned my blog. I'm just struggling with some issues... personal discipline issues more than anything. I keep letting time go by. I'm not typically a time waster. Ugh. I'm so lazy and unmotivated lately. My own disorganized mind would be bad enough of a mess right now, but it also seems like I am constantly at the mercy of someone else's plans, time clock, decisions or lack thereof... I can't make a decision or do anything or go any where or try anything or set any thing in motion. It's been that way for years. I feel hog tied and hamstrung, and I'm sort of watching myself slip away and not even trying very hard lately to stop it. That's unacceptable. Basically, that's just a lame excuse for getting "out of the groove", BUT, I'm the type to jerk myself up by the bootstraps. I'm never down for long.
I need to come in and post a follow up on the lighting situation, and I will, I promise, but that means I probably should go get another fixture and install it. I have good enough info about it already to probably make a decision and let you know what I came to, but I still want to try one more thing. We'll see. I need to any way.
I also need to try my hand at some plumbing in the kitchen and blog a little about that. Living small like we do makes things pretty accessible and I think I can take care of this stuff, no problem. The biggest problem is having a relatively large section of the house out of commission while I do it.
I have a couple of far more serious structural issues, too, and I may go into a big fix, or I may just figure out how to patch and reinforce it. I don't want to cut corners or half do it, but if a good patch job is as effective and durable as a big overhaul, I'm all for the patch.
