Are We There Yet? Are We There Yet?

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.

I'll be back...
