Winter blues

It’s been a several weeks since I posted anything.

Firstly, Merry Christmas! I hope it was a wonderful time with food, family, and drink.

After the ORC living room challenge, I was so happy and invigorated. Then tired, and wanted to take a week off. Then that week turned into another and so forth until I am here in a major FUNK.

Cripes. Could I get anymore self pitying?! The answer is yes, probably.

I feel ok with being mediocre at self pitying.

The struggle is real though, right? It seems like most blogs on home renovation are ever steadfast in their positive outlooks and cranking those projects out tirelessly.

I don’t seem to be that person, and then I feel guilty about it. Like I let someone down.

This blog has been so helpful and you readers are such a blessing. I want to be real about it though. Sometimes I get tired. Sometimes the decisions on a million little insignificant (to the general public) details gets wearing. Sometimes the financial aspect gets overwhelming. Most times my house isn’t clean enough for pretty pictures. A lot of times, I would rather be netflixing.

Point is, I want to get over this funk.

Writing this out has already been cathartic and I am ready to get back to projects for the new year.

Thank you for your company at my pity party.

  1. I know how you feel. My house is never clean either. It’s hard to work on projects, take care of kids, and clean the house. Renovations cause messes. I have cans and cans of paint sitting around, waiting to be put away. But I know I’ll need them again. I typically feel worse when I’m between projects. Starting a new project is exciting and gives me purpose. It’s a vicious cycle.
    Could it be depression? SADS is always a concern for me. This time of year is the worst, with such little daylight. Just thought I should mention it. I hope you feel better soon.

    1. Emy – you totally get it. It’s hard in MN winter when it’s dark most of the day. I’m planning on getting a light for SAD light therapy. Thank you so much for the encouragement. ?
