This holiday season I approached my to do list with amazing vigor. I wanted to get everything done so that the new year could focus on my WIP that has been gathering a little too much dust. I hemmed my drapes, I hung pictures, I cleared the boxes out of the guest room, installed the area rug and new chandelier in the dining room, and I painted the bathroom, man cave, and dining room. I even decorated for Christmas. The outlook for the new year was looking great.
Two days after Christmas I realize when hanging my plate rack I drilled into a drain pipe. My beautiful antique leather walls went from looking like this:
To looking like this.
So it was back to the home improvement store. Patching pipes and walls, and repainting.... Then the same day the washing machine died, then a week later it was my printer. My to do list was regrowing at a quick rate. But it was a great reminder, that we can't find extra time for our writing. It will never happen.
