Intervention

What is the word for someone that never completes a project? I actually tried to Google that and I didn’t come up with anything. Whatever it is, unfortunately, it describes both Dan and me. Which, I guess, is why over the past 16 years not one single project has been completely, all the way, finished around our house. There is always something left behind, trim around the door upstairs, posts not cut to height on the fence, siding put on the top part of the garage… the list goes on. We literally have never finished any job we’ve started on this house.

Which is pretty scary considering how much finish work is still left in this remodel. So how do we handle that? Do we go room by room finishing things off? No, we head outside and completely destroy the yard in an effort to redo the landscaping, remove the cement walkway, put in a new patio and add an outdoor kitchen area. WHAT? Are you serious? We really have a problem!

This all started because of that damn drywell, that hopefully will help with the flooding the backyard. It really better eliminate the flooding!

Oh my, at one point the back yard was actually a nice space. I don’t think I really appreciated like I should have.

The boys have got to be SO sick of all of these house projects. I suggested to Thomas that we could start flipping house and he vehemently disagreed! He does not want to be part of any more remodeling!

But he did finally get to drive the tractor.

Well that is definitely a clean slate, just waiting for us to do something with it. Dare I say, finish it…

Yes, even the side yard was destroyed in the process.

  1. If the truth were known, no one ever really finishes house projects! It is an endless task. Haven’t seen the backyard lately, but even with your interior projects unfinished, your house always seems comfy and inviting to me (and your adopted daughter, Hannah!)
