Reverb 10 - December 20th

December 20: Beyond Avoidance
What should you have done this year but didn’t because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)

oh, this is easy. we should have finished all the work on the house, including the kitchen, the entryway, the bedroom, etc. we should have stopped being so busy/lazy and painted the kitchen cabinets ourselves. we should have hung up all the art that we've purchased, and I should have taken the time to create my gallery wall for our living room wall. I should have refinished the dining room table and reupholstered the dining room chairs. we should have gotten started with the upstairs of the house... painting walls, arranging furniture, finishing the stairs. 
unfortunately, life got in the way, and a lot of projects got put on hold. the kitchen and entryway are finally being completed, thanks to having some extra funds to hire a contracting company. we were just entirely too busy to do the work ourselves, so I'm glad we at least got those two rooms worked on before the end of the year. I'm not gunna lie... if we weren't busy on the weekends, we were just way too lazy to think about doing major work on the house. we didn't have much time to ourselves, so the time we DID have, we didn't want to spend working.

we have big plans to finish EVERYTHING in 2011. I have a to-do list about a mile long of things that need to be done, and now that the ceiling is replaced in the entryway and the cosmetic work is done in the kitchen, we have the motivation to get to it. we're planning on hanging everything on the walls after the new year, and once the downstairs is finished, we'll move to the upstairs, where we'll set up the office and the spare bedroom. of course, I'll keep everyone updated on the blog on the progress!
