Thoughts of Escape

Update: This blog has moved! You can check out this post here.

It is rewarding to renovate your house, especially when you are doing the work yourself. Unfortunately, it is maddening to renovate your house, especially when you are doing the work yourself. Such are the dualities of life. In order to experience the good, we must withstand the evil. Therein lies the difficulty.

When your house is a mess, and you just discovered another glitch in the plan, it is hard to keep your eyes on the prize. The light at the end of the tunnel seems awfully far away.

Sad over difficult renovation

  1. I am so glad you wrote this post. Too often (heck it seems like ALL of the DIY blogs I read) it seems like things are just smooth sailing all the way. I think it helps tremendously to interject a little reality. I know for a fact that things would not go well if my husband and I attempted to do DIY renovation. I applaud you and yours in doing what you are doing.

    • I do try to keep it real. It is definitely hard to do these kinds of projects yourself, but the end is rewarding. Of course, the end can be rewarding even if you pay someone to do the job for you! You have to know what is best for you.

  2. Love your blogs. You are so honest! Creme reminds me of Speedbump, who tries to escape everytime Jack takes his bike out the front door.! Looking forward to seeing your Cape of Dreams soon.

  3. I can SO relate to this! Two little words struck me: final nail. Yes, someday there really WILL be a final nail in our coffin–er, I mean kitchen!!! It will be months from now, but thanks for reminding me that just as there was a beginning to this project, there will also be a victorious end if we just keep pluggin’ away!
    Lacy says “mew” to Creme. (Actually she says something like “reh!” I’m not sure how she spells it.)

I would love to hear what you have to say about this post!
