How I'm Avoiding that One Big Project I Need to Get Done



I'm in project mode. I'm knocking out tiny projects all over the house and garden. Go me, right? Well, I'm doing all these little tasks mainly to avoid the one big project I'm dreading...

Pulling up the carpet and linoleum in the guest cottage so I can paint the floor. Prepare yourselves for much wailing and gnashing of teeth. 

You have been warned. 

And why do I always decide to take all these things on during beekeeping and gardening season? I know! Let's destroy everything all at the same time while we're busy with bee swarms and hive inspections. Yes, that's right. I'm the queen of the awesome plan. This explains a lot about my life.

While I'm putting off the dreaded task I'll also write blog posts about the procrastinator projects I'm doing! Further making it look like I'm being super productive while I am really just crying in a corner over the work involved in removing the last bit of carpet in a 20 year floor covering purge. 

Here's a fun fact: Honey and beeswax will completely destroy (by "destroy" I mean create more work than I am willing to do to clean it up) carpet and embossed linoleum. Yet I put them on my face all the time. Go figure.  

Fun fact #2: I'd actually rather do a huge project than clean up after myself. But you do see that the carpet is ugly, right? 

Fun fact #3: Procrastination is my super power. I'm doing it right now by writing this post instead of getting busy on any of these projects!


Y'all I am actually looking around my house right this second noticing even more furniture that needs to be painted (like this hutch) and areas that need to be organized. No. Just no. I have put this carpet pull up and floor painting on the calendar to be done this month  (but it would actually make sense to paint this piece on the carpet instead of bothering with a drop cloth later).

So...before June first this project will be finished.
