Saturday, October 16, 2010 room at a time...

Ok, before I lose even the little bit of motivation that I have, I'm gonna start up a real basic plan. Here's what I'm thinking. I'll list out the rooms I want to do something with, and set a goal of one room a month. if I get to more than that, great. if not, oh well. and when I get to the end of the list, I'll start back up at the top!

November: kitchen
December: master bedroom
January: living room
February: family room
March: guest bedroom
April: downstairs bathroom
May: upstairs hallway

That's good for now. Lets see how far I actually get!

it's about time

Well, today I went out with my mom and aunt to look at a bunch of model homes that are for sale and just drooled all over them. I've decided that I'm gonna make an effort at decorating my house. If I could make my house look like the model homes then maybe I wouldn't feel so much like I want to look for a new place! Cuz even if I got a new place, it still wouldnt' be decorated like those houses that brought in a professional interior decorator!!

I realize I'm taking on a big task that I don't know if I can handle, but right now, I'm excited about it. I figure if I take on one room at a time, and research a bunch of ideas, set myself a monthly budget or something, maybe I can do it all myself. I would love for my whole house to be painted but we'll see :) start small, Becky, you know how you get overwhelmed and give up!

Maybe I'll even work out a plan so then when I get overwhelmed and start saying "I don't know what to do next!" then I just come back to my plan and see what I should be doing.

Baby steps... that's how I work...
