If so, do you have a deadline of when it needs to be done?? Has it turned out to be much more than you thought it was going to be?? We started to work on our bedroom back on Memorial weekend... and I have to say that it is such an improvement, but we kind of hit a point where the money cant be put into it anymore for now so we had to put it on hold... not a problem, it is just our room and when we get done -then it gets done... no one else will see or have to deal with it... our back yard we are kind of redoing as in, replanting some of the plants, making it more of a nice area for our kids to play, weeding it out and trying to get the grass in really nice shape... it has lots of weeds as well.... but it is coming together, although we are almost at the point where we need a little money to buy a few things for it now..... we really dont have a deadline, however I want to have a BBQ with my family to show off what we have done at the end of the summer... so I really want to get more of that done. how about you... have you started something that you want done by a certain time??

There are lots of pending things to be done as well in our place and aside from that things to be done as well giving time limit to it would only stress us all but it's never that bad to set a target date when it should be done... oh the pressure

oh the pressure is right!! LOL, when you live in a house that you are working on it never really has a deadline but there is a limit of time that you wish it to get done in.... however it usually doesnt work out that way. like I want to do so much more to my backyard but money and the weather hasnt been on my side...so I keep having to push off what I want to do out there. thanks for the response and have a great day!

I have several small projects that I have started... and I am hoping to be done with them by the end of summer, and then I have the 2 big projects that we started (the bedroom and back yard) I am really hoping to have done by the end of summer... good luck with your projects and hey, not having a deadline for them, makes it easier and less stress on you!! thanks for the response and happy mylotting.

I am trying to declutter, I am trying to be very drastic in getting rid of some things in my house, it is amazing how having less in the house can make it look so much better. Plus I am trying to get my garden in ordersince I had my computer i have let that go but now i am trying to have it look neat and tidy.

I know exactly what you mean by declutter!! I have been trying to do that since the beginning of the year!! I am making progress, but I am not done yet... I figure I am trying to organize and declutter at the same time...so this is a long process!! thanks for the response and have a great night!
