Almost, but not Quite

Posted on

I wonder if there is a name for the condition I have.  Ninety percent-itis? Not quite done-itis?  Brain is moving on-itis?

Finishing a project is a chore for me.  I’m not sure why.  I start with enthusiasm, but before I’m completely finished, my mind is wandering to the next project.  Do I get bored?  I’m I just over it?  Do I have A.D.D.?

My hubby used to give me a hard time about leaving cleaning products out or not putting the vacuum away after cleaning the house.  (He doesn’t give me grief anymore.  My famous evil eye has made him fearful of ever mentioning it now.)  In my head I wasn’t leaving things out because I couldn’t finish something… I was leaving those things out so he would acknowledge that I actually cleaned.  It made sense at the time!  Now I wonder if it was ninety percent-itis flaring up!

I have a couple of projects started at the moment.  I’m still working on the DIY round table I posted about a week or so ago, and I’m refinishing and recovering the chair I picked up at the antique store last weekend.  But my brain is moving on to another project I have out in the garage.  I need help!

The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?  I’m good at first steps!

  2. I think my hubby has that too! It’s a good thing hubby’s aren’t quite as good at the evil eye. Because I’ve been known to literally follow him around, with a list, from one project to the next, until things are done and put away!


I love comments! It makes my day.
