We May Switch Project But We Getter Done!

My Dad says we hop from one project to the other without completing any. He's been tempermental and forgetful lately, so I bit my lip awhile. Then he said, "You two have never accomplished a thing hopping around like this!" I told him it adds variety to our lives and walked outside.

And yes, we have hopped around a lot this past month but at least we're doing something! Between working on the motor home, brush hogging, spreading free topsoil, stacking firewood, dismantling two decks and working on the bathroom, well, there's time left over for the laundry room/pantry addition!

For once in my life my Dad couldn't accuse me of tearing down a wall. It was Sweetie's idea!

After many revisions on how to best rearrange our bathroom - which includes the washer/dryer - Sweetie suggested we build a 4x8 foot bump out along the hall. I took one look at him and said, "You're a man after my own heart!" Dad just shook his head.

Today, as Sweetie tore the hall panelling down, we decided to extend the bump out a few more feet for more pantry shelves. I'll use them for medical/toiletry supplies.

Then Sweetie "hopped" across the hall to rerout some plumbing and install a frost proof hose attachment to the exterior. After our coffee break we moved the extra washer and dryer, all my container garden tomatoes and peppers and tore off half the back deck!

Maybe tomorrow we'll build the platform for the bump out. Maybe not. I'm spending the morning with my youngest granddaughter, so who knows what Sweetie will do. Maybe he'll go fishing. Maybe he'll sit in his recliner and nap the day away. After all, he does deserve some down time.

And now, to challenge myself, I'll attempt to figure out how I goofed up FinePix. Have a great evening everyone. Treesong

Can't wait to see pics of the new bathroom:) And your dad may be right, but so are you. It makes life interesting to have more than one project going at a time! :)

A little bit at a time still gets the job done!

Also keeps you from getting bored with doing just one thing!
