I have a habit of starting and planning lots of projects, but not necessarily fully completing them. My husband lovingly refers to it as “tabbing.” You know when you open up a bag of something? I generally open the top, but leave the strip of bag dangling. He doesn’t understand why I don’t just take the extra ten seconds to tear it all the way off and throw it away. I argue that I do it because then you only have to throw away one thing at the end when the bag is empty, but I’ll admit he does have a point (and it works as a convenient metaphor for this topic )
So, in an effort to reduce the number of dangly tabs in my life, I’m focusing on finishing up projects (which includes dusting off this website). First off on the list today, the monster I’ve been working on for Kaja.
Blurry action shot!
On the accomplishing projects front, remember “the monstrosity?” Well, since I rescued it from the garage sale, it’s been living in our garage (and I’m sure causing a lot of internal sighs for my husband ).
Today that changed!
Well, not completely, the majority of it is still in the garage…but, while Kaja was napping, I took the main doors off, sanded them, cleaned them, and put gesso on the fronts, and, before I started typing this, I put gesso on the backs and set them up to dry. They will be painting ready tomorrow afternoon!
It feels nice to get some stuff done. I still have a lot of other odds and ends waiting to be completed. Hopefully I’ll keep up this momentum
Rudie is doing fantastic! Our last few morning walks, I haven’t even bothered putting her “help em up” harness on. She still wears a shoe on her left leg so that, on the occasions she drags it, it doesn’t scrape up the top of her foot, but I’m thinking it will be soon that she will be able to stop wearing that. She’s even able to navigate a stair or two at a time now!
It’s day 7 of gluten free casein free experiment. So far I haven’t noticed too many changes other than I feel more full during the day (which is a nice change from the hunger a lot of the time feeling). Interestingly, Kaja seems to have reacted really positively to it. She’s eating a lot more then she was before (which is saying a lot for her ). I may be imagining it, but she also seems to be sleeping better. We will see what week 2 brings. A fun part of this food change has been coming up with some new recipes. I will share them with you shortly.
Anywho, many exciting things on the horizon. I look forward to sharing them with you all. What projects do you have on your plate that you want to finish? Sometimes telling someone else about them is enough incentive to get them done
