Hey everyone, I haven't been MIA because I was off the wagon, I've been working on my shed ALL day. I didn't even go to work today. I am just know finishing up with the doors. Tomorrow I have to put on the hinges and latch and hang them. My ADD kicked in and I even started painting the shed. I went through a gallon and went back to Home Depot for more goodies. That was my second trip today.
Nice to see this thread is still active. I'll be here monday begging for motivation. I'm back with more of me to appreciate. Mary
So good to see you, Mary. A lot of us are just doing our best to muddle through these days; I feel you! Looking forward to seeing you!
Work and getting sick bumped me right off the wagon a couple days this week, but neither is an excuse. The days I was good, I was excellent...ate extremely clean and nothing I ate had more than two ingredients, unless it was homemade from things that were only one ingredient. But the days I didn't care were not good. Today has been good so far. I'm alternating my time between baking bread and working on reports today; errands are done and hopefully the weekend will be low key.
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
Hi, y'all. I'll be back Monday. Wishing everyone a great weekend.

Mike - I have never had a "Blast." Sounds deliciously addictive - I better keep a safe distance from DQ! It must be "shed" season... DH and I have spent the last 3 weekends power-wahing old paint off of ours, nailing it back together, covering it in primer, then paint, and trim. Just finished the d%*@ thing this morning. No longer an eyesore which is great! Funny how maintaining such a little building drains so much cash out of the wallet at the Home Depot! I feel your pain! Good luck!
Ama, yeah the shed was more work than I expected. I not only built/paint the doors, I replaced the hinges, replaced the trim on the shed (around and above the doors). I painted most o the shed while I was at it. I have some rotten wood on the side. I'm gonna lay down some fresh wood tomorrow and do more painting.
I still have to clean my car to get that goal done too. I hope I have enough hours in the day.
Remember a while back I had a goal to clean out the shed and not get attacked by the rats? As you can see it's still clean.
My GF tells me that we need to start doing some more projects around the house. I was quietly thinking "'we' ?" Haha. I told her not to put tile on the list for a while. I'm tiled out for now. Out of all my recent projects, none were as fun as putting the bike back together.
