I get distracted really easily. I might be in the middle of cooking dinner one moment, but dusting the room the next just because I catch an unclean surface out of the corner of my eye. And yes, I do burn food more often than I cook it correctly.
To get myself out of the habit, I made a resolution to "finish the projects that I start" in 2011. This meant that I had to go back and patch/ paint the drywall that my cheapo blue tape pulled off while I taped out the mirror's size (reason #233 why I'm sticking with Frog Tape).
When I veer away from the to-do list (which I had already completed in this case) and start a project out of the blue, I like to call it an "unplanned accomplishment." It's not necessarily a bad thing, it would have probably made the to-do list at some point, but it's just something that I hadn't fully planned on doing. That's what I tell Nate when he comes home and finds things like the bathroom repainted:
I liked the stencils and they were fun to have for the past two years, but Nate always hated them so I figured that I'd go ahead and take care of the project while I had my paintbrushes out.
I think that the new paint color (Olympic's Plantation Moss- left over from guest bedroom) gives off a sophisticated vibe which is okay because it's at least a little balanced by my feather shower curtain:
I was on such a roll that I went ahead and started taking out the stripes in the half bathroom.... which I later found out Nate actually liked. *sigh*
This is maybe why I should think projects through a bit more before I start them.
Anyone else have a habit of starting projects out of nowhere?
