Project ADD

I don’t know what my problem is. Here I sit in my messy living room with project after project scattered about my house. I’ve started a dozen crafts and left them half done. I’ve started sorting through closets and drawers and left them half done. I’ve half cleaned my kitchen. Half folded my laundry. The list just keeps going.

I’m afraid I am suffering from project ADD.

It happens a lot when my husband goes out of town like he did earlier this week. I think about all the time I’ll have in the evenings to do things when the kids are in bed and he’s not around.

I plan and plan and then get super tired and depressed when I stay up way too late because my kids don’t go to bed on time, there’s mess all over to be cleaned up and I don’t get to my projects until well after 10:30 p.m.

It’s exhausting.

So here I sit wanting to get some crafts and decorations done but I’m too tired.

Why do I do this to myself?

Maybe it’s because I went to a fall boutique last week and LOVED everything I saw. All the cute witch hats and owl hangers inspired me to get my craft kits out and work on a few things myself.

Add a 20 percent-off-your-entire-purchase at Joann’s coupon to the inspiration from the boutique and I’m in serious trouble. There are just way too many cute Halloween things to be made. Oh, and my baby girl turns 2 next week. I’ve got Minnie Mouse decorations to get done.

So my kitchen table looks like this:

My countertop like this:

These sytrofoam wannabe Minnie Mouse ears are chilling in my bedroom right now:

Here’s the banner that I am working on that has letters falling off:

And that is just a few of the things going on right now.

I’m not proud of all of this but it is what it is. Thank heavens my husband tolerates my crafty outbursts.

Hopefully I’ll calm the heck down soon and get some of these projects done.

For now I’m going to sign off and tend to my ADD. Maybe I’ll cut out my daughter’s Minnie Mouse costume I need to sew. Maybe I’ll finish the sign I’m painting for my porch. Then again, maybe I’ll start something new completely. Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets like this.
