Today's post is again about procrastination, however this time it's not about me! Is it just me or are there others out there among you that have a significant other who is a starter not a finisher? No, no, not in a sexual way, (I knew you were thinking that, lol) in a handyman way! I have to say, I probably have the most unfinished home around. Don't get me wrong this man is so talented, he can build anything, fix anything and does wonderful work—he just doesn't finish a damn thing! We have at this moment, at least ten unfinished projects. The excuse is usually money, it certainly can't be time, because he has been unemployed for quite a while now! The picture below will show you the outside of our house which has been HALF sided for three years now! We have the rest of the siding to do it, we have the scaffolding rented—the last time we went to the rental place was to rent a nailer to install the kitchen floor, the guy looked at us and said "you're the ones that rented the scaffolding two years ago, that's your paperwork over there hanging on the wall. Are you doing it soon? Cause we were gonna start a pool to see who picks the right date! See even strangers know my dilemma!
He starts off really well, full of enthusiasm and motivation, gets just about finished and comes to a screeching halt. For instance, we remodeled my office. Painted, made new curtains, pictures—the works. He even constructed a built-in window seat with cabinets on each side, it's beautiful! He put up all new ceiling trim around the entire room, and was one piece short. Oh, you didn't think I was actually gonna get a finished room did you? We have since purchased that missing piece of trim, painted it and it is cut to size, do you think it has gotten installed? Ha, ha! Let's see, I think my office was also started three years ago! I love this man with all my heart. I just wish I knew how to light a fire under his ass! We've talked about the possibility of him starting a handyman business. Of course, me being the smart ass that I am, responded with, "what are you gonna call it Unfinished Business"? I've tried to motivate him with the promise of sexual favors, but apparently I don't have the same amount of persuasion that I used to! So, if you have any tips on how to get things finished around here, please feel free to share!
