Projects...

Well, now that I have a new old house (new to me, but build before I was born) I have a million projects. I don't even know where to get started, but when I walk around the yard or the house I just think of what I can and need to do. Is this normal?? I guess that's part of the difference of the mentality of renting versus owning. I could careless about my apartment, but now I'm obcessed.
 
I found a website for people like me how want to do it all, but don't have a clue. Its called http://www.doityourself.com/. The nice thing is that they give you tons of articles about how to do things on your own. So, I'm probably going to be going to this webpage a lot in the years to come (that and homedepot).

Congrats on the house! I didn't care about any of our apartments either, but when you own something and are responsible for it- everything changes!

Not that I'm good at these projects, or even have any idea how to tackle them (we still have a couple unfinished rooms).

Dave has dragged me to Home Depot so many times since we bought our house. I am actually starting to like it! And, he always has a project in mind, something that he wants to do to the yard or the house (mostly the yard.)

We've been in the same home for almost nine years and I STILL look at a room and think, "What could I do to like this better?" If it's not paint, it's new molding, or fixtures and hardware- it will ALWAYS be a work in progress but it will become a house you will have put all your blood, sweat and tears into! I'll cry the day we move from the home I've worked so hard on.
