I feel stuck. I have to survive tomorrow and then I have to find some motivation over the weekend to get my house organized and cleaned up. The clutter is getting to me and is depressing. I have a list of "honey do" stuff. My husband has been in a funk himself and dragging me with him. The puppy makes me laugh and makes me happy. I really need to start getting things done around here and working on my "to do" list and also need to lose some weight. I think it is a catch 22- need to motivate myself to clean, organize, fix things, lose weight, etc. But If I get that done, I will feel better too and be more motivated. We had had a leak in the roof (bad) and they had to rip holes in the ceiling to get everything to dry. The kitchen/breakfast room goes to 18 ft ceiling on one side to 8 ft ceiling on the other. It took my husband 2 months to paint the kitchen/breakfast room/family room with scaffolding all over. Now all of that drywall in the ceiling has to be ripped out, replaced and repainted. So I feel like we are not working together. I really want a dumpster in the driveway and I want to declutter and get rid of the excess. That is where the depression comes in. I can't clean around the clutter. I want to finish the basement (currently unfinished, the plan is to put an office, play room and rec room down there.) Paul started it. Framed out 2 walls. Again, can't work around the mounds of "stuff." He is a collector a holic and refuses to throw anything away and goes to auctions and collects more "stuff." I just don't know how to get him on the same page.
