That offer we were making a week or so ago? Well, yeah. We had a couple questions and were waiting on the listing agent to get back to our agent. She finally did, only to tell her that the seller had accepted another offer. Figures.
I’d like to say, and I will, that when the right property comes along, it will all work out. But in the meantime, I’m dealing with this collective suck of January. Dreary skies, not enough precip to matter, and cold. Okay, so it’s not as cold as a few days ago, which is fine by me—we do tend to have a frozen pipes issue when the temps dip into the single digits.
My motivation was sadly lacking this weekend, thanks to all of this. I know I need to put on my big girl panties, and I will, but for now, I’m just sulking. Or something.
Anyway, are there things you do to motivate yourself? Exercise helps me, although I take off one day a week, and planning and writing lists helps too. It’s a matter of forcing yourself to do it—at least, it works that way for me.
It’s like having kids—you clearly do not want to get them up, make breakfast, go through the hassle of getting them off to school, but you do it anyway.
So, to prep myself for moving out of this funk, I’m going to make a list of things to do when I’m in said funk, so I’ll have to get up and going—at least I won’t have to think about what to do, I can just do it:
Inventory and rotate supplies
Update supply lists
Start sorting closet contents for the sale pile in the garage
Make a list for husband (mostly projects to FINISH—yes, he read this blog)
All good winter activities, plus you can add new skills, new projects, whatever fits your taste, your talents, and your lifestyle. And your prepping calendar.
