The itch has overcome my insufficiencies-- lack of time, lack of inspiration, lack of funding, lack of ambition, lack of gumption-- What ever was missing before.
This itch comes to me often in the Autumn-- the itch to fix my space. It’s a lot like urge to do Spring cleaning but-- ummm --- not in the Spring.
I love my house, don’t get me wrong. It just has some issues. Or maybe it’s me that has the issues.
That’s not something I lack, issues. As I told some of my friends the other day, lately even my issues have issues.
But back to my house.
This is supposed to be a haven; a place that makes me happy. And lately there are some things about our living space that are making me, well... not happy.
So using the tools I’ve got, limited resources and driven by this incredible itch, I’m going to try to fix the issues that are bothering me; robbing my joy.
And since I know that you love reading about every little intricacy and detail of my oh-so-mahveloooous life...
Oops, there goes the sarcasm.
You are invited along for the ride.
My plan with the Coop REdux project is to:
[A] Establish REasonable and REalistic habits for keeping the messy spaces cleaner.
[B] REorganize certain problem areas that attract clutter like a pregnant woman attracts parenting advice.
[C] REarrange or Redecorate areas that don’t make me happy.
[D] REsolve or REsist character flaws (darn issues!) that prevent me from being successful as CHIEF HOMEMAKER of this coop.
The main objective is to do all that while:
[A] REmaining partly sane.
[B] REpurposing or REdesigning things I already have.
[C] Finding any items for purchase REally, REally cheap.
[D] Letting you REad all about it.
Heaven help me.
