On the 1st DIY of Christmas I did for my true love to see, a chiming clock next to our Christmas tree.
Over the last year or so our task list has grown exponentially. We’ve taken on new project after new project without properly finishing and marking old projects off of our list. That list is getting so big that it feels like Santa’s got nothing on us. I know this is a tired old trend for us: too many projects, too little follow through, takes a million years to get things done, blah blah blah. (Where are the storm windows, Alex? Yeah, I know, I’m working on it!) So this Christmas I’ve decided to do something about our lengthy list…other than stare at it.
Our blog post last week about fixing the grandfather clock was just the first of many little DIY tasks around the house that have been begging to be checked off of the list. More importantly, it was one of those nagging tasks that has been bugging Wendy (and me as well) and really starts to get us down when we think about how long it sat undone.
So, in honor of it being Christmas, and my never ending quest to give my spouse thoughtful holiday gifts that brighten her day and bring a smile to her face (seriously, it’s a general life goal of mine), I’ve decided to launch a lofty endeavor to accomplish 12 legitimate DIY tasks this holiday season.
