Friday Five – Unfinished Things

Cross-stitchOver at RevGals it’s Friday Five time and it’s all about unfinished things. Starting is fun, energizing and exciting! The end in sight or a deadline can be compelling. The slogging in the middle? Meh.

So, five unfinished things:

  1. This piece of cross-stitch; I started it over 5 years ago and it takes me approximately a month to complete each section. The soonest I could finish it would be in slightly under a year. At the rate I am going, it will become part of my estate.
  2. We have about 5 or 6 boxes still stacked downstairs from when we moved into our house almost 5 years ago. Part of me says just throw them away unopened.
  3. The closet in my home study needs a serious mucking out… last week as I was tidying up my study, (after the post art show, post Lent/Easter madness, post leaving on vacation right after Easter), I literally threw a couple of things into it and slammed the door.
  4. Filing my tax return. It is unfinished in the manner that it hasn’t been started! Although (almost) everything is stacked in a basket waiting for me to sort out.
  5. The response to a denominational document that I promised over a month ago.

  1. Ditto on cross-stitch projects although it has been since seminary that I tackled one. Double ditto on boxes…I went through all my seminary papers etc 5 years ago and it is down to box filing type box. I went through it yesterday and didn’t cull one thing. Maybe in another 5 years.

    • Part of our challenge was that when my husband and I got married, we both came with a household full of stuff. Despite giving away/selling/culling we still have some stuff that we haven’t dealt with.
