Why do we let home improvement projects wait so long?
Maybe you all don't do this, but I am a procrastinator by trade and I am very good at it.
I have lived with an unsightly crack on our stairway wall for 4 and a half years.
I patched it and then there was a big white blob on the brown/taupe/olive wall.
Today, I chipped a piece of the wall off, took it to a home stuff store, matched the paint and fixed the wall, paint included, in about 2 hours.
Surely, I had that two hours earlier in my tenure here at the house.
So now, the wall is still that ugly brown/taupe/olive color, but at least it all is the same.
I also have been climbing my stairs for that whole time and thinking, when will someone pull out these carpet staples that I see everywhere.
The previous homeowners pulled up the carpet on the stairs, for which I am grateful as they had 4 cats, but left in the staples everywhere.
Well, I spent the last 50 minutes pulling all of those out and in spite of a bruised thumb I am very happy.
So there it is, I could have spent 3 hours fixing this stuff 4 years ago, but instead I lived with the ugliness.
Now that is done, here is a picture from Germany, as I have mislaid the camera again.
This is a forest in Neuss, Germany.
