Today was very busy. It started with me continuing to work on the laundry room renovation. I started on Monday and need to be finished by Friday. The reason is we only do laundry once a week, but waiting any longer than that really does not work.

 It was also my oldest son 29th birthday today, so my wife and I took him out for lunch to one of our favourite hamburger joints. If you are ever in the area, check out Hambrgr – it is simply amazing.

Once lunch was done it was back to the renovation. I also managed to fit in a workout at my local box. Once I returned, you guessed it back to the renos. Did not need to stop for dinner as lunch was plenty to hold me over. Another two hours and finally it was time to stop.

The renovation is stressing me out a lot more than any of the other projects I did over the past few months. After some thinking about why I’m feeling this way, I realised that the time crunch on this job is what’s got me all undone. Even though my deck project earlier this summer also had a due date, the window for completion was longer and really allowed me to easily complete before the deadline.

While I cannot change the deadline for this job, I can put in some extra hours by getting up a little earlier and working a little later. This will make me more tired, but I need to knuckle down and get it done. I don’t want to cut any corners either. So for now I will do what I need to do to get the job done.
