Yes



I am a ridiculously.super.crazy impatient person in many ways. As soon as I've decided I want something, I want it right. then. No waiting. Of course, that's not real life. Real life is where things happen in their own time which = an unhappy me.

I'm currently in unhappy mode with our house. I honestly do love our house. At least once a week. The other days I want someone to come in and magically redo both our bathrooms, our back room, our counter-tops, the music room, our front stairs, and our back yard. And then I'll gift it with my love.

We've already redone quite a lot, but it doesn't feel like enough. It's very tough to appreciate the house for what it is and what it will be when you can only do a little at time. Watching a lot of design program/reading many design blogs does not help this attitude - they certainly perpetuate the idea that in no time at all your home can be House Beautiful ready.

I keep threatening to just sell everything and move to a shack on a tropical island, but so far that hasn't happened. Yet...

I have the same disease you have - it's been diagnosed as having no patience at all! And watching HGTV where everyone is buying $400,000 houses that have granite everywhere does not help! But that dining room is gorgeous!

As a new homeowner, I totally get where you're coming from. While my house is awesome, there is so much I want to do to make it even better! It's never-ending. My suggestion, just take it one room at a time. Even if it takes a little longer that way, at least you'll see a true progression and possibly even keep your sanity.

I only rent and our home is a gorgeous old Queenslander, but still... every second week I want to move into another house. Even if it is just around the corner. x

I'm the same way! Thankfully, I don't own a home otherwise I'd be way in debt from all the remodeling and whatnot. Haha!

Stay away from design shows--they're bad news. ;)

I'm impatient in the exact same way. We've owned our house for two years, we've done A LOT of work to it, and there are still so many things I want to do. I want hardwood in the back of the house, the list goes on and on. One thing at a time, I guess.

Oh I understand your situation. I think it happens to most people too, that you feel helpless. Anyway, you can do it one at a time and cheer up!
