The Incompleter

If I was a "New Character" on Conan I'd be "The Incompleter". I am terrible at finishing things I start. I always have a million ideas and never enough follow-through. I stopped by Lowe's yesterday after work, as I said I would. I picked up a couple packets of moonflower seeds, two basil plants, a cilantro, a small tomato, a strawberry, a dwarf pepper, and a squash plant. I also got some soil to mix with my regular soil and compost, and two planters which I've already decided I'm going to return. I'm going to go to Handley Feed Store on Saturday to find bigger ones. Anyway, I don't even have anything planted yet, and today my mind has already moved on to trying to figure out what I'd like to do with our bedroom. We never got around to painting it, since several straight weeks of painting had completely put me off doing any more when it came time to do the master and spare bedrooms. There's nothing wrong with our bedroom. It just isn't finished. The furniture is all taken care of. I'm fond of our bedding although it could use some finishing touches. I finally found bedside lamps awhile back that I liked and would work alright with our space. I dislike the wall color, although it's just a beige, so not technically offensive. We have nothing hanging on the walls. And there's the fact that I insist on watching television in the bedroom, which means I need my big black satellite/DVR and dvd player too, naturally. Hmm, I wonder how long I'll be pondering this one before I've moved on to my next purely-in-my-head project?

P.S. Don't worry, I'm totally gonna get those veggies and herbs planted. They may not live long while I'm off staring at paint samples and pillow shams, but at least I'll have half-finished the job. Which is a lot more than I can say for most things I take on, ha.
