Currently in a torn up, messed up, clothes-everywhere-because-I-just-don't-know-where-everything-is-going-yet state. We have projects in every room and when those are finished, I plan to declutter the entire house. I feel like the lord of the vineyard - collecting, building, (wishing I could burn all the things), tending, watering, feeding, then pruning and glorifying. The inbetween stage is the most brutal. The one where you feel you're going to lose your mind. I wanted to (and did sometimes) run and hide from it all. But oh, the amazing feeling once it's all coming together and then you can basque in its glory and your hard work! .
We recently finished a DIY hamster cage in Kaiya's room that we will be sharing shortly. There was a point when we were waiting on some custom plexiglass for weeks and neither one of us wanted to be in that room. It was the Messy Middle. Tools and pieces of the cage everywhere. A pigsty. Looking back now that it's finished, I'm glad we got through the Messy Middle because we (and those sweet hammies 🐹) are in the sweet spot of glory now that it's all done! I should remember that for the rest of the projects. What Messy Middle are you currently in in your life?
