Wanted- Motivation. Apply Within!

I am lacking motivation these days.
 Especially in the unpacking/decorating department. Right now the house is functional but not pleasant to look at.
Exhibit A:

There are so many things wrong with this picture I don't even know where to start. 
First off, do you see the placement of the couch? We can't even decided how we want to arrange the furniture. We have moved everything a couple of times and really don't like any of it. 
We hate this one but don't even have the motivation to move the couch back to the position that we hate the least.
Secondly, do you see all of the boxes stacked in the stairwell? I'm pretty sure most of them are almost empty, yet they still sit there.
Third, look at the bare walls. Not a single picture is up yet. 

Exhibit B:

Again, no curtains or any sort of wall hanging. No that would take way to much work, and I just don't have the energy. While we are here allow me to point out the beautiful flowers my husband bought me the other day for no reason. LOVE HIM!!! 
We finally got blinds hung in all the windows last week. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who is stoked about that. My neighbors have probably seen enough of this family for a life time. You never realize how often you walk around your house half naked until you don't have any blinds.

Oh I have plenty of other things that need to be done around here that I don't have pictures of.
The TV has yet to be mounted on the wall. So we are watching it while it sits on the floor. 
If this tells you how completely unmotivated I have been My Tivo is not hooked up yet. We do have a DVR on our cable box so it has been filling in the gaps, but you can't even compare the two of them. Tivo is far superior to a DVR. 

Why am I not getting all of this stuff done? I'm temped to just put all of the boxes that have not been unpacked yet in the attic and forget about them until we move again. Less clutter, right? Of course I won't do that, I am sure I need some of the stuff in those boxes, I just don't feel like unpacking it. Any volunteers?

Oh man, I have no suggestions for you. I normally like to get all my decorating done within 2 weeks (although I almost never hang curtains) of moving in. This most recent move we just stored all of our unpacked but needed crap in our home office. I just unpacked it a few weeks ago (over a year after we moved in). All I can say is that I can't wait to see what you do with the place! :)

I feel your pain! We got our shipment last week, and I was super motivated to do the kitchen and living room because some friends visited this week, but now we have to organize all our clothes and we have a closet full of the "random" stuff. A bookshelf and a desk (which we don't have) will help, but really we just need to buckle down and get things organized! I know it will feel better when it's done... but I wish it could just get done automatically!

The worst parts about moving is the packing and unpacking. Just take it one day at a time. I've lived in my house for 5yrs and I still can't get my living room furniture how I like it. I get tired of it one way and move it another way. Our poor dog is confused. lol. you'll get there eventually. :)

LOVE your couch! It's beautiful! I would so be over there helping if I lived close. I am one of those strange people who enjoys unpacking - packing is a different story but I LOOOOVE to unpack, organize and feel like things are where they belong.

Uhhh, if you find any motivation, pass some along this way. I am seriously lacking right now. And yay for flowers for no reason! Way to go hubby!

Sarah said...

Ugh, I totally feel you on that. I still have a few boxes that need to be gone through. And tons of boxes that need to be taken away. Laundry that needs doing, floors that need sweeping, and a bathroom that needs sterilizing. ZERO motivation.

I hope you find your motivation. Moving sucks. I still haven't found all of mine and we moved in 3.5 years ago!

I totallt know the feeling. I got unpacked a LOT when we moved in February, and then just hit a wall...and never did all the little stuff I wanted to. It' so hard! Good luck! Happy ICLW. #78

I think it's the crazy heat outside. Once I go outside to run errands, I get completely unmotivated!

Erin said...

Hold the presses!! Your TiVo is still unhooked?!?!!?! Who are you? There must be a serious motivation crisis if that was not the first thing that was done!

Sierra said...

Wait a minute Allison, did you say your TIVO isn't hooked up yet??!???!?!?!?! ALLISON MARTINEZ'S TIVO ISN'T HOOKED UP!!! Hmmmm, this is more than lacking motivation!!!! Call in the troops with a bottle of wine (or two or three) and get to hooking up the Tivo since I don't think I can handle you not having Tivo then get to the rest of unpacking. XOXO
