What do you do when obsession is finished?
For eleven days, it consumed me. Top to bottom, this house had to be cleaned, scrubbed, redesigned, remade. I had a limited window to do it in. I had every waking minute that I was home to work with.
I had a deadline that was longer than eleven days.
I don't want to complain about finishing early. I think my efforts not only look wonderful, a truly transformative change for this living space, but the whole place seems bigger somehow...like I discovered 200 square feet that didn't exist previously in the floorplan.
But now I am consumed in the fire of "Now what?", a brutal realization that I shot my cleaning load too soon. I have accomplished this amazing task, but I have no other tasks in which to fill the space I had been given. This presents a very large problem for me.
I require a new obsession. That is the only simple solution. I'm open to suggestions.
