I had such high expectations for this weekend. I was thinking that by the end of today we would have laid all of our mulch.
In hindsight, my goals were a little lofty. Will I never learn that projects always take much longer than we think they will? Even when expectations are reasonable - which mine were not!
|5 cubic yards of mulch doesn't look like a lot,|
until you start hauling wheelbarrows full!
Looking exactly like it did when it was dumped there on Friday.
Fortunately, the prep work turned out to be the hard part, and over the next three hours we got quite a bit done. The pile is smaller. We have made progress. Not even close to finished, as I had dreamed we would be - but getting there. Good thing tomorrow is another day.
Do your projects
take longer than you expect them?
I should rephrase that.
Have you ever finished a project as quickly as you expected to?
