Honey Do’s Out of Control?
Does your home repair to-do list seem to be taking over your life? Jeff Wilson, host of Buildipedia’s At Home channel, sympathizes and offers sage advice for how to tame that ever-present “Honey-Do” list.
Every aspiring handyman (or handywoman) has a List. Not the list you make when you head out to the home improvement store for materials, or even the short list of things you need to accomplish this weekend. I’m talking about THE List.
This is the “Honey-Do” List. It might be compiled by your significant other or it might exist only in a foggy corner of your brain, but every homeowner and do-it-yourselfer has one. It’s a master list consisting of all of those loose toiletpaper holders, paint touch-ups, furnace filter changes, and such philosophical entries as a simple, scrawled “Sump pump?” This is the list that defines us would-be handy-folk – it’s at once our Manifesto of “do-it-yourself-ness” and the Sisyphean burden we push ever forward. It often grows; it never shrinks.
Regardless of your relationship with “The List,” you’ve got to learn to live with it. Otherwise, it can keep you up at night or spoil a good backyard barbeque. It’s like a very active pet – it needs to be fed and sheltered, but every once in awhile it will require some discipline to keep it from taking over your life.
