My shop is not finished on the inside either. I was hoping that maybe I can use some of the siding I am taking off my house and use that inside the shop. Its log siding so I can use it for the walls or ceiling...we'll see??

Someone pointed it out right away...almost shocked that it did not have a cover on it.
I found the best way for me anyway to combat procrastination is to write a list. I write down what I want to do, how long I think it will take me time wise and the cost. Its just a simple 3 column list. As the weekend progresses I work the three columns to my advantage. Do I have enough time to knock out some quick tasks? Do I have the money or supplies to do another task, or of course what is my top priority. I also find myself racing myself to see if I can get them done in the time frame I estimated. (I know, I'm strange)
One other thing I do that is rather strange is if I do something that is NOT on my list, I write it down and cross it off. Its weird but I guess gives me the satisfaction of seeing that I did something. My mother admitted she does this too. I guess being strange runs in the family.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
