I have a bad habit of coming up with ideas that are completely impossible for me to achieve at the moment, while not at all being able to brainstorm a single practical solution to real life situations. Case in point:
I have been trying to arrange the kitchen in the apartment for a month and I always turn up needing a drawer I don’t have. Right now my silver ware is sitting in a plastic tray on the counter – not a practical solution at all! On the other hand, I spend at least 45 minutes two or three times a week, watching the “free” section of Craig’s list and fantasizing about turning the cast offs into beautiful “before and after” transformations. You know, because I have all this time, space and money for materials.
But my brain doesn’t stop there. Oh no. Soon I’m planning a business in which I collect abandoned furniture, restore it and sell it. I have named the business “Redeemed” and every piece of furniture would come with a “before” photograph of it at its worst. I would, of course, disclose this to anyone from whom I liberate free furniture and have them sign a waiver.
I think it’s a good idea, but how does a stay at home mom with two kids in car seats and a husband in seminary and only one car between them, drive around a city liberating furniture? And once I liberated the furniture how would I afford the materials and tools to restore it properly? See what I mean? Completely impractical. My brain is a strange place to live.
