Hi. My husband and I bought our 2 acre lifestyle block 10 years ago and even now our home is still a wee way off completion. I guess that's what happens when kids start arriving on the scene! 
For years I have been keen on having some chooks, and now I have 8 beauties! Last summer I also started my first major vege garden and had an absolute ball with it. Needless to say I am now hooked (Maybe that's the reason the house isn't finished as hubby is always having to full my requests of building chook houses, vege trellis and compost bins, much to his frustration!)
Yes, at times the grass overwhelms us, and the jobs pile up but we wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
I think we all know what it's like to have life (and lsb projects ) get in the way of a good 'to do' list [}] You'll get there eventually and have a lot of fun on the way....that's what I tell myself
