I know that fantasy vs. reality issue well and can completely relate.
I had a romantic notion of buying a fixer-upper that somehow obscured all the actual hard work it would take in a dreamy mist. In my imagination the whole process was mainly a couple weekends of wearing cute overalls while rolling on paint (no prep work needed!). Seven years later, my view of fixing up a house is decidedly different, and I practically fall into an exhausted heap just thinking about it.
My romantic notion of gardening ended even more quickly when, on day one, I ran into a snake.
