19 weeks and much to do!

I've got so much running through my head. All the things I still need to do, all the things I haven't even thought about yet but inevitably still need to do. Now that I've woken up (I've been laying on the couch/bed half asleep after work for the last two days- so tired!) I thought it would be a good time to make a more "realistic" list of things to do. Not that my 30+ list of house projects can't all be done...but well....maybe I need to prioritize it a bit. So I'm jotting it down here in hopes I'll keep on track. Feel free to call and hassle me, I need the motivation.

  • Living Room- New entry rug, oraganize front closet and wall organizer, decorate bookshelf, paint bar and get glass cut for top, art/shelf on back wall and back corner.

  • Kitchen/Dining Room- Make curtains (found material!), go thru all the stuff on the fridge.

  • Pantry/1/2 Bath- Take everything off pantry shelves and organize, set up area to put shoes and bags when we come home, print pictures for frames in bathroom, yellow rug for bathroom, touch up yellow paint, find silver trash can and magazine holder
