Today, I was reading my blog roll and was inspired by this post from one of my favorite blogs.

Which gave me the idea to do the same. It's sometimes nice to keep a running tab on all those little (and big) projects that need done. I do have a mental list, but as someone who likes to make "To Do" lists and relishes marking things off them, this was much more fun.

But "honey do" projects scare the hell out of Jeremy, so I'm not going to show this to him... Lest he run screaming from our home never to be seen again. He obviously doesn't get the same satisfaction that I do from marking things off "To Do" lists.

Well, here it is: (sorta in order it will hopefully get done)

  • new ceiling fan in master bedroom
  • buy and put up an outbuilding
  • finish cutting up tree that fell in our backyard and fix fence
  • put the railing back up in the living room along the staircase
  • finish out flooring in doorways going down the hallway
  • weatherize around windows
  • completely redo master bathroom (new flooring, fixtures, light fixtures, you name it)
  • do something about water problem in driveway
  • tear out stone flower bed in front yard (it's falling over) and flower bed along front of house
  • paint half bath
  • replace doors on master bedroom closet with mirrored doors
  • get a closet system for master bedroom closet
  • buy a high-top table and bar stools for family room
  • find and buy rugs for living room and dining room that I like
  • replace sliding glass door in family room
  • expand flower bed in back yard
  • replace carpet in blue bedroom and master bedroom
  • replace carpet in family room with some type of wood flooring or Berber carpet
  • redo kitchen (new flooring, cabinets, countertop, light fixture, paint, possibly appliances)
  • build a breakfast bar in kitchen and open up wall into dining room
  • new furniture in office
  • new gutters/soffit
  • new siding/shutters
  • new front door
  • build a deck
  • new furniture in living room
If John and Sherry can attack their list with so much gusto, then so can I. Except, they probably have a little more DIY knowledge than I do... But I guess that's how you learn.
