Now that that's done, I can finally get to the around-the-house to-do list, which has grown quite long. I am already able to cross one thing off the list--I temporarily organized my rehearsal corner in the craft room (see photo left). Ah, accomplishment! If we tackle one to two projects a week, I think we can actually get everything else accomplished before the end of the year. Here's the list:
- Install new toilet flapper in master bath
- Install task lighting in craft room
- Install tile backsplash in kitchen
- Paint interior walls
- Clean out closets in extra bedroom/offices
- Organize Derek's office
- Clean/organize garage
- File the mountain of paperwork
- Take clothes to Goodwill
So for the next few months, we'll be enjoying the peace and quiet of house projects. I find all of these things very relaxing. Perhaps because the ability to cross them off the to-do list is cathartic. But that's probably because it feeds the neat freak in me. And that's okay.
I'll keep you posted on our progress.
