Making Lists & A Link Up Party!

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Today, I am going to make myself some weekend promises. After I read Lauren's post I also realized how little motivation I have had and how I have not done much with the house. We've been here well over a month, and boxes are still piled up. I am almost embarrassed by it all. Then, I saw Sarah's list that she posted yesterday, and was so inspired to get things done. When he starts up medical school again at the end of August, it will be just me cleaning, doing yard work, and organizing the house on most weekends. I think it's really smart of me to take advantage of him while I can. Although, he doesn't know this yet...but he will soon! Maybe when I print this list he'll catch my motivation energy and willingly help. One can only hope! 

things to accomplish (before September): 
+ Un pack ALL boxes 
+ Set up Joel's office 
+ Paint the China Hutch 
+ Get gallery wall photos/prints printed 
+ Work on the front yard 
+ Spray paint our mailbox 
+ Get one room done each weekend 
+ Accomplish above and take photos for Home Tour posts! 
+ Go garage sale hopping, and find more vintage frames 
+ Find fabric for our couch pillows 
+ Organize the pantry 
+ Get our single chair re-upholstered (that's a stretch)
+ Put mirror up in master bedroom 
+ Hang netting on our bed 
+ Find and buy a dryer... this is a funny/sad story really. 

Okay, that is 15 small and big things to before Labor day weekend. Realistically I think most of it can be done. We hopefully will have time/energy to do it. Wish us luck...AHH

  6. This is quite the list. I'll be impressed if you can tackle them all. I think I need to make a similar list. I have been totally slacking this summer on household chores. I blame the ridiculous heat.

  12. Your to do list looks a lot like mine should! I really need to make one. We have lived in our new house for almost a month too and we still have several boxes around the house. It IS embarrassing.... uuuggghhh. Haha! Our problem is that we need more furniture so that we can unpack the remaining boxes.
