There's aren't many projects left to finally whip this house into shape, but here are a few things I've come up with:
Living room (and hallway) list:
1. put up curtains
2. figure out to do with the giant empty space between the couch and the chair
3. finish new TV stand
4. paint window trim
5. put up chandelier in hallway
6. put on new door nob
Dining room list:
1. clean out the clutter
2. touch up holes
3. Paint the windows
Craft room list:
1. paint the windows
2. oganize/hide supplies
1. spackle and paint "backsplash"
2. put up chandelier
3. Paint windows
1. paint window
2. touch up paint on light
oh and -
3. clean, clean, clean. Remind me again why I chose white everything?
The bedroom is the most ignored room in the house. I'm only in there to get dressed and sleep, so it doesn't get a lot of my attention. The list in this room could go on for days, but it'll stay short and sweet for now.
1. paint windows
2. put up curtains
Let's not even talk about the yard. The yard doesn't get a list because it would be never ending. I'm just hoping we get a freak snow storm the day of the party - just enough to cover the yard so no one can see it.
You might have noticed that every room's list has "paint windows". This is something I hope will happen, but I don't think I'll get it all finished. It's hard to motivate myself to do something that will turn the house upside down.
I'm excited for the party and also nervous. I'm skeptical that I'll make a good hostess. Thankfully, Esther, Char and Mom will be around to help with that and tell me what to do. That's what family is for, right?
