New Year, New Projects

We’re only a few days into the new year, and I’m already thinking about all the projects I would like to complete around the house this year. It’s going to be tough since we have a baby due to arrive in May, but I think at least some of these things can be accomplished.

  • Strip wall paper and paint nursery for new baby
  • Hang pictures and art on walls
  • Build a workbench in the garage
  • Refinish kitchen cabinets
  • Paint living room/dining room
  • Paint kitchen
  • Organize the storage room
  • Organize the garage
  • Walkway in front yard
  • Replace light switches and outlets

If we had the money, I would really like to do these things:

  • Replace windows
  • Install AC
  • Remodel small bathroom

It’s going to be a busy year if I can accomplish half of this stuff. Who wants to help?


This is the week

This is the week that we are supposed to close on our new home.

It’s a little scary. There’s so much that needs to happen between now and the end of the week. I’m not sure how it can possibly get done.

With that said, we continue to receive assurance that everything is on track. So, I guess I should relax. It’s just hard to not be anxious about the process.
