I haven’t done one of these in a few months…whoops! We’re halfway through September and the year is quickly coming to an end and we’ve had some unexpected expenses come up which means we most likely won’t be able to get a good bit of this done but I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made this year with the fence and the deck!
-Demo current deck
-Build new, bigger deck
-Refinish very old but new to us front door
-Install front door
-Repaint the study
-Add built ins in the study?
-Add crown moulding in the study?
-Create new area for dogs
-Remove dog crates from master bedroom
-Caulk windows – Started. All downstairs windows have been caulked. 0/4 upstairs windows have been done. This is easy so I really need to buckle down and finish this week/weekend.
-Paint master bedroom?
-Clean up side/back/front yards – In progress.
-Price out all aspects of kitchen remodel (We were able to get a ballpark number which is good enough for me for now)
From this list, here are the things I think we may still be able to get done:
Repaint the study, create new area for the dogs, remove dog crates from master bedroom, caulk windows, clean up most of the yards.
ADDED AFTER JANUARY FIRST:
-New flooring in entry/study/living room. – Mostly done! We just need to add the thresholds and then install the baseboards in the living room. – Done!
-Paint living room. – Done!
-Stain beams in living room. – Done!
-Build/stain lower deck – The deck has been built but not stained yet. It will be stained by the end of the year (hopefully no later than the end of next month)
-Read 26 books – can be re-reads or never before reads, but must come from books we already own – I’m really behind on this! I’m currently on #16 for the year but I still think I can finish.
-Go on an awesome vacation – Booked and paid for!
-Lose 20lbs – Blah. This can still happen but now it’s more like 25lbs…whoops.
-Tone and tighten once I finish losing these last 20lbs. – Three of my weekly workouts are dedicated to toning and even though my weight hasn’t gone down, I can still see better definition in my arms and legs.
-Walk the dogs more – Hoping to start doing this since the temps are starting to drop.
-Use my craft room – I’m in the process of organizing it so maybe after that?
