This weekend’s to-do list:

  1. At LEAST get the boxes unpacked that are in the dining room and front room.
  2. Buy light blue spray paint for the set of Windsor chairs that I’ve picked up here & there. (Still need 1 more for a set of 6)
  3. Paint the Windsor chairs!
  4. Hang the electric sconces in the front room over the daybed.
  5. Mount all the guitar and mandolin-hanging hardware in the front room next to the piano.
  6. Clean and organize the laundry room.
  7. Clean and organize the kitchen.
  8. Clean all 3 bathrooms.
  9. Make a checklist of loose ends from around the house to wrap up. (Like putting away the bins of Halloween stuff.)
  10. Hang the new backyard lantern.
  11. Find a cover for the grill.
  12. Winterize the backyard (empty the fountain, put away anything that holds water, pack away the cushions.)
  13. Any piles of laundry, shoes, etc….WRANGLE THEM. Old shoes to donation, laundry down the chute, get loads of wash going.
  14. Swap out Sophia’s bedding (deemed: “too little girl-like”) for something more “tween”.
  15. Get a front loader and clear out her room.

OK. That should be enough to be accountable for. Let’s see how we do!

BUT I would like to add that I also completely emptied out and cleaned the chicken coop AND took Sophia to get her hair cut (she donated a foot long ponytail to Locks of Love (I’m so proud of her, she has such a great heart).

That’s gotta count for something, right?
