Done and Done

I love it when things get checked off my to do list.

We've had this list on our refrigerator for about a year. It covers pretty much everything in our old house that we want to do. We finally had a reason to really get to work and get everything done.

In the past two months, we have "finished" our 80 year old house.

Paint the exterior - check
Finally finish the little things in the kitchen - check
Finally finish the little things in our laundry room - check
Fix that stupid door knob that I have a scar on my hand from - check
Strip the 80 years of paint and stain off two doors - check
Paint said doors - check
Replace the light switches and outlets with approx. 60 years of paint on them - check
Scrape off the popcorn ceiling in the bathroom (dumb sub contractor) - check
Paint bathroom ceiling - check
Mulch - check

Now... lets just wait for that water heater to die... and we'll have another project!

Things

You know you have way too many "things" going on when someone asks you "hows that thing going?" and you have to ask them to clarify.

I am ready for things to wrap up so that I can not be confused about which thing people are talking about.

Goals

If I say them outloud, I have to do them... right?

In the next 6 months:
- complete the 30 Day Shred
- Run a 5K
- Do a trash the dress session in my wedding dress (this has to be done after completing the 30 Day Shred...because I can't fit otherwise!)
- Finish the kitchen (yeah, still little projects to do)
- Paint the ceiling in the laundry room

In the next year:
- Visit Charleston
- Visit my Oma in Florida
- Run a 10K
- Have a sketch of our house done and framed
- Have my wedding dress preserved... yep, married for almost 2 years and still hanging in my closet dirty

As Heard

Me to Pregnant friend: Are you doing a birthing class?

PG friend: No

Me: I thought they were mandatory

PG friend: Nope. Besides, I have seen enough 16 & Pregnant to know what to do and what not to.

I'm just glad we can use MTV as a stepping stone these days.

My favorite word

... is Nozzle.

Followed closely by "guzzle."

I love a double z word.

Seriously, say nozzle guzzle outloud. Yeah, thats what I thought.

Whats your favorite word.

Monday, Monday Ba-dah, ba-da-da-da

I was going to write a thought provoking post on anxiety. No really, I was. But then I looked at my feet while I was on the phone with a customer, and I decided I should wait for a day that I am thinking a little more clearly. See?
