I sanded my cupboards and painted them today. tomorrow is touch up day and peeling up our horrible stick on floor

And my Dh is bringing home a floor from work for us to lay together. to say Iím thrilled is an understatement.

Iím feeling like Iím going in to fall fresh. we start school next week and I actually feel close to ready

I didnít get to reorganize my bathroom cupboards. But id like to it may have to wait or maybe Dh will notice and do it. I often come home to cleaned out cupboards. But the floor will take everything out of him and Iíve asked him not to do anything else this week so he doesnít end up in severe pain . Iím hoping he listens but heís a big boy and will just pay the price if he doesnít

I may put it on his list. we keep lists for each other now. Things we both prefer to Do it one of us does better <ó- thatís a new thing for us

Bathroom Floor is done . Dh basically did it while I sat and kept saying ďuh Iím not helpingĒ

I'm not sure that I ever came back to say that I cleaned one more room, top to bottom. It's the small front entry...but still something.

So today is a holiday, and I need to clean out the garage. It's sunny so I can pull everything outside. I try to hose down the garage when I can get everything out, and it will need to be dry by Wednesday so it can be repainted. Our house is now 18 years old so the doors and trim need a new coating. It was arranged for the middle of the month, but the painter called me two days ago to ask if she can come Wednesday. I'm procrastinating so far, but this is my last free day to get it done.

Thanks Charla. I am just about to load recycling to deliver to the depot. I hope it all fits in one load. There is a lot!

I only got half the garage done (referring to my previous post in this thead). I just finished listing about half a dozen items on a local bidding site. All of those things are taking space in the garage and need to be gone!

It is a huge job.

I washed the front exterior of my house today, and swapped out dying summer plants with fall mums in the front planters.

I never got back here but Iím still Tweaking my bathroom. The toilet took hours and hours and Dh hurt his back a bit (not horrible but w his spine issues he took a month to recover). So heís back to hanging my freshly painted cabinet doors. I need to touch them up because they got chipped during hanging . Iím also slowly redecorating


Bathroom
1 touch up Cabinet doors and cabinets (today)
2 replace towel rings (asked for Christmas)- once this happens I want to touch up the walls since I will have to shackle where the old rings are!
3 new bathroom towels
4 decorate - id like one bible verse but I havenít found the right one

Living room and kitchen
1 paint kitchen crown molding
2 touch up walls
3 hang kitchen decor
4 hang pics of kids in family room
5 kitchen more?
6 living room more?

Next up is upstairs bathroom
1 fix holes in wall from when Dh collapsed and tore t.p. Holder off
2 paint and touch up w old paint
3 new shower curtain
4 new other decor?

Iím hoping to do our room soon but it means all new paint I think!!
1 paint
2 decor?

Projects Iíve done recently
Clean and condition all leather funiture
Clean out Tupperware area (already a mess again)




Finally
1 touch up paint dd2ís room
2 touch up paint dsí room

Thanks charla


Iím moving at a snails pace and hope the bathroom and kitchen are done by Christmas

Thatís the entire school year of projects and if I move too slowly I will have to do it next summer

School and work take priority. But Iím recognizing elbow grease and paint go a long long long way even if we cannot replace things.

Oh and Dh wants to bring home a carpet cleaner from work. But thatís him not me so Iím not writing it down
