Outstanding To-Do List

We are leaving for our vacation to visit family in about 2 and a half weeks.

(All the time I was writing this post, I'd thought it was a week and a 1/2! That's what you get for putting nebulous symbols on your calendar without explanation. I mistook the asterix for the date our library cards expire for our date of departure. Phew. However, as I was about to hit full scale panic when I hit "publish post," I think I'll just accept the extra week and not try to cram more into the "extra" time.)

So, except for a few things I really want to get done before we leave, I'll be leaving most of this list undone. But I wanted to get them down so I can toss the paper lists!

  • *Wash stairs
  • *Wash (and paint?) shoe shelf
  • Sort kids' artwork
  • Take stuff to eco-centre (done)
  • *Put up curtains over wall of shelves
  • sell Crop'n'Style
  • move clothesline
  • Sand chairs and paint
  • Cover new table for laundry tub (done)
  • Find and install taps for laundry tub.
  • *Tidy up cords at computer desk.
  • Cut and install wood facing for faux fireplace facelift. Paint.
  • Construct and paint "skirt" for trunk.
  • Remove paint from silver bits on trunk.

  • In preparation for leaving, I need to

  • *clean the house (my Mom will be staying here with the dog while we're away)
  • *figure out what to pack (which may involve a few shopping trips)
  • *plan what we'll be doing--what to see and where to go when.

  • If that isn't enough, I plan to continue with school this week.


    If I have time, I'd like to post an area a day this week--a re-cap--from the beginning to now. I also want to do up a slideshow for you (and me!) but don't count on it!

    *items have priority.

    Loud applause! Your adoring fans are happy to admire the massive amounts you have accomplished. More would be overkill.

    Nah. You can never do too much!

    (Though I may just have given that the lie....)
