Lest anyone think we have it all together at this old house (though I could scour the earth and not find a single person who thinks that I suppose), here is a list of our unfinished household projects:
A sinkful of dirty dishes–I list this only because it is the case most every day!
Scrapbooking–I am stuck on my daughter’s second birthday, my son is about 8 months, and in my own scrapbook, I’m not even four years old yet!
New windows–We replaced the glass in our three bay windows but have yet to do the other 10 leaky windows.
Refinish the wood floors–When we moved in, we refinished the office with the plan to do the rest of the first floor, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Several projects we haven’t tackled badly need to be done but we are waiting for the right time (that is, money!). Number one: Gut and remodel the kitchen. [Okay, there are so many things wrong with this one picture taken from my kitchen. The cabinets are clearly falling apart, the garbage can is sitting out, the counter is just plain ugly and you can see the layers of linoleum that were ripped from the floor]. Plus, someday we need to rebuild the front and side porches, actually do some landscaping, and partially finishing (or just cleaning and painting) the basement for better storage. Oh, and an addition so our kids can have their own rooms, but …
