I didn't just work in the yard this past weekend. From Friday morning through Sunday evening, I also painted both bathrooms, re-caulked the bathtub and the back-splash of the sink, cleaned and re-glazed the slate tile in the bath, fixed the broken towel holder in one bathroom, did some touch-up painting around the house, and de-cluttered and organized the utility closet and the desk area. Then I packed away several bins worth of stuff to make the house look a little more "neutral."And that was just in the main part of the house. In the basement, I completely cleared out the bomb shelter, did touch-up painting on the walls and then swept and painted the cement floor. Then the same thing for the room that used to hold the pool table - cleared, cleaned, swept and painted. I cleared things out from the cement area under the deck, refashioned my son's old forge into a fire pit, and then cleared and organized the tool bench and cleared a lot of things out of the basement. In all, I hauled away four loads of stuff to charity and threw out the junk. I was, if I say so myself, insanely productive. I still have a list of things I want to get done, but I feel like I'm pretty well on track. And bonus? I know that my coordinating pants and ladder set is the envy of all. Go ahead - admit it.
