So, how did I do with my to do list over the weekend?
  • Take Charlie to the park Colby came for a visit, so they had playtime instead – exercise is exercise!
  • Clean the living room floor and lay out the new rug
  • Skim coat the pantry wall
  • Measure the bathroom floor again for new tile
  • Look into this stuff for the tile installation
  • Finally un-box the vanities that have been sitting in the garage (while this wasn’t done, it wasn’t really essential to the weekend’s needs anyway)
  • Finish up trim work on the exterior stoop area (I finished in the evening as the sun was setting, so more than likely there are still a few touch-up spots to get to but otherwise I’ve made great progress).
  • Scrub the cement slab in prep for paint (ugh – cleaning! That’s a no. But I did get the paint for the stoop mixed.
  • Test out paint color on front door (!)
  • Spray paint the wreath form and dollar store pumpkins for some fun holiday crafts (this is as done as I could manage; my spray paint didn’t last as long as the need for it did)

Well, I knew I may not get it all done in one day, but I definitely think I made great strides to get them all finished. Sharing my to-do list last Sunday seems to have worked wonders to spur my determination and get things done. For the first time in a long time, not only did I wake up at a decent hour, but then I also got out of bed to do the things I’d said I was going to.

Whoda thunk? All I needed for motivation to drag my lazy Sunday butt out of my lazy Sunday bed was to risk embarrassing myself by not having followed through on a single thing by Monday morning. I’m going to try it again this coming weekend to see if it sticks – so expect another Sunday post like this one to get my DIY energy up.

Since all of these to-dos were skipping around the house in various places, they all need finishing before any of them can be part of a reveal. But, I’m happy to share a quick peek at something I am quite excited about.

And yes, I’m talking about Charlie’s new football toy. Kidding.

  1. I'm right there with you Sarah, my list keeps getting longer and longer. It seems that nothing is getting accomplished. Really I think I just keep adding more to my list than I finish. This weekend my main goal is to get some drywall patching and painting done. Sounds easy right!:)
