So far

We’ve been in our little gem of a money pit on the busiest street in America for a little over a year now, so I think it’s time to post a list of things that we’ve done or had done to the house so that I can feel a sense of accomplishment (instead of my too-common feelingĀ of will-we-ever-get-anything-done-on-this-house-before-we-send-Molly-off-to-college). These are just things that would stay with the house if we moved, not decor-type things. Here goes (and in no particular order):

  • Driveway partially repaved
  • Fence completed
  • Sump pump installed
  • Trim painted
  • All rooms painted nicely (thanks AO), except the guest room and the sewing room
  • Blinds installed (except in a few rooms)
  • 4 garden boxes made (thanks AO)
  • AC fixed
  • One medicine cabinet added to the master bath
  • Leaky bathroom fan fixed

Hmm. What else? I honestly thought there was more. Although many of those things — ahem, sump pump — were an awful lot of money. Here are the things we still want to do (because I apparently want to overwhelm myself this afternoon):

  • Landscaping
  • Tree removal
  • Kitchen remodel
  • Paint the fireplace, retile the floor around it and install a mantel
  • Make the attic space an inviting play room
  • Redo all of the top light fixtures (they’re total ew!)
  • Expand the master bath
  • Paint the sewing and guest rooms
  • Clean out and prett-ify the porch
  • Repave rest of driveway
  • Rip out deck, put in slab and have screen porch built
  • Possibly restain the floors

Not too bad, right?
