Here was the list that I created for myself and printed and placed in my organizer. I have added my progress and notes in italics and parenthesis.
Caroline’s Project List
-Paint back door/replace door knob (Well, I did paint the back door. But it's going to have to be replaced I do believe...still need to replace door knob too).
-Hang hooks in closet
-Paint mirrors and hang in library
-Dmitri’s collage wall
-Damon’s collage wall
-play kitchen (In Progress!! FINALLY! It will hopefully be done in time for Dmitri's 3rd birthday!)
-Update Damon’s photo book (I finished Damon's 1st Year, and I'm almost done editing it. Have I mentioned, I love Blurb!)
-Dmitri’s 1st year photobook (Cannot do until we get photos off of laptop. One day, one day...)
-Dmitri’s 2nd year photobook
-Dmitri’s 3rd year photobook
- Scrapbook (2009-2011)
-Build chicken tractor (90% done. But we didn't finish it since I got rid of the chickens. = / )
-Folks This Ain’t Normal (Read first 1/2....)
-Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (Read 90%....I should really finish it. Loved this book! Barbara Kingsolver is such a great author.)
For the second half of 2012, I would like to add in addition to the above:
-Build new dining table
-Remodel kitchen (oh please, oh please...)
-Make enough jams & butters for our family for the year and a few extra for gifts
-Have a 100% homemade Christmas!
-Finish Radical Homemakers
-Landscape the front yard to look like an English cottage garden (I might not be realistic, but at least I'm specific, right?)
-Potty train Dmitri. Or more like, hope that he potty trains himself with a little guidance.
And who knows what else I will get myself into.... Do you find yourself getting antsy about projects in the summer, or does the heat slow you down? I find myself oscillating between the two.
