New Year's resolutions on the house

For those of you who don’t read my other blog, my “word of the year” this year is “Focus”. One of the things I want to focus on is fixing the things we have. So, I got the great idea to make a list here and see how many we accomplish:

  • Fix the plumbing in both bathrooms
  • Fix the Washer
  • Fix the basement stairs
  • Replace light bulbs and inspect some freaky wiring around the house.
  • Fix some windows (screens and broken parts)
  • Replace lights on outside of garage with something mid-century (outdoor lighting suggestions folks?)
  • Fix back door lock so the kids can use it! 🙂
  • Re-upholster the couch and chair in living room

Ok, that’s a “starter list” – I’m sure I can think of more but it at least gives me something to work from! 🙂
