You are ambitious! I WILL finish painting the house and find someone to finish second story, trim, and eaves. I hope to find two new sofas for the living room. I'll be a happy camper if those things happen! They will, they will!

1. Remodel our master bathroom. We've already got the fixtures we like picked out.

2. Get our second home sold off! We have a closing coming up, so it will be nice to be rid of that mortgage.

3. Get fitter than I am right now. I've been working on it! Walking every day. Trimming down and firming up are nice side effects!

1.Find a new carpenter/cabinetry maker to remodel our fire place and build a cabinet. Our previous guy who had done all our remodeling did the demolition and decided he didn't want to do the job after all.

2. Make dresses for my two DGDs as a Christmas present.

3. Start thinking of the dishes I want to bring to a Thanksgiving potluck dinner.
