summer to do list.

tail end of dreary winter + rain and gloom of early spring = 1 depressed katrina.

This is the the toughest part of the year for me.  The skies are constantly grey.  It's still cold out.  Then it's raining. Then it's snowing.  The ground gets mushy and muddy.  The kids are desperate to get outside and I'm desperate for them to get out from under foot.

That's when the home improvement projects start percolating in the back of my head.

  • The upstairs needs to be completely repainted!
  • I should install that light fixture I bought 3 years ago
  • The tap in the main bathroom needs to be replaced
  • New smoke detectors throughout the house?!
  • This laundry room is a disaster
  • Ooo.... look at this bedding at west elm...
  • I should sew new curtains for the bedroom to match that bedding (that I don't actually have) - something cream coloured with blackout fabric on the back
  • and the back deck needs to be stained - or maybe I'll just rip it out and build a new one?

I wonder if I'm the only person who has a summer to do list that is just a little to long to actually cross everything off it?  I think half of the items on this year's list were on last year's list as well.
