To Do List, Long-Term Goals

Most of my list had become these long-running goals. Seems like it clutters up the reality, that is, that I need to do x, y, an z this week, so I’ve broken it into two lists!

to do list 1

Living Room, Hall, Entry: caulk & trim paint, and/or touch up, as needed.

Living Room: Coffee table that is there is too big. See if one of the tables in the attic will work as a replacement. Table removed from attic (3/1).

Black & white rug: Finish up fabric strips. Scheduled for the spring/summer, most of this!] Long Term: Trim against kitchen wall, window trim, stair rail. Replace interior trim on double window. Mod baseboards. Caulk/paint floor/baseboards. Move kitchen door? Replacement ladders for blinds.

Stairs: Get them stripped, painted and install the new runners. New runners are being returned.

Hall: Replace smoke detector and add corner detail on doors (future). Sell the records, replace the cubes with the black table. Move the dresser into office 1.

Kitchen: Make new plan without the Hoosiers and dismantle too-large counter? Install shelves where window used to be. Sell Hoosiers. (First one up for sale 12/10) Finish new window/shelf. Final paint on sidelight, new shelf. Find new homes for pieces stored in the crates  — sell/donate or discard.

Dining: Remove crib rail? Candlebra? Paint drawer units? Paint china cabinet.

Sunroom: Finish putting wallboard on the kitchen wall.

Laundry: Renew paint. Long term: finish trim, Get switch thing set up. Storage bins.

Attic: Get bookcases upstairs and bays built.

Office 1: Clear/clean counter. Remove everything from bookcases; move them.  Get sewing machine legs detached from base. Recycle, reuse, or dump. Put dresser in office. Stack on top of it (same size, and small) 2nd dresser, currently in the storage. Red rug?

Pantry: Add trim and final paint.

Cull/Clean (general): Take stuff for sale to antique store or to storage so that it isn’t cluttering up the living room!

Bathroom: Clean corners, window. Caulk as needed. Repaint room. Match trim to the rest of the house. If new gallon is enamel paint and not the flat, paint bathroom? Replace floor and sink and required wall upgrade.

Bedroom: (Cull/Clean) Get tapestry on stretchers. Quilt rehab. New: Start making pattern to reupholster chair. Blue plaid project.

Attic:  Move the bookcases. Build bays.

Storage: Move to smaller unit. Will be completed 5/16/17. Get the 2nd dresser home and bookcase donated/sold.  5/15/17

Sunroom: Get the windows done. SR door panel 27.5 x 64,

Get the online and computer files cleaned out. (Drafts here = 40 11/30 43 10/11, “Tally” page information (tab, this blog) moved to history 9/17.) Unsubscribed from 1 mailing list 2/17.

Writing: Memoir retype effort: 62.5% complete (I’m amused that I seem to do this in 3% chunks. I’m not counting or anything, it’s just that the sections are short, and it’s difficult emotionally, especially the first 3rd, so I’ve been doing it until I felt like quitting, then I let myself stop.) 3 stories into novel:  Worked a little on one of the stories, call it 07% 9/20?Kitchen book: nothing new. Possible future editing jobs: sold the next one, stories are being submitted.

All-In-One Organizer: Need to hire a pro for this I’ve decided. After the taxes are done.

Paper cull and counting: updated tally 3/1, will move 1-2/2017 to archive next time I update the page.

Canister Labels: Avery doesn’t let you do a merge for their online template designer, etc. I need to order the correct magnets. Make tutorial.
