projects while the kids were at Mimi's and Papa's

The list and what I got done :

paint trim in my room got the ceiling trim done, and some of the door frames. still have 2 window frames and 1 door frame to do.
paint ceiling in my room painted half of it with one coat. still need to paint the rest and do another coat.
remove door, paint, strip hardware, make lock work removed and painted door, stripped hardware, got a key for the original lock, but haven't put the door back up yet.
paint stairs painted 3 of 11 stairs with one coat. painted half the risers with 2 coats and half the risers with 1 coat. Luke stepped onto one of the stairs and got footprints all over the landing (which also needs to be painted.)
paint front door (this has been on my to do list for over 2 years now) painted one coat of black and hated it. painted 2 coats of white. still needs one more coat to completely cover the black.
make apron for Amanda - who won the giveaway last month made it, just waiting for address so I can send to her.
make myself some pj pants didn't even cut out.
watch Jane Eyre kept forgetting about it and instead wasted time watching Jon and Kate plus 8. Unfortunately that's what cancer stress does to a person.

I also had several doctor's appointments, a dental appointment, went school shopping with Dan, and had a fun time with Luke. Didn't do a lick of cleaning.

Also - I always think it would be nice not to have ADD and finish one project before beginning another. But paint takes so long to dry! Why not paint on 4 projects at a time and not finish one of them. Great idea :)

Leigh leigh lumpkin...love you to pieces and I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues....I heard you talked to Kaye and I hope she was a good resource for you and she has totally been through it and has like 7/8ths of a thyroid left. We'll be praying for you and hope that you come to peace with a decision about your surgery. Love-The Esplins xoxo

Sounds like you were very productive! More than I would have done :) You've done a great job so far with your house; I'm so glad I got to see it last month.

I have a list like that too and a lot of half finished projects. I don't quite remember how I hopped over to this space but I'm going to keep on reading!
