Happy New Year!

Been a few weeks since I posted, things have just been crazy at home and at work. Actually the whole year has been crazy. Looking back at the year, there were a lot of things that I would have liked to have gotten done.

Below was my to do list from 2008:

Planned:
- Finish Attic Insulation - nope
- Finish Bathroom Remodel - nope
- Squirrel Proof the Attic - nope
- Paint Living Room - nope
- Remodel Playroom for the Kids - nope
- Make Interior Storm Windows - 3 down, 20+ to go
- Obtain as much free stuff from craigslist as possible - yup (piano, excercise bike, couch, swingset, tall A-frame ladder)

Unplanned:
- Install New Hot Water Heater - yes, the slow leak in the old water heater decided the basement just wasn't wet enough
- Clean/Paint Kids Room Closet - yes
- Cut up Tree Sized Branch that fell from Maple in the Backyard - almost, a few branches left
- Start Composting - yes, got a free composter from you guessed it, craigslist
- Replace Cracked Cast Iron Drain from "Remodeled Bathroom" - nope

Didn't get as much done as I had hoped in 2008 and the unplanned list just has a way of getting in the way. So I look to the new year with new motivation and a new list!

For 2009:

- Finish Bathroom Remodel
- Make 20+ Interior Storm Windows
- Remodel Playroom for the Kids
- Repair Ceiling in Kids Room
- Finish Attic Insulation
- Squirrel Proof the Attic
- Paint Living Room
- Fix Front Porch and Steps
- Clean up the Yard
- Put up Swing Set

Let's see how I make out...
