I have learned two things:You can't stretch carpet in cold weather.
And running an industrial size electric heater for over month straight will cause one's electric bill to rise significantly. (We are talking from $23 to over 500.)
I am wheeling away at the computer just now this morning, listening to Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros trying to decide what of all the one million things I need to do
will actually get done. Here's to you Christie Wild, I am going to make a list. (Be not confused however, this is a
partial list of the one million things, not what is going to get accomplished today.)
Get gas turned on at Corley Street
re-cover dining chairs
go through the "game" closet that has become an unsatisfactory filling cabinet over the last four years (yikes!)
make my "MAP" hanging pendant light to go over the bar (pics on that later)
take Simon to speech therapy
empty out the storage unit
take outdoor bench to Corley
figure out what in the world I am going to make for dinner
go grocery shopping
fold AND PUT AWAY the laundry
have a dance party in the living room with Simon and Wesley
make a poster for my Relief Society event
go to post office
get oil changed
pay the beaver trapper (that's right, some people have bug guys, we have a beaver guy)
get dressed (maybe this should be closer to the top of the list)
find babysitters for our trip to LA (Valentine's week)
get the file cabinet off the carport
put up the new mailbox
hang pegboards in shop
paint tool outlines on the pegboard
Like I said, this is a partial list.
Oh yeah, and pack.
That's right, they look sweet, but we prefer trees. I guess you gotta choose which one you're gonna hug.
