The List!

Now that it has warmed up and it seems that summer is here (it was 80F yesterday), it's time to make the list. You know which one I mean, right? The List. The list of all the things that need to be done to the house this year. The big, scary, how in the world will we do it all, list. Yep, that one.

  • Patch or replace our roof.
  • Repair two sprinklers.
  • Replace the shower head.
  • Replace downstairs toilet workings (got a dual flush kit that should be fun).
  • Fix the light in my office so it doesn't catch the house on fire.
  • Replace ugly, icky, 1980s faucet in the master bath.
Phew! OK, so maybe the list isn't that bad actually. One of the upsides of writing it all down is you can see if it's really as bad as what you think it is. Obviously the roof is going to be the largest project, and oh how I wish we could replace our shingles with solar shingles! Of course, the main problem is that instead of doing all the items on the list, I would much rather be daydreaming of being someplace like this:

What is on your house to do list this spring?


  1. Yep, I know the list you mean (although our weather hasn't warmed up at all)! Top of our list is to repaint the house and get the carpets cleaned - not very glamorous!

  2. If you can afford them, solar shingles are worth considering. But, if it would cost you that much you can have solar shingles on some part of your roof along with traditional shingles. That would also be both stylish and eco-friendly.
