Baby Steps

You've got to crawl before you walk; you've got to walk before you run. This is the approach I am taking to my list of lists. By next week, I've got to be ready to dash at lightning speed!

I'm feeding that approach by doing "little" jobs each night. I added a few screws to the backerboard in the kitchen last night. I still need to add a few more. I had neglected to plug my drill back in after using it over the weekend and so, after putting down just a handful of screws, it was dead.

I also put brads into the two doors for the bathroom cabinets to hold the beadboard panels in place until I can put finishing strips in to secure them.

Since it's finally stopped raining, tonight I might do some of the jobs that got scrubbed over the weekend thanks to Mother Nature. Namely, putting posts up on the deck and putting the kickplate on the backdoor. Neither of those should be too tough, I hope.

In the meantime, I've also been looking at the sliding shelves for some of the kitchen cabinets. I think I've found a good place and I got a rough idea of what the cost would be. I also ordered the two bases for the columns on the front porch. (You know, the ones I've BEEN ordering for seven or eight months now!) OK. Maybe not that long, but not that far off either.

So, the momentum has started. Slowly. But it will pick up.
