The Checklist

My godmother is a spaz so I'm not sure if all the stuff is actually there or not. I do know that some things were delivered yesterday that sound vaguely familiar. I won't know for sure until I get there this afternoon.

Today, I plan to start demoing bathrooms at the restaurant. Ideally, closing one of them. (We'll have to see if that's a workable arrangement through tomorrow's business day.) I've had a running to-do list and to-pack/take list for weeks and I'm slowly ticking things down as we get closer to the start of the Marathon Memorial Day Makeover. That's what I'm calling it.
  • Find wallpapering tools. Check.
  • Find flooring installation kit. Check.
  • Pack trash bags, drop cloths, disposable gloves. Check.
  • Gather up paint supplies and hand tools. Check.
  • Locate ultra-wicked scraper (that I used in our bathroom). Check.
  • Put together in box: wallpaper paste, paint remover, wallpaper remover gel. Check.
  • Fuel up Pearl (since gas is 23 cents a gallon cheaper over the river). Check.
  • Make sure that we have other basics (straight edge, decent scissors or a cutter, pen for marking) etc. Check.
That's just the short version. I have a longer version for tomorrow when I'll be hauling power tools in prep for the flooring adventure which I expect to start on Sunday. It's no wonder then that I can't get that one song line from Smokey and the Bandit out of my head: "We've got a long way to go and a short time to get there..."

It's going to be a loooong weekend.

You "ARE" not area! Yeah, morning caffiene has not kicked in yet. Well that, and I just suck at typing.

That's an impressive to-do list. I can't wait to see the results at the end of the MMDM!
