Planning … Again

Yesterday, I made a list with several separate subsets of “to-dos.”

On one side of the page, I separately listed all of the things I still need to do in the bathroom and kitchen. *Sigh* That is one hell of a list! Daunting, to say the least.

On the other side, I listed all of the things I need to do related to these projects, like measure for and order the special order tile to put along the top of the shower surround. That list is shorter and more manageable. I figure that as I am able to cross those things off the list at least the page will bear SOME evidence of progress!

And, on the adjacent page, I have listed all the things I need to have Lawrence do or that I need to discuss with him. Yes, Lawrence – THAT Lawrence! He called me out of the blue on Friday afternoon. (He must be psychic as his name has come up a lot lately.) I’m trying to work out some days next month for him to reappear on the scene. But first, I have work I need to complete so that he can do the things I’ve listed for him. That's kind of a tall order.

I hope that I will be able to take care of some of that later this week. I’m planning to take a few days of vacation (I DO still get vacation time) from the WEEKS I have stockpiled for the year. If the weather cooperates, as well as my stamina, I should be able to get ‘er done. Or, at least enough of it to get Lawrence back on the job.

Here’s hoping.

I hope your stamina holds out and you get a lot done!

Oh, it's precious. As a single "older woman" I have had to devise many clever plans to move large items. It always works, although it takes forever while I plot and scheme, twist and tilt.

In the end, it works and when I have had workers do things (moving, carpet cleaning, demolition) they are careless and costly.

Invest in a heavy duty convertible dolly, adjustable nylon straps (not bungee cords), some silicone furniture moving disks, and you can tilt the world!
