So How’d We Do??

We started the weekend with quite the ambitious TO DO list. It’s now Sunday night and boy did we get a lot done!!

So lets see where we ended up:



  • Get rid of sawdust Postponed. We have to sand joint compound, which will just make more dust, so we’re waiting.
  • Vacuum & wipe down ALL the walls, trims, moldings, bathrooms, etc…Ditto above
  • Clean Kitchen (I’m pretty sure the freezer is growing a lovely green carpet inside.) {{and I just threw up a little in my mouth.}} Done!! And what a project this was. We have the best mothers ever.

Master bedroom

  • Re-secure plaster to wall – In progress. Long story short, the plaster was so bad it couldn’t be repaired. Had to remove it & install drywall. I have pictures.
  • Spackle, tape, etc. – Also in progress.
