Plans for 2012

8 Jan

The ten-year anniversary of my living here on Mattoon Street approaches, and the completion date for renovations moves a bit further into the future.

There’s no way I can finish everything this year, so now I’m aiming for 2017 — a fifteen-year renovation process. Sigh.

Goals for this year:

  • Finish installing new storm windows ($$$$$)
  • Have all windows washed
  • Put a dimmer switch on the big chandelier
  • Fix burned-out sconce in monkey bar
  • Seal and re-paint the stoop
  • Install (leopard-print) carpet in the dining room ($$$)
  • Do something — anything — to make progress on big plumbing project

As always, this list seems totally reasonable and do-able. Now that I FINALLY have a stable, full-time job, perhaps I’ll really be able to achieve everything on it. If not, there’s always next year….
