So I don’t think I have been here in 3-4 months. And guess what, I haven’t finished any of these goals either. A few I am actively working on, and others, well, I forgot to consider.
I quit coming to 43 things because I became obsessed with listsofbests.com, and then I quit going to all of them.
I wish I would have kept my listsofbests updated.
I also wish I would have painted the trim and such. I have been painting the walls inside my home, a nice muted color that looks clean. But we stopped with only one room to go, and we need to finish that too now. I have scraped the kitchen ceiling, but have not painted it yet. I bought the paint a few weeks ago though. I have a date to fix the kitchen floor lined up, but that won’t be for another 7 months.
of the house before we started any work on it, for comparison purposes.
