- Go camping.
- Scrapbook almost every day before fall hits and I no longer have time.
- Take lots of wonderful, well-lit sun-kissed golden photos of my children until all hours of the night.
- Mentally prepare myself that Jude will be starting kindergarten in less than two months.
- Scrapbook at night, too, whenever I can work it in there.
- Go for a picnic or three with the kids.
- Repaint every remaining room on the upper floor that has not been repainted already.
- Tear off the stuccoed wall-paneling from the basement walls and drywall, tape, mud, and paint them.
- Re-do the flooring in my kitchen, entrance, dining room, bathroom, and stairs.
- Get my office organized.
- Record at least three more songs.
- Do a performance or two.
- Organize my office for the winter teaching season.
- Keep making new-house-based decisions.
- Cook three meals a day.
- Keep my house semi-clean.
- Make sure nobody has to wear their clothes for more than three days before they have clean ones to put on.
- Scrapbook in the mornings, if it's a really good day, and I've hired a babysitter.
- Occasionally post on my blog.
- See my friends occasionally, too.
- Hug my kids every day.
- Kiss my husband every day.
Even given that I will be only peripherally involved in the renovation projects, do you think that maybe I'm indulging in a little wishful thinking?
Oh, and also--when I got to the end of this list, I realized that if I were to type it in order of priority, it would have to be pretty much reversed. In case anyone was wondering.
Happy New Week, friends!
