Checklist Wednesday

 Go check out my GIVEAWAY!!!

I am now dedicating my Wednesdays to the giant checklist of crap I want to do!
I feel like this will help with my decorating ADD or it might just depress me, we'll see :)

Please note that this is the overall list I would like to get done while living here for many many years---this is a marathon not a race!!

After talking with my super cool aunt, she advised me to work on one room at a time. She said I would get less discouraged about things not getting done because you can see the progress more easily.  Makes sense :)

Plus, each week I make a list on paper and promptly use it or put the grocery list on the back ---so I am saving the planet by putting it on my blog!
