The New House To-Do List

Well, our old to-do list just got bigger.  At our current home, it was getting so small, and I was excited that we would finally be able to relax.  It's all going to be worth it though, right?  We really need the extra space at this point, so a few projects here and there won't kill us, although Scott may feel differently :).


For right now, we have this list in mind, but I am sure it will change, be added to, etc.  before it's all said and done.  I am really focused on not doing things until we have the cash to pay for them, so that is why we have three different timelines for ourselves.  Hopefully we will be able to keep to that goal!  26 days until we move!!
