Editor's Note: We were asked to pick 11 items or resolutions to get done in 2011 and this is how it's going. How is your list?
1. Have a Baby - DOING!
I'm still expecting a baby. This is the mulligan on my list.
2. Paint My Bedroom - DONE!
The pink is gone! My bedroom is now the most beautiful steely navy blue! My sister and her husband donated their labor to get most of the room done. I need to go back in and do the touch-ups (because I'm, uhm, a little anal about painting finish work.) It was early February and the fumes were so bad, my husband and I slept on the sectional downstairs for one night. The bonus? He stayed on the sectional and I got to sleep in my room for two nights with the windows wide open to the freezing air. It was sublime. I love breathing in fresh mountain air. I'm married to Delicate McFlorida who can't handle that kind of cold, so I relished the chance.
3. Finish my Dining Room Table
My unfinished dining room table is still unfinished, but I have the perfect excuse! I can't actually finish it until it's warm and dry enough that I can drag the table outside to do the work. So stop looking at me funny, OK?
4. Honest to Goodness Wardrobe Change-outs - DONE
I put away all my regular clothes in favor of my maternity wardrobe. I switched out the kids' clothes and filled their closets with only the items that fit.
5. So Help Me, Clear Off My Desk--DONE and NEEDS TO BE DONE AGAIN.
6. Mending Clothes - DONE
Remember my 7-year-old’s pants that were for single use only? I patched several pairs of pants! Sewed leather shapes onto his knees and it's bought us another couple months.
7. Potty Train my Three-Year-Old
I don't want to talk about this.
8. Start Some Seeds
I am conflicted. Can I really plant a brand new garden and have a baby right in the middle of it all? I don't know if I can do the upkeep although I really want the herbs and produce. I need either some encouragement or a reality check, help me out, peeps.
9. Plant those Plants
10. Get The Pumpkin Off My Porch - DONE!
It, uh, melted into the grass.
11. Watch More TV - DONE!
I watched more TV and I may watch some more!
