To Do List Update

A few months ago I posted a comprehensive to-do list for my house.  It actually DID help me clear out some mental angst regarding stressing myself out over knowing all the stuff I needed to do. Now that I have it written down, all I need to do is reference my blog when I have spare time to attend to any of the many projects that I haven’t completed.
