Time for Another List

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Okay, I feel like I have made a big dent in my list, but I have also added a lot to it! That is what lists are for, right? Keep in mind that this is not a short term list...this a list that will continue to grow and probably never be completed. I have come to except this as truth. The house will never be perfect and we will have to make changes based on needs...and boredom. Anyway, here is the new and improved list! If you want to check out the last one, you can find it here
