Thursday Thirteen

Things that need to be done around my house:

1. The garden from last year still needs to be cleared out, tilled, and prepped for planting this year. Right now it's just a pitiful looking mess.

2. The master bathroom still needs painting from the tile and walk-in shower installation we did last August.

3. New fixtures also need to be installed in said bathroom.

4. The medicine cabinet in said bathroom needs to be removed, stained or painted, and put back in place.

5. Our bedroom needs to be painted.

6. My office needs to be painted.

7. The small bathroom out in the garage, which we never use for anything except storage, needs to have the toilet pulled out, the hole stopped up, and shelves purchased so we can use it better, since we don't use it as a spare half-bath.

8. My files all need to be gone through and old things either scanned into a computer or thrown away.

9. Old photos need to be scanned and turned into ... something. And many of them need to be thrown away.

10. We need to tear out the kitchen flooring and replace it with tile. Currently it is parquet and after nearly 30 years it is quite worn.

11. Tear out the carpeting in the living room and replace it with either hardwood or laminated floors.

12. Clean out the small storage building on the back of the property.

13. Clean out the attic.

Whew. I seriously doubt much of that gets done this year, since I am not able to do much of it, but that's some of what needs to be done. When you live in a house long enough, eventually the chores all come around again.

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 344th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Oh, man. You're making me think of my own to-do list. Grin. May we both get it all done.

  2. That's a lot on your to-do list. I need to work on finishing the project I started a few years ago of scanning old family photos, so that I can copy to discs to share with other family members. I also need to catch up on my scrapbooks.

  3. I got most of may house painting done. Yay! Except for a bit of dabbing here and there, it should be good until I rip off the back end of the house and replace it. :)

  4. I think I just need to learn how to paint. It would be nice to be able to decorate things in just a few hours. I have a friend who once painted her boyfriends room for him while he was gone to work for a surprise birthday present. I would like to paint some of my walls here and there a different color in each room and inside the closets. Maybe I'll start with shelves or inside drawers.

    For me, cleaning out the attic sounds interesting as there are always things forgotten about.

  5. Seems that I also have many similar projects, especially organizing, scanning and tossing paperwork in my workspace.
