Get it together

I really need to get in gear. I took off over the weekend which meant I did nothing outside of feeding the baby. I didn't cook, I didn't put away the laundry I washed on Wednesday, and I barely got out of the bed. It really was quite lovely, but now I just want my house in order. We have a lot to do still and we're making no progress.I figure if I blog about it, I'll be motivated enough to get some stuff done. First off, our dryer stopped working last week and our freezer cuts off periodically. Those are two big expenses that aren't in the budget right now, but I just keep singing Jesus Will Work it Out (no seriously, I sing it at the freezer daily) and I trust that he will. MrC and I can't agree on the living room color scheme. I'm going to have to put together a formal presentation to convince him I know what I'm doing. We also haven't picked colors for the guest bedroom or the office/exercise room. I need to pick fabric for my curtains and the chairs I bought 2 years ago to reupholster but I haven't done that either. Oh, our vacuum cleaner is broken. I keep meaning to take it apart to see if I can fix it, but I haven't. I want new floors, but that's not high on the priority list right now. We have a leaky window in the kitchen that we need to fix before the snow comes and a hinge broke on one of our cabinets. I'd really like new cabinets and a new counter top in the kitchen too. You know what would help me get all this done? If HGTV came and did it. I'd be really appreciative. We're a cute little family, we could be on tv. A nice windfall of money would help too. I don't mind doing the work myself, we just need somebody to pay for it. I'll set a goal, by January 1, everything that we can afford to get done will be done. That means at LEAST the house will be painted. I'm going to do do better, starting with today's trip to get groceries. Be back tomorrow, hopefully with some actual progress reports.

I love our house and being a homeowner. However, owning a home is like one big rolling bill. We just got 2 trees cut down, and our front steps re-cemented. Everything else is on hold, but the list is long. **crossing fingers for you**
