"The List" of 2010

Remember this list? This list was posted in January 2010:

The upcoming projects include:
  • stripping woodwork (in progress)
  • removing old wallpaper (in progress, going great!)
  • paint walls and woodwork (I know, I know)
  • level yard
  • retaining wall along front sidewalk
  • french drains
  • fix gutters
  • repair driveway
  • new back patio pavers
  • Restore the 5 sash windows
So much for lists. In 2010 we've:
  • fixed one gutter of the two
  • finished the paint stripping/wallpaper removal and painting in the dining room
The yard project is about to get started, but the retaining wall is on the back burner, pending some other projects. This month, we're hoping to start the french drains and leveling of the yard, along with a landscaping overhaul. "Overhaul" sounds impressive, but mostly we'll remove most of the plants that aren't working, bring in some new ones, and (hopefully) build some raised beds for the 2011 gardening season.
