The List of Doom


The past several days have been very busy for our family. We had a small family birthday party for our oldest daughter on Saturday (she turned 15!) which involved a visit to Grandma 45 minutes away. On Monday Mycah had a conference. My little man is cruising through preschool with flying colors and Mrs. H pronounced him ready for kindergarten! Of course, I’ve also been devoting a substantial amount of time to the “Moving On” portion of our family project. I hope to provide an update with photos on Friday. In the mean time…

It dawned on me after reading my favorite bloggers at Young House Love and there recent update of Listy McListerson, the original short list I whipped up when I announced “Project Moving On” was vastly inadequate. So today I will remedy that situation. Brace yourself because I ran screaming from my laptop when I finished it. Any thing crossed off is done and the list is broken down into sections by room.
