Willpower

Below is a list of things we will accomplish while the weather is warm. Yes, I said will, not “hope to” or “plan to.” If I say will, maybe it’ll actually happen.

  • Finish the master bathroom. (Stop laughing! Really, I mean it! Stop!)
  • Scrape, repair and paint the disintegrating-before-our-very-eyes front porch floor.
  • Tile the kitchen countertops and backsplash with the hex tiles I bought roughly one million years ago.
  • Repair screens on the storm windows, in preparation for the brief autumn window-opening time.

Now that isn’t really so much to ask, is it? June, July, August, September. That’s 18 weekends, and Darwin will be off work the whole week of July 4th.

Plenty of time.

(You’re laughing again. I said stop it!)

Hi Kristin! Your list sounds more reasonable than mine. I'm afraid my hopes are a little too high!

We're laughing with you, not at you. No, seriously, you can do. Tackle the thing you dread the most first. Get it out of the way. After that, the wind will be at your back the rest of the summer.
