Last week, we decided to take a long weekend- in part because it was our anniversary and also to give us a couple of extra days to focus on getting some things done here. We have this punch list- actually we call it "THE LIST"- where we've detailed out all of the things we are hoping to accomplish on the house by the time summer officially rolls around. 

So our time off these past few days was in fact spent staining fences, laying sod, hanging blinds and planting vegetables. Yes, in fact you now know I'm about as un-hip a Hipster as they come these days. In the interest of keeping it real around these parts, I'll even make another confession. Despite copious amounts of hand washing, I feel like I have had a perpetual line of dirt under my fingernails- hell, in my ears and up my nose even- for months now. The Mister looked at me on Saturday night and informed me that he purposely let me walk around with a dirt mustache all day because he thought it was cute. I guess I'd have bigger problems if he thought it wasn't.

But I've digressed... my real intention of this post is to simply say that while house projects typically equal relaxation for me, THE LIST is giving me anxiety. With Memorial Day weekend coming up, our deadline is fast approaching and it feels like it might not all get done like we wanted. 

We may have to re-think our deadline. Or just bust our asses to get it done. The jury is still out on which way that will go. We'll see where we are at after the muscle fatigue wears off over the next day or two.
