So Productive!

I feel so productive today! I managed to clear off the dining room table and the coffee table. It looked worse than this before picture. Plus I swept, put away the clean dishes, scrubbed the tub and went for a bike ride at a local trail. It was a bit harrowing at times considering that I have a road bike and I was struggling to get it over roots, logs and through the mud! Kevin has a proper mountain bike so he was just flying through everything. Eventually I gave up and just biked along the paved trails while Kevin was thrashing his way through the trails. We're gonna try to go out on the bikes twice a month or so. He says my bike looks used now (courtesy of the mud stains) rather than living it's life in a garage.

So I've come up with a "Honey Do" list for myself - 12 projects in 12 months. I figure if I have a set item each month, they'll actually get done. My January project is:

Decorate bedroom including:

  1. Finish painting other two walls,
  2. get pictures framed and hung,
  3. buy a hamper &
  4. get a bench for foot of bed.
  5. buy/make nice window dressings.
I'll let you know how successful I am for this month.

Good luck. I find decorating to be a very satisfying job. I made a bunch of roman shades for my house last year and it worked out pretty well and I saved myself a ton of money.

Biking sounds like so much fun! My husband and I used to do that when we were dating and he lived with his parents (we'd borrow their bikes). We talk about buying bikes for ourselves, but never get around to it.

Good for you for making a project list! Your first one sounds exactly like my "to do" list. I really need to start decorating our house, especially our bedroom! I need to buy pictures and window dressings. I'm not a big fan of decorating :-P

I'm laughing at your verification word on my blog, too funny! Although I think riding your bikes is WAY more active then my running. Glad you had a nice New year's and got home safe.

My NY resolution also concerns my room; but I'm giving myself the whole year to get it done. :) I like the 12 months of "Honey Dos" for myself though, I might try that.
