Ten on Tuesday

I picked this up from Florinda who does it every week, though this week she was a little late. I haven't done the list before, but I thought the subject was perfect. You can find the original post over at Ten on Tuesday. Makes sense, huh?

Anyway this week the topic was then things you'd fix in your home if you had the time and money. Only ten?

1. New siding. Our house is 39 years old and so is the siding. Enough said.

2. New driveway. The driveway isn't all that old, but two owners ago did a poor job of repairing it.

3. Landscaping. Some of it is pretty sad.

4. New master bath. The vanity is as old as I am, and doesn't look much better.

5. New carpeting. We are going to wait until the kids are a little bigger, as well as the dog.

6. New cabinets in the kitchen. They aren't old. I just don't like them.

7. Some new windows. The previous owners replaced about one half. We need to finish.

8. Refinish the wood floor in the family room. See remark on number 5.

9. Fix up the garage. More shelving and cabinets. It's a disaster.

10. Replace the doors leading to the back of the house.

I could go on, but these are the most pressing issues.

OK, I have to go watch Battlestar Galactica now.

It sounds like you could be busy for quite a long time with all those projects! I agree that you should wait for the kids and the dog to be older before you do anything about the carpet, though.

But I'm getting the idea that maybe what you really need to do is clean out your closet. :-)

Oh, I meant to tell you that the prompt for next week's "Ten on Tuesday" is "10 Favorite Actors/Actresses" - just in case you wanted to do in on Tuesday. :-)

Jenn: Har. :)

Florinda: My closet isn't as bad as you think. You can't believe everything you read. :) Thanks for the info on next week. I just might do it.

I think I may need to take a photo of your closet and sabotage, I mean guest post, on your blog and post it.
