I’ve had some projects on my to-do list. They are big projects and I can’t do them alone. They are actually construction-type projects. I’ve had my name on a list for a long time…in some cases before Kramer passed away in 2019.
These are all things that I keep telling myself have to get done before I can retire…who am I kidding, I’ll never retire. I’ll rephrase that, these are the things that have to get done before I can slow down…who am I kidding. These are the things I want to get done.
2-kitchen lights fixed
3-back garage fixed
4-add shower to main floor bathroom
5-get a new vehicle
These things have all been on my list for some time. The lawn is the thing that’s been on the list for forever… I’ve asked and asked for dirt to come but it hasn’t happened. FINALLY, it did!!
Most of it went in that hole that came several years ago. On our property there used to be another house. That house was torn down and buried. Well, that dirt settled and made a hole…so I needed dirt to fill it.
We dug a hole, then burned and buried the part of our house that we tore off. It’s slightly dipped in the lawn. I had the driver put a bit of dirt there.
The kids loved watching the dirt be unloaded.
You can see a bit of my back garage showing in the photo above. That’s the garage I wanted to be fixed.
Believe it or not, the next day the carpenters showed up to work on that!!
Of course, every project has a hang-up. The added expense to this was that I had to buy a new people door. UGH. I’ve done enough projects to know that every one has a hang-up or added expense.
The garage had old wood siding on it. That came off.
You can see how bad the siding was looking.
The guys are still working on this. I can’t wait until it’s finished.
That leaves three more projects on my list once these are finished. I’m sure there will be more wait-waits until it’s finally a GO!
