Updated Rest of the Year List

Back in July, I made a list of stuff to do around the house before the end of the year.  I highly doubt I'll be doing much else the rest of the year, so here is an update:

  • Paint that damned kitchen window DONE!!
  • Paint the fake-y wood closet door in our living room the same semi-gloss white as the rest of our trim/doors DONE!!
  • Paint the railing and retaining wall that leads out from our lower level utility room (the rail is rusting and the paint is chipping/old) HALF DONE!  I only did the railing.  I guess I'll have to wait 'til May for the rest.
  • Get the surround sound in the family room working (we have all the components, I think, and the last owner was an audiophile who'd installed speakers into the wall/ceiling for the tv) DONE!! Thanks, Dad.
  • MAYBE: If I save enough money, I may have the house replumbed.  Our old cast iron pipes are deteriorating from the inside and and close to going bad.  When we got a new water heater a couple months ago, the guys said it did not look good which corresponds to how badly our pipes deliver water in winter.  This will definitely get done, it's just a matter of when.  And I will obviously have to hire this out.   Nope.  Still need to save my emergency money.

I'll need to start thinking about what I can accomplish indoors this winter.  I'm thinking...

  • Paint the insides of a few closets.  I've been wanting to do this for a while but I keep putting it off.
  • Frame and hang a lot of art I have. 
  • I have no idea what else.  Dust, probably.  Been a while. 

What have you accomplished this year?  Any winter plans?
