As you can see from the mildew-y wall in the photo above, I didn't finish everything I wanted to this summer around the house. I had such an unbelievably long to-do list this summer and I barely checked off half of the items on that list.
I feel grateful--my sister and I painted the entire top floor of my house, laid over 1,000 square feet of vinyl tile flooring, installed a new toilet and kitchen sink, repaired small items here and there, built a dog house, a fence, a patio, and a patio roof. And all of that while basically living out of a suitcase and entertaining relatives from out of town.
Still, there is so much more work to be done! I guess it will have to wait until next summer, God willing. I have to admit, I'm not looking forward to leaving without at least pressure-washing and painting some more. But I am just too exhausted to do more than prepare myself and Suzie Q to travel again. May He make it easy on us.
