Can't drag my feet anymore...

If I continue to drag my feet about finishing up this house I'm gonna have to see an orthopedic doctor!

I really do have to get all these little things finished up so that I can focus on the few remaining big things - like the basement.

The basement work is at the other end of the tunnel. I can't work on the basement because it's got stuff still in it... like all the stuff that belongs upstairs. Hmmm - guess I should explain for those who don't know - I'm in the process of getting this house ready to sell so that we can move.

The wood floors were refinished this summer - a process that requires that you move everything out of those areas. Since every room in my house (except my bathrooms) has hardwood floors - it meant everything had to go. So we threw away, packed away (in two PODS), gave away and finally stuffed away all our stuff. What we were keeping to put back in the house went into either the closets, bathrooms, front porch, basement or garage.

Now I can't bring all that stuff back upstairs until all the other work is done - like the painting. And it seems like we are painting everywhere... well it doesn't seem like we are - we ARE painting everywhere. At least one if not all of the walls, ceiling, and/or trim in each room is getting whacked with a brush or roller. My arm will only do so much painting at a time - I'm probably just being a weenie about the whole thing... a numb hand isn't a big deal is it? If my left hand weren't so clumsy and uncoordinated it would be more help...

So I'm at the point of tying up loose ends this week... finish a few more touch up things (oh and the kitchen ceiling) and then move the paint containers downstairs and start moving the house stuff upstairs.

This week I need to call the realtor... see where the market is these days and get this show on the road.
