the list.

I love lists, I really do. I feel the need to make one for every reason. It helps me remember what I need to buy, what I need to do, things that I want. Lists in general are just great to me. This one on the other hand I'm going to be in trouble. Have you ever heard the lamb chop never ending song? Well I feel this is how this list will be. It will be the list that doesn't end, yes it goes on and on my friend.

What is this list I am referring to you ask, well let me tell you. The list of items that need to get done to finish our condo. I made this list up one day and while sitting at dinner one evening I slipped it to my husband across the table. And then came the best part, his face, it was priceless. It was a jaw dropping, blank evil eye stare are you kidding me kind of face. As if I don't bother him enough, I have now complied a list of what needs to be done. Without Further Ado:

Okay Well there you have it. I will check back with this list frequently to update it with things we have completed. It seems like so much when it is listed out this way. I feel by the time it all gets done we will be moving. 

Does anyone else have a list like this that just never seems to end? Home-ownership is like a constant state of remodeling or re-doing. I want to be at the point where I can sit and enjoy.
