Topic for 1/10/11: From the mundane to the emotional, from paneling the basement walls to patching it up with the brother in Virginia you haven't spoken to since you voted for Carter and he didn't, unfinished business is something left undone or incomplete. It even can haunt you. What's your unfinished business?
I have LOTS of unfinished business -most of it around the house.
Speaking of the hallway and missing carpet, I started putting the new flooring in when I discovered that the final course of planking was two inches too wide. I got a table saw so I could make the cuts straight and even without worrying about dropping the saw on my foot - but I couldn't figure out how to put it all together. Ray (the guy I bought if from) found his instruction manual, which included assembly directions, so now I can finish putting it together and finish my floor!
We moved into this house a little over three years ago. The first thing I had to do was replace the toilet in the upstairs hall bathroom. Knowing that I would eventually redo that bathroom, I pulled the wall paper off and primed the drywall behind the toilet. The toilet got put in and all the other bathrooms got renovated, but this one is still left to be done.
All of those projects will get finished. I'm making a list of all the things I need to finish in my house. I can check those off fairly quickly... but there's one project that's long term. I won't be checking this one off anytime soon.
