To-Do List (Updated)

We washed, dried, cleaned, scrubbed, and crossed so many things off our To-Do list yesterday (and a few things this morning)! We got so much done, and I couldn’t be happier. We even added a few things onto our list that we had forgotten to add earlier.

I just found out that I will have about an hour tomorrow between work and when my father-in-law will actually come to SEE the house. This gives me just the right amount of time to finish a few last-minute decorating tasks to check off!

What we got done is crossed off. What I’m still planning to do is left on the list in red. All other items have been disregarded until our potluck party in mid-July.
