  1. YIKES! Normally, I’d assume you’d just go for it – all of it – and complete everything by the end of the year. However, in view of feeling like hell for the past three months, maybe you should just rest up and tackle it all next year! However, if you’re going to complete just one project, I’d vote for No. 8 – winterizing the catio. The boys would be SO happy!

    • the projects at the end are just ones i’m planning or would like to do at some point in the future… not things i’m going to do this year. i am not really planning on doing much else this year!
