Today is the end of the Ten Things in Ten Days Challenge.
Here was my list:
1. Finish painting my dressing table. Even though I know I will change it soon(ish?) I would like to actually complete something.
3. Help the boys get their room in order. If I showed a 'before' photo right now you'd faint.
9. Clean the inside of the van with all the right stuff so it's shiny-perfect. (Shortcuts are so ugly when it comes to stuff like this. Can you say "Streaked windows"?
10. Do a tax amendment form. Pray for me on this one, I'm flying solo with just my reading comprehension skills.
Not exactly ten out of ten. I did accomplish a lot, though. I painted another table, mirror frame, and soap dispenser, primed yet another table, cleaned out some vintage suitcases (yuch) and planned a last minute vacation. I am taking my mother to Asheville, Hilton Head, and Savannah. She's never been to the ocean before, so I am taking her. I have to admit the past two days were mostly spent trying to wrestle a winning bid out of the hotel section at Priceline.
I also scored a great new bunch of tables and other things. Of course they all need substantial amounts of work. I still want to make the van perfect, get the boys room rolling along, and do the pedicure before I leave in a couple of days. I also need to do a mountain of laundry, along with planning and packing for the trip.
The ten in ten was fun. I feel like I accomplished a lot. I'm not even beating myself up about not sticking to the list. I did much more than I might have done without the challenge.
I'm most excited about trying new things and having success with them.
