I'm updating this post daily, so be sure to check back and see how our whole house cosmetic re-do is going!
Fellow blogger, Juhli, over at A Boomer Girl's Guide inspired me with a recent post about setting monthly goals. Since September is going to be both stressful and significant with regard to finishing up a total cosmetic makeover of our new home, I thought I'd go ahead and make my own list of goals so that I can then return here and check off in order to assure myself that, yes, progress is being made.
