My mother has decided to inform me that I have too many projects "in process" and this is why I feel nothing gets done (I hate it when mothers are right!). SO we are in the project completion or complete as far as I can phase. First is the kitchen. I started painting it this winter and have 1-1/2 walls done with the 1/2 wall needed only a second coat of paint. Than I picked up some wallpaper (wanted bead-board but too $$ right now) that looks like bead board. We are attempting to hang that Wed. This will at least have the walls looking clean and finished. After my June visitors leave, we are going to rip out the kitchen carpeting (yes carpeting, green, 70's UGLY)... but that has to wait a little.
Than on to the backyard. We finished laying the 11 patio blocks to complete last years project and were going to cover more grass with mulch to eliminate additional grass. This should decrease the mowing in the back by 1/3. Will post pictures upon project completion.
