a list of sorts

yesterday we got the signed purchase agreement back from the seller, which is a huge relief to me for some reason. i’m not so worried about the financing now. in less than a month, nate and i should be new owners of a house that is entirely too big for us. but it was an awesome deal and it has a lot of potential, especially on the walls (haha).
as a soon-to-be new homeowner, there’s a lot of things i need and want to do, but the main things at first are:
paint (!!!!)
buy a mirror for the downstairs bathroom
fix the leaky piping to the downstairs bathroom
fix the downstairs bathroom’s sink hookups (or lack thereof)
fix the upstairs bathroom’s TP holder
putty/plaster all the holes in the walls the previous owners left (why on earth would you use screws to hang everything??)
clean everything
fix the deadbolt
buy curtains/blinds
buy a new entertainment system
empty the sump
buy a red couch
buy a lawn mower
buy a snow shovel
buy a ladder
construct my firepit with the random rocks in the yard and the sandpile
get some patio furniture for my patio
get rid of the dead trees šŸ™
within a year, i want to:
knock down a wall in the family room/den (well, this is nate’s thing)
build a deck
have a garden
landscape
plant many trees!!!
plant a lilac bush
plant peonies (maybe i will do that this fall – they are bulb plants, right?)
get a bird feeder
well, that’s a start.
