Why do they call it a Honey-Do list? It sounds like Honeydew, like you're trying to be extra sweet. "No, I'm not still nagging you about fixing the lawn mower. I'm just putting it on this cute little list. See?"
I have a lot of small projects that I don't have time to do, so I keep hoping The Mister will just do them someday. But he doesn't, and I get that long sigh sound every time I bring them up. My new tactic is to go around taking pictures of all the things in our house that need work. Everybody likes pictures.
Note: I'm not saying The Mister is the only one who can do these. Stuff like painting I can definitely work on, too. It's just that The Mister knows where to find all the supplies to do these things, whereas I'd be digging around in the basement for an hour just to find a brush.
|This is a mess|
|Too much yellow|
|Why don't they match?|
|Update this to indicate we've had children|
|Needs a trim piece|
|Paint (or something)|
|Cover this up!|
|Cover this up, too|
|What is this?|
|Does something go here?|
|Fix and paint|
|Fix (even though technically, I broke it)|
|We could get rid of most of these?|
|Something wrong with internet|
|Finish painting this|
|Sad and ugly|
|Pick one. I don't even care.|
|Can we do something about this?|
Update: since I'm blogging this a few days after actually taking the pictures, two of the things on the list have already been done. Of course, I've already discovered some other things that needed doing. I hear that EVERYONE'S house has unfinished projects that no one seems to want to do.
