What do I want to accomplish during the month of February? Well, whatever it is, it better be a short list, because February is a short month.
I’m not sure I know what I want to accomplish this month, because I’m truly hitting a point of decision fatigue. Our house is progressing to a point where there are actual decisions to be made on finishes and such; the weather is schizophrenic of late so I have to decide how many layers to wear and how to make it look like something other than the staypuft marshmallow man or the kid from that Christmas movie that couldn’t put his arms down; I’m trying to work through my yarn stash because I have a house to fill with pillows and such, and I want to buy yarns to crochet myself some hats and gloves and scarves and shit but I literally have nowhere to store any more yarn in this RV; I’m over being sick, finally, so I’m having to ease back into exercise….
Now that I’ve bitched and moaned, I guess I need to focus and make a list.
- Use up some of my yarn stash that I’ve honestly given up on trying to hide (besides, I have ideas for pillows that I’m actually excited about!)
Cut up some of Mr b’s brush pile into firewood
Pick the tile for the shower walls and for the floors throughout the house
Get Biff to tile the bathroom so we can get the toilet out of the living room
Finalize plans for the bathroom vanity that Rude Ass is going to build
Finalize plans for the platform bed with storage that Rude Ass is going to build
Find a dresser or chest of drawers to refinish for our closet
Start the great purge, because I am not moving unnecessary shit into the new house
Figure out a plan to cover the bare cinder block walls inside the closet
Get everyone’s input on fruit & nut trees and bushes to plant
That simultaneously seems like not very much ambition AND a whole lot of shit to deal with. I’m pretty sure that some gardening tasks should be on that list and I think I’ll cry if I do the research and add them to the list. I struggled alone with the garden last year, and I’m not looking forward to a repeat performance.
So now we know what I hope my February looks like. What actually happens should be interesting, at least.
