Dream To-Do List

I love lists.  I mean - I really LOVE lists.  I have an ongoing list for our house.  It is just one of many that I keep lying around.  I am constantly adding to and subtracting from the list.  There is no time frame for completing the projects (unless of course I get a bee in my bonnet and drive my husband so totally crazy he just gives in to get a break!)  I just like to revisit it, see where we are, and see what I might want to tackle next.  Here it is in its entirety (of course until I come up with a new crazy idea).
