Reality has brought me back to our house and gets me dreaming about this one. What can we do to get it back in shape? What can we do to make it more friendly for guests? Probably the two bests things we can do is to do a HUGE purge. We've been in this house for almost 10 years and we have so much stuff, shoved in nooks and crannies that just hasn't gotten used in years. I may possibly just need to take advantage of those folks that call saying they'll have a truck in my area on such and such date and find a couple bags and boxes of stuff for them. Some stuff may be hard to get rid of, but would love to be strong enough to purge our house as if we were moving into a 800 - 900 square foot house (currently ours is about 1800 sq. ft. according to tax records, but that doesn't include the basement we had remodeled and the extra 1/2 bath down there).
After a big purge, it would be nice to be able to actually clean in all those nooks and crannies. Add some fresh paint, new trim ~ possibly (builder used door molding as floor molding). Possibly change out the flooring on the main level to all hardwood and redo the carpeting upstairs in the bedrooms.
Yes, I even have dreams for outside too! Lots of wishing and dreaming there for various things. Just don't want to dream to far in advance so that it seems out of reach.
