Projects for 2009 list- are you listening, honey?

We started out so gung ho last year trying to get our house remodeled that by July I was pooped out for the year. We have a 3000 square foot house and I painted every inch of it- except for our bath and the kids bath. They both have wallpaper that is permanently adhered to the sheetrock so requires mudding after you make holes in the sheetrock. We painted it all, put wood floors down on the first floor, changed our master vanity, faucets, put in new kitchen appliances, changed most light fixtures, and painted the bases of the kitchen cabinets. I don't know what happened but I had no desire to complete anything after July. We had worked nights and weekends to do all the other projects. Well, I am ready to get some things done. I am really ready to sew and craft and can't wait to work on some projects. I finally have a big desk to work on, and I can leave projects out while working on them instead of having to clean off the table to eat. My family was weird about that- they alway want food.
