    Finish building up the campfire, get it inspected, and start burning some of the wood on our lawn.  Stain log seat.
    Install some sort of clothes line.


Um, okay, some of those pictures are crazy old.  Like, when-we-moved-in old.  I think I need to go through the house and take some updated, full room pictures.  I'm pretty sure I'm more focused on the indoor list, because that's the stuff I do the most of.  Outdoor is a much bigger mix of Jon and I.

Really though, I just want to see our progress on the list. Current pictures could help too.  But man, having the electrical checklist from before, and seeing it now makes me real happy to see.  I'm actually holding off on the few switches/outlets I have left, since those will be easy enough to do when I get into the third trimester.  Living up the second right now, trying to get as much as I can done!  Let check off more of the list!
