I had to help my dad with putting together some shelves and cleaning out his freezers. He just moved into a new place and with how my back was already hurting getting all that crap done kind of sucked.

Looked at shed plans online and debated for the 100th time whether to build it or buy one (not from a box store but from a Barn and Shed company- they do great work)
Played cleaning catch up after having the kids home for a week on spring break and not getting much done around the house.
Began getting the guest room ready for my parents to come stay for a while now that they have sold their house.

We really need to get a shed. There snow blower and lawnmower and gardening stuff don't need to be taking up so much space in our garage - they always seem to get in the way of whatever I'm doing down there. There's a "shed" (I used the term very loosely) already in our yard, but the entrance is only about 3 feet tall. It's obviously hand made from pine trees that were cut down along the property. It's almost horror movie level creepy in it. Eventually we want to tear it down so we can put up a real shed on that space (along with a nice poured concrete slab for it to rest on). For now the kids like to climb on it... I'll be happy when the eyesore is finally gone.

It's 10:30 and so far I have done 2 loads of wash, brought the Jeep in for an emissions test (it passed!) and went to the Post Office to mail out 2017 tax payments (UHG!). Still on tap for today is a 12:30 blood donation appointment, taking my daughter to her softball game, dropping my car off for a repair to be done tomorrow and taking the Jeep to the Dealership for an oil change.

Same here. Finally getting around to painting the trim in our master bath. I ran out of time last year when we moved in and didn't finish the trim. I am also trying to run loads of laundry in between coats.
And to +1 Kwak- I HATE painting trim and doors.

My wife is out of town but I don't want to get any lazier than I've already been so I'm painting the wainscoting. Wife has been grumbling about how dusty it's getting so I've clearly been slacking. I put the first coat on the foyer today but will likely have to put another coat or two down. I'm going by feel (texture) more than by look; the light is pretty bad even with it being sunny.
