Ah, remnants of once having lived in a funeral home – Fix-It February is over and it’s time to do the “Fix-It February 2015 Postmortem.”
All-in-all, my first Fix-It February was FANTASTIC.
I worked all month with my favorite helper, my daughter. Don’t get me wrong, my paid helpers are fabulous, but my room-and-board helper is pretty fabulous too. And it costs about the same.
I taught her well, and it’s a joy to watch her determination, willingness, intelligence and enthusiasm. She’s visiting for a couple more weeks, so I’m hoping that Fix-It February gets extended.
We fixed 28 things and chopped 16 things from my master to-do list. We also, unfortunately, added 3 more projects to that list. Two were projects unearthed in the process of fixing something else. (I hate it when that happens!) And one project got added because our quick-fix entirely broke what we were resolving. (I hate it when that happens, too.)
So what did we do? Boring projects. Old projects. Fun projects. New projects. Electrical tasks. Plumbing fixes. Annual cleaning tasks. You name it; if it fit with the Fix-It February rules, we tackled it. And it was good.
Now I’m trying to think of other months I can rename to improve my life – Organizing October, anyone?
