Hi Lisa, welcome to the team from me in Australia
I'm with you on the ugly bathroom, I have one of those, but with a ton of other things to do inside and out, the ugly bathroom will have to wait along with the ugly laundry.
Hope you like it here
Peace and long life - Jules

Lisa from northern IL! Wow! You sound like you've got some serious DiY jobs lined up for you! I'd take on your outdoor jobs as early as you can in the mornings because of the heat and humidity. Then do your inside projects whenever you can as you've got A/C

I've been a member of SparkPeople since February and have joined several teams, but I thought that this one would be good. I've half-heartedly worked on my flower beds since I moved into my house (9 years ago!), but I need to buckle down and get them cleaned out (I would get one cleaned and mulched but then neglect it so that it would grow back into a jungle). The previous owners planted all sorts of trees, bushes, and flowering things, so I've usually got something blooming all the time. I just need to allow the nice plants in my bed to be seen without the oak saplings, briars, pepper vines, etc.
The lawn is pretty much a lost cause for the year unless we get a lot of rain soon (I live in South Mississippi where it's in the 90's during the day and we're in a drought).
I have a small 'garden' in pots on my back sidewalk: some herbs--basil, rosemary, thyme, three jalapeno plants and one cherry tomato. (I got a late start this year).
As far as DIY indoors, I have two really (I mean Really) ugly bathrooms that need remodelling. Other than painting the walls, I'll have to get professionals to do those. I also want to do some remodelling in my kitchen and can handle some of that myself (painting the walls and refinishing the cabinets). The rest of the house just needs new window treatments and some fresh colors on the walls.
I hope to be able to share lots of hints and tips with other members.
