Growing to-do list

The original to-do list for my house included:

* New side door, window, and shingles for my garage
* Paint the picket fence
* Paint the foundation of the house
* Put up a fence to keep puppy out of my flower bed --- no longer needed
* Rehang siding on garage that the recent storms ripped off

* Get basement walls inspected. Paint walls
* Re-grout bathroom floor tiles
* Add trim to baseboards in all rooms
* Once puppy is completly housebroken, get new floor in kitchen installed
* Add crownmolding to the bedrooms and dining room

Here's what I've actually done so far:
* Painted the paito
* Painted the railings on the front porch
* Started to paint the white picket fence by hand and then decided that I need to get a sprayer since after an hour all I had painted was one post and the gate. ;)
* Rehung siding on garage and patio that the storms ripped off
* Filled in holes in backyard dug by Mac
* Planted grass seed
* Dug up cedar bushes and trees from front flowerbed
* Planted new bushes/plants in front flowerbed
* Fixed the sagging gutter on my garage
* Weeded out the section of river rocks by my driveway and put down step stones

* Got basement walls inspected --- still deciding what to do about them
* Got bathroom floor inspected (2 more appointments next week)
* Set up appointment to get sump pump discharge hose taken care of (will be fixed next week)
* Purchased new floor tiles for kitchen --- now, to install them!
* Painted guest room
* Made padded headboard for guest room
* Bought new coffee table (LOVE IT) --- now I need to get a bakers rack for the dining room and I'll be all set
* Reorganized papers/books in home office
