Very uplifting knowing the "dime saved/dollar earned" formula. Each time I get tired and start to think about slowing down or get depressed, I stop and think how this will increase my net worth and financial independence. This is a very powerful psychological driving force.

With the official ending of the winter season, I thought it would be good to assess how well my plans met up with reality. I usually aim higher than I hit of course, but I do try:


  1. Hang up more stuff – I honestly got very little of this done, as it happened. In part, I blame the miscellaneous other things that ate up some of my time, but in all honesty I can't put a lot of it there. While I moved pictures around to various places and perhaps staged them a bit better than they had been, I just didn't get the job done.

    Giving myself a
    C here, mostly for the other things that needed doing. I can do better.

  2. Finish trim and thresholds around the house – I totally nailed this one, getting trim done everywhere there was trim to put in. Once I got into the "groove" I found myself really enjoying the measuring and cutting work, and the unusual situations posed by some situations (such as the 3 1/2" trim I needed to locate for the closet thresholds) proved stimulating. The last bits of quarter-round went in at the end of April and the house looks way more "finished" than I had thought.

    Very much an
    A here, no question.

  3. Re-floor the computer room -- Well, I thought about it a lot and picked out the wood. Haven't bought it yet, though I did get the room cleaned out at least.

    Can't give myself anything better than a
    D here in all honesty.

  4. Fleshing out the new Shed – I got the new pad done for the propane done and a new light installed, but I didn't actually install any shelving or finish up the exterior under the eaves.

    I think a C is the best I can award myself here.

In my defense I can add that this past winter was wicked in both snow, snow depths, and cold. On the brighter days I could have done shed work it was very cold, and if it wasn't very cold there was a foot of global warming out there. That definitely inclined me to not do as much as I could have.

So I did about as expected. Other than the trim no project was actually completed and that's just sad really. Gotta do better for summer!
