I have started!!! I swept off both of my porches. Good-bye spider webs!! I trimmed back the mint plants and then (gasp) I repainted the front porch. My teen son said that it looked tons better... then it must. My plan of attack is to work on one list per day starting tomorrow-- gift lists, menus... I am off and running. Now to keep up the momentum. I still have some cleaning to do on the porches but at least the worst clean up is done. I might re-paint the back door as well. Decisions. Decisions.
