Revisiting "the list"

I was talking with a girlfriend last night about things she wanted to do to her house in the next few years... which leads me to revisiting our own list. We have a "new" one now -- conveniently stuck to the refrigerator -- but here's our original (with updates)

Working on our list!
For a refresher, here are the things still on our home "to do" list:

Paint office -- done
Paint laundry room -- done
Paint pantry -- done

Paint master closets -- done
Paint master bath
Paint guest bath -- finally complete!
Replace fixtures in guest bath -- still looking...
Replace mirror in guest bath -- priced, but not done
Replace toilet seat in guest bath
Replace shower head in guest bath -- ordered and in the mail!
Figure out what's wrong with guest toilet (done) and fix it (not done) as a side note, this mysteriously fixed itself after we purchased the repair kit. i guess we won't be needing to repair it now! so, done!

Fix drains in guest bath
Paint outdoor arch (done!!)
Replace frilly curtains on front door--done!!

Replace light in kitchen
Add mechanical arm to iron gate -- DONE!
Repair grout in kitchen -- instead, we are removing the tile and having granite and new appliances installed. this one item now requires it's own list!
Caulk cracks near roof -- done
Remove huge ugly Sago palm -- finally done!!
Clean dryer vent --done!

Replace ridge vents
Remove attic vent and patch hole (we just fixed it)
Remove tree close to house (we are trimming it and not removing it)
Plant trees to replace all of the stuff we're removing :) (done!! we planted two!)
Paint hallway -- done


Seeing our original list makes me feel like we've done quite a bit... although there have been many more lists :)

Over the next two months, my goal is to complete the kitchen remodel (counters and appliance conversions) and complete the nursery. These will be our biggest projects to date (as well as the most expensive) but if we don't do them now, will we ever?

Your list fills me with awe. I can't get it together to hang up pictures, let alone anything of this magnitude.
