    After we bought our house, disposing of items left by the previous owner, ripping up carpet that was years old, fresh paint on two floors before settling in. You sit back and discover there are other things that need to be addressed that you didn't notice at first, cracked window panes, stuck windows, missing floor trim, and other miscellaneous tasks and you think 'I'll get to it." Yeah, but when you're working 5 days, with more than eight hours (preparing for work, driving to work, work, driving home from work, dressing down to relax and prepare dinner or eat out. The only time left is the weekend.

    Most of these tasks were accomplished because they were easy to do and not much time needed to complete them. Now it's time to up the anny - the bigger tasks. Where do you find the time?

    When we bought our house which was 20 years old, there was a lot of work to do like the re-wiring of electrical installations, the new water piping inside the house, roof repairs and wall painting and door replacement. My husband took 2 weeks off from work to attend to the housework. He hired 4 workers to do the job that was not finished on time. So when we moved in, there was still a lot of work to do.
