Baby Space Update

Yes, I let him use power tools.
I originally posted THIS LIST on my other blog... it was our to do list for Baby P's room.
Since that was posted about a month and a half ago the list has been expanded considerably to contain more details, but also quite a few things have been crossed off.
So I thought (maybe just for my own encouragement) I would share with you what the list looks like now. Document the progress. Comments in italics.

Baby Space To Do List:
1. Clean out basement to make space for 'guest bedroom' Can I get double points for this since it technically happened twice seeing as how we had to reclean and rearrange everything after we got water in the basement?
2. Move guest bed to basement
3. Remove all clothes and items from guest bedroom closet and dresser
