Meanwhile, I am still trying to make headway on our New Year's Resolution: A list of things to fix around the house entitled Works Great in 2008. Every week this list gets longer, but I naively think it's still conceivably possible to finish it. This week I FINALLY replaced the light bulbs on our exterior spotlights. It's hard to believe that replacing light bulbs could be a new year's resolution, but if it requires a ladder and a screwdriver, then yes, it qualifies as a real project.
