d. febreze the stairs - they stink for some reason
e. caulk shower stall & fixtures
f. re-seal the kitchen counter

h. clean the holy heck out of the place
i. pray nothing else needs to be done

2. Clean up the "new" house
a. hack out more overgrown and semi-dead vegetation
b. rent a dumpster for dead vegetation & former tenants' junk (anybody need some marijuana pipes?)
c. wash the walls (yeah, ick)

5. Catch up on all my d*mned sewing projects

e. stuffed animals for X-mas gifts (stripey giraffes & elephants, hooray!)

b. find a used bike for me (D is on his own)
