    I found a great way to motivate myself to get the house done-- invite 20 or so friends over!  LOL!  :D   I guess I could make this a challenge-- if you'd like to set certain tasks to be done by the Superbowl (Feb 6th), you can join me.  :) We've decided to have a Superbowl Party... after all...
