The Most Excessive Small RV Ever?

Whenever I pass by a Home Depot in the RV, one thought pops into my mind: are there any projects I can do? I love working on my RV. Since the last update, where I put in maple and marble floors and improved the kitchen, I've done quite a bit more. Following is a list of some of the improvements, along with notes to help you if you decide to do something similar. Check out the video walkthrough first:

Super Classy Kitchen and Countertops

Let me attempt to fend off the inevitable criticism that this upgrade is excessive by saying this: I agree with you. I have a tendency to go overboard when it's only marginally more expensive, especially if it's going to be fun. This is a really good example of this.

On maggie's musings

Well, it is my second day of blogging. I have eaten 3 servings of fruit and veggies already and it is only 1:40. I also did my yoga poses. The kid comes back at 5, so I will see if I can pour some veggies into him at supper time. I slept about 9 hours, so all is good as far as the new habits go.

I really want to up my productivity over the next week until school starts again--I have a list of things that should get done. But I do love puttering around and I am not sure if I can do both. Puttering is work, but it is "in the moment." It is about little jobs that come up as you go along and it is open to being sidetracked at any time. The list I am trying to accomplish is systematic--things need to be checked off.

So, for example, today I split some firewood and kindling and brought it into the house (on the list). When I was finished, I felt like staying outside. So I covered my veggie beds (darn cats getting into them), cleaned up the firewood area, and wandered around a bit. I probably could have knocked off 3 things on my list during that time, but the puttering was time well spent.

So my love of systematic productivity is in contrast to my belief in the value of puttering. Can I hold onto both ideas at once? Clinging to ideas, and judging them as good or bad, is a bit silly in a way.
