NY Spring Cure: Week One - Weekend

Pin it button big

Welcome back everyone. It's particularly nice to see old names and hear that the Cure is not something you do once in a lifetime, but in big and small ways each season. That's the way it works for me.

This week is the last slow week and then we really get into it, starting with the kitchen in Week 2. Remember: Don't Bite Off Too Much. It is better to feel successful and do less than to feel unsuccessful or overwhelmed from trying too much. You can do more than one Cure!

Also, this time I'd like all of you who have committed to post a comment with links to your latest pics AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK. I don't mind how you do it, but consider this your online commitment to the group and let it simply call it Weekly Update and include your links. You can list your Goals, your To Do List, you Done! List (particularly good for morale) or any thoughts that are flying through your head or your home. EVEN IF YOU FEEL BEHIND or if you've not done much, please stick to updating us once a week. It will help us and help you. Best, Maxwell

This Week's Assignment:
Get your hands on a copy of the book and read through page 69. This gives you all the ground work and gets you started with the interview and short quiz on the health of your home.
