Keep the grass, fill the pool.
I've done a lot of stuff over the last year or so. The wood floors I mentioned, painted the whole house, insulated the bedrooms for sound (1.75" solid core doors = big help; wall insulation = little), added some hvac ducting, added some insulation in the attic, some landscaping, removed a tree/new carpet (paid someone to do these), put down about a pallet and a half of sod, built a garden shed in the back, probably some other stuff I can't remember.
My immediate next project is to cover the crummy concrete deck in the back with some haughty brick pavers and lay a path from the porch to the shed. I'm too cheap to rent a wet saw or a power tamper, so it's going to be a lot of fun.
Then I'm going to remodel the garage, insulate it and put a mini-split in there. No more sweating for me.
Might take a break after that.
