WhaT to Do ?? Party payback I am returning from my freshman year of school and am living at my families lakehouse by myself. My rest of my family moved to CT as my dad has job changed, but they kept our lakehouse in MI. Anyway, I had a very large party (probably over 100 people) at my lakehouse and my parents found out via my neighbors. (Even though this party had a lot of people it was very organized for the situation) we had a few people doing security watching parking and running the door. You had to get a wristband to get in. However parties were not on the approved list of things that I could at the lake, especially of this magnitude, and anyway they got very very angry, as one might exspect. I got a fair amount of punishment, but I still feel very bad, and I was wondering if anyone would have any ideas of what I could do as projects to help improve the house a bit for when they come back for a few weeks over the summer. The house is right on a lake and I was going to clean up the sand on the beach area, but I was hoping to have a couple of other ideas. The house is decorated very poorly, my mom is a good decorator but she hasn't had time to redecorate it after from the people we bought it from. It is currently decorated in like an old country theme with lots of little woodin figures all around the house. It looks like a grandma and grandpa's cottage, and I was hoping to improve something. The lowest basement level is a fairly small unfinished room, probably 16 by 18. The only thing I have done so far, was I built a bar for my party which isn't that bad looking considering the rest of the house, but I am need of other ideas. The lawn is fairly plain, although there are flowers and stuff around the front of the house. The only thing is that I have very limited budget, I make 8.50 an hour and work full time with overtime sometimes. I also have to pay for some bills which comes to like 200 a month and food is like 80 a week.
