I won’t wait until New Year to do this as one of my New Year’s resolutions because that thing is getting old to me.I’ve been side-tracked all the time to do things like this. There are days I’m uber motivated and there are times that I just want to be a bum. Well,it starts when I’m really really tired from work and waking up 4 am and can’t take a nap (even catnap) because our youngest daughter is a fighter but when she’s already napping it’s about time to wake her up then we will pick up her sister from school.
Maybe I give a lot of excuses. I just want to feel relaxed right after I work but usually,there are clothes to be folded. I don’t trust this task to my husband. My bad. I’ve been writing everyday to my notebook “my to-do-list” and I’m so happy to cross out some of them. Lately,out of 5 tasks for a day,I only crossing out 1 and this is when I feel I don’t do much. I feel I’m wasting my time.I’ve been hanging up my promise to organize the kitchen cabinets and drawers but the only improvement happened was to clear the kitchen counter top. It’s nice to get done something but there’s a little voice inside me saying, I should’ve done more like organizing one drawer,at least.
I’ve done cleaning/organizing each kitchen cabinets and drawers before and it took me all day to finish everything. From sorting to washing utensils all over again. It’s a lot. Or maybe,we have so much stuffs that we should get rid of. But with my dresser,it’s getting better. Our donation bin is getting full again. I can’t believe how much clothes I have. I started with my clothes for home use,like for example,my pajamas,sweat shirts and sweat pants,I got ten of them to get rid of. Wait until I go through my husband’s dresser. His socks will drive me crazy!
The girls’ clothes are in control. We donated few months ago including toys that they don’t play anymore and never played. Still,there are few more toys that are ready to be donated. It’s also my fault for not letting go some of it. I always say,they will play these nice toys one of these days but they never did.
I will also work on organizing our book shelves and what books should I keep and what should not. It will be hard for me to get rid some of them because I love to read but the problem is,I don’t *have* time to start or finish all of them. Some have been sitting there for a year that I read unfinished.But for sure, I’m going to keep a lot of them. I have my favorite books that I’ve been wanting for a long time and they are worth to keep.
Also,I will start organizing pictures. I have an obsession of using my camera every day. I take pictures for this blog or just to take a picture of our girls.
But I can do all these when I’m all rested up.I’m in the mood and when the girls are willing to help me (which I’m sure they will) instead of making a mess.
Come on 2015! Our home will be much organized before you arrive!
