I am a little flabbergasted that it is already 2013. I don’t quite know what happened to 2012, it seemed to pass me by so fast I’m not entirely sure what happened! With each new year, I realize how short they seem to be, and I always have a renewed spirit to accomplish all those things on my list to live my best life, and help my family do the same.
This year I plan to spend a lot of time improving on what I started last year. I started a new way to organize my day last year, and it works really well…when I use it. I had been attempting to use this sheet in the morning, when I was able to wake up before my kids for my quiet time. However, I think that a better idea is to fill out this sheet the night before. My mind works a little better in the evening, and I think having this page already filled out will make it a bit easier to manage my mornings.
I am also in the process of making my rooms work for our family. I talked a little about this on Tuesday, since I spent some time re-organizing our school room. I’m not sure that I will ever be able to leave everything in my home in the same place, but I am trying to find a better use of our space, especially with the lack of closets in the entire house. I hope to spend some time going through Tsh’s book Organized Simplicity, which I did last year at the beginning of the year as well. It seems like each year I read this book, I get a little closer to the simple home that I am seeking. I always have stuff to get rid of, and I always like to do a large deep clean. Tsh takes each room day by day, but with littles running around and homeschooling to do, I tend to work on rooms for weeks at a time. Not the most pleasant thing to have to live with while I am organizing, but when it is done, I feel so much better!
I haven’t really made a list of resolutions for this year, which is something I almost always do right after Christmas. I think the fact that Christmas was on a Tuesday this year seemed to throw me off a bit. I hope to spend some time this weekend really putting my thoughts down on paper, and evaluating how I want my year to go.
What about you? Do you have any resolutions this year? Any big plans?
