Clear out the Christmas presents that were just off base, and any stuff that was replaced or duplicated over Christmas, as well as going through the kids and my clothes again. I can hardly walk through the basement, because "stuff" just keeps ending up there.
Slightly off topic, but since it was talked about earlier in the thread I'm going to share anyway...
I finally got my new tattoo yesterday! I love it.
: It makes me really happy. Pictures here
I love it, it looks so good!
I've been doing some de-cluttering lately too, as I also always have a box going. We donated a few boxes a couple of weeks ago and now are ready for another run.
Lately, I've just been trying to get my life orderly. I've been cooking tons lately. Tonight I'm doing Asian Stir Fry with rice noodles and chicken. I am on this kick to be really healthy because of my migraines. So I'm trying to eat more organic and cook from scratch.
I've been staying on top of laundry!!! I have to do one load a day or more depending on the week.
I still use my HMB but found that I"m not writing in it anymore. The dry erase marker thing wasn't working for me. Until I get a working printer, I am not able to really "use" my checklists for chores and projects. Instead I'm just doing it in my head, referencing the list the reminders. I'm still getting everything done, it's just not written down. Though, the rest of the HMB has been tremendously helpful to us. Having important #'s/addresses, stamps/envelopes, as wells as financial stuff all in one place is great. It's been keeping me way more organized.
Hmmm...what else? Well I've also redecorated recently, more of a tropical/garden green theme. Love it
: I usually redecorate once or twice a year to keep things fresh around here. What I mean by redecorate, is, since I mostly have neutral everything (couch, linens, furniture), I just add splashes of color with some valances, shower curtain, shams (instead of a whole new set I have a beige quilt, cream sheets and then I add colorful shams on top to go with the current theme), throw pillows, and throws. Of course my greenery (houseplants) add to the tropical garden them around here
Speaking of, got a new one today, a kalanchoe I think. It's gorgeous.
Well, that's all I have for now, how is everyone doing? Settled down after the holidays?
Question: Do you all do spring cleaning? or spring decorating?
