Well, it is a new year and it has been a LONG time since I posted! I find I really struggle with motivation, especially in the winter months! Of course, that is when I have the most time! I admit, part of it for me was struggling to figure out how to get pictures off of my phone. I got a new phone so hopefully that will be one problem solved!
I am currently in the middle of a HUGE project! Why do I do this to myself? It seems I decide to do all the stuff at once! I am creating a Household Binder.
I am weeding through tons of websites to figure out what will work for me to include...and as I am searching I am finding daily calendars, daily chore charts, chore ideas for children, devotionals, blog organizers, etc! Of course, I have to decide to print off or save all of that wonderful material! Now I just need to figure out how to organize it all!
I am currently taking everything I printed and putting it in binders. I figure the order doesn't matter quite yet as long as I get it in the right order and in a binder so the kids have LESS of a chance to destroy it! I am doing this in and around dishes and laundry and other never ending chores!
I have these great thoughts, these great plans, and yet the follow through is what just doesn't happen so many times. I also get these plans and forget them just as quickly! So I am going to incorporate and idea section where I am going to record all of my ideas and plans and then see later if they still sound as awesome!
So, since I am on the big project ideas, we also bought some sample paints for our living room and stairway area. This is a HUGE project that we have been avoiding! I LOVE some of the rooms in my house and I think I am going to go through and clean and organize each one as a separate blog post and I will probably do a lot of painting (if I can talk my hubby into that!) so I won't bother you with the details now.
My son got a HUGE train set for Christmas and it ends up with the house constantly messy and I think that might be a big part of my desire to organize right now! Control the chaos I can!
