As I had previously mentioned, I am soo happy for 2012. I was ready for 2011 to end. There is something about a fresh start of a new year. New hopes, new friends, new thoughts, new prayers, new dreams, new everything. I am more than ready for it all!!
Instead of making new year resolutions, I have decided against it. I have decided to take on 2012 with a fresh new perspective. I am going to work on letting go of the things I cannot change and take charge of the things I can. This alone is going to be very difficult. New year - new start. The great thing is M is right on board with me!
Sooo we spent New Year's Eve over at N & K's - which was nice and low key. I haven't been feeling the best, but managed to stay up till the New Year. We came home shortly after midnight, and M and I laid in bed and discussed how to tackle 2012. Have I ever mentioned how much I love my man!? He some how finds the exact words that meet my thoughts, even if I can't bring them to language.
Not very flattering... but...
Sunday morning, we tackled the upstairs. My craft/sewing room was overhauled, the closets upstairs were overhauled. It felt great to declutter. I don't think M wanted to stop the process because I was in a very giving mood. We managed to donate one MASSIVE costco bag of clothes, purses, household linens, etc. to Goodwill. It felt soo good! We rearranged the craft room and brought up a shelving unit from the garage.
We also switched some pieces around in the mudroom and now it looks a little more complete and welcoming.
We set up the new wall unit cabinet for the new TV that will hopefully come tomorrow.
I spent waaay too long on ordering a calender from Costco last night, but I can't wait to get it!! It is filled with pictures and inspirational quotes. I am also going to start getting pictures printed soon for the photo wall! I think I have enough frames to get it started now!
Welcome 2012!! Let's make the best of it!
