It has been a while since I last posted. I have thought about closing down this blog, but there are so many memories on here that I want to keep open for family and friends who actually read it. Yes, it will remain alive in 2015, but I know it is on life support right now. So I am going to try to post more often. Not everyday, but several times per week. My first post of the new year is, of course, like many other bloggers – a post about the new year.
I no longer make New Years Resolutions. I stopped doing that about four years or so ago. Instead, I make project lists, as I like to call them. I am someone who likes to tackle projects and challenges, instead of strict rules, which is how I feel about resolutions.
So for 2015, there are several “projects” I want to tackle. Here are a few:
* Clean my house. Sounds funny, I know. But I mean deep clean my house. I plan to tackle this slowly, taking it one room at a time. This may take me a while, but I will get it done. Spent some time on Pinterest and found some great ideas of some products that you can make at home that work better than the stuff at the store.
* Get my cabinets and closets organized and get rid of “stuff”. This, too, will take me some time, but I know how good it feels to clean out an area in my house, even if it is just a drawer. Again, thanks to Pinterest, I have some good ideas which will not only help to get organized, but STAY organized.
* Clean and organize the garage. Ugh. This is not one of the projects I am excited about. This project will take some extra support from the family, but come spring time, it will happen. Trust me. All I have to do is threaten to throw away everything that I think isn’t useful or worth anything and they all come running. . .
* Drink more water. Who am I kidding. It should read Drink Water Period. I hate drinking water. But I am going to slowly ease into it. I finished a 20 oz bottle yesterday and plan to do the same every day. It’s not much, but it is at least 20 more oz of water than I was drinking before. It is a good start.
* Exercise regularly. I hate that this sounds like a resolution. But it is hard to argue against all the good things exercise does for your body, including your brain. I just have to set my mind on this. It is important for my health.
* Write notes to people, often. I received some really cool note cards for Christmas that I am eager to put to good use. I know how I feel when someone writes me a note or card. I want to be able to share that feeling with others.
I think I will stop here. Those are enough projects to keep me busy in 2015, in addition to all the balls that I juggle in everyday life.
If you are reading this, thanks for sticking with me on this almost-dead-blog. If you would like to share some of your 2015 projects, I would love to hear about them.
Happy Friday –
