2014 A New Year & New Beginnings

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted. August...geez :) So much has happened since then. I'm sitting here trying to sort it all out and my head is pounding. I can't remember what happened yesterday much less many yesterdays ago. Oh well. It's a new year and I feel like a need a new beginning. So, here it is. My new beginning.

For 2014, I've decided that I am going to be more organized. With hubby, kids, work, home, etc. I have to be. So, I've started my control journal. Yes, I will take back control of my home! I even shined my sink! (It looks awesome btw)

I have a lot of things that need to change and while I'm taking some baby steps, I feel like I need to make some large leaps as well.

Today I shined my kitchen sink. Yay!! I also cleaned the downstairs bathroom and got rid of all the junk that was in the bathroom vanity. Why did I have a bag of empty toilet paper rolls under there? Yeah, I'm a preschool teacher, but no one needs that many for crafts. There was also a bunch of plastic grocery bags. What was that all about? I don't even remember putting them there. So much better now. All I need is a small basket to keep a few supplies in and it's all done. I really want to paint in there. It needs it so badly. It's terrible. If I can get the color ok'd by the landlord, then maybe the hubby will let me do it because it will make me happy :) It's worth a try.

Tomorrow my mission is to wash all the bed sheets and have the kids clean their rooms and vacuum. Then, I'll clean my bathroom (yuck) and my room. It's not too bad. I tackled my closet a couple of weeks ago and it's so much better now. I'm not going to touch my husband's closet. He can take care of that himself. Then it's on to the kitchen and all the piles. I hate piles, but they always seem to accumulate. I've got to think of a better way of dealing with all that stuff. Then, if I have time, I'm purging all my kids toys and stuff. It's out of control. I didn't realize that they had so much stuff. It's crazy and it's driving me crazy. So, it has to go. I think I'm going to divide things up and give each kid a section. That will be where their stuff goes and they will have to maintain it. Sounds good. So we will see how it will go when I put it into action.

That's it for now. I'll write more later...
