Last year I made a list I posted on the fridge, hoping it would be a good reminder. I only kept about a quarter of them. So while I still intend on making a list this year, I want this one to be short and sweet. Instead of 10 things I want to change, maybe keep it to three. More realistic.
No doubt most of you caught that I said I still intend on making the list. I haven't yet. Maybe not the best start. I have been busy taking care of some pretty sick little ones the past two weeks. But I have a mental list started, including getting our homeschool station organized.
Ever since I started feeling sick with this pregnancy, I have been lazy about keeping all our papers organized. Since I found out about two weeks into the school year, there is a lot of loose paperwork.
Today, while we sat doing our work for the day, I grabbed the mounting pile nagging me and got them organized and stashed. In under one hour. What else can I do around here in under an hour? I like to clean, but I don't enjoy organizing spaces like the laundry room and medicine cabinet. I wish I could hire someone to come in and do it for me. That would be awesome. But not in the budget. What we can afford is a trip to Ikea for some storage solutions. Maybe that would make the whole process more exciting. Maybe...
For now I deeply appreciate this one small chore I can cross off the list.
Happy New Year!
