Ah, another year, another wreath to add to my collection. [Insert giddy squeal] I rarely say it but this photo doesn’t do it justice. It’s sparkly, glittery gold/silver and fabulous (something else I don’t say often)—kinda like the type of nail polish you’d wear on NYE if you didn’t stay in drinking wine through a crazy straw and Redboxing (yup, that’s a verb) it up! Not that I know anyone who did that…
Last year I resolved to start running and I’ve been consistently running 25-40 minutes four to five days a week this whole year (shin splints and all). This year my resolution is to keep the house cleaner. Yup, just one resolution. That’s how I do it. Keep it simple so I don’t forget come February. And if this past year taught me anything it’s that habits are formed through habituation. Erm, let me rephrase. You do something enough and it becomes a no-brainer.
When The Hubs came home to visit one of the first things he did was to take a broom to the entry way. It was embarrassing! Not because it was dirty (puhlease!) but because I had spent about a full two days prior cleaning the house. I must be doing something wrong. I’m pretty good at purging, tidying up, and organizing but I don’t spend a lot of effort cleaning. It’s more a matter of economics rather than cleanliness. I enjoy cleanliness far less than the amount of time it would entail would dictate. In other words, time enjoyed not cleaning > enjoying a clean home.
I’m wishing you all the blessings I bestow upon all my friends for the year to come: new adventures, good health, plenty of happiness, and peace always.
Do you have any home related resolutions for the year to come?
