Fresh Start

Don't we all look forward to a fresh start? Now that it's 2009, I'm sure we want to face the new year some semblance of order. The chaos of the holidays still has me reeling. Yes, I know it's mid-January, better get my b*tt moving. Chop chop.

I've been taking time to revamp certain areas of the house. Hubby and I started with my "new" kitchen. (It was known as the maid's quarters in another life.) Hubby gave away the double deck bed to make room for the stove, other kitchen appliances and makeshift pantry. So far it's been a week and I'm absolutely loving it. But it still needs tweaking and a few homey touches here and there. And probably a center island if I could fit one in it!

Another area that needs a new look is the kids' bedroom. I just can't seem to get past the amount of toys that they've accumulated just this past Christmas. Although there are a few gifts that I've kept for recycling purposes, their toys are just too many to sort! To keep all of it down to an organized chaos, I told Kuya and Kowi to put their toys into a garbage bag and put them in the attic. I will get to them it--eventually.

Well, in the spirit of fresh starts, here's hoping that 2009 brighter than what is anticipated. Happy new year, everyone. (Yes, even in mid-January).

I'm wanting to 'revamp' the house, too, as part of my year plans but I just can't seem to get on with it. Hopefully, soon enough.

Goodluck with yours. ;)
