I always come home inspired from our time away. I come home with plans to stop procrastinating, to be more organized, keep the washing and ironing up to date, lose weight, eat better, spend more time with our boys, keep on top of the paper work and bills, have a regular quiet and prayer time, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah, whatever.... In the past I have not been successful with my ideas and plans and resolutions.
This year I've come home with the same plans and dreams. But hopefully things will be different and won't end up being 'whatever' This year I've made up a big long list of things I want to do around our home to get it ship-shape; whether that means re-organizing or finishing off things, or repainting.
I'm going to work on the list in either a weekly approach (there are about 50 things on my list) or a monthly approach (12 different areas in our home).
I went to Target earlier today and bought some baskets that I found there. They were 40% off so I bought all they had in that particular range - 5 small, 2 medium and 1 large basket. I'll be putting them in my pantry to hold things like lunch boxes, drink bottles, medicines, etc... So I guess organizing the pantry will be the first thing I cross off on my list.
Now as to the other things on my resolutions list (losing weight, eating better, having a daily quiet time and spending more time with the boys), I will need a different approach too if they are things I am going to achieve... Now I just have to figure out how to do them successfully too!
