The holidays are over and a new year is beginning.
On the 31st of December, my grandmother died.
(Willa with her great-grandmother)
Simon went back to work today and the kids are playing and I just went over our budget and then entered my breakfast in my food log and I have a feeling this is going to be a good year.
We are still planning on putting the house up for sale this year and slowly our decluttering efforts are changing the way our house looks and runs. During the holidays I decluttered our room. Now, all the clothes I have are ones that fit and that I will and do wear. Doing the closet left enough space for us to move Simon’s dresser into the closet which meant that we could move Wilhelmina’s bed into our room. Not only does it make the room more functional but even if we have one more piece of furniture in the room, it actually looks bigger and even less cluttered.
I don’t make resolutions with the new year but something has clicked in the last few days. Though I have recording our expenses and “budgeting” for years, I realized I was making mistakes. But now, I recognize those mistakes… and when you know better, you do better. With a new view on finances and a big goals for the year I am starting the year off fresh and with plans and I am feeling inspired.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I see, I am not the only one. I lost my grandfather on the 29th, he was 94. What a luck to life so long and to see grow up all grand children and great grand children. I wish you all the best for 2012. hopefully, all lots of blogs 🙂
House up for sale? moving where?
Warm thoughts for you during your difficult time.
Good luck with decluttering (I know it can be quite the task!), your new goals and the house going up for sale!
My deepest sympathies for your loss. Sounds like you had a lot of emotions to go through over the holidays. I’m glad to see you’re starting the year inspired and on a positive note. Here’s to an amazing 2012!
