As a family we got the kids room, cleaned and decluttered, started on master bedroom, cleaned out closets, had the main floor nice and tidy for new years. took a truck load of donations to savers. i have already started on a new box of donations to start off the new year.
I've already started reorganizing also. My living room has been bombarded by exercise equipment that honestly I haven't been using. The basement was the bf's computer space. My computer has been at the dining room table for 2 years since my surgery and I quit smoking (can't sit in the same room with him chain smoking on the computer). We've so far moved all of the equipment to the basement and I bought another TV to increase the chances of my actually going down there and using it. His office has been moved to an empty room upstairs and as soon as my wireless adapter comes in we will be moving my office to another room upstairs. I can't wait until this is done! I will have my living room back and my basement will look like a real gym!! It was driving me crazy how cluttered the living room and dining room were looking.
House is cleaned up from Christmas! But the BEST news is that I cleaned out my pantry of junk food BEFORE Christmas! That's right! I stopped eating ALL sugar AND starched one week before Christmas! My favorite part of the whole deal is that I didn't crack or fall! I did it!!!! It's amazing when you make up your mind that you're going to do something and you stick with it. It's been hard, and yes, I sat there and watched people enjoy some delicious food for Christmas, but I just kept telling myself that skinny and healthy tasted better!

I've already been doing this throughout the year BUT I haven't scrapbooked all year long. Today I'm doing a marathon of scrapbooking AFTER I take a walk to get some fresh air and get my body moving. It was sedentary all weekend long and it's crying! lol...
Then my utility and my bedroom need that massive cleaning so those are the rooms I'll be working in this week! We're also getting ready to go to Idaho this upcoming weekend so plenty of things for me to do this week!
