Are you one to make New Year’s Resolutions? I admit I’m not big on them. I stopped several years ago because I hated the let-down when I realized mid-January I wasn’t following through. I’m not a big goals person either, which sounds so weird and lazy to say out loud.
I’m more of a list maker, so I guess maybe I like to live more day to day. That at least sounds nicer, doesn’t it? I want to embrace the now. I’m blogging and working now because its something that I enjoy now. But where will this take me in 10 years? What’s my long term business plan? I have no idea. And I’m okay with that at this point in my life.
But every year around this time, after sweeping up the Christmas tree remnants and packing up the ornaments, I get this intense desire to get my house in order. I want to clean, I want to organize. I want to get it all straightened out. There have just been some nagging tasks that I’d really like to get to, but for whatever reason, I just haven’t. They’ve bugged me for a while and a few of them I could knock out in an hour or two. So why haven’t I done something about them? Can anyone relate?
So now that I have this blog, this space to talk about all things house-related, I figured its a good a time to make some goals for this year in my home.
1. Kitchen Hardware
To start off, I’ve got a couple of spots in the kitchen where the cabinet hardware does not line up with the original holes. So we screwed in the top but not the bottom. Drives.me.nuts. Apparently its an easy fix. Why haven’t we done it? Oh… life, how it gets in the way sometimes.
2. The Junk Drawers
I think its safe to say that these have gotten slightly out of control. Oh and there’s a whole junk closet too that I chose not to take a picture of for your sake. You’re welcome.
3. The Gallery Wall
Its been months since I hung up this gallery wall. I’ve still got a few blank spaces as you can see. I recently picked up a few new prints, but I need to get some mattes cut and its just going to take some figuring out. So, that’s a goal.
4. The Bathroom
We have decided this will be the year of the master bathroom reno. And not only that but also changing the flooring in our other two bathrooms as well. We are still not exactly sure what’s going to happen in here and how it will end up, but I’m definitely planning & dreaming.
So how about you? Got any house goals for the year? Does January make you want to start fresh and get some organizing done? Do you have any small nagging tasks that just need some attention? I’d love to hear from you!
