I can’t believe that tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. It literally seems like it was just weeks ago that we brought in 2012. The year went by so fast and life changed in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast, in fact, that I don’t even have any resolutions for the New Year – other than to just enjoy life as it comes!
We’re still recovering from Christmas. If you could see what my house looks like right now, you would probably be appalled. Slash able to relate. Ok, it’s not as terrible as I’m making it sound. And we are slowly getting our house back to some semblance of normal. But we’re not quite there yet. Ok, ok, ok. I’ll share pictures. But only if you promise not to judge!
And I’ll apologize in advance. Messy spaces get a cell phone camera. Not a fancy one…
My laundry room is looking less and less like a war path! Only because I’ve done no less than six loads of laundry since last night. Having a day off today is my laundry miracle. Oh wait…mommies don’t get days off! Good thing life with a newborn teaches you to multitask really well…
I kid you not, I vacuumed and washed our entryway floors before I made dinner last night. Eighteen hours later and they’re dirty again. This is what happens in winter in Minnesota. Slash when you have white floors in your entryway. And when your hubby likes tinkering with things in the garage on the weekends. Aka a hubby that’s in and out of the house five times an hour…love you honey!
I can’t even really comment on this. Except to say that my office really did used to be clean. Before I had a child.
Our guest bedroom has turned into the sorting grounds for anything and everything lately. Target trips, Christmas gifts, baby clothes, work clothes, returns…the room is a dumping ground for anything that I need to go through. Aka baby and daddy are having play time this afternoon while mommy gets this place cleaned up…
Hey, at least my living room isn’t a total disaster area! Oh – and that activity gym? It’s a baby occupying godsend.
Christmas is my favorite time of year. But it’s definitely not my most productive time of year…obviously. Mama needs to get her rear in gear so that we have a clean, organized house for the new year!
Please tell me your house is as messy as mine is after the holidays!
