White is painted. It took a couple days because I had to let the paint dry in between colors.
No New Year's Resolutions. Only New Year's . . . Thoughts. In my head I know things that need to be changed, things I need to work on, things I need to learn, things I need to keep doing. I haven't written them down, and I don't know if it would help or hinder. Probably help since I love lists.
Yes, this is February, but it's still the beginning of the year. I can still be thinking about the year ahead and what I want from it.
Grow. or Learn.
Those are the words I picked for my year. I've never picked a word before, and these mean the same thing to me right now and are just what I need.
I need to grow/learn in my organizational skills. Which are at zero.
I need to grow/learn in my homemaking skills. Or, to put it another way, my making our house a home skills.
I need to grow/learn in my "Do not be a packrat" skills.
I need to grow/learn in my wifely/mothering skills. I need to learn to be present and take joy in those things.
These aren't resolutions, just sort of vague, and yet solid, things that I want to grow in and learn to be better at. I THINK I've been doing a little better. I've organized, gone through stuff, gotten rid of stuff, and cleaned. (Those things could also be attributed to nesting.)
So, what are your resolutions or words for 2014?
