Mission Organization...

Thanks to my husband winning a cute mini laptop at work, I am happy to be back to blogging!

(I want my house to be this organized!!!) With school starting just around the corner for my girls I HAVE GOT to get my house organized! I am the type of person who LOVES to organize, but I have a hard time keeping things that way. My goal is to get all of the projects on my to-do list done in the next couple months, starting with organizing my home. Doesn't it seem like summer ends, school starts, and then BAM before you know it is Christmas? At least it feels that way to me! This year I would like to go into the holidays with a clean organized house.

Our home (for now)
We are renting right now and I am finding it really hard to get motivated with house projects since it isn't "my" home and especially knowing that we will only be here for a little while longer. Our last home was our DREAM home, we had it built and originally had planned to stay there for a very long time! Well things change, my husband was laid off from his job and we had no choice but to move. For the past year I have done my fair share of complaining about this and being sad about having to sell our home. BUT, I have decided NO MORE, I need to be grateful for what I have, I am lucky to have a darling home to live in for the time being and I am even more lucky to have a darling family to live there with me:). I am grateful that my husband was able to find a great new job so quickly, it has been a huge transition going from living in the mid-west to life back in Utah, but I am FINALLY realizing that if I will change my attitude about it then I will ultimately be so much happier.

SO, it's time to turn my house into my HOME,

Even if it is only temporary!

I feel like my to do list is a mile long, but if I take it one day at a time I KNOW I can get it done.

That sounds pretty much just like my "to do" list for when school starts. I will have all three in school and am finally going to have a really clean and organized house!

Nothing is more relaxing and attractive than being able to look out of your clean windows and have the candles going and some wine.
