Promises, Promises

My New Year's resolution is to throw away one item per day. And if I'm throwing something away, there's likely an item right next to it that can go too. So, you see, I don't have to purge an entire drawer or closet. I can easily procrastinate on a project like that. But one or two items? There's always a moment for that! And after a year...that could be upwards of 400 items!

We're not a pack-rat sort of bunch here, and we're much more about doing stuff than having stuff. But things accumulate. And living in an apartment rather than a house, space is always on our minds. So perhaps this will keep out the "riff-raff?"

So what's your resolution?

PS: Best Namma Ever! tagged along with a Dear Friend who made the drive up here from St. Louis, so we have company for a few days. Urban Kid 1 already has her busy playing in her room. Urban Kid 2 is about to wake up and will be over the moon!

Year of Joy, here. That's it. Simple, flexible, whatever it's going to take. Year. Of. Stinkin'. Joy. Yup.

Hi--I'm new to your blog. I love the "throwing away" resolution--I've been doing that a lot lately too and it's a great feeling.

My resolutions include goals I've set for working out, painting and flossing daily!

Hah! I'm not making any resolutions, simply because I always break them. So I have a "goal" instead - organization, which covers home, homeschooling, college, finances, everything.

Though I like your idea too... maybe that could be part of my organization!

I'm going to try to be less of a spaz.
