I'm on Christmas break and loving it! This is a very THANKFUL THANKFUL Christmas season as we have not had a parent in the hospital at this holiday time for 3 years. We truly count our blessings for that. My Momma was in the hospital last year from Dec. 12 to Jan. 3. It was a very touch and go time and we are so grateful she is doing so well this year.
That being said.....I'm on a mission. I'm a purgeaholic....and it feels wonderful! I bought the DVD by Peter Walsh...It's All Too Much! If you have a chance to read it or view it...it will really get you motivated. My trash cans fill at a rapid pace.
My mission is two fold. I have a new granddaughter coming in about 6 weeks and I've got to get things done before she gets here. We are having fun helping Lace and Blake get ready for her. The nursery is going to be darling. Papa Coach is going to help finish painting and odds and ends while Mommy To Be and I finish sewing, etc. on Monday.
Then in January we have new carpet for the entire upstairs coming as well as Grandpa and I are getting NEW BEDROOM FURNITURE! We have never had a matching set so we ordered it from Nebraska Furniture Mart (Do you just love that place???) and it will be delivered after carpet. It was our Christmas to each other.
I've also been digging out our baby furniture from our babies to clean and polish to put up. How fun is that going to be?
Purging is good for the soul! It lightens me! With age comes SIMPLIFICATION.....I'm NOT a hoarder....every moving body in my house might say I am...... but I'm not! I do have too much "stuff" but I don't buy things in bulk and just store them.
I'm a "hang on to it....I might need it" type. But I'm really getting better! I have 5 days of vacation left and so I'm using my time wisely! We have had beautiful weather in Kansas for winter and we are loving it! Sunny days, very mild temps. So nice and enjoyable!
I'll be back soon with a Christmas recap!
How was your Christmas and are you getting some time off?
Getting to do a Healthy Relaxing Bible study while I'm off....
Here is my verse for today:
2 Peter 1 :5-6 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
