Oh, did I mention that I hosted a fabulous New Year's Eve Party ?!
|Yeah, the party turned out amazing.|
But enough of me wallowing in my mess. There are a lot of good things that come with the beginning of a new year. First off, there is post-holiday sales! Half of the New Year's Eve food was 50% during a huge day-after-Christmas sale of Holiday merchandise. Plus, I was able to purchase proper storage for our decorations along with ornaments for next year. And all of it was at least 50% off.
|I love Target sales <3|
Speaking of the new storage we attained, I use the days after Festivus as an excuse to organize & clean out the house. Thanks to our family, we have some great gifts that we need to make room for. And with items like new clothes, we now have a reason to go through our closet & see what older clothes we don't wear. While I am not attempting another yard sale, we will donate whatever we find.
At least I can say with my need to purge, the husband doesn't have to worry about me becoming a hoarder...
Another perk to the days after the Holidays: I can finally get back to every-day life. Don't get me wrong. I love Festivus. But after more than a month, I am ready to get back to work & return to a "regular" schedule. I need to get back to working out, cooking & all the fun things I was able to do any day after work. It's time to get to those New Year resolutions!
So there's my first blog post of the year: fears of the mess in my house & the readiness to get back into the swing of things. That sounds about right. Plus the "How was your Holiday?" small talk is getting redundant.
