Christmas is officially over.
I am itching to put away my decorations. As much as I do like them, now I want them gone. I have never been one of those people to keep their decorations up longer so that Christmas melded into Valentines Day.
I have new toys that I want to start using, a wonderful sander for finishing some painting projects I have waiting in the garage. A new buffet for the basement family room. I want to get back into the sewing grove and use up some of the wonderful fabric I have waiting for me.
One such new toy is this wonderful laptop I am writing this post with. Mr. M. was my darling Santa this year and I am enjoying it so. I am also sitting in his Christmas gift that my sisters and I bought him, a wonderful massage office chair.
Oh honey, you forgot to take your chair to work. I think I forgot to remind him.
As we get ready for the New Year, I always think of things I would like to do differently. Not so much as resolutions but changes. I try to make them fun, such as painting the basement or any other room in the house that may need to be freshened up. Doing more creative projects with the kids. More visits to the Science Museum, Zoo, Aquarium and other local attractions. Actually planning a vacation for our family.
I also try to be more organized each year, I buy the extra buckets and bins for storage and I label them and put them in their spot.
Then I forget where they are and I tend to not be able to find what I need, and end up getting duplicates. So, I try, each year to do better, only now I do baby steps because there is just to much mess involved with a creative mind.
Oh and that other thing I try each year.
I think this year a treadmill might help.

So, what about you?
Did you get any fun toys for Christmas?
Are you a LEAVE it out kind of person?
Any good resolutions for the next year?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
