Simpatico: 2011 and Beyond


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

2011 and Beyond

Boy, it has been busy at my house since Christmas. At first we had a nice quiet time at home for Christmas. We opened gifts, had a huge meal, napped, ate more, played with the electronics which had to charge, napped, etc, for 2 days. I believe that every Christmas has been that way since I was born... I love passing on traditions!

Then after Christmas Day was over, we loaded up the car and headed to the wilderness of WV for family time. This is also a tradition. The time between Christmas and New Years is filled with more gifts, stuffing of our gullets with more rich food, then a ski trip to Snowshoe Resort.

Since we arrived back in Kentucky I have been busy doing my (immediate) New Years Resolution of cleaning and organizing my house. I have been culling clothes, emails, old paperwork, decor, anything that doesn't make me happy or has no purpose in my life anymore.

I have to admit the first few cuts were not easy, but then I began to fill so liberated from the changes, the freshness of the rooms, and the clutter gone! This amazing feeling is fueling me to move on with the rest of the house.

I have a lot to do, and oftentimes I feel a bit overwhelmed. Luckily I have made a list of things to do. A list is the easiest way to motivate me. Making a list of things and crossing them off one by one is my means of dealing with any difficult step. I am not known to move ahead without some prodding....Its this Taurus part of me. :) But once I do move, then expect the work to get finished! Its just that first step that hurts the most!

And, the best part of any project is music!! And yes, I made a play list a while back to motivate me into finishing the tasks ahead of me. It is the playlist I always seem to gravitate to when I have something that isn't going to be pleasant. Hey, I need motivation in the worst ways just to wake up!! I hope you enjoy my "happy" playlist as well! :)
