Can anyone else besides me NOT believe it's already '08??
There's a song by Kenny Chesney called "Don't Blink" that comes to my mind a lot. The chorus:
"Don't blink, cuz just like that
You're 6 years old and you take a nap
And you wake up & you're 25
Then your high-school sweetheart becomes your wife.".
I sooo feel that way! I feel like just yesterday I married my sweet husband, and I woke up this morning with 4 kids!!! Where did the last decade go???
As have most of you, I've made some resolutions to do better this year. My number one goal is to.
If you could see through your computer into my house, you'd tell me to RUN, not walk to the nearest store and buy every book on organization they sell! The most frustrating thing is that when I want to be, I'm actually a VERY organized person. In my 'previous' life (b.c.--before children) I was an Executive Secretary in charge of 29 faculty members, 70 graduate students, and more than 400 undergraduates. I was very efficient and didn't have to write down anything to remember it--I stored it all in my (then functioning) brain..
Since the kiddos have come along, my memory has gone to pot and I'm so busy playing taxi, chef, and maid that I spend little to no time organizing my life. Now that my youngest is 3 (going on 23), I feel like I've got a bit of time to get myself and my household back in shape..
So I think I'll involve you, my readers, in my journey towards order. Maybe I'll post ideas, tips, or just show pictures of my progress thru the year. I'm actually in the middle of organizing my craft room, and specifically getting a stamp set index put together of my 250+ stamp sets (I know, I'm out of control!) I've gotten a good start, but need to endure to the end and "git 'er dun!!!".
I'll leave you with the "half way done" pics of my craft room and then you'll know and understand why I'm not posting/stamping every day!!
Make it a great 2008!!!
