We are exhausted! Why? Because this past week, yours truly had the 'grand' idea to follow the Organized Christmas Grand Plan. It's great!
... but we're pooped. Since we actually started a little late (hard to believe, right?, since we're still how far away from the holidays?), we had a bit of catching up to do. Instead of tackling just one area this weekend, we actually tackled THREE - the front porch/yard, the living room and the entry way. Honestly, it sounded like a good idea when Kevin and I first talked about it. However, this afternoon at 2:30, having just finished the last item on the list, we're kind of re-thinking the 'good idea' bit.
The upside is we're finished with the first three weeks of the plan, and I must admit, things are looking gorgeous! The front porch and front yard look clean, well-groomed and inviting. The entry way sparkles with shimmering family photos on the hutch, a fresh, clean, beautiful beaded runner and new scented candles. The living room shines from top to bottom with sparkling clean floors, windows, well-vacuumed and Febreezed sofa and loveseat cushions, new candles and cinnamon apple scented potpourri.
Is it worth it?! YOU BET!
... but maybe just tackle one area at a time ;o)
