This day promises to be just as boring as yesterday. Filled with cleaning, and decluttering. My mother visited my home Christmas day and said I have way to much clutter. So, I'm working on moving it out... donating it, or just trashing some of the stuff I hang on to. I saved every last paper from when my daughter was in pre-K and kindergarten! So yesterday I went through them and only taking out the most sentimental... the first mothers day card she made me, you know stuff like that. I didn't want to be like my own mother and never saved anything. I have NOTHING from my childhood. Oh wait, I still have a pony my father gave me when I was 10. It came with a barbie. But my parents were divorced and that didn't count because I saved that toy. She didn't save anything :( it would of been nice to be like "hey, I did that when I was in first grade...." ya know? It's sad I know, or maybe I'm pathetic, or to sentimental.. not sure where I got that from.
Anyways... Today is garbage day. And since I started my de-cluttering there is a couple extra bags on the curb today. I'm glade we only pay a flat rate of $12 a month for trash removal.
I got all the decorations taken down and saftly put away yesterday. The tree is still up, but it is bare. I think we are tossing it out. We have had this tree for about 5 years and Its looking pretty beat up. We have decided to go with a real one next year.
I am hoping my daughters new loft bed comes in today. My husband got a holiday bonus of $250 and he decided to take it in merchandise so we could give our daughter a new bed to create more room in her bedroom. She is excited about it. Her Queen size bed is going into the spare bedroom for my husband. We don't sleep together. Haven't in months. He snores so loud I wasn't getting a wink at night, unless I went on the sofa. But he kindly opted to go on the sofa and has slept there probably since February of this year! So, now he will have a bed, and a bedroom.
I better get off of here and get to folding my mountain of laundry.
bye! And thanks for reading.
Here are the Christmas pictures I took of my daughter and our 3 out of the 4 cats....
