No scrapping Monday just lots of organizing and cleaning

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Here's my first layout as a Design Team member at Scrapping Out Loud. Our challenge this week is to Scrap your New Years Resolutions if you make them, if you don't, if you don't keep them etc. You know you want to make some this year so come join our challenge to scrap a layout about yours this week and be entered to win this month's RAK!!! Click here for the details.
So far I've come out swinging at my goals this year and I pray for the courage to keep my momentum to achieve the goals I have set before me. I have walked everyday and done my sparkpeople challenge day 2, watched what I am eating, drank more water, cleaned and organized my home. I am completely exhausted as I write this post because I spent the entire day cleaning, organizing and then my sister in law arrived about 8 p.m. with a steam cleaner for me to use. I love her so much. She cracks me up at times but is the most thoughtful person. She rented the machine to clean her carpets and couch and then drove it out to me and we live 45 mins from each other.
So I spent 4 hours last night cleaning my dining room and living room and halls. I can not tell you how good I feel right now. My floors look 150 percent better than they did this morning. We live in an apartment and the carpet is cream (SHYEAH RIGHT HUH) and cheap. Can you imagine how bad these floors were with a husband, 11 year old boy and a baby? Well not anymore! It was ALOT of work but SO worth it and quite a workout I might add. Now we'll just have to see if I can get out of bed tomorrow morning.
I love reading your comments on my posts so thank you for taking the time to leave them. I was reading Kristi's and she directed me to her blog for a surprise. Guess what it was??? This lil award I totally {heart}!

Hi Shemaine, it's great to see that you're tackling your Stuff! I was feeling enthusiastic too, but then the freeze set in and this weather makes me soooo depressed, I've gone all useless! Hope you're happy today in your lovely clean place! x
