purging, cleaning, reorganizing

That is how I spent my day. I am on an organizing kick. An obsessive organizational kick you could say. The 2007 is starting off with a bang as I am going to get all those little projects that you put off because they are just no fun yet need to be done anyway. I have least 20 pairs of shoes and five bags of clothes ready for the lovely people of Amvets (and Melanie :) to inherit. I also FINALLY threw out some undies that I have had since high school. Yup. It really needed to be done. My closet is now organized by color AND by length of sleeve. Yes this is perhaps a bit OCD, but I figure if everything really has its place it will be easier to be put back in its place. Next up is my endless stacks of sheet music. Tomorrow is going to be a long, long day.

So how did I spend last night? You know the biggest party night of the year? Although we were invited to three different locations, Bj and I opted for a quiet night at home. I made some chicken fettucini alfredo (sauce from scratch :) and some bruschetta and after a lovely dinner we watched Scoop-a new Woody Allen movie. Wouldn't you know that I would fall asleep on the couch before 10:00? Bj let me sleep a bit longer and woke me up right before midnight. We celebrated in bed, watching Dick Clark, and with a kiss and a Happy New Year, lights off and we were in dreamland. We are the most exciting couple ever. We didn't even open our champagne. Oh well, maybe next year! Anyway, Happy New Year all!!

We stayed home, but cannot get away with going to bed early because the kids all have to stay up now... and they don't fall asleep anymore. We had lots of friends over and played games and ate lots of junk food.

I'm organizing too - why is it that January feels like such a good time to organize?

I'm also organizing. And getting rid of pounds of old clothes and shoes. Though I must say, my closet isn't even REMOTELY as ocd as yours...

Happy New Year!

Well well well, aren't we just the saddest bunch here. :)

We were in bed by NINE.

As far as organizing goes, I have been purging the pantry. One of my friends has the nice clear ladies shoe boxes you buy at the Container Store for cereal bars, bagged snacks, etc. Kinda pricey to start with, but they're stackable so I think it's worth the price to have a NEAT pantry. Plus it'll sure help make grocery lists better since I can I see what we have on hand.

P.S. Organizing the closet by color, sleeve length and season is the only way to go!
