I've picked a word for 2011...

My word is CHALLENGE

My first challenge to myself is to get my stuff organized in the house. I've started by buying a filing system and have been cleaning my papers. I've filled a large recycling bin with old magazine clippings and all kinds of unnecessary crap. This first challenge has started on a very sour note since I received some very negative comments from my father. I must say, this is a very unpleasant start to the year. Will I challenge myself to better my relationships with my family?

To organize my papers, I bought a filing box with some purple suspended files and various colored files. I started labeling the files with my Dymo labeler. So far, it's mostly papers stuffed into folders, but I'll clean it all up within the month.

I'm also trying to organize my room. It's a huge mess. Not enough storage and too much stuff. I've emptied 2 of the four bins under the bed and will empty the other 2 soon enough. I've also been clearing out the magazine boxes, no need to keep so many mags just to gather dust. I'd already cut back on my magazine purchases with just one regular purchase (which is unavailable at the library) and an occasional extra one, but only ones I really want to keep.

Now, only one day left before I go back to work. Tomorrow I want to take the kids trampolining and if I'm feeling up to it, take Miss C skating.

My next challenge will be to cook more, trying new recipes and such.
