The Christmas Mess Clean Up

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays!! 

My house took a beating!  We had between 10-15 people here every day for four days straight and my house isn’t that big.  Things just kept appearing out of nowhere.  Once we opened Christmas presents, things got even worse.  The whole time though, we were able to sit around and visit and it wasn’t uncomfortably cluttery (I made that word up!)

My son was jumping for joy that his wife could go into the kitchen this time.  In the past, we didn’t let her in there.  Her dad owns a restaurant so they don’t put up with a mess in the kitchen.  I’m not sure if I passed the test or not, but it was nice to not worry about it!  Of course, even though the counters were looking good, it made all the clutter in the cabinets and on the shelves stand out so I’ll be heading in there again soon.

I’ll be working on getting everything cleaned up today!  I already started on the living room and things are looking way better after only a few minutes of picking up.  This is great.  I’m loving it.  It’s days like these that I can’t wait to get back to decluttering!! It sure makes cleaning so much easier.  If you haven’t started already, 2018 is your year to do it!

 

Never Been So Happy For a Snow Storm!

I hate snow!  But today, I’m really happy that we’re having a big snow storm.  I don’t think I’ve been this happy about 12″ of snow in a really long time.  Maybe ever. Why am I so happy about all this snow?  Because it’s forced down time.  I don’t have to go anywhere because I can’t.  Isn’t it GREAT???  I love it!

WINTER SNOW STORM WARNING

The winter storm warning goes all the way until 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night!  As long as our electricity doesn’t go out, I’ll be home relaxing and getting ready for Christmas.  Yay!! I wasn’t sure how I would get it all done but now that I’m stuck at home, it shouldn’t be a problem at all.  The only thing I need now is some hot chocolate.

All three of my cats are sitting in the living room with me.  They’ve been a little annoyed this week with all the stuff from the truck in here.  They’ll be very happy when it’s all cleaned up again.  Hopefully it will be by the end of the night.  The kids are hanging out in their bedrooms.  It’s so nice that we’re not rushing around tonight going to meetings or out shopping.  I’m hoping that I can find some good Christmas movies on TV.

Warning Extended

The winter storm warning originally was scheduled to end at 9:00 p.m. but they have extended it to midnight.  After all the shoveling I did this morning, you can hardly tell what I did.  We were only supposed to get another 2-4″ but we’ve long surpassed that amount.  Brian from Brian’s Blog wanted to see pics so here they are!  The daylight ones are from earlier today and the night time ones are from about 2 hours ago.  I think there’s a lot more snow now. I’ll post some more pics in the morning.
