Life's a...mess

So I haven't been around in a while.  Sorry about that. Well kinda sorry.  Right after my last post I started my almost 3 week vacation from work.  I had a bunch of vacation days I needed to use or I would lose them.  But on day 2 I got sick and stayed sick through most of the holidays.  But I was able to make the most of it thanks to the cold medicine.

I headed out to Steamboat Springs, CO on Dec. 30 and spent the rest of my vacation on the slopes.  It was one of the best ski weeks I have ever had.  Over 18" of snow and that was just in one day!  New Year's Eve was a bit anti climatic since most of the family went to bed before mid-night.  Looking back we should have celebrated on East Coast Time.  I will remember that for next time.

I came home on a Monday and left early Tuesday morning (I was literally home for 2.5 hours - no joke!) for a work trip to Ft. Lauderdale.  Came home that Friday.  That weekend was full a bday parties, a surprise 30th party for a cousin and then a 94th bday party for my Gpop.  I put the party for my Gpop together so I was there most of the day.

Left again on Monday for a week's trip to Western and Northern NY.  Came home Wednesday night only to head to Houston, TX on Thursday to help the Twin with the marathon.  She is in charge of all the media and I head down to help her out on race weekend.  Left again Monday for a supposed to be quick trip to Delmont, PA (near Pitt) but the hugh snow on Tue. landed me in a hotel for another night.  I got to be home some of yesterday and some of today and all day tomorrow.  I have a few things going on this weekend and then back on the road.  My travel won't slow down until mid-Feb.  And I can't wait.

I just got the Christmas decorations put away today.  I need a good few days home with get my life back in order.  I have declared this year the year of organization!  I have pinned a ton of tips and tricks and now it's time to execute!  Both with work, Stella & Dot and my house.  Here is a pic just in case you thought I was exaggerating!  Pretty bad, right?  Thankfully the Christmas is now all gone.

Here are some things on my 2014 To Do List:

  • Go through closet and PURGE (I tend to hold on to clothes because I may want to wear again)
  • Recycle all the unnecessary paper - mags, old bills, junk mail, etc. 
  • Clean and reorganize basement - AGAIN
  • Clean and reorganize office to accommodate both my FT job and Stella & Dot
  • Paint master bedroom
  • Paint and renovate master bath
  • Organize my finances
  • Put myself on a budget plan and stick to it
  • "refresh" the rest of the rooms in my house.  I need to find and commit to some sort of style and go with it.  This may require some sort of assistance.
