I go through phases of what I'm into in my life. My last phase was reading and learning new things. I would read all day everything I could get my hands on. I was into the history of all the wars, animals, human behavior and communication. I still read a lot but that phase is over. I've moved on to cleaning and redecorating our home. I have cleaned the entire home from top to bottom, closets, cabinets, storages, etc and organized every drawer, under the sinks, cabinets, etc. We cleaned all the carpets and walls and it looks great but now I've started redecorating. I've never redecorated a house so this is really fun.
Were getting new couches and tables, new kitchen table, putting decorative shelves up on the wall in the entry hall and painting some rooms. The carpets are ok for now. I'm getting new curtains so no more blinds only on all the windows. I'm especially enjoying doing the kids rooms. I ordered new comforter sets for their beds, curtains, will get new furniture..just not quite yet, painting and getting items for their rooms like clocks, closet organizers, ceiling fans, beanbags, lamps and cute rugs. DD10s room will be pink with zebra and purple designs to accent it. DS13s room is in neutral tones but also animal prints, just more subtle leopard touches throughout the room. I'm having so much fun!!!
The kids also got to pick out 2 new items each for their rooms and DS chose a stereo system (very loud) and a pair of Beets headphones. DD chose a tv and an Xbox. It feels so good to get them some nice things because for a while we were struggling pretty bad and they didn't get much from me. Maybe one small gift for holidays and birthdays and maybe just a card. They've been so understanding and are such good kids so I don't mind rewarding them with some gifts.
I'm not made of money now either but things have settled down and I'm in a position to buy a few new things finally...and I'm lovin' it. Were not a materialistic family but it is nice to have new toys and things and I'm also lovin' the spotless, clutter free, organized home. It smells so good..lol. I love being at home now.
When this is over I'll move on to a new phase, not sure what yet. Maybe art..oil painting, sculpture, charcoal drawings or maybe photography. I don't know but that's what I have in mind. I'm having a great day and I just wanted to share some of the little things in my life that are important and make me happy and peaceful inside.
So what are you into lately? Please tell. I like to know what others interests and activities are in their lives. (Sorry so long).
