    I am decluttering my living room this week... every chance I get.

    I am going to knit and embroidery in my spare/ rest time.

    Oh... holiday mom... what a good idea to make a point of drinking enough water.

    I hope everyone feels better soon! Little by little, right?

    I knocked a lot off my list these last few days. What a difference using the Christmas Prep time for cleaning and decluttering. :D

    This year I am trying to get into a daily routine. I am good at organising things but the small things fall through the cracks.
    This years "me" routine will be along the lines of,
    Sunday, pack work lunches, do all the folding.
    After Dinner, pack dish washer, tidy kitchen, do some craft.
    Before bed, make up off, shower, moisturise face, brush and floss.
    Bedtime, read, apply hand cream, sleep by 10pm.
    Morning, make/pull up bed.

    I think that if I start looking after the little things, the big things won't be so hard.

    I agree Katrina, I too have to adapt my routine to include the small things that make the difference.

    Yes, you ladies are so right. I've seen that I am quick to nurture others over myself. But it is the little things that are so important and that can make a difference. If we write them down, then they area more likely to be done since it is a visual reminder.

    Mary, I am off to a good start but know by past years that eventually the enthusiasm will drop off. I am hoping that if I keep writing a schedule here and that others join in we may be able to keep it up for a bit longer and it becomes part of our routine.

    I like this idea so much. I know that I'm more productive from Sept. - Dec. because of the cleaning plans matching up with Christmas prep. Come January, it's been hard to stay motivated but this year, I think because I have bigger things from my Spruce Up list, I'm more motivated.

    With all that said, though, it is easy to fall away from things after getting sick, etc. I like knowing that I have to check in. It is keeping me accountable to getting things done and not putting off things continually.
