Lets get some MOTIVATION!!!

For as long as I remember, I can hear my Dad saying "Lets get some Motivation!"
Usually is was told to us in a very stern, I mean business kinda voice, you know the one you need when talking to kids who aren't paying you any attention. Now that we're all grown up with kids of our own, I sill hear it, and say it myself.
2010 is going to be a big year. Its going to be a good year. Its a new beginning.
Thinking about New Year resolutions is easy, sticking to them is HARD! Last year 09' I'm sure I made a resolution, now if I could only remember what it was.... LOL! OKAY, OK... so this year I wanted to pick something that I can stick with, that I can do a little of daily, something that is possible to complete within a years time. It was time for some motivation. I decided that 2010 was going to be the year of Cleaning, and Organization. Wow, I said it, now its law!
First of all I would like to go through every drawer, closet, nook and cranny and clear out whats not being used, we don't need, or the kiddos have out grown. I'd also like to organize, something I've been meaning to do since we moved in.
Another item on the agenda is painting the rest of the house which is still builder white. I'd like to pick colors which I wouldn't normally choose. Not just those safe beige's', or creams.
Id also like to complete my decorating. A couple rooms still need furniture here and there.
I will be dragging you along on my journey to a clean home. At times I might be MIA, but with a nursing month old baby, a toddler, and a 4 year old, times will get pretty hectic. Eventually when I find my way back I will fill you in with all the jelly and gooey stuff in the middle.
May 2010 bring you happiness when you are sad, strength when you are weak, wellness when you are ill, and laughter when you are taking life too seriously!


  1. Sounds like a plan! I admire your attitude about organization...hard to do with little one's but you seem to have the willpower. I'll be watching and encouraging you as you go along!

  2. Sounds great! I can't wait for your journey to begin. I can't wait to see what all you do!

  3. WOW your list sounds just like mine, I started my cleaning frenzy on Sunday, spending 6hours in the kitchen.....my back is still sore;-)

    Looking forward to seeing your journey.

  4. Hi Jenna!

    I couldn't agree more with you about cleaning and getting organized this year! The big thing I noticed when I am unorganized is that it COSTS me money! I can't find something or I forgot I had something and I then go out and buy it all over again. Not good! so, I am with you for the goals of 2010!!

  5. Hi Jenna,

    I tagged you for a Kreative Blog Award, just check out my blog for the details.


  6. Jenna...you are going to be one busy lady! Love your post. When my third child was born, the oldest was four and the second was 2 1/2 years old. I remember those days well. The fourth came five years later. There is something for you to look forward too :) Thanks for following my post. I look forward to following yours! Jeanne :)
    PS..to save time, maybe you could add colour thru art?
