I have been slacking, a new year and going forward

Hello my name is Tiffany and it has been THIRTEEN days since my last post. I was sick AGAIN, I had some wonderful ladies in town, hosted two parties and had a jam-packed work week. Then I had only one day off and I back for another one, by the way did I mention that I have also started working out everyday?But now I am here again. Since I missed new year's and all the posts about that I figured that I should share some on that. I had a very nice very relaxed new year with a few of my favorite people, it was wonderful. My new year, the new year, I will get married this year, I will get to see some of my favorite people and there might be some changes on the work front as well. My new year resolutions for this year are as follows:

  • I will not be a Bridezilla

  • I will not be a Bridezilla
  • I will not be a Bridezilla
  • I will have my paper boxes transfered over to electronic copies, no small task as I have already mad over 1,000 scans and I have at least six seven boxes in the guest room and I cannot recall if I have any in the garage and at this very moment I am too much of a chicken to go and look. 
  • I will continue to change our life to consume less and reuse things whenever possible. 
The other night I was talking to my mom and she told me that Peter Walsh (he was the main organizer from TLC's Clean Sweep) has a show on Oprah's network OWN. I checked and Enough Already with Peter Walsh was the next show on. So Mikey and I watched it. It was a good episode for me to watch. I am not a hoarder by any means. We have a beautiful home that we are able to function in and if friends stop by unexpectedly it is not an embarrassment. I do have WAY more things than Mikey has. Years ago at Target I bought a bunch of light blue Tupperwares with red handle clips. The rule has been that I could only have enough stuff that I was not "using" that could fit in them. And I thought I had stayed true to that until my parents moved to Texas and I realized just how much long term storage I had at their house. Then there was a lot of nonsense so I have extra boxes that are in the garage that are not blue. That will change this year. Today was said to be -13 degrees in Denver, I never personally saw a thermometer at that level but I will say for the first time since we have moved in to our condo I wished that my Blazer was in the garage instead of many in-progress projects. I also recently realized that I have four blue Tupperwares between the guest room closet and the patio closet that are not labeled, therefore not inventoried and that is simply unacceptable. I am a total crackberry addict, all of my blue Tupperwares that are labeled and inventoried are cataloged in a memo in my BlackBerry so if I ever need something I just simply scroll. Well back to the Peter Walsh story. The episode that I happened to catch that night was about a girl that has a hoarder amount of emotional clutter. I have a lot of that, i.e. college notes, old cards, pictures, tee shirts that I have been saying that I would be making in to a quilt mind you this is would not be something that would be simple, Mikey says with me it never is... it would probably be several hundred hours. So I am going to let go. I am making aprons with Melissa ans Alison this weekend so I will look for some scraps to maybe use on that and get rid of the rest. Then maybe I will have room for the loot that I got at Target the other day 90% off. That will be another post. And a few words on posting, I will not be doing daily posts, I do not know how often exactly I will be posting I want to make sure that the posts are quality and while I have a lot of projects planned for this year most of them are big daunting projects like strip, sand, repair, paint and reupholster all of the the dinning room chairs plus one.
