so i've haven't been blogging for awhile. i'm very excited to start blogging again, especially to READ blogs. i have found that whenever we travel or decorate for holidays... i get really behind on everything. i've been trying to tackle my to do list lately. i promised myself (totally cheating right now) that i could get online when everything was done. i struggle to keep things tidied up (really working on this), not to be confused with dirty. grant and i are both pretty clean people but i think messy is a better word. our bedroom is messy. things get messy because unfortunately i am an extremist. my mom used to joke that my room (in high school) looked like a tornado hit it or it was immaculate. so right now i'm working on getting everything immaculate and then keeping it that way. now just to describe how ocd i can really be when it comes to cleaning.... i'm not just talking dusting, vacuuming and laundry. i'm talking cleaning the couch, armchair and anything upholstered (i got a carpet cleaner/hard-surface cleaner/upholstery cleaner thingy for christmas.... BEST THING EVER), cleaning out the vent of my blow dryer, cleaning out all my kitchen cabinets, my closet, my bathroom cupboards, trudy's wardrobe, medicine cabinets, fridge, under the bed, re-organizing our books, cleaning out the garage, cleaning the inside and outside of our cars. going through my makeup, steaming anything in my closet that needs it (no more being late to church), anyway i could keep going but i'm kind of getting discouraged. ha. sooooooo i'll hopefully be done with all this by the end of this week? not making any promises.
one thing that has been keeping me from getting all of this done is my phone. a few years ago grant and i bought droids. it was an awesome buy one get one free deal and since grant most definitely needs a smart phone for his job... it was perfect. well my droid screen broke and we were due for an upgrade and so i got an iphone. first i have to say that as far as droids go... i don't really have too many complaints. the droid makes it easier to personalize much more than the iphone but the iphone is amazing. i love it. i feel like it's my little toy. i just got a case that i ordered for it in the mail and i love it! i jumped on the instagram wagon and haven't regretted it since. the photo a day challenges are such a fun and easy way to document things in every day life. just another version of a journal. here is mine for the month of january. (everybody interprets things differently and that's what makes the photo a day challenges so fun. a few of mine that may be confusing... #3- i adore color, #4- what comes in my letterbox, #6- bath time with trudy makes me smile, #16- that morning i woke up to a beautiful bouquet of organic greens, #28- a quote that sheds light).
