Another Year

Due to the high demand for another year (Amy) I will try to blog everyday,...again.  How hard can it be?  I've already done it.  My biggest fear is running out of stuff to photograph.  I don't want a lot of repeats.  But seeing as how I rarely have large amounts of down time I think I can come up with something.



Today's potd is about decorating.  Something I enjoy doing.  Something that Mickey's happy to let me do, as long as I keep the cost reasonable.  This isn't a big project but it adds a lot to the foyer.  Everything is from IKEA.  (desk, lamp, mirror)

Foyer



It's nowhere near done yet.  I need to give the walls and possibly the door a coat of paint.  And by that I mean color.



Speaking of painting....I started a contest for the kids today.  The contest will run for the entire month of January.  The winner gets their room painted first.  Wondering what they have to do?  By 7:00 p.m. every day their room has to be clean.  I don't think that's asking too much.  And secretly I'm hoping this will help them learn to pick up after themselves.  I believe I've heard that it takes 30 days to make something a habit.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.



All three kids passed inspection today.  I'll continue to post how well (or not so well) they do.

Great we get another year. Personally, it would be a real bummer not to hear about you all every day. It's fun! Good job on keeping your goal! Way to go!
