"Motivation: Whatever it Takes"

I have a confession.  I'm not really all that ashamed to admit it because I suspect that I'm not the only one.  Not to mention, it seems to happen every year.




It's January 15th and I still have two of my four Christmas trees up.  I try not to beat myself up about it, given the fact that most people only have to contend with one, and I had four.  My goal was to take one more down this weekend, but it just didn't happen.  I'm realizing that I'm just not a superhero and I can't do it all.

There are only 24 hours in the day.  I've developed a system for keeping myself motivated because as I mentioned earlier, taking down the trees can be depressing.  I've decided for each tree that comes down, something new goes up.  Cool, huh? 

In the kitchen, when the tree came down new place settings and new drapes went up.

And in the Master bedroom, the tree came down and I traded my pink star for a new sunburst mirror.  You know how much I love them






I set out this holiday season to add more gold to the room and this new mirror works like a charm.


I like it.  It's the little things.  And, whatever it takes for me to get those trees down, right?  Two down, two to go....
