My New Year’s resolutions are to find yoga pants that don’t give me camel toe (I will discuss this resolution in a future post) and to get organized.
In an attempt to become more organized, I decided to turn to Martha Stewart’s monthly calendar (gentle reminders, helpful tips and important dates for January) as my guide.
Note: Martha Stewart’s suggestions are in bold.
Take down Christmas tree
Store ornaments and other decorations
Take entire decorated Christmas and chuck it out the front door.
Screw the ornaments and other decorations.
Send husband to the store for tampons and chocolate.
Berate husband for buying Peanut M&M’s instead of Peanut Butter M&M’s.
Collapse onto the couch and watch a marathon of Dance Moms reruns.
Eat entire 12 oz bag of Peanut M&M’s.
Drive to the store for more M&M’s.
Troll the neighborhood for discarded Christmas trees for upcoming blog post: “101 Uses For a Dead Christmas Tree.”
Place Christmas tree boughs over perennial beds in a crisscross pattern as mulch
Launder holiday table linens
Dismantle wreaths and garlands
Mulch greenery and add to compost pile
Write thank-you notes for holiday gifts
Upload and organize holiday photos
Write a mass thank-you e-mail using only holiday emoticons.
Discover that the only holiday photos you took were of the toilet coffee mug.
Buy holiday frames on clearance. Remove the photos that came with the frames and add them to the family scrapbook.
