Why hello there. I took an unexpected break from blogging over the holidays. The last of our family left town today, so now I'm back at it.
Here's where my attention has been lately:
Nothing! The upside of academia is getting a long break over the holidays. I don't go back until January 3. Aside from keeping an eye on my email, all of my projects are on the back burner until the new year.
Finding room for all the things we got for Christmas. And by we, I mean the kiddo. She got to play with two of her new toys immediately. The rest, we have hidden away in a closet and will slowly role out in the next few months.
I conducted my annual weeding of all the things. I now have a MASSIVE pile of donations to go out during our building's next pick up. So long diaper changing pad!
Right after I weeded everything, I took pictures of everything we own for our home inventory. I try to do this once a year. Next, I will go through the pictures and update the database I made to keep track of everything.
This morning, I gave our home a deep clean. This is a dust the baseboards, wash the stove grates, scrub of the fridge out kind of deep clean.
On top of the deep clean, I did about a dozen loads of laundry. If it could be machine washed, it was machine washed. Nothing like heading in to the new year with a clean slate.
I set my goals for 2022 and will start setting up my bullet journal tomorrow.
