Happy New Year!

I mentioned in my last post that I was crossing my fingers that the office would close early on New Years Eve & luckily we did. We closed a little before 2:00 so I stopped & had my nails done. We ended up going to dinner with friends. Caliente closed early so we went to La Carreta.
Love, love, love the Rum Rita's! After dinner we went to another neighbor's house & just hung out. All the kids (and some of the guys) shot fireworks. I'm not a fan. They make me nervous & I don't like the noise. Dean had to actually get our fire extinguisher to put out a fire in the street. Being that it was raining I have no idea how a fire started but whatevs. We actually went home before midnight but did manage to stay awake til 12:00. Yes, we were in bed watching TV but we were awake!

I'm sure everyone is cleaning out & organizing. I'm no different. Our closet is a constant issue for me. It's a great size but it still doesn't seem to be enough. I think the real problem is that there is so much space that I don't really know how to use. I need one of those closet people to come in & fix it all up but geez they're crazy expensive. I worked on the closet yesterday but I still have a ways to go. I started with these.
$10 for 35 hangers at Sam's. Dean picked up 2 packs & I'll be going back Friday to get more. I have a huge problem with stuff sliding off of hangers. These are velvet so there's no slipping. They're also narrower than regular hangers (see the pic on the box?) so they take up less room. I was able to get a lot of my clothes switched over to these yesterday & already I can see a huge difference. My goal is to get the closet completed this weekend. I'm trying to get the organizing done because we're approaching "busy season" at work & I'm not sure how much overtime I'll be working. January 17th is our first full Friday work day of the season. That's going to be hard but it's only for 3 months.
Has anyone made any resolutions? I haven't come up with anything aside from the usual - watch my eating, exercise more, continue running & trying to get organized. I googled the symptoms of adult ADD & I really think I have it. Dean doesn't agree. I feel really scattered & all over the place. Not sure how to get a handle on that! I'm going to try making lists. Maybe if I see in writing what needs to be done I can do it. We'll see.
Anyway, yesterday LSU played in the Outback Bowl. We went to our friends next door to watch & eat. I didn't watch too much but I ate plenty.
Hope everyone had a great holiday! Happy New Year!


  1. Happy New Year's! I really, really need to organize all of our closets! Our big problem is that the closets in our house are sooo small! I need to be more organized and efficient with it.

  2. I have a couple of closets I need to organize. My husband is a hoarder and keeps every thing so it is all I can do to keep things under control. I guess it is true, opposites attract!?! LOL
    Happy New Year!!!

  3. I have most of our closets in pretty good shape, but we went to Ikea and saw a great system we want to get for the linen closet...after that...who knows...maybe I'll do them all in this system! Never heard of a Rum Rita...sounds good! Have a great day...heard you were getting some cold weather out your way...stay warm!
