Thankful to have a roof over my head when it’s raining. Thankful the furnace turns on when it’s 20 degrees outside. Thankful for a place to sleep and share with my loved ones.
I don’t take one moment of home ownership for granted, and that’s why this year I decided to make goals for my home. Because I’d like to focus on some specific ideals for my nest, and thought this would be a great way to remind myself of what matters most.
Since we’ve only lived in our house a year and a half this could easily become a project to do list, but I’m working to prevent that. Because what matters the most is far beyond a to do list. Without further rambling, here are my goals for my home this year.
1. Develop a cleaning schedule and get on it
2. Clean out the clutter once and for all
Replace the old carpet will be on next year’s list for sure.
6. Open our home to family and friends
What matters most about our home is who we share it with. Since the dining room project is nearing completion, we plan to dance on the table and drink champagne! Or perhaps have some delicious cocktails and fabulous conversation
7. Lucky goal number seven is Plan for the Future
We are only the fourth owners of our 112 year old Colonial and I’m grateful that the previous families have taken such good care of it so we plan to do just the same. We will probably look into insulating the attic, renovating the bathrooms and drylock the basement. Maintenance for sure, but needed so that we can enjoy our space for the long haul.
And that’s about it! Did you make goals for your home this year? Are they projects or enjoyment?
