Happy New Year!
I hope you had a lovely holiday season.
I took a rather long (two weeks) vacation this year. I wanted to step away from my desk/home office and do.....NOTHING.
I am now very confident in my ability to do NOTHING.
Last year we moved to the South Western part of Japan, closer to my mother and mother-in-law.
The move was time consuming but good since we did a lot of un-cluttering...or shedding...
Speaking of shedding, 2013 is the year of the Snake.
Here's a look at 2 different types of Snake decorations!

2013 we will continue to "shed"... living simply-surrounded only by things we like is our goal.
Stocking up on necessities is one thing but hoarding things you do not need duplicates of is another.
My vanity has been cleaned out. Old/expired things tossed. Memories on display.
Hooks are awesome, by the way!
Origami boxes come in handy for storing small objects like hair pins.
I think I've got this part of my home under control.
No buying makeup that is just going to gather dust and expire!
This year, I am going to lighten my load of books and keep my home office organized.
I've also made a non-work related schedule to manage my goals... no "resolutions" for 2013,
just dreams and goals!
I wish you all the best in the year 2013! May your wishes and dreams come true!
Do or do not, there is no try. -Yoda
