New Year, Clean Slate

I’m starting off the new year with a clean slate…


If you’ve been here before, you may notice a dramatic change in the site design.  I’m sticking with WordPress, but I decided to make the colors and style a more accurate representation of my preferences.  I began with Cleanr, available for free at WPShoppe, and made a few modifications to sizing and structure.  Although I am sure the site will continue to evolve, I am pleased with the current look.

At Home

So maybe clean slate isn’t the best fit… but I do plan to cut my worldly possessions by 25% this year.  For Christmas I gave my folks Throw Out Fifty Things, and it’s got me thinking.  The majority of my cabinets and shelves are filled with items I rarely, if ever, use.  My closet is full of clothes I don’t wear (and my laundry bins are full of the clothes I do wear).  My shoe bin goes a whole season without having more than the top four inches disturbed.  And we still have a dozen unpacked bins stashed in our sunroom.  I see plenty of low-hanging fruit.

With my Health

I begin each year with a renewed commitment to tend to my health and my annual appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.  But, since I talk about that sort of stuff here, I’ll spare you the details.

Welcome to 2011.  What do you think of the new look?  What’s your big to do for the new year?

  1. I like the new look of your blog. Since, I am the recipient of the book “Throw Out 50 Things” I would like to say ….. I, too, am trying to “destuffocate” my life. That is my big to-do for the New Year. It is therapeutic to start anew on goals. Thank you for your inspiration and motivation.
