New, New, New Everywhere

It's January! A new month, a new year, a new format and a new outlook!!

I am determined to make this a great year and I really think this change to monthly areas will be a HUGE benefit to me, and hopefully to all of us involved in the group. I haven't felt this positive about things in a long time and I look forward to seeing how we all conquer clutter and dust this year. This is the year for us! Now to put down my pompoms and move into my house and the real work.

January is Playroom/Office/Den month. I had to think about this one for a bit. There's not really a set playroom in my house. Toys are everywhere. With 5 children, it happens. The desk is in a closet right now so obviously we have no office. I haven't heard of a den in years. Exactly what is a den? I think of the room with big leather chairs where the men sit and smoke their cigars. LOL I'm sure there's some modern version, but I don't think I have one of those.

Anyway, thinking some more I came up with some rooms. First, I have a music/game room. That sounds like a playroom to me since we play games and music in it. Also, we don't have an office yet, but I know where we are going to put it when the room gets cleaned out, so why not start working in there? It's the Florida room and right now it's full of boxes that need unpacked and stuff that needs to be given away.

Since the rooms are chosen, it's time to take pictures and post them. Then it's off to the races we go. One month, two rooms...GO!

  1. Haha! It's funny what different people call the same thing. I put 'den' on the list because it's something I grew up hearing. I think of it as what people called a room with a desk before we had 'home offices'. And I lived in FL but had never heard of a Florida room before you had one.

    Furniture too...I'm trying right now to remember what my grandmother called her couch/sofa, it was kinda odd. Oh! Davenport. I never did figure that one out.

    All in all, nomenclature aside (had to sneak in a big word there ;) ), I think you've got a fine couple of rooms there to work on. The closest I have is the end of the living room with 2 desks and some storage bins in it. I guess that's kinda good for me, a nice slow start. lol
