/becoming rational minimalist along with redoing the house. My home is
over 100 yrs. old and is perfectly imperfect.
I’m thankful that the discarding, organizing, and decorating portion of
my KonMari journey is finished. I'll do a quick look over of each
categories but I'll mostly be following the red portion of the challenge
when it applies and working on my own projects. We have moved onto
projects, repairs, painting, and refinishing the woodwork in our home. I
have a list that’s specific to each room that my husband and I will be
trying to get done. I'll deep clean my house along with the challenge
My project goals so far for the categories:
• Books-Finish typing up the recipes for my Cooking Notebooks.

Entertainment center. & Paint the living room and family room.

our children and grandchildren while sharing many family times. Have a
peaceful relaxing home that supports our life together. We enjoy our
