Regarding: Seasons

As I have mentioned before, I seem to be in quite the decorating mode this fall.  I just had this urge to make things look nice.  Nicer.  We don’t live in a museum.  We live in our house and our house looks lived in.  Especially considering we share it with two large dogs and 3 cats.  So keeping things looking nice is typically a challenge.   And I can only go so far with this before the cats turn everything into something they will throw up later.

But I will try anyway.  Now, I finished the coffee table a couple of weeks ago and we have done a GREAT job of keeping the table free of crap.  My theory (to be tested) is that if it looks like, we won’t pile crap on it.  Optimistic of me probably, but worth a try.

The Living Room and Dining Room are mostly done.  Although I am still not happy with the top of the media cabinets.  Next is the kitchen table.  I will be hitting up Home Goods tomorrow for some sort of tablecloth and centerpiece type thing.  We NEVER use our kitchen table (or the dining room table for that matter) so keeping it clear will be a big test.

Now that I think about it, should I decorate the tray tables scattered around the living room, where we actually eat? Probably not.

I have decided to split this decorating frenzy into 3 seasons: autumn, winter and spring/summer and will store them accordingly.  I will sort through what I already have as each season arrives and purge anything that is not worth keeping.  Each season, I will try to repurpose things, like using the candle holders but changing out the candles, etc.

Wow.  This makes me feel like an adult.  This and the fact that I have a spice cabinet.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. Sorting and planning is a good idea. I try to keep all of my decorations together for each season. I’m a Fall/Harvest freak! I’d rather decorate for this than I would for Christmas. Not sure why…
