This blog has been neglected for so long I almost forgot about it... almost. There is always something to do that seems more important at the time, but really I've just been avoiding it. Surrounded by a living room full of vintage merchandise needing to be sorted and priced and dishes waiting to be done I decided to force myself to sit down and write. The last 6 months of my life have been a mess of ups and downs... probably more downs than ups, but I'm working on that.
My house is slowly being put back together after the months of chaos and I hope to share pictures of my adorable kitchen soon... and then hopefully other rooms will follow. I've been keeping my living room and kitchen cleaned and organized for the most part (except when a new load comes in) and it's made a big difference in how I feel at home. I love organization!
After months of not sleeping well I've finally started sleeping again and I believe that is the first step to feeling happy! I love sleep! This year has been a really rough one. I'm taking all the steps I can to get our family back on track before January first so we can get back to whatever normal is for us. I've started back onto my cash budget system just this week and I have my coupon binder half-way organized. It will be all the way organized by the weekend. I've let both of those slip for the last few months. I'm going to get my food storage room organized again so I can start building up the storage we've been depleting.
facebook and someone asks me to share how I did it knowing full well my blog is being neglected. There is no point to having talents if you don't share them!
Starting Monday I'm going to be posting a vintage recipe or household tip daily on The American Homemaker's facebook page... I have so many fun vintage cookbooks and I'm looking forward to sharing the fabulous fun! If you follow AmericanHomemaker on instagram I'll be showing off a vintage treasure daily! So many fabulous vintage items find their way in and out of my house these days I'm excited to share them!
I love you all! Please let me know what you'd like to see on the blog/facebook page/instagram! I aim to please ;)
