"c.1300, "to give back," also, "to build up again, repair," from O.Fr. restorer, from L. restaurare "repair, rebuild, renew," from re- "back, again" + -staurare, as in instaurare "restore." "
Part of "restoration" includes restoring order to my cluttered house. This means cleaning cupboards (which I started today) and then - in a few days, putting away the Christmas stuff (de-Christmas-ing the house as my kids say). I love decorating for Christmas but I really enjoy the re-ordered house. It helps me think a little more clearly.
