There's a few items up for discussion this morning. Things that will not rest till they are discussed. So,
1. Christmas planning- did you make a planner last week? I loved all your comments on last week's post about Christmas planning. Do you not love making lists?! Is it just me?? K, I know you're with me :)
Anyway, I did make my planner. I made a list of handmade things I want to make and made lists of things I need to order/go buy. I made a rough draft of things I need to accomplish each week so I'm not freaking on December 15th. And please know that when I say "things to accomplish" it's like: print return address labels and replenish my wrapping paper stock...not that difficult. I realized that I try to do too much (who doesn't) and then get frustrated because I can't get it all done.
So I'm trying to be more realistic. Like I'm not going to be able to give my sister a hand knitted sweater made by me. 1. she hates sweaters 2. I don't knit...UNrealistic.
2. Heathy things- on Monday I posted a little list of goals for myself (I must've been feeling really driven last week, huh?) about some things I wanted to do to make myself feel better. Drink more water, get more sleep, etc. I've been doing OK.
Like I've probably gotten a B-. OR C+. I've been drinking lots of water and eating almost no sugar, so that's good. But the sleep thing? Hmmmm. And the exercise thing? no. I have a somewhat good excuse for that, but I'll share that later. We did go on a pretty vigorous hike yesterday, so that counts, right?
3. Happy Halloween!
We dressed the kids up on Saturday for a little shindig at our new church. I have to be honest...I usually love dressing them up like whatever...this year has just been too crazy. I didn't put any thought into their costumes at all. I sat down one day last week and made Sophia a poofy witch tutu (so easy) and bought the boys two black sweat suits at Wally and called them Ninjas. That's what they wanted and I refuse to spend $15 on dumb costumes they wear for an hour. So there ya go. Do you remember last year??
Star Wars kids?? Loved their costumes last year!
and the year before that?? They couldn't make a decision for the life of them...so they came up with
So that's it for Monday business. Thank you for attending this meeting. :)
