Let’s just be honest. Not all of December is pinecones and glitter. There’s parts of the holiday that are hard. Life doesn’t stop just because it’s December. And life is hard sometimes.
Families are separated.
People are sick.
Relationships are complicated.
It’s not all happy business.
For us, I’m looking at my belly and then looking back at the calendar that says “due date” on April 16th and “lease is up” on April 1st and then I look to our “Life Planner” and all the pages are blank. We don’t really have a plan. It’s really hard because I’m like Super Duper Planner lady. I’m just wired that way. I try not to let this lack of life plan bother me, but it’s not easy. Instead of thinking about it…or at the very least, in an attempt to distract myself from this I have made a big LIST.
Just keep busy.
Some fun things, some mindless things, some necessary things.
To distract myself this December, my list looks like this:
-Go through kids’ toys/donate (half done!)
-Decorate buffet (done!)
-Work on 2012 photo book
-Make a baby Smash book
-Go to IKEA (done!)
-change duvet covers (done!)
-hang pennants (done)
-Clean my closet
-Organize my craft area
-Make stamps (done!!)
-Plan next etsy line
-Address Christmas cards (almost done!)
-Make robes for kids for Christmas
This is my plan for right now…to just keep busy til there’s a plan in place. Better go check some more things off this list 🙂
