SoCS & Just Jot January-2022 “Resolve”

I gave up on resolutions because year after year I’ve failed and quickly. I’ve decided for this year to switch my resolution into a word of the year.  After weeks of thinking about which word would fit my needs, I decided on the word “FOCUS”. I need to apply focus to my life. I’ve been all over the place starting projects and not finishing them. I’ve been making excuses for not having time for anything and being lazy. Also, forgetting to take my meds or drink more water.

I want to prioritize my health, my mental wellness, and focus on my family and home. So, in the midst of all things, I’ll be tracking my commitments on my planner so I can stay focused on my challenge.

Wishing everyone in 2022, filled with love, laughter, and health.

Happy New Year!

Boo…

I’m excited I love Halloween, the kids coming for candy and their lovely costumes. I got up early to fill up my Cauldron with candies. Also, fixing my outdoor decorations because has been windy. I hope we have nice weather like the past two days. I have been enjoying horror movies and watching with my granddaughter “Vampirina”

To everyone who loves Halloween enjoy the day and have fun.  And like “Vampirina” loved to say “Have a spooktacular day and to all “batkins” have fun.

 

Boo…

SoCS~ List

I considered myself to be a fanatic of writing lists. I don’t have the same sharp memory from a few years ago. I need them to function at work and at my home. I’ll be lost if I don’t have my sticky notes everywhere. December is the month I have more lists than ever. I have a Christmas gift list, groceries list, Christmas card send list, and a to-do list. Thanks to that list I don’t miss a gift or a Christmas card. It saves me the time to run an errand at the last minute or feel embarrassed that I missed a gift.

To my surprise, my Christmas gift shopping is all done. You can imagine how I feel. For the first time in years, everyone on my list has been crossed out including my husband. For the most part, I did my shopping online. I didn’t realize how easy and convenient way to shop.  The majority of my shopping was from local businesses. This year I cut down from the big franchise stores and help our locals.

The real challenge here is the wrapping part. For me, that’s the toughest job and I don’t get any help. So as soon, they begin to arrive I will try to get it done. So, what’s next? Next weekend I will be sending Christmas cards and make cookies. I feel more relaxed and enjoying the moment. I did decorate my Christmas tree the day after Halloween. I feel wonderful and not as rushed as other years.

I don’t know yet what I’m doing for Christmas. My two boys will be here but my daughter won’t be traveling because of the Covid-19.

I just hope we can all have a nice and safe Christmas.
