Monday Morning Ramblings

Seriously ya’ll, my weekend flew by.

I wanted to get my tree taken down, but here I am on Monday, with the tree still up!  It WILL get taken down this week danggit!

I am trying to get more organized.  It’s one of my New Years goals (goals that I need to post so I can visualize and make them happen, but yeah, still need to get that written up).  I bought a cute new planner.  Nothing special, but it’s a place to write out my important dates so I can see them all laid out.  I have tried and tried to get with the digital planning, but I need to write it out, with a pen & paper and actually SEE it.  My husband does not understand because he’s such a digital planner type of guy, but it not only helps me remember things, but it motivates me to stay on track.

I also started Shaun T’s T25 workout by Beachbody last week.  **our living room has been converted to the exercise room so that’s why the table is moved in the photo above**  Today starts week 2!  My hubby is doing it with me so that is helping me stay accountable.  But last night I wrote out my workout calendar for the month and hung it by my desk.  I can’t even tell you how happy it makes me.  It’s just so cute and structured.  I love seeing it all written out and planned!

Now if I could get on track with my eating and meal planning, I’d be golden!  That is on the agenda for this week.  Over the weekend, we had a birthday party, it was rainy and gloomy, my teen was doing a 31-page extra credit history packet (that I cursed her under my breath for because if her grade was better she wouldn’t have to spend hours trying to bring it up with EC!) and also working on a science fair board.  Ugh.  And now it’s Monday and my precious weekend is over.

*sigh*

Oh well….it does no good to complain about it now, does it?  Just gotta pull on the big girl panties and get on with the week!

As a parting note, I read this quote today and I really (like super really) loved it.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. ~ Mark Twain

I’m not sure I would have fully grasped it before going to France last year, but as much as traveling gives me anxiety and as much as I love my comforts of home and long for them while I’m away, there was something really special about experiencing the way other people live.  I don’t want to stay in my one corner of the earth for my entire life.

    • Thanks, Fristine! There’s just something about pen & paper, right?! I don’t care how many gadgets they come out with, I think I will always like it old school.

      Btw, I like what you’ve done with your blog design! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts.
