Well, almost. I’m writing this the last week of the year, and it will go live with only two days left until 2016 is gone.
How do you spend the waning hours of the year?
I complete all my charity donations which I began in October. Sometimes I do them mostly on line. This year, seems like I had many more checks. Keeping up with all paper work almost defeats me. Even as a teacher passing out papers was not my strong suit. LOL
Then time to make sure I’ve turned in all my info to my PR folks for the January newsletter.
Decorations will come down on Jan 1 because we’re having a small gathering for New Year’s Eve.
Santa brought me a new desk. (love, love, love it!) At least I will when I’ve got everything organized the way it will work best. Here’s the old set up.
The printer was on a black file cabinet. A long door we’d used as a desk eons ago before we got a nice desk set up at the old house was recycled for the lakehouse. I just couldn’t make this set up work. I always needed more work space..
Thanks to my daughter and SIL, Laura West Strawser and Kevin Strawser, for putting it together.
I swapped out file cabinets moving one into the closet and giving the other to Bob.
I painted the old shelf unit and stacked it on a table in the corner.This is one coat.
I found boxes to serve as file drawers, but Laura didn’t like them.
For Christmas,she gave me a new file drawer and some containers for the top of the desk. So, Monday Bob and I went to Container Store (what a fun store that is!) and picked up another one. Now if I can remember what is in which drawer! And the top is still not set up right.
I must make time to go through my picture downloads and move some into folders so I don’t take quite so long when I’m searching for a particular picture for a blog or FB post. (I’ve been saying that I really have to do this. I hope to attack it this week. I know it will save me time in the long run.)
And then there are all the pounds I gained after just losing them. I got started again, Dec. 14 writing down everything that went into my mouth. That process really works for me. Well, with the rush of the holiday celebration, I stopped writing down every morsel. Amazing how those morsels can build up when you’re not writing them on paper. So, after losing 6 pounds over about 2 weeks, I totally blew it over Christmas and regained 5 of those pounds. But I know what I did wrong (besides eating whatever I wanted), I didn’t write down what I ate every day for every meal and snack. So I know I can do this again.
How are you doing? Did the holidays add pounds to your body? What will you do about it? Or can you love yourself just the way you are? What things do you plan to do to finish up this year?
Next week, we’ll talk about how you spent New Year’s Eve and what specific goals you have for 2017
