As busy as the past month has been and will continue to be, I’ve been really enjoying making Christmas decor, crafts and baking! That being said, I’ve also been sleeping less, so am a bit groggy in the mornings with so much to keep me busy each day that I find I can’t finish all the other projects I have to do. What’s a busy Mommy to do? Well, first thing I decided was to follow something my hubby suggested – to do one thing at a time! Sounds simple enough yet how many women know how to stop multi-tasking and just do One.Thing.At.A.Time? I struggle with that always, but I’m getting better at focusing by keeping this advice in mind. I find when I’m at work especially, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed if there’s too much going on at once, but if I take the time to set one task before me and purposely not think about the rest I am way more productive and less stressed out in the end. Yay! Thanks, Sweetie! You’re awesome! Anyhoo, so far I’ve sewn some homemade mini stockings for my kids, and just finished a charming Christmas sign/hanger. You can use the hanger for whatever you want, but since we don’t have a mantle it also makes a nice place to hang stockings! Bonus!
Also, my youngest wanted to make cookies today so we made some yummy chocolate ones – they were supposed to be cut out cookies but the recipe was terrible for rolling so we made due and I formed them into balls, then flattened with a fork. Oh well! They still taste good. :p
I need to make sure that tomorrow I don’t get distracted by other cool ideas and buckle down to finish more important projects lol!
‘Till Next Time,
