Well folks, I managed to get about 50% of my to-do list completed. I went into this weekend with the best of intentions, but I fell short of my goals. Does this ever happen to you? I was not as productive as I had hoped to be, though I can’t blame myself completely. Things just didn’t fall into place as I expected.
I did make my famous pumpkin pancakes for my guests’ breakfast on Sunday morning. I only ate half of one, with no maple syrup. Yes, I’m back on a diet. My friends and I are going on a cruise in February, and with the upcoming holidays, I figured it was wise to start now. Three pounds down, 17 to go!
I also managed to get about 90% of my outdoor Christmas lights up. This coming weekend is the St. Mary’s, PA Light-up Night when Santa comes to town and all the lights are turned on. Yes, it’s before Thanksgiving, but that’s how they roll.
Speaking of which, I have a little Public Service Announcement. If someone wants to start decorating for the holidays now, the day after Halloween, or even in mid-July – let them. It’s going to be all right. You’ll be fine. I just find it funny that every time I post a picture of my holiday decorations a few people get themselves all worked up because “it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.” I am fully aware that it’s not Thanksgiving, but my life and business require me to get a head start on these things. And, to be honest, Christmas is the bomb! I love looking at the lights, the colors, the sparkles - they make me happy. It takes a lot of time and work to decorate forthe holidays, so I’m going to enjoy everything as long as possible. So, I beg of you, just think for three seconds before posting a comment about someone’s holiday cheer.
Other than that, I got some writing accomplished, way too much stressing and thinking done, and a little weirdness thrown in for good measure.
Off to complete some more tasks! And, according to UPS, my dining room chairs should be delivered today! Woot Woot!
What did you accomplish (or not) this weekend?
