What’s up with me and what’s up with you? How are you doing? Are you staying above water? Are you on task, on goal and feeling accomplished?
I don’t think I am. I think I am more or less just putting one foot in front of the other and getting by.
This has been a strange year for me.
It’s my hope that next year will be easier emotionally. I hope that I will be able to relax into the next 4 years. But really, I don’t think it will be relaxing.
I have an elderly mom, a teenage daughter and I am a single mom with a full time job. The word relax just isn’t in my vocab!
So what’s a girl to do? (Can I still call myself “girl”)?
OMG, I still want to be able to call myself a “girl” but at 53, is that silly? I still feel much like the same old me, only a bit more tired.
Well, in order to make it on a daily basis I keep myself busy with work, my blog and weird stuff around the house.
Like putting up a Christmas Tree, two weeks before Thanksgiving! Okay, that is weird. But hey, whatev.
See the box that I put the tree on?
I plan on wrapping that with some gift wrap. I think it will look cute. I bought this wrapping paper:
I will probably do that tonight.
I have a few other little projects to do as well.
Like these leftover Fall pumpkins.
I plan to paint them white and add some bling.
And this branch:
I plan to paint that white and add some sparkle!
And this Eifel tower:
I don’t plan on doing anything with it. 😉 I just had to have it.
As you can see, I just keep busy doing little inexpensive things.
I like having little projects to look forward too.
Oh I still have my home made Christmas gifts to finish!
So that’s what I’m up to. A lot of little things.
What are you up to girl? Or… boy!
