Happy Friday, everyone! This week has seemed long and short at the same time. While a lot has happened, it has certainly flown by.
1). It makes me a little nervous that it’s December 4, and I have not even remotely finished my Christmas shopping. But then again, I think I feel like this every year and somehow it all works out.
2). My neck is still hurting from the wreck I had a couple of weeks ago. I went to a massage therapist which helped tremendously, but it’s still annoying me. A painful neck is not conducive to working on the computer a lot. Ugh.
3). One of my closest friends in the world is coming into town briefly this weekend. We were inseparable in graduate school and have remained close throughout the years. She lives in New York with her husband so I don’t see her nearly enough. I will only get to hang out for a little while this evening, but I can’t wait!
4). Yesterday it finally felt like winter and that helped me get into the Christmas spirit. We haven’t gotten our tree because our Thanksgiving week was absolutely jammed with activity, but we did pack up all of our fall directions last night. We were getting playfully harassed by our Elf on the Shelf, Frisbee, about not having any red and green in our house, so even though we don’t have our tree, we at least have some other Christmas decorations out.
5). Have any of you ever heard of the Bullet Journal system. My friend and colleague, Melanie Williams, told me about it. She and I both love journals, note taking, making lists, planning, jotting down quotes, etc. and this system appears to streamline all of that and make goal setting/achieving much more successful. She and I both ordered the journal they suggest. I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going. I’m super excited about it. I know. I’m a dork.
