How is it almost the end of the year? Have you started your holiday shopping? I have to admit that I’m almost done, and I feel really good about it. We have a few things left to get, but I am ahead of the game. What’s on your list? Has holiday shopping taken over your goals for November? I know the holidays have certainly overtaken mine even if it’s not about having to shop for the gifts. I’m excited to bake and be cheerful.
Were you able to achieve your October goals? I wasn’t. Okay, I finished some of them, but I wasn’t able to do it all.
As you know, I didn’t get a post up everyday in October. I got sick and then the baby got sick, and I fell behind. I already know I’ll be taking 2 days off this month for the holidays. Yep, I’m not working on Thanksgiving or Black Friday either ya’ll. I won’t be doing any shopping in stores though. I hate the idea of dealing with the insanity that is those crowds. I hate it, which is why I have never done it. More power to you if you’re going to get out in that, and I hope you find exactly what you’re out to get. What’s hot on your wish lists this year?
Being sick also caused me not to hit my step goal everyday, but I’d say we were closer this month than most. I am going to keep striving to be doing better at this. I’m excited when I feel the vibrating of my Fitbit to let me know I reached my goal.
I got the blog posts up from the Blended Conference. I was able to read 2 books. We finished our Halloween costumes just in time to do Boo at the Zoo in Knoxville. I’m still working on my elevator pitch, but I’ve gotten closer than ever before. I did keep the momentum from last month going so I have to thank all of ya’ll for keeping that going. I feel blessed that ya’ll read the things I put in this box. I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you too!
My goals for this month are:
- Blog every day this month except Thanksgiving and Black Friday
- Meet my daily step goal
- Read 2 books
- Finish my holiday shopping
- Wrap and ship those gifts that have to go out-of-town
- Keep the momentum going from last month
- Think of things to put on the Thanksgiving itinerary while the family is here in Asheville
Ya’ll I’m excited, and I hope you are too. Christmas carols are totally about to overtake my life. Let’s party! Tell me what is your favorite holiday tradition?
