I can’t believe this is the last month of 2015. It feels like the year just flew by so fast! I did good with my goals from November. I sorted quite a few of the unread books on my Kindle but that goal will be rolling over to this month. I planned and hosted Thanksgiving. We started our master bathroom renovation. We pulled the nasty gold shower door off and that’s as far as we got. The shower is functional and honestly right now that’s all I care about. I added a bunch of new recipes to my Key Ingredient app. We kind of celebrated Ty and Maia’s birthdays. Both were sick on their actual birthdays so we did small celebrations when they felt better.
1- Stick to my Christmas budget- I’m the worst at sticking to a Christmas budget. I always find more stuff to buy. This year I’m determined to stick to both my list and my budget.
2- Slow down and enjoy the season- I’ve already turned down several invitations and I plan to turn down some more. I want to enjoy the Christmas season and not stress out about my social awkwardness at various parties and events.
3- Finish sorting the books on my Kindle- I had no idea just how many unread books I have on my Kindle. It’s alarming. I sorted a good many of them but I still have some left to do.
4- Have at least 2 family movie nights- Christmas movies are my favorite and I can’t wait to make some delicious Grinch popcorn and watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with the family!
5- Clean out & donate old toys and books before Christmas- I donated a lot earlier this year but I want to take one more pass through the kids’ rooms and weed out anything else I can before Santa shows up with more toys.
