Not too much is happening here this week. I'm using this week to evaluate 2021 and plan for 2022.

Household Checklist

  • Minimum maintenance.

Holiday Prep Checklist

  • Decorate for New Year's. - I have some gold and silver balloons left over from a birthday party that we might use.
  • Put away the Advent calendar, Advent wreath, O Antiphons, and Jesse Tree.
  • Put away Christmas kitchen gear.
  • Work on Word of the Year goals.
  • Write a plan for my health goals, genealogy goals, and spiritual goals.
  • Set up Monthly Journal.
  • What worked/didn't work this year?

What worked?
  • Meal planning and having some dinners prepared and put in the freezer always helps.
  • Wrapping as I bought gifts and then labeling the gifts right away saved me so much hassle this year. This was a year in which I noticed a huge difference because of a December death in the family.
  • Have a detailed list of things to do by each week in November and December helped with delegation of work for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was also beneficial because I could read a list of things to do when I was walking around in a state of shock. I didn't need to think much more than that.
What didn't work?
  • Unexpected requests were made that took more time and energy than I thought it would. These were things that I didn't feel like I could say no to doing because family needed me. In hindsight, if this were to happen again at my busy time which is September through December, I would set boundaries without guilt. This would have helped me tremendously.
  • I only sent the cards that were written and addressed at the beginning of October. Nothing else got done from that point on.
  • Not finding time to do a weekly journal in the final weeks made it hard for me to process all that was happening around me. I need to find a different day and time when interruptions are minimal.
