I can relate to this time crunch. December is very busy with additional practice for Christmas concerts and the concerts themselves. I really don't have as much time in the evenings and weekends as I think.

Great to see you here!

For this upcoming week, I'm okay if I don't get to the cleaning since I just did a good overall cleaning on Wednesday. My focus on Sunday and Monday, which is a work holiday, is to wrap as many gifts as possible. Wednesday and Friday evenings will be two other wrapping nights. I have tentative plans for next weekend. However, if they fall through, then I'll wrap on those days.

  • Exercise
  • Prayer
  • Calendar Review of Appointments/Meetings
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Coffee Prep for the next day
  • Lunch Prep for the next day
  • Breakfast Prep for the next day

Weekly:
  • Outfit Planning for this week
  • Menu Planning for this week
  • Meal Prep for this week
  • Dust/Vacuum/Mop
  • Bills
  • Laundry
  • Groceries
  • End of Last Week Reflection
Monthly:

I am so glad that I work at this year round, I don't know how I would be situated if I was just starting now. I am like you, feeling the crunch a little.
