It's the most wonderful time of the year!
And also the most busy, it seems.
I've been 'off' lately, not necessarily in a bad way, just different from my usual self. I'm okay with it. I'm actually kind of liking this 'new' self.
I've been much more attentive to detail lately.
I've become anal about picking up the house during the day and before bed. I've found that waking up to a clean house is much nicer than tripping over hotwheels on your way to the bathroom in the morning.
I've been adamant about meal-planning. I usually try to meal-plan at least a little before I go to the grocery, but this week I have meals planned for two weeks out. Sides, drinks, everything. I've even started a list for Christmas dinner... shocking I know!!
I've also been cleaning and organizing like a mad-woman. If I were pregnant, I'd say that baby was due any day now because it's been very similar to how I felt when I was 'nesting'. Let's just say that this spring we are having one hell of a garage sale. I'm so over having so much...stuff.
I've also gotten back into the swing of putting on make-up and doing my hair pretty much every day. I haven't done this in almost two years. TWO YEARS. I think mothering is finally beginning to kick my butt a little less each day.
Mentioning, I've also been eating less. Like...forgetting to eat entire meals until it's time for the NEXT meal. This is totally unlike me. But again...totally not complaining! Haha!
Overall, I've been kicking life's butt. I've gotten things done and I've looked good doing it. It's nice. Hopefully this is a new, permanent change...and not something that's just going to fizzle out.
