Move along now, holiday season.
Is anyone else trying to catch up from the holidays? I feel like I put everything that I could put on hold during December on that proverbial back burner, and now it’s time to sort through it and get to it! Except I am feeling so crazy overwhelmed by my to-do list, I almost can’t remember what all I need to do.
I’m that person who always want to be super organized, but just isn’t. I know that this is just not who I am, so I roll with it, and plan to be the most organized that I can be, but I will never be that person who has the perfectly sorted rooms with cute and stylish baskets or whatnot, all with labels, that make the room look like it belongs in a decorating magazine. Although, that would be cool. I did however, start a mission last year to minimize our possessions, and I have slowly been going room by room. Very slowly, but it’s getting there. Having less stuff makes it easier to organize – obviously. Lol. And it does feel sort of liberating and cleansing to not be so weighed down by stuff. I could be a hoarder, perhaps, if I allowed it to happen. Now I just throw it in a bag or a box and drive it immediately to the donation center. Done and done.
But back to the now of catching up. I need to work on my business, get started on various projects, schedule appointments, figure out what books I am behind on reading and reviewing for my book review blog (quite a few!), stuff I want to do with this blog, and finish my office, which is currently housing boxes and boxes of books that I need to figure out what to do with, and cat items. The room is literally devoted to books and cats right now, there is no room for me. I need to reclaim some of the space (as we know the cats will not allow me the entire room now, after all this time) – as much as I love my bedroom, it is not the most conducive to working. More to getting really cozy and then maybe napping. Which unfortunately is not super productive.
Thankfully, my Passion Planner arrived. (not a affiliate link at all, I just love mine!) I love everything about it. I have so much I need to keep track of, most especially little man’s appointments! There are so many. He has a neurology appointment coming up, and I thought I had the date memorized, but when I went to write it in my planner, I found that the day was a Sunday, which I knew could not be right! I called, and found I had the right number date, but wrong month! See why I need a calendar? Lol. Lately, I always have three things close to hand – my planner, my notebook, and my pen case.
Anyone else in the throes of catching up from the holidays? What are your tips? How do you keep track of all you need to do with all the your roles in life?
