Well, we made it back to San Antonio safe and sound from our road trip to Albuquerque visiting family and friends. It’s still our “hometown” considering that my husband and I both grew up there and lived there until 5 years ago when we moved to TX. Lots of great food, fun times with family and friends…we had a fantastic week-long vacation. Now I’m sitting here trying to figure out just exactly what “list” to start first. Luckily I stayed on top of the laundry while staying at my in-laws, which made things a whole lot easier on this end. I had to take a step back a few minutes ago because just the thought of my “to-do’s”, both personal and business, were getting me a little worked up…okay, more like “cranky.” There’s the decorations for the tree and the rest of the house, and the emails I need to respond to, and the Christmas cards that don’t have a picture yet…but I stopped myself and realized that the best thing I could do was get out my calendar. So, going back to those lists I’m able to see what is a priority to me and my family and begin to plug it in on my calendar. Of course there are a lot of “want-to’s”, but we’ll have to see if those make the cut this year. I do know that baking is a high priority. It’s something I have always loved to do and with little guys running around has been something over the last 6 years that I have pushed aside. I have to chuckle a little at myself since all the things I’m reminding myself to do like; make a list, put things on the calendar, and “take-a-breath” are all the things I work with my clients on when I help them to organize their own lives. It’s a good thing that organizing has nothing to do with perfection and everything to do with functionality. Perfection is NOT my middle name!
