I’ve been two steps behind on everything for the past few months. It’s an odd thing, but the busier I am the more organized I am and the more work I accomplish.
Take this past summer. Kelly was bike racing and training with a club, meaning he was gone from home some workdays for 16 hours. I’d walk Harry twice a day, work a full day, make supper and lunches, and get in my own training. On weekends I’d stick to my house cleaning schedule and always had healthy, home-baked muffins and fuel for us.
Fast forward to fall and winter: I bake muffins every few weeks if we’re lucky, Harry rarely walks (his choosing when it’s cold!), and my house cleaning is no longer on a perfected schedule. Is anyone else way more productive when they’re busy?
Well, this weekend I took a step in the right direction. We had a Christmas party on Saturday night and I finally got in the holiday spirit!
So when Sunday morning rolled around I took advantage. I set up our Christmas tree, hung our stockings, and made our house festive!
This is the first time ever I’ve decorated the tree. I usually coerce my mom or sister into doing it for us!
I love our travel tree. We put a few new ornaments on it this year: China, Coeur d’Alene, Whistler, and New Orleans.
And to top it off, I baked muffins so we have a hint of cinnamon aroma wafting throughout the house.
When did you decorate? Are you better with a schedule when you’re busy?
