Each year I pray for a clam and relaxing holiday season, but that has yet to happen. Thinking about it now though, I almost am happy for the chaos of it all. I'm the girl that never likes to slow down. If I'm not constantly muliti-tasking or working on something new, I get bored. Me being bored is bad....it means that I go from being productive Kellie to barely moving, didn't even take the time to get out of my pjs Kellie. So this year, I am going to appreciate the craziness that comes with this season. I am going to work hard on my to-do lists, but not beat myself up when I don't get to them all. And most of all, I am going to have fun with every single item.
So here's my current to do list. I can't wait to share the ooutcome of them with yall later. :)
-work on a couple guest blog posts (in progress)
-find some awesome postcards to send out (for the postcrossing project)
-finish replying to all my pen pal letters (Check)
-finish creating the new pen pals lists
-finish Christmas shopping (trying it do it mostly via etsy)
-make some handmade goodies for the christmas swap project (in progress)
-reread my classroom management books to prepare for January
-work on my daily Christmas advent goals (in progress)
-make some cute and baked goodies for holiday gifts
-buy tons of Christmas cards

-doctor’s appointment to figure out what the crap is going on with me..... my stomach pain is still there, a bit better, but still present. I’ve completely given up trying to stay away from specific foods, because these days it’s completely random. (I do want to thank everyone for their sweet comments on this topic from before...it means a lot to me that yall care and share with me what you or loved ones have been through and what helped. So thank you!!!!)
Oh- and Happy Friday!!!!!
