Life Last Week #2016-23
I'm behind as usual so bear with me. My new job is fabulous but incredibly busy - there are people in and out of our office all day, all bearing things for me to read or reformat or process before they can go on to the next step. I'm not complaining, I love the pace but I'm pretty tired when I get home and that just doesn't leave a whole lot of time for anything else. What I need is an organization intervention! I've always considered myself an organized person but I'm spending a lot of productive time being un-productive (ie. watching Netflix) and that has to change.
Apart from my Netflix addiction, I've been keeping busy with chores, errands, and grocery shopping or picking up a quick takeaway so the Whole 30 has flown out the window. There's been a battle royal among the Navy Wives which was unpleasant but I think it's over now which is good because I hate any kind of conflict.
I've also been spending a lot of time on my favorite royalty sites because it's been an amazing week - the church service for the Queen's 90th birthday, followed by her official birthday celebration - Trooping the Colour - then the Patron's Lunch and on to the Garter Ceremony which leads right into Ascot. Oh my goodness, the hats, the clothes, the jewels - fabulous! I'll try and get a post up at some point with a few of my favorites.
Sophia was here off and on before she headed to camp for the summer leaving MudLynn with me so an evening constitutional after dinner is part of every day now. So far we've only been rained on once.
I'm also spending a lot of time thinking about Christmas in July. Our Admin, Ginger, on the Magical Holiday Home Forums has a lot of demands on her time this year so she won't be heading up the planning. I'm hoping that someone else will step up to organize some themes so that we can get rolling on July 1. I've also joined (I know...no, no, no, Pamela, no more!) a new Facebook group for Christmas Planner Addicts so I'm working my way through some amazing posts about Christmas planners. I've always used a three-ring notebook but I'm going with a smaller one this year, just haven't decided which one.
Have a great week, everyone, and I'll try to get at least a little something up each day.
