i am having “post-new york city-stress-disorder”.
i can’t get myself back in the game! i can’t focus… i am unmotivated. tired. behind on everything!
i did CLEAN MY CLOSET today. and put all HALLOWEEN DECOR AWAY! (yea- fun to get out; funner to PUT AWAY). WASHED my sheets… i LOVE clean sheets. and i did laundry, hit the grocery store and target…. and even with all that… i don’t feel like i got anywhere on my ‘to do’ list.
i did eat THAI tonight. such good food! ate at MINT THAI tonight. it’s on Gilbert/Baseline if you are ever in town! so yummy.
with halloween down…it only means ONE thing: time to start thinking about the christmas card. no ideas yet… so the brainstorming has begun. it’s what i enjoy most about christmas.
christmas time stresses me out. so a friend of mine challenged me to figure out a way to make christmas FUN. (is that possible?) i love what we celebrate… i don’t like how stressed it seems to make me. every year. (my anniversary is the 21st and eric’s birthday is the 22nd.. that adds to the stress too!) so…i am accepting the challenge. it probably won’t surprise you that i put off my christmas purchases until like christmas eve. (could that be causing the stress???????) i am such a ‘driven by deadlines’ girl… and fake deadlines don’t work… cause i know they are fake. hmmm.
so… i am also brainstorming about that.
the cooler weather is so awesome…i love to see the kids playing outside! colton got a basketball hoop for his birthday… so that has been so fun. they were even in the pool today… seems too cold for that to me! i think it was in like the low 80’s today! the cooler weather sure makes exercising more enjoyable. it’s a beautifiul time of year here in AZ!
i splurged and bought ‘bewitched’ on DVD… so i am going to watch that and scrapbook!
tomorrorw i am heading over to florida for a couple days… planning meeting… just can’t wait to fly back across the country! so i am going to stay up all night so i can sleep on the plane!
