If you’re like me, you’ve got a lot on your plate right now. My kids have holiday events at school and we have a list of fun Christmas activities we want to do as a family. Plus, I’ve got to travel away from the family for a few days at the beginning of the month. I’m getting everyone organized with schedules and food so they can survive without me. Be sure to take a few minutes to sit down and plan out your month so that you don’t miss anything. Also, try not to wait until the last minute to get done what you can do today! No really, just do it!! You’ll be glad you did. Also, you don’t need to do EVERYTHING! Pick a couple things you and your family really enjoy doing and make sure those get on the calendar. Other activities can be added if there’s time. Here’s to a busy fun-filled month!
