Goals for 2016

I don't really make New Years Resolutions anymore, but I do try to set some goals. Keeping it simple this year.

1. Health~Try to take care of myself better. Since I have chronic fatigue & fibro, I need to get more rest & eat a little better. I'm busy trying to take care of everyone else that I don't get to do things for my own health. Like doing some yoga stretches before bed & soaking my feet in epsom salt. I want to get on more of a routine with this stuff. It seems like lots of times things seem to come up, where Tara goes to bed later & Anthony gets home from work late & then things get off of schedule. I want to keep trying to find things that work for me with the fatigue & fibro & how to get through the day.
2. Schedules~I want to have a cleaning schedule & meal plans each week. I got off track with that too.
3. Organizing~Keep getting rid of clutter. Go through stacks of paper & get rid of clothes & magazines more often.

Shopping Day

So we went shopping today. We had to return some pjs that didn't fit. We also went to Target & got some marked down X-mas stuff. We got some wrapping paper & some cards, I'm so happy that christmas is over for another year, At Target I got some marked down X-mas stuff.

At Kohls, I was trying to decide if I should get this palette. I've been thinking of Too Faced Semi-Sweet & Lorac unzipped too. So I'm still deciding.

Got the Holiday edition Baby Lips. Cocoa Crush & Quenched.

Thinking of Summer

The other night we were watching HGTV & they had a show called Tiny Houses on. The guy was looking at houses in Rockport, MA & Hampton beach, NH. 2 of my fave places to go in the summer. So now I am dreaming of Summer. Not that Winter has even been that bad yet. No snow & it's been in the 50's. Thinking about those places makes me really happy. So I'm thinking of doing my Summer "to-do" list a little early.

Book time

I'm just getting ready to go to bed & read my new book. It's my fave time of the day. I like to unwind that way. I'm reading "Fatal Fixer-Upper" by Jennie Bentley. Hopefully I'll like this 1.

Stuff & Things

*Christmas is getting so close & I'm kind of panicking. I'm not sure why I'm panicking because we only have a few presents to buy this weekend. Tara is counting down & so excited & as she's counting down I'm thinking, yay it will all be over soon. Just not feeling the Christmas spirit this year. I am looking forward to her opening her gifts & seeing Kizmet playing with her new gifts.
* I finally finished the book that I've been ready for the past few months, called "Remnants of Murder" by Elizabeth Lynn Casey. I'm kind of glad to be done with the book. It wasn't all that exciting. Even though there was a murder.
* I haven't been doing much shopping lately. I know a shocker huh? Just haven't felt like dealing with crowds & noise & all that other stuff that gets us fibro people going. I was thinking of trying to go to Target & Barnes & Noble tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I will or not.

Messy House No More

Lately I've been feeling totally overwelmed. Since I have fibromyalgia & Chronic fatigue, it's so hard for me to do anything. Our house is so cluttered that it's really depressing. I really want to start doing a to-do list for each day & start getting rid of stuff. Stacks of papers & magazines, messy drawers, letters, photos etc... The Drama Queen is a hoarder & you can barely walk around in her room. I can't keep my stuff organized & in order, so it's hard having to keep up with her stuff too. I know it can be done, it just might take a while. Hoping to find the energy to get the house in order.

8 Years Living in New Hampshire

Today is our 8 year anniversary of living in New Hampshire. Our town has changed so much in the past few years. Even just the past year. They cut down a bunch of trees on the main road, I'm not really a fan of cutting down trees. I think they will probably put up some more businesses & buildings, which is kind of sad. Our town has grown a lot & built up the past few years. I'm curious to see what other changes will happen over the next few years.

New England Minute~Town Tree lighting

We went to our town tree lighting today. It was pretty nice out today too. We had 1 year that it was snowing out & last year it rained, so I skipped it, but T & Anthony went.

They do this bonfire every year. I had a chocolate cookie & a hot chocolate.

Tara enjoying her cookie & hot choc.

There is a band in the tent, they play Christmas songs every year.

I finally saw the actual tree lit up this year. I think we always miss it because we are across the street having a free spaghetti dinner. The tree isn't all that exciting & this pic isn't great because it was so dark out. I kind of wish they would do a little more decorating. I love lights.

This is the gazebo.

Nail Files. Week # 234

I forgot to post this last week. I only had this color on for a few days because it is 1 of those scratchy sandpaper textures. I didn't know that when I bought it. It looks pretty in the bottle. It matched my sweater pretty good that day too. haha. It's Wet N' Wild Coloricon Nail color in Los Feliz Navidad. It look so pretty in the bottle.

This week I've had on Sally Hansen Miracle Gel~Bordeaux Glow. I think it's great for this time of year.

Stuff and Things

* First off, I am still sick. I've been staying inside & resting for the past few days. I did a little cleaning yesterday & would like to organize a bit today. Hoping to feel good enough tomorrow to get out & do a few errands. I need to get to the post office & the library.
* More sad news/shootings this past week. Colorado & then San Bernadino. It scares me for our children & our future. So I thought I would post a few happy things that I have seen online lately.
