Does anyone else feel like the holiday season is flying by? Christmas is in just 9 days! 😯 How the heck did that happen!?!
Last year, I felt like I had plenty of time to enjoy the holidays. Check out how many fun and festive things I did! I really loved my post where I reminisced about Christmas tree ornaments, so I decided to do it again this year.
Here are some of my favorites:
Our First Christmas, 2008
My mom gave Mal and me this ornament for our first Christmas as a married couple.
Glitter snowflake, 2006
Mal and I didn’t have any ornaments for our first Christmas tree together, so we bought a 4-pack of glittery snowflakes to start our collection.
Wally the Green Monster, 2007
I gave this ornament to Mal a couple of years ago. He’s a huge Red Sox fan. It’s just cute.
And we have just a few pug ornaments.
Well, actually, we have 24.
Anyway, my mom gave me a SET of 24 pug ornaments for Christmas last year, so now our tree is well-decorated with my favorite curly tail creatures.
Well, breakfast was actually a pre-gym snack this morning. I’ve decided to change my morning schedule, so my meals might be a little wacky every now and then until April 1 (when the first draft of my book is due).
Yesterday, I spoke with a writing coach (thanks, Dawn!), who suggested blocking off 1.5 hours every morning to just write, which means that I will flip-flop my normal routine. My new plan is to wake up at 5:00 AM to write for 1.5 hours and then hit the gym for a workout. Breakfast and blogging will fit in there somewhere! Hopefully, this plan will work better for me and I’ll squeeze in some much-needed writing time.
Around 6:30, I made myself a piece of toast with Barney Butter to help fuel my workout.
And, from 5:00 – 6:30 this morning, I drank 1.5 glasses of iced coffee. Early-morning writers NEED coffee!
