Only 25 days until Christmas. Can you believe it? This year, I wanted to start early on my resolutions. I don't want to completely let everything go, like I usually do during the holidays. So that's why I've put together this schedule to follow until Christmas. Like I said before in my last post, I want to equally incorporate mind, body, soul, and family over the next 25 days. So hear is what I came up with.
Dec. 1st and 2nd
First of all, I wanted to start out the month with a couple of cleanse days. I'm very passionate about cleansing, because what it has done for me. It's the perfect way to start anything I believe. You get your mind on track, increase you're energy, get your weight in check, and just feel amazing. I know there are a lot of different cleanses out there, so do the one you like most. I've tried a few and have found one that works the best for me. Click HERE for more information.
Start a new educational book. The one I plan to read is called, Parenting With Love and Logic, by Foster Cline, M.D. & Jim Fay. I hope to develop some parenting skills, lol. Sometimes I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, and pray to God that my kids will turn out okay.
Do a fun Christmas craft with the kids. This one looked fun. I love the smell of Cinnamon around Christmas, and it looks simple enough for me:) We'll see if I can pull it off.
Start taking a class on something of interest. I'm thinking something that only requires an hour or two a week. I don't want to take too much time away from my family, but I thought it would be fun, and a nice break. I recently found out about a place just down the street from me called Picture Line. It's a photography shop that sells all kinds of fun stuff, they also offer free classes with tips on how to use your camera's. So, I plan to try a few of those classes.
Find a service project to do with the kids. I thought that this could tie into December 4th's task. If the craft turns out okay, you can give them away to friends or neighbors. I plan to make a special trip to my Grandpa's house. I know he loves visitors, so I thought I could go spend some time with him, bring him some dinner or lunch, and just enjoy the time with him. I'm also in the process of making a video of his life. I recently did an interview with him on video, I want to put it all together, with some of his childhood pictures, and some music. So, I want to begin this project as soon as possible. I'm hoping to have it finished before Christmas, and give the DVD's to family members as a gift. I'll post the video as soon as I'm done with it.
Do a fun activity with the whole family. I plan to take the whole family Ice Skating down town. We've never done this before, so I'm excited to try it out. We might have to leave Oliver with a babysitter though, it may be too cold to take him out.
Well, that covers the first week. I will continue the rest of this Schedule next Monday, but will still be writing each day, on how I'm doing :)
