I have had less time to be on Spark recently. I had to edit the work Christmas Card mailing list, fold the cards, stuff envelopes, postmark them & print the labels. Once I am done that, I am going to start with the end of the year tax organizers. The extra work is making the days go by faster, but I am also tired when I leave work now. It will get even busier once I start my training for the new position - then tax season will be here before I know it!
Even now, I have less time to Spark. I feel like I am missing out on a lot of good blogs from you awesome Sparkfriends. I miss reading them! It will be tough keeping up with these two challenges - I can feel it. At least in the one, I am an honorary member - I still want to do a good job so hopefully I can be in their Spring challenge!
Once tax season starts, some days I will be working 8:30am to 8 pm. That means even less time for Sparking!! Hmm... I will have to start bringing lunch and dinner with me. Yikes. I may need two lunch boxes or one bigger one! The fridge is small here, so it will be tough fitting my food in there. The bosses buy us dinner when we work late, but I don't want to get paninis and salad every night. I enjoy variety in my food choices.
There are a few more things I need to get for Christmas. I feel the Christmas pressure hitting me! I need to get the ingredients for the Hot Chocolate Mix I want to make. I also need to pick up the chocolate to melt so I can try making the chocolate covered plastic spoons! At least I don't need those right away - but the sooner I get it, the less stressed I will be. My payday is today, so I can go out this week & weekend and finish my shopping.
I have my work Christmas party Friday & a friend's holiday party on Saturday. It will be tough with my food this weekend. I won't cave in to the bad foods, but I may not get enough good foods. I still need to figure out what to bring to the holiday party - I need to skim through the Spark recipes & find somethin healthy and yummy! I bought a new outfit to wear to the work Christmas party. I got a frilly shirt & a skirt! I barely ever wear skirts. I checked with my Mom to make sure the outfit looks ok together haha. Black & white striped shirt with a red skirt. Hopefully it is presentable enough!!!!!
My calves are still super sore today - even to the touch. Hopefully they heal up by Friday so I can dance at the Christmas Party =)
Hopefully everyone has a great rest of the week. Good luck to everyone with any holiday festivities you may have! Keep Sparking!
