Weekly Wishes, the one with rock and roll and cooties

The Nectar Collective

I'm so happy Melyssa from The Nectar Collective came up with this link up! It's a great way to list your to-do list online, and hold yourself accountable!

1. Blog like crazy! I will admit, I've been pushing this blog further and further down the list of priorities, and that's not fair to you readers! So, I've thought about how to do this, and if I can devote a couple of good, no distraction hours to blogging, I think I can get a week's worth of posts ready to go. We will see how this goes this week, and hopefully I can go back to posting 5 days a week. I know that I must finish the Europe tour because that is so fun to post about! I can't wait to get back across the pond!

2. Sew like crazy! I have about 25 yards of this Blackhawk fabric, and plan to do ear warmers with fleece! Such a nice gift and I know they will sell out fast. The problem is, I have to hand make each and every one of them! And, I want to do it where I have enough stock to last throughout the Holiday/Christmas rush. It would make the perfect gift for a Blackhawk fan! Keep checking on my Etsy Store (here) for them to be listed!  

3. Learn to juggle a new schedule. I love plans, lists, schedules, and when anything gets messed up, I completely freak out... OK, maybe not completelyfreak out, but it's bothersome. Now that I have to recognize what tires me out, what stresses me out, how I feel, it makes me focus on the pain and I now have to juggle things around because I don't know how I will feel in the mornings vs. the afternoons. It's so hard dealing with this Fibro. that I just want to scream and cry most days. So, learning to juggle a schedule and my to-do list based on how I feel is pretty crappy, I don't like it, but if I want to be able to get anything accomplished, it's a necessary evil.

4. Do & post new crafts!  It's been a while since I shared any crafts with you guys, and I miss doing crafts for fun and sharing them! It's time to do more for you! Plus, crafts are a huge stress relief for me, so it's perfect! Be on the look out for that!

5.  Find time for reading. Blogging and my bible study have been pushed down this list. I know, I know.... that can't happen! So, I will work on the new schedule, and if I have to literally write down "Reading from 6pm-7pm" then I will do just that! I also want to focus on my photography more, but that can wait, my bible study and fun reading is more important! 

Well, I guess 2 out of 5 isn't that bad, it's not that good either, but it'll do! Just a couple extra to add to the list,

* Finish sewing quilts I have to finish sewing the quilts for Christmas presents, and that is going to be all day, every day until I finish. I have no idea why I wait until the last minute for these things! But, the good news is- besides the Secret Santa gifts, my holiday shopping is DONE! Wahoo! Now, I just need to wrap everything, or dump them into a gift bag, that always works!

* Get over this cold.  Yes, I have the cooties now. I don't know where the germs came from, but I went from rocking and rolling last week to stopped in my tracks this week, no good! If you pray, please pray that the cooties leave me fast!

AND that's it! The holidays are always so stressful, and that really bums me out! Hopefully, I can work hard the next couple of weeks, and be able to sit back and actually enjoy what the Christmas holiday really is all about, Christ!

How do you get through the rush of the Holidays? Comment below!


  1. Ugh! Feel better!
    You have a productive week.

  2. Good luck with your goals. I'm having a hard time making time to read. I try to read my bible though not always successfully. I like that you've carved out the time to read, such an excellent idea.
    Hope you feel better soon.

  3. We rush though the Holidays usually by trying to see all our family. This year since we are overseas, we will only see my Dad for the Holidays. He flies in Christmas eve. So our Holidays are going to be jammed packed with trying to show Dad the most of Australia in two weeks.
