Planning the week ahead

So, um, yeah, it's Monday afternoon, and I'm just now planning the week ahead. If that's not a sign of the status of things in my life, I don't know what is. Y'all, I'm the hamster on the wheel who isn't getting anywhere. At least that's what it feels like some days. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's feeling that way, so there's comfort in that. (Or that's what I'm telling myself.)

After looking at my planning from last week, I just had to laugh. Oh  yeah, I have these huge, amazing, grand plans of what I'm going to accomplish each day. But if I'm being totally real, about 1/4 of it actually gets done when I say it will. In light of that truth, I thought I'd try to be a bit more realistic about my plans for this week.

On a more positive note, I did finally finish decorating my Christmas tree.
