12 Days of Giving #1

Day one, and the challenge is: Give yourself a break.

Some of these challenges will be familiar if you participated last year, and there’s a reason for that. No, I’m not too lazy to come up with new ones, ;) It’s that these are the things I remind myself of every year, and when I start talking with people, this list is made of all the things that others need to be reminded of as well.

This challenge doesn’t require any money. As the holiday approaches we all have lists of things to do. Family dinners, shopping for presents, annual Christmas family update letters, children’s concerts, staff parties, white elephant gifts…

Is your blood pressure higher now than when you started reading? Sorry. The idea behind behind today’s challenge is for you think for just a moment about that to-do list. Are you doing some of these things simply out of habit? Are there things you used to do before you had babies/ toddlers/ teenagers eating you out of house and home? Are you doing them because you’re “supposed to”?

There are seasons for everything, even the fun things like Christmas cards. Give yourself permission to do the REALLY important things, and let one of the less important ones slide.

If there is one thing you could stop, what would it be? If there’s one important thing you need to start this year, what should it be?

Leave a comment about that if you’d like. I have three different calendars for 2013 to gift, so three winners. One wolves, one horses and one mountains, for my three main settings/series themes.

Make sure you’ve added your name to the first post for a chance to have me Gift your choice of Charity. Tomorrow I’ll have another challenge.

Presently many families search for the exact keyword ordering cialis online on the Internet. Perhaps you already read something about it. Having erectile disfunction can beyond doubt complicate romance. What can cause erectile dysfunction? A row of psychological issues can produce erectile dysfunction. What should you discuss with a physician before taking Cialis? Any medication may cause dangerous side effects. Sometimes side effects can be actually dangerous. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your medicine.

lol i gave up on all the stuff i used to do years ago when i realized it was a lot of work and no one cared if i did those things or not. Seriously crazy decorating which i learned from my mom. Now i am lucky if i get the tree up and that’s it. No cards this year either. December always seems to be a crazy month where a lot of things go wrong. Plus i work for the USPS once i get home from work i’m tapped out.

I would stop being the doormat for my kids. Seriously, I need to be able to tell them “NO” once in a while, they are adults, but they still whine when they don’t get their way. I am getting better, though

Start and stop? … Start exercising more regularly … and being better about taking care of my clothes XD … stop being late in the mornings. I’m a rusher – not a morning person for sure!

I am waiting for my doc to give me the ok after surgery but I need to go back to the gym. I want to take the time to make myself healthier and I have to start with exercise. I also need to bring healthier food into the house.
