Busy Weekend

I had a busy, but fun weekend. Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I got caught up with out chores, and our meal plan. We also cleaned up a little bit.

Then on Sunday we spent the day relaxing by watching football, which is always fun.

On Monday, I had the pleasure of babysitting my niece. That was a lot of fun. That was the first time her and I got to spend a lot of time together.

Then today, I cleaned up some more, and made a delicious soup in the crock pot. I’ll be posting the recipe soon.

The weekend that I spent cleaning and catching up on chores was definitely needed and beneficial to me.

Why We Should Make Resolutions in October

I’m not sure how many of you make New Year’s Resolutions, but if you do, here’s an interesting approach.

I think the perfect time to make New Year’s Resolutions is October, think about, you are starting a second month of changes. Perhaps you are a parent and you have children that attend school. You might not have had a perfect month of smooth sailing, because perhaps the children weren’t ready to go back to school from their summer vacation. But now that they have a month of getting into the swing of things, they are able to make improvements.

Another reason why October is the perfect month to start resolutions, is that sometimes January is too daunting, or too much pressure to start anything new. Most people believe that starting to make changes in January, becomes too pressurized. It’s almost like the time where you buy yourself this cool journal, and you are too nervous to use it because you are scared to make a mistake in it.

Another reason why October is the perfect time to make resolutions is that more likely, whichever country you are in, you are in the transition of welcoming another season. I’m not sure, but a lot of people do seasonally chores, so your house is already freshened up, so will you. The end of the previous season is the beginning of a new season.

These are my reasons as to why I think October is the ideal time to make resolutions instead of waiting until January.

I would love to hear from you! If you make any resolutions, what do you normally like to change? And did I convince you to make New Year’s Resolutions in October?

Taking Control

I feel quite proud of myself of all the things I was able to accomplish!

This morning, I got a good night sleep, I made my boyfriend and I breakfast -toast with peanut butter and bananas with berry multi-grain oatmeal, followed with a cup of hot chocolate (mind you that wasn’t as healthy) so we made up by having a glass of orange juice.

Then I washed all the dishes at my boyfriend’s, I then tidied up our room. Then I wrote a note to my boyfriend like I always do when I leave after he goes to work.

My mama came and picked me up we made dinner together and I cleaned up and washed the dishes. Afterwards I went for a shower and then did a load of laundry and put it away.

I ended the day with some writing and reading. I also wrote a few (realistic) tasks that I wish to achieve tomorrow.

Today, I will believe in myself and tell myself that anything is possible. All I need to do is to take control of what I wish to do.

Sleep

Today I had to catch up on my sleep since I’ve been really tired. I ended up sleeping for 12 hours. It was grand.

I’m still sleepy though so I’m going to back to bed soon. I did manage to do a few things around the house.

Today, I will catch up on my sleep.

Sharing Chores

I spend a lot of my time at my boyfriend’s house. Even though I don’t always financially contribute to rent, or other bills like that, I try my best to contribute by cleaning. On the occasion I have made meals for his brother and their mama but the majority of the time it’s just for my boyfriend and I. They don’t mind.

We’ve been trying to split the jobs that need to be done but some days it can be difficult.Every Tuesday I always wash the dishes.

Today, I will try my best to contribute in some way every day.

Being Productive

Today I woke up early, got my morning walk in and did many chores today. Even though I didn’t finish all that I had planned to do but the fact that I did, I still feel like I accomplished something which makes me proud.

It also motivates me to continue accomplishing things tomorrow as well.

Today, I will make a list of things I would like to achieve and check the twice!

One Thing – Productivity

Even though my first hour after waking up wasn’t that productive since I was repeatedly pressing snooze. I tried to stay up to talk to my boyfriend after he finished work but he worked too long so I fell asleep.

Anyway, I woke up and put a load of laundry on and then after my clothes were in the dryer, I gathered up the garbage, then went for a shower and had breakfast before going to work.

I prefer completing my chores in the morning and reserving my evenings for leisure.
