Yeah, it’s the tenth of November and I’m just getting around to posting my goals. It happens. Being completely honest, the end of October and the beginning of this month have been rather tough for me. I’ve been dealing with anxiety issues (remember this ranting post?), and while I’m not quite ready to blog thoroughly about it, I am happy to say that for now I feel like I at least have a grip on things.
Unfortunately, pretty much every non-essential part of my life falls to pieces when anxiety takes over. It takes all my effort just to focus on the bare minimum, so my blog has taken a hit for the last couple weeks. I’m hoping to stay on track with it through the rest of November, especially because I have some fun posts/mini series I want to start! Because of that, my goals for November are pretty slim. I’m still kind of in the one-day-at-a-time mindset, and definitely don’t want to stress out my brain more with heaping on projects for the month!
- Finish three Christmas presents. Longshot goal is to have one of the three be one of the oil paintings I’m doing.
- Mail out invites to my daughter’s birthday party. In addition, get all the party plans finalized.
- POST. MY. BLOG. BUTTONS. Seriously, I’ve had them ready to go for WEEKS and for some reason haven’t just uploaded them to a widget yet.
- Begin my ‘Christmas On A Budget’ series. I need to nail down scheduling for it, mainly.
And I’m leaving it at that. Nothing overwhelming; all attainable goals. Ideally I will get more done that this, but at least if I get these thing accomplished I can end the month with all positives!

Sorry you’ve been feeling down lately. I noticed you weren’t blogging as much (or commenting… You usually comment a lot on my blog so I though 1. She hates me or 2. She must not be feeling well — I’m glad it’s not #2 lol!) anyways good luck with your goals this month. Can’t wait to read the budget series!
Thanks! Yeah, I definitely got behind on blog reading/commenting….it’s amazing how quickly it builds up! Definitely no hate here haha!
So sorry you’ve been dealing with anxiety. I, too, live in a brain with anxiety (and depression for extra fun), and I understand how life becomes about just functioning. I’m glad you’re starting to feel better. 😀
I’m super looking forward to your Christmas on a Budget series!
Anxiety brain is so frustrating!! I consider myself to be a rather logical person, and there is nothing worse than KNOWING I shouldn’t feel like I do, and still not being able to do anything about it! I feel I’m lucky in that it comes and goes…this just happened to be a particularly rough two weeks. Here’s hoping we both stay on top of keeping it in check! 😀
I’m glad to read you’re starting to feel a bit better! I spy a blog button on the sidebar, so you’ve already got one goal down. Awesome! Good luck with the rest of them. 🙂 Can’t wait for your Christmas on a Budget series.
Yeah! Glad you noticed. 😀 Finally got the darn things up.
