A Different Kind Of Busy

This is the first year since 2014 that we're not baking Holiday Bodacious Biscuit Love. Over the past month, I've received countless emails and private messages from people who have ordered in the past. I feel guilty letting them down, however, as quoted from a previous blog column, "I'm taking the month of December. To do. Make. Create. Bake. Give. Work. Learn. Grow. Reflect. Focus. Spread some love. Make changes. Stand my ground. Be ready for 2019."

That's exactly what I've done so far this month...

What all of that translates to is that when my favorite week out of the entire year rolls around, I'm not going to be exhausted and stressed out to the point where I don't want to create beautiful gifts for people and bake.

My favorite week out of the year is the week before Christmas.

When I've tried to explain this shift in focus to people, I've been met with a similar response of, "Oh, so you're going to take it easy this month...?"

Um. No.

Shifting my focus doesn't mean that I'm going to be any less busy this month.

In fact, I'm going to be busier.

But, it's going to be a different kind of busy.

For the entire month of December, we're extending Bodacious Holiday Love and Cheer every day. In addition, I'm making a lot of really incredible gifts for the special people in our lives.

Also, instead of spending one entire day baking cookies and confections, I'm now able to break that up into a few days, spread apart, so more people on our list will receive fresh baked goodies at various times.

All of the above is in addition to my Work at Home Dog Mom stuff and daily tasks like housework and meal prep and whatever else needs to be done.

Yesterday, we shipped out a few Bodacious Holiday Love and Cheer packages. We've got lots more to ship and deliver in the days ahead.

Aside from the making and baking and Work and Home Dog Mom stuff, I have a lot of desk work to do to prepare for 2019. Online. I'd like to update my blog sites, social media pages, and everything between. That's no easy feat.

It's safe to say all of that will be done the week between Christmas and New Years Day.

Lots of work in a relatively short period of time.

I've got this.
