Here we are…the last week of the year! The church that I work for generously gave us this week off. I look forward to this time every year as it is a time to unwind and refocus myself for the next year. Holidays on the church calendar are a busier time as we are ramping up to prepare for special services. As a result, the week off after Christmas always comes at a great time! I am ready for it!
Here are some things I plan on doing this week.
- Spending some quality time with Rochelle and Madelynn!
- Getting back to working out.
- Setting goals for the new year.
- Maybe take a nap or two (somehow I just don’t feel guilty about saying that…wow).
- Watch football!
- Go shopping with Rochelle and Madelynn
- Hitting up Starbucks a time or two (Avoiding Starbucks during a week like this is against my convictions).
- Playing games (You know the usuals…Rummikub, Train Dominos, Euchre, Dutch Blitz and the like).
- Brainstorming some quality blog posts for the new year.
- Attempt to wear all of my Christmas presents at one time. Wait a minute…I did that yesterday!
- Just have fun!
This blog is not just a place for me to record my thoughts. If I wanted to do that I would journal my thoughts in a cool notebook somewhere. This place is a place of accountability for me. When I write something down here I feel that it is more permanent. In addition, other people have read it, which means that if I say something here I need to follow through. I also want to give you some ideas of what you could do as this year comes to a close.
I want to make the best of the final week of the year and not waste it, which is why I go in having a plan. What do you do at the end of the year to get ready for the next one? Leave your ideas in the comments. Your comments could begin some new disciplines for all of us. Can’t wait to hear them!
I will not be posting as often this week as I will be spending more time looking ahead and relaxing. I encourage you to do the same. There will probably be only one more post before the end of the year. It is my annual, “The Best of 2010.” See you then!
