Chill Day Report
I really needed that. I “opted out” of a bunch of things this week, mostly kids’ activities: extra soccer training sessions (C), gymnastics (A/G), tap (G), jazz (A). Our school calendar is not in line with Broward County this week most of the activities were all ‘business as usual’ when we are decidedly in break mode.
(This also means that for most of the first week of January, my kids will be in school while the public schools are closed so we will have a bit of a slower ramp up with respect to actiivites – which is fine with me!)
AND, I let the kids basically just do screens for much of the day. Sometimes they watched / played stuff together, sometimes apart.
Normally I’m all about outings and outdoor time and screens AFTER lunch and . . . doing stuff. But I think we all needed this! I was able to finish my work + enjoy some planning time!
I am especially happy that I finally got my Essential Calendar filled out for Q1-2. (I initially did just the first part but it wasn’t enough of a “look ahead” for me, so now we have Dec – June up there!
(I am an affiliate for the Essential Calendar and I do have a link which gives you 10% off and me a small commission –> shop here; use code BESTLAIDPLANS . In the picture I also used their washi + sticky dots – love the washi for this especially as it will be easy to remove if plans change!)
A functional hallway indeed – a zoomed out 6 month view plus a weekly view (EC whiteboard I’ve had for a million years). LOVE IT.
I also got my annual goals into handwritten form in my goals notebook. I am excited for 2024!
I also made this for dinner. It did not disappoint. I do not do a lot of the weekday cooking but honestly that is something I miss a little bit.
