Watching vloggers on Youtube makes me want to vlog as well. However, I’m pretty shy and would probably never have the courage to actually do it. Growing up, my dad would make home videos. Basically just filming what’s happening around him. I have videos of my mom taking care of and playing with my brother and I at home. There are videos of family spending time together at my grandparents house and while camping. He would record every Christmas watching us open presents (we were never allowed to start until the camera was ready!). These are the kinds of videos I think I would like to make, especially once I have children. Last week I decided to record myself setting up the Christmas Tree. I sped up the video to make it actually worth watching, and here is the result!
Today I was pretty productive both online and offline. On this website I added a new plugin and changed some other settings to hopefully stop the spam comments I’ve been getting over the last year or so, while keeping it easy for real people to comment. There is now a time limit before you can post, but if you’re actually reading the post you shouldn’t even notice it.
On my event blog I updated the list of upcoming events. I tried to find a way to turn my tweets and Facebook posts into blog posts but didn’t find any plugins that I really liked.
Today I started decorating for the holidays. I got the Christmas lights put up and some window decorations. Next week we will probably be putting up the tree. We were going to do it this weekend but we were too lazy the other day, and now there is an old mattress sitting in the living room that we need to get rid of. We bought a new mattress on Friday. Unfortunately the eco station was not open today.
We also worked on getting the house cleaned up (mainly the kitchen). I also planned out some meals I can make over the next couple months (and hopefully blog like I have in the past). I haven’t really been making meals very often since moving in with my boyfriend a year and a half ago.
I’m going to try to make two meals a week. It really depends on if I’m able to get two days off in a row every week going forward. Over the last few months I rarely got two days off in a row and it really kills your motivation because all you want to do is relax and play computer games or watch online videos.
I also completed the December schedule for my store and am feeling pretty good. I started to feel a calmness and lack of stress that I probably haven’t felt in about four years. I really hope I can maintain some sort of routine to keep this calm feeling for as long as possible
