Busy Is An Understatement

It has been so long since I have posted to this blog! Why? Because I have been BUSY. Between work, JL, Sorority, family, and life, I have not had a moment to rest. In late April, I flew to SC to run in the DIVAS Half Marathon. I had a blast!

Opps, forgot to post! Really busy!

My New Filo-Makes My Heart Sing!

My new Filofax.  The Original-makes me wanna sing-Isn't she lovely, isn't she wonderful!
She is so full, she is bursting at the seams. To reduce the bulk, I was thinking of removing the first six months of the year to another Filo for safe keeping. Maybe, maybe not. I just cannot add another thing to her or she will not close.

Here are a few pictures.

Filofax Week 10 of 52

Malden Week 10 and Erin Condren Week 10

Week 10 is a wrap. I am using the Malden for personal stuff and Erin Condren for work stuff.  I really like the EC for work. I am able to list my goals and things I need to do for the week.  The day is also divided by morning, day, and night.  I've been using EC to track my daily actions, and to plan ahead for the next day.  I do not have enough room on the Malden calendar to include personal and work. So far this is a happy partnership.

Filofax Weeks 8 and 9

Playing catchup posting weeks 8 & 9. Never enough time to get it all in. I purchased the stamp that was posted on another site to add order to the day. Week 8 began with a holiday, and I was sick on Tuesday and Wednesday. The rest of the week was busy, but nothing exciting.  Week 9 was emotional as we bid farewell to Pope Benedict XVI. There was much discussion on his sudden departure.  Sunday, I participated in the reenactment of the 3 mile Women's Suffrage March which occurred 100 years ago on March 3. So off to week 10. Cheers!

My Filofax Week 6 of 52

The weeks are flying by! Having a good year so far. I am looking for a better quality paper for the calendar! In my notes and projects sections I have Kate Spade from a time long ago. The paper is card stockish and feels good when writing.

My Filofax Week 5

It was a good week. I was able to accomplish most if my goals. Met a few friends for lunch, which was a nice departure from my noon workout. Applied for a new job! Getting serious about moving forward in 2013. I participated in my first Skype call with Philofaxy! Did did stay on for the entire call, I had to go to Mass. I hope to catch them next month.

Email Overload

Reading email messages takes up the majority of my time.  I have decided to read, act, file or delete.  The cc line if for information only and sometimes I do not need to know.  If an action is required I highly recommend sending the message to the person who has the action.  In addition, I can just as easliy respond by phone to a question or just walk down the hall to see the other person's smiling face.

My Filofax Week 3 for 52

Week 3 of 52

I Tried!

I really love the blue Chameleon Compact FILO but it was just not large enough to hold all of the information need everyday. So, because I love it, I am using it to house addresses and business cards! Perfect fit. I am using my Beautiful Black Malden for now. I am waiting for the lovely Purple Malden to return to stock in the U.S.

Finally A Workout

We finally made it to the gym, together! Our morning ritual of sleeping in is officially over. We cannot seem to get to the gym in the evening. Maybe in the spring. After 12 hours in the office, going to workout is not appealing to me.

Be My Valentine

Women Living Well is hosting a Marriage Challenge: 
Here is the challege from their site: There are 4 weeks until Valentine’s Day so I thought it might be fun to do a little -
 ”Be My Valentine” ~ Marriage Challenge!  
Each week the challenge will be the same – to praise, encourage, inspire, admire, build up, thank and appreciate your husband. But each week I will give you different ways to express your praise. Feel free to tweak it for what you think is best for your husband.

I think this is a great and loving challenge. I look forward to participating. The week begins on Monday, January 21.

I am joining a group of bloggers by posting my weeks throughout the year.  Busy is an understatement, and running our of room trying to post all of my activities.  Here are Weeks 1 and 2. I am happy that my 6th grade teacher cannot see my handwriting now. I would get a big F.
