Moving Right Along: The 2019 Winter Edition

Roseys first snow Border Collie 11-2019.jpgYesterday was another Manic Monday– Where has the time gone? What have you been up to, Friends and Confidantes? We have lots of catching up to do! It snowed for the first time here in Central Indiana. Has it snowed where you are?

MOVING: Spent crazy hours yesterday on home loan/credit papers, faxing crap, umpteen emails, blahblahblah… I was fried by 6pm. On the bright side– we’re putting in an offer on yet another property this week! YaY!Here’s to hoping the stars align this time 😀 I continue to tidy and pack…

  • WAH 1. new gig:  with my fingers to the grindstone, err keyboard- practicing my transcribing skills. I’ve been accepted by a couple of transcribing companies that work with beginners. I’m so exited for these opportunities.
  • WAH 2.  new direction: The gift design department– will be shifting focus from apparel to home decor {pillows/blankets, tapestries, posters/wall decor} in Gma Auburn’s Teespring Stores; at least through the winter months.
  • The “In Hibernation Mode” Hoodie is available!
  • WAH 3. The cookbook is on hold a wee bit longer. There’s a queue of recipes that need typesetting and pictures need editing. #FreeRecipes will be back tomorrow for Mid-Week Motivation {Wednesdays.}

SIDE JOBS: Weekly-I’m officially helping my 85 yo. Dad clean his house. Pay varies by task/time. Also took a 4-day dog minding job for vacationers, so that fattened the porcelain pig a bit.

SELF-Care: Overall I’m in a pretty good place mentally. I’ve spent the last 5 weeks {give or take} waking up earlier; and spending less time on random/shiny, internet things. Ordered new glasses too, which was long overdue! I’ve been getting eye-strain headaches more frequently; the more time I devote transcribing.

I cut back on coffee and added in a lunch break… for an actual lunch! Yay food! However, I’ve gained a few pounds- Boo! So I’m still tweaking dinner and snacks. Ugh :-/

New schedules/New Routines: RT and I had to take on more hourly work for the next 3 to 5 months. As winter settles in, I hope to settle into a new daily pace. I’m making new strides toward home life/work goals and money-saving.

My planner is filling up for the remainder of 2019. My older projects/ideas, online stores and social media accounts are all getting make-overs; with deadlines. I’ve blocked off times for joyous coloring, crafts and reading too 😀 It’s yellow

How are you wrapping up 2019, Friends and Confidantes? Until next time, be warm & safe – Grandma Auburn {Jen} 3 pics: Rosey’s first snowflakes!   #Bordercollie #hibernation #moving #Indiana #snow
