Motivation
I have mentioned this before, but I work much better when I have a goal in mind. I currently have a few things that are motivating me to get moving!

DH Dash 10K: I signed up for a 10K on November 6th. I am already motivated to stick with my running schedule because of the Princess Half-Marathon in February, but I am glad to have an event coming up soon. It's nice to have short-term goals while working on a big, long-term goal!

Our Upcoming Addition: We will be adding a puppy to our family the weekend before Thanksgiving. This is giving me a huge amount of motivation to get my house in order. I am cleaning, organizing, purging, etc... Get ready, Goodwill. I'm coming with a van full of stuff! I realize that we are getting a dog, not a baby. But, I do feel a nesting desire like I did in the end stages of pregnancy. I know the puppy will take a lot of my time in the early weeks, so I want to be as ready as possible!

Vacation and Christmas: Before the puppy arrives, the kids and I are heading to Disney World. So, preparing for that is on my list as well. Between a vacation and a puppy in November, I would like to have as many Christmas things taken care of as possible, including decorating and gift buying before we leave for our trip.

Scrapbooking: When the kids started school, one of my goals was to catch up with scrapbooking. I have done none of that. Since I know I will have lots of puppy, Disney, and holiday pics coming up, scrapbooking is high on my to-do list (just not as high as the other things in this list).

I am super motivated right now, so I hope I will be able to report that I have checked many of these things off my list very soon. Realistically, I know I won't manage them all, but I hope to make great strides!

Hope your motivation sticks around and you get lots done! I printed pictures of Little's first few months several weeks (months) ago to start scrap booking. Right now I don't even know where the envelopes of pictures are. :-)
