Sunday Lately: Picking, Telling, Debating, Mixing, Humming

Sunday Lately 1.1.2017 | Perks of Being a JAP |

A new year is a great time to jump back into a weekly linkup, right? I was pretty diligent for awhile with the Sunday Lately linkup last year but then fell off the wagon. Part of the reason was because the weekly prompts circled back around after awhile and I got tired of the same ones. But this year they have different prompts for every week of the year! Woo hoo!

Picking: Some things to get rid of immediately in the New Year. Per my last post my word of the year is purge, and so I am already picking out some things to purge out of my life. Because of this, I am giving up on using planner stickers with my Happy Planner. I love them but it causes me more anxiety than anything else. I wind up not using my planner because I haven’t had time to plan a layout with stickers and then I schlep them to work which is just dumb.

Telling: Myself that it’s time for the Christmas and Hanukkah decorations to go away. I think we’ll tackle this tomorrow. While I’ll miss the cheerful house I’ll be happy to get the space back once the tree is away.

Debating: How to devote more time to the blog without feeling forced to do so. I want to be able to do more with this space but at times I feel like its so forced and I promised myself when I got back into blogging regularly that I wouldn’t do that to myself.

Mixing: A batch of banana bread! My house smells heavenly right now. Mmmmm.

Humming: The theme song to this show Sadie loves on Netflix – Sarah & Duck. Sarah & Duck…. QUACK! There’s not much to the song haha.

Also EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!! from The Lego Movie. We watched it for the first time the other day – it was pretty funny!

  1. Oh man, that lego song can definitely get stuck in your head. lol. I feel ya on the forced blogging thing. That’s kind of how I fell off the blogging wagon. Everything I tried to write just felt like I was writing just to hear myself talk.

  2. I’m doing a declutter challenge so I’m with you there! And I think I might forego stickers in my planner too…or maybe just use some small ones here and there. I don’t have many right now and I don’t plan to buy more!

  3. Oh my goodness I love the Lego Movie. I don’t have kids either….but I still love Legos! Plus that song gets stuck in your head for what feels like days!

  4. I’ve just stopped blogging when I don’t feel like it or don’t have anything new to report. Otherwise it’s just filler… but I do like the Sunday Lately posts because they feel easy to do!
