    What’s To Come at frazzled JOY in 2020?

    2020?!? Such a weird thing to type out that year. I don’t know why but it seems so futuristic. Although life today isn’t much different than life 30 years ago. (Aside from the technological capabilities we have now of course.   😉 ) You know how when you’re young and you talk about the future and it seems so far away…? Ya it’s not that far away as it turns out! Anywho, enough of that. I’m a little late at looking back and looking forward. Evaluating what we accomplished in 2019 and making plans for what we want to accomplish in 2020. But, here we are, the kids went back to school today, and I think I’m ready now.

    Goals For 2018 at frazzled JOY

    Another year has passed and here we are at the start of a new year. Each new year is met with excitement and energy. But, how far will that take you? Setting goals for the year is always a good way to give you some focus. Goals give you something to work towards.

    Okay friends, we shared our goals from last year and the progress we did and didn’t make. Great thing to do at the end of the year.

    Looking Back at 2017

    Wow, that was a great break! Have you enjoyed some time off with family? I still have a few days before my kiddos head back to school, and I am going to enjoy every moment. But, I am itching to get back into the groove of our regular routine. As we come to the end of 2017, we are looking back at the year and evaluating how we did. Just like I’m sure a lot of you are :). Did we meet our goals, where did we fall short, what are things that maybe became less important as the year went by?? All good questions. I love having this space to share some of these things with you – it’s great accountability. So, I copied and pasted my goals that I shared at the beginning of this year (in the black print), and I am sharing how we did with them (in the green print below).

    Happy Blogiversary to Me and a Giveaway for You!!

    Soooo….I was asked lately how long I’d been blogging and I honestly didn’t know. So, I checked my blogroll and realized that it’s been 5 years since I first hit “publish”!!   😯  It honestly doesn’t feel like that long at all! I love having this creative space where I can share projects, ideas, thoughts, and encouragement with others!
