Blogmas Day 2

It’s already time for the last reflection of 2023! How crazy is that?

I have been doing these since October 2022, and I don’t have any plans to stop in 2024. Nothing gets me more organized and prepared for another month of writing like these reflections do.

Monthly Reflections

I have really big plans for December. So, let’s jump right in.

November was an interesting month.

It was the first time that I ever missed Thanksgiving with my family.

My husband had to work. I’ve always said, “If he has to miss a holiday, I do too.”

On the 16th, it was my husband’s 29th birthday. We didn't really do a whole lot due to him working constantly, but we went out with friends last night to celebrate.

I kept busy writing and making t-shirts with my husband. If you didn’t know, my husband and I make t-shirts for his work during the busier seasons.

Without Thanksgiving, I pretty much went straight to Christmas. I started getting ahead in blogmas articles at the beginning of November. An early Christmas spirit made the month much more enjoyable. All you early bird Christmas celebraters make more sense now.

Thoughts: I made a tiny bit less than double last month’s earnings. So, I can’t complain too much. Medium’s pay seems to be all over the place these days. So, I’ll take this month’s earnings happily.
