Intel® Core™ i5 processor & Win a $250 Gift Card to Best Buy

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

Our lives have been extremely busy lately. I keep thinking there will be a break, but then something new comes up.  For the past three months, we have been remodeling our house and living in a construction zone. I tried to prepare myself, but there are always surprises when you remodel. It has been a long road. I have also been busy with my job as a wellness consultant, travel, friends and family, and of course the blog.

Luckily, I am a very organized person and the queen of multi-tasking so I have been able to stay on top of most things. I’ll be honest though, it has been hard to keep up with everything while remodeling our house. Normally, I never let the laundry fall behind, I plan out our meals a week in advance, never get behind on emails, etc. But lately, I have let a few things slide, even though my multi-tasking mode has been in overdrive.

Our house is almost completed and it is time for me to re-focus. The holiday season is here and it is time for me to get organized again. I am ready to tackle my to-do lists and conquer my daily tasks with full enthusiasm. I want to stay ahead of the game so I can enjoy the holidays.

I was recently selected by BlogHer and Intel to review the Intel® Core™ i5 processor with Turbo Boost Technology, allowing me to “Get More Done in less time”  and an Intel® Wireless Display (aka WiDi) adaptor. I am hoping my new computer will help me get my life in order-just in time for the holidays! I will be sharing my thoughts on Monday-so stay tuned!

    I am the Post-It girl during the holidays. I make lists and post them throughout the house to remember what I need to get done, buy, or clean before the Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    I try to be intentional about any downtime that I have with a one year old and a two year old running around. Love your blog! :)

    Get enough sleep & stay healthy…..otherwise I get sick and then NOTHING gets done. Learn to cut loose what you can do without and to say NO…..it’s not so hard once you start & you don’t end up over-committed and stressed!

    My iPhone keeps me organized. I use it for notes, calendar features, etc. And I also rely on good old-fashioned post-its and a mini-notebook I keep in my purse.

    I stay organized by going over my endless lists each morning to recenter and make sure I am doing everything I should be doing. This Christmas will be a bit more hectic as we have been doing some remodeling as well and still have several of the projects ongoing. But my lists will come through for me.

    Listmaming AND crossing off. Delegating tasks. I have one daughter that has taken over pie making so I have less to do.
