Much of what is keeping me busy this month is work related and will be difficult to say no to. I have many early morning (ugh) and late afternoon events, and one Sunday so far. I am going to commit to not making any more work commitments outside of regular working hours this month. WHEW!
Luckily the commitments I've made to blog and knit are both things I do for ME, so I don't have to say no to them.
Moving out of London to St. Marys will make it a bit easier to say no to some "extra-curriculars", but I do still plan to be involved in the Forest City. I hope to also find ways to get involved in my new community... in the New Year!
Sidenote: If you're NOT too busy and have time to spare, November is a great month to volunteer. There are many charities and non-profits needing extra help in November and December to cope with added need and extra donation inventory around the holidays. If you're looking for ways to be busier in the next few months, I suggest looking into volunteering for one of the following:
- Women's Community House
- London and Area Food Bank
- United Way of Middlesex & London
- The Salvation Army
- Please suggest other organizations in need in the comments!
**Please don't say no to the London Short Film Showcase this weekend!! It will be a great event, and tickets are available at a reduced price TODAY ONLY!!
