Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday!

This weekend was a busy one! We were away overnight and came back last Sunday morning. Casey spent the afternoon making stuff in his workshop, I worked outside in our yard while Cooper was at the movies with Pop Pop. I’m starting the week off with a cleaner inside of my car and a trunk filled with stuff to donate. Feels good to do some spring cleaning already. I did an informal meal prep last night to clean out my fridge before I made my grocery list for the week. I love the creative challenge it brings me every week.


I’m on day 3 of using this water bottle.


I love it because it has a marker for what time I should drink water by- 7 am to 9pm.  It’s very motivating! I love being able to check in on my progress throughout the day. It keeps me accountable.

Time to figure out my Intentions for the Week!

My pen pal Christina from Kansas sent me $5 for coffee in one of her letters.  Her intention was to buy me coffee!
