Currently July 2020

Currently July 2020


July went fast for some reason.

Mostly because I feel like I didn’t get to fully enjoy it. Is this Summer?  

This is summer? It doesn’t feel like summer.

We are supposed to be starting school remotely in a few weeks.

What is that going to look like?

How are we going to keep making money working from home with kid?

How are we going to make time for ourselves, our relationships and our families?

We’ve been at home with Cooper since March 11.

It is now August. GOODBYE JULY.

In July I finished my #100thingsmyusedtosay project for my 100-day project this year!

I did it! My #100dayproject is completed!!! Thanks for your encouragement. I’m hoping to make a book of #100thingsmymomusedtosay so I can flip through it when I need her most ❤️ #keepgriefweird

A post shared by the handwriting club (@thehandwritingclub) on

 It was quite an emotional project. It helped me keep my Mom close and it brought up A LOT of feelings. With that came some healing. 

Thank you for your support!

It’s one less thing to worry about—forgetting all of the things my Mom used to say.  I’m planning on making a book of them so I can flip through when I need a little nugget from her. That’s a whole new hurdle to jump over.

Here’s the inside of my Currently Workbook for July:

I was inspired by the echinacea I’m growing!

Intentions for the Week – Week 32 of 2020

Happy Monday, friends!

It’s August. We’ve got a few weeks before schools start here in California. We’re doing distanced learning for the next few months and we’re getting ready for that. My brain is kinda spinning thinking about what the next year is going to look like if we have to do this all from home. I also cannot believe we are going to have a 6th grader!! WOW!  Anywho, let’s get to nailing down the week ahead. We are on the 32nd week of 2020. Crazy, right? Here are my Intentions for the Week.

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:

Intentions for the Week – Week 31 of 2020

Happy Monday, friends!

I just asked my Alexa how many days it’s been since March 11th (the day we started SIP) and it’s been 138 days! WHOAAAAAA.  I can’t even believe that. This weekend was pretty nice. We had my Dad over with his boo to celebrate his 74th birthday. I hit a bit of a grief trigger because it’s always hard celebrating big things in our family without my Mom. I made her Lemon Chicken last night so it would make me feel closer to her. It worked! Also… Cooper was into it way more this time I made it than EVER and that made me happy.  VICTORY!  Other than that, I finally cleaned off my work desk and straightened up the kitchen!  I did a little meal prep too but I didn’t take pictures. DID IT EVEN HAPPEN??!! 

Let’s figure out what our plans are and write down our Intentions for the Week, shall we?
