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:

Hello Friends! Thanks so much for all the love. I really appreciate it during this emotional time. This week is all over the place. This week is my mother’s funeral service. We have people coming in from all over the country and I am working hard to ground myself  before I have to dive right into extrovert/emotional time.  The fact that I haven’t written my TO DO list and feel lost only proves that this Intentions for the Week practice I started almost a year ago really works for me.  Here are my Intentions for the Week:

Intentions for the Week:

  • write a eulogy for my mom’s service
  • post pineapple rum recipe
  • make sure Cooper’s suit is ironed
  • figure out what to wear at the service for my Mom
  • carve out some time for myself/self- care
  • print out photos for my mom’s service
  • catch up on work
  • accept help when I can
  • work on Thank You notes/list
  • finish up November 2017 Currently post
  • figure out health insurance
  • pick up Mt. Laundry Pile in my bedroom
  • straighten up house for guests
  • trip to goodwill
  • trip to the dump
  • keep cleaning out parts of my parent’s house
  • go for a walk
  • keep cleaning out my mom’s closets to make room for family visiting
  • listen to Carole King- Tapestry album
  • enjoy time with Maj
  • drink more water (I’m really failing at it!)
