  • Rachel L Frenkil

    After my college reunion this past weekend, I am trying for no coffee (!!!) this week, going to make it to yoga at least once, and finally hang up all the things in my apartment that are sitting on the floor. Like, I’ve only lived there for 10 months but I still don’t have curtains up yet, whaaat?

  • Christine

    I normally read your blog on my phone through bloglovin and the strikethrough lines never show up, so I’ve been so confused. Ha!

    This week is my first week of summer break (I am a teacher), so I just need to basically get my shit together and figure out what has to be done while also being as lazy as possible 😉

    • Tracy

      oh!! HAHAA. I can imagine that must look weird then. I had no idea!

  • Abby

    Thanks so much for sharing these Tracy! I’ve found that between reading your intentions and posting mine here, I’m actually getting stuff done!

    This week, I will:
    1. Cook a real dinner every night
    2. Clean my house and keep it that way!
    3. Prep for my mom’s visit next weekend
    4. Only spend $ on essentials
    5. Be outside more

    • Tracy

      that makes me so happy!

      i’m definitely working on # 1, 2, 4 and 5 myself 🙂

  • Jamie

    The meditation is feeling good so I’m going to keep that going, and:

    -Sleep. Sleep more. Hope sleep is uninterrupted by dogs or small children.
    -Meditate daily
    -Inventory my food supplies and plan meals around that rather than buy more groceries
    -Play with paper (#100DaysofPlayingWithPaper has fallen behind a bit…)

    Oh, you’ll appreciate this: when I dropped my little off at preschool there was a white cat in the front seat of the car next to us. I got out and said to the man standing there “nice co-pilot!” He says “Yeah, he’s driving, and he locked me out.” HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Happy Monday, Tracy!

    • Tracy

      wishing you a good week of sleep!!

      HAHAHAAA. He got locked out by a cat???


  • Rebeca

    I’m cooking for 20 on Saturday and I need to decide what I’m making and what can be done ahead.
    I also want/hope to do Pilates every day, even if it’s only 15 minutes. My back will thank me!

  • Merideth

    All my intentions for the week are gathered around getting stuff for my car sorted out. Here in Canada we have to renew our license plates every year, and our driver’s licences and health cards every few years… And they all expire ON OUR BIRTHDAYS. So I’m running around getting that done before my birthday next week. My intentions include “Get a hair cut” since I have to get my licence picture taken and it’ll be with me for years.

  • Kimberly

    Well, let’s see now…
    – call house insurance agent. again.
    – bring last class treats for students Thursday
    – finish tight comps of sticker project for client
    – barre class 3x (one down!)
    – decide about buying paper flower book… summer project? (paper to petal)
    – library
    – think of name for student poster show. edit work
    – mama cat vet appt.
    – receipts/bills (yuk)
    – make peanut almond miso cookies!

    YES to the banana bread! I have some lingering bananas I’ve been meaning to bake with but it’s been too dang hot here to feel like getting it done.

    -long bike ride
    -catch up on the damn laundry!
