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! Writing this Sunday night. Listening to Led Zeppelin and drinking iced tea. It feels too good to close my eyes. That’s how tired I am. We had a full weekend with family and it was awesome!

We were in the city with family for Fleet Week and we spent the whole time eating and drinking. This is why I am not on the Whole30 plan right now.  Is anyone on it? Maybe I’ll start soon…

This week is a catchup and get organized week. There are some trouble dumping zones around my house right now that I have to clean up. The pantry is looking a little rough and I need to do some straightening.

  • Jamie

    I’m feeling a hefty dose of girl hormones right now so I’ll keep the curse words to myself since I always feel like a useless slob at this point in the month, and state the following intentions for the week:

    – clean inside of travel trailer
    – meditate daily
    – deep clean freezers

    Happy Monday! Have a great week, Tracy.

  • Jennie

    Drop package at FedEx
    Get car serviced
    Donate old kids stuff at consignment store
    Target returns
    Hang a zillion pictures on the wall
    Keep decluttering. Less stuff, less stuff, less stuff.

  • Jere

    Most every week my intentions ave the same #1 Wake up/Get up. At ninety one years there is’n t a #2 on list unless that happens. But believe it or not I do make lists and usually complete..Last week I cleaned my pantry that I am sure a bomb went of in it, and I read a book, cleaned the Fridge then said “I’m glad Number one on my list worked. And also I always check for Ella… Jere
