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, Monday.

Did you know that Mercury is in retrograde right now?

That explains why my website was down all day yesterday.

If you weren’t able to check out My Everyday Life, Week 12,  here’s a link.

 It was a pretty week.

If you’re wondering what Mercury in retrograde means, here’s what I’m talking about.

Let Susan Miller educate you!

Also, a very important website that I always check when nothing seems to be going right:

Is Mercury in Retrograde? 

(you’ll get a big fat YES right now)

 Communication/technology gets really weird during this time so be careful. Also, you’re not supposed to by any new electronics or sign major contracts. Consider yourself warned.

Other than that, The Benjamins are in baseball season now which means our weekends are booked for the next few months. I have to start getting my packing rhythm going for each of the games. There’s so much to think of before we leave the house these days

This week I need to get my head in the game. I’ve been in quite a funk and I’m slowly working my way out of it. Sunshine will help.  Exercise will help. I don’t have my Mom to remind me to take care of myself so I gotta do it on my own now.  Ok so let’s dip into my intentions for the week.

Good luck this coming week!

    So glad your website is up and running again. Darn mercury in retrograde – my cell phone froze this morning and it’s doing very strange things – it just called 911 without me touching it??? Scary!

  • Darlene

    *keep drinking more water
    *practice tai chi–did that 5 out of 7 days last week
    *find shawl yarn–or at least decide on a color
    *make fruit salad–best way for me to eat more fruit and fewer cookies
    *go for three walks–4 would be better but lets be realistic
    *put lots of veggies on the pizza

  • Sara

    Thank-you for always taking the time to blog. It does my heart good to see a peek into someone else’s life!

  • Ellen W

    We are in baseball season as well – with two boys we’re at the ballpark around 4 times per week.
