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!  It’s Sunday night. I’m sitting in bed using Casey’s laptop because mine is broken (SIGH) and I’m trying not to get stressed out about how much this next week without a working computer is going to blow. I really don’t like being a slave to technology, do you?  The good news is that I got enough Vitamin D to last me a few days. We were up in Calistoga this weekend visiting family. I wore a bathing suit. I got myself in water. We had a nice dinner outdoors and I got sun on my shoulders and painted outside. It was all awesome except for the computer situation. Some things are beyond my control!!

This week has a holiday smack dab in the middle. How rude! We’ll see how much I can get done despite that. I hope you enjoy the holiday if you celebrate it. I’m thinking of making an icebox cake situation or maybe I’ll go the chocolate chunk blondie route with ice cream?  This will be my first 4th of July without my Mom in a very long time.  I am going to try to give myself grace and cry if I need to.  I know it’s gonna be a little tough for me and my Dad.  Knowing that makes it somewhat easier.  Either way, here are my Intentions for the Week!

    Hey, Tracy

    Just made your Mom’s Sour Cream Coffeecake for tomorrow. I make it for Easter and the Fourth of July. I cannot imagine how she managed to make it for Christmas morning every year. She became the mother she wanted/needed as a girl. She really devoted herself to her family.

      She was the best! She worked hard at being the mother she always wanted. I am so lucky to have had her for as long as I did. Enjoy your 4th! xoxo
