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:


This will be the first week of the new Year! HOORAY.  Do you have any big plans? I think we are laying low this year. We’ve done so much peopling this holiday season and this house of introverts needs some alone time. Cooper has the week off of school and we are hanging out as a family together, reading, watching movies and doing some house projects. I also have a TOOOOOOON of food journal orders to get out this week (thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) so I’ll be keeping busy with that. Are you going to join me on this adventure? I am hoping with the power of the internet, I’ll be accountable and keep my food journal religiously for the entire month of January. Should I throw in a no gluten/no dairy clause too?? Restrictions breed creativity and I am slowly working my way out of a food rut! 

This week I am going to be starting on my Currently 2020 workbook! JOIN ME in self-reflecting in 2020!

You can read more about it here!

    I have my Currently 2020 workbook, and I am feeling kind of intimidated, because it won’t look anything like yours, but I am also cautiously excited. Our 17 year old cat died on Christmas Eve, following a long illness, so I have a feeling the year will start out quietly, as we are still pretty grief stricken. Thank you for the inspiration.
