Currently June 2020


Currently June 2020

Here we are. It’s July as a type this up.

Not gonna lie… June was a tough month.

My timing has been off with everything. My diet has been off. My energy has been off too.  Everything is off! 

No more school and no Summer camps have made it a very precarious time to be working at home with my husband and Cooper. We rely heavily on summer camps to get us through the summer but now it’s Camp Mom + Dad (mostly Mom) every day while we try to get work done.

The hardest part is not having boundaries between work, home, and family time. 

Not knowing when the end is in sight makes it hard to plan anything.

Not being able to plan anything or have an idea of what the next year will look like is tough.

Worrying about worrying too much and that some people aren’t worrying at all.  Worrying a lot! Worrying is exhausting! 

And then there’s grief…grieving our old lives and trying to make space to accept some of the things that we are dealing with are beyond our control.

But I know that when I am feeling feelings, I must put some time into reflection. 

Let’s look at my June spread in my Currently Workbook

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:

Intentions for the Week- Week 28 of 2020

Hello, friends. It’s Monday! Did you have a nice 4th of July? We hung out with our pod around a pool. It was pretty mellow. We had hot dogs, drinks, cookies & fun. We spent the weekend with my niece and we did art together and we had some great conversations. I love the adult she is becoming and cannot believe she is 21. Another week at home working with my family. I really hope we can get out for an evening walk sometime this week.  Let’s take a moment and write down our Intentions for the Week!

Summer Bucket List 2020

We are already 10 days into Summer. How does it feel besides weird?! For the past 5 years,  I’ve been making a Summer Bucket List (with Cooper’s help) so we can be intentional about how we spend time during the Summer together as a family. It’s a great activity and it helps us all figure out what we want to get out of our time. 

Let’s dive into some of my past Summer Bucket Lists, shall we?
