Sunday Intentions

It was not the productive and goal driven week I had hoped it would be. Though in my defense, I have not felt very well all week. I can’t pinpoint what was exactly wrong with me most days, I’ve just felt crummy. Shepard was also home sick on Monday and Friday. I managed to catch his nighttime cough and have had a lot of trouble sleeping. I also got highly distracted with a new family “project” that has taken up pretty much all of my concentration and time the last four days. Hopefully I’ll be able to share more on that soon.

The week wasn’t a total waste. I did get two of my four goals done. Raffle baskets were finished and turned in on Wednesday. I love the way they turned out! It’s really fun doing things like that. And it’s an easier way for me to contribute to the school fundraisers than actually having to deal with people, in person – LOL. Volunteering in groups of large, rowdy children is basically my worst nightmare.

We also booked an anniversary trip! This was a fluke and not because I actually slaved over research this week. I just happened to check facebook at the right time and see that A Secret Cottage, a little getaway cabin we stayed at for my 30th birthday, had a cancellation May 27th and 28th – our actual anniversary weekend! Greg told me to call immediately and we were able to claim it. It’s a beautiful little spot on a private pond with walking trails, a paddle boat, and surrounded by woods. The cottage has a full kitchen, fancy shower, and big skylight covered jacuzzi tub. It’ll be a pretty great place to spend our 11th anniversary. I’m excited! Greg is too – this is the only location I’ve ever heard him actually talk about wanting to go back to.

Walking didn’t happen this week. Well, we did try and walk to and from school every day. But it was still cold, rainy, gloomy, and like I said – I felt like crap most of the week. Hard to walk in those conditions.

And Easter decorations are not yet up. I know it’s probably like a thirty minute project. I just haven’t found the energy to do it yet.


I don’t have a lot of high expectations for myself this week. I’m still working on my “project” which will inevitably take up more time than I should probably give it. But I can’t stop. I still don’t feel great today and not really sure when it’ll get better. So I’m going to take it easy. I might not even sew this week. I haven’t sewed since Wednesday morning! I have plenty of things I should be working on, but I also just really want to give it a rest for a bit. Or…a bit longer. I’m sure my panic to get more done with kick in again any day now.


I can do it. I know I can. Tomorrow. Maybe even tonight! It will happen. If I get this done I will be happy for the week. Ha!

Meal Planning

Monday – French Fried Onion Baked Chicken. I still have that big bag of fried onions from Costco and I want to use it up. Plus, yum.

Tuesday – The boys have afternoon dentist appointments, so I’m thinking we might stop at Wendy’s or some place on the way home, rather than trying to rush and make a dinner later than we normally eat when everyone is starving.

Wednesday – Stir fry. Use up the inevitable pile of limp vegetables we always have in the fridge. Possibly a stir fry with steak to change things up.

Thursday – School carnival. I’m feeling pretty lazy these days, so I think we’ll just eat at the carnival. It’s for a good cause, right?

Friday – Pizza. Maybe BBQ. It’s been about a month since we’ve had BBQ.

That’s about it. Keep busy!
