This week the intentions are to be productive and get back to business. After being snowed in for a couple of days we enjoyed the last day of mental rest. The kids were ready to go back to school and I was ready to head back to the office. I’m not going to lie though, I needed this break.
Sunday: My husband and I did our usual waking up early and having our coffee. Having breakfast and coffee at our favorite cafe, Dunn Bros., has become an unplanned ritual for us on Sundays. I knew I wanted to get as much done as possible early. My usual weekend routine of cleaning and organizing for the week I was able to get done early. SELF CARE HABITS: 6 WEEKEND HABITS FOR A GOOD WEEK I was able to have a great reset while still being able to rest most of the day for my mental.
Monday: Had a great day!!! Although I didn’t want to go to the office it was a very productive day and I enjoyed the sunlight coming through my window in the meantime. I was able to accomplish getting out some good proposals and can’t wait to see what kind of contracts come out of it. Had been in a really good mood and very grateful as of late. The kids enjoyed going back to school after having a couple of snow days. Of course, we capped the evening off with my daughter watching the Animal Planet Channel. It’s amazing as a mom, to see their interest expand and grow. It teaches me so much about life.
Tuesday: Extremely nice and sunny outside. Really enjoyed the sunshine and the warmth melting the mountains of snow. Every Tuesday my kids go to grandma house and help her do some chores and take out trash. So thankfully, my husband and I was able to get some alone time and go have a quick early dinner date. It was refreshing, out of schedule, and needed. It’s always good to do something different and go somewhere different. Even if its during the week or out of routine.
Wednesday: Today was a true mental health day. My husband and I both took off work to do nothing. We, of course, enjoyed breakfast and coffee at our favorite coffee shop. Mentally and emotionally I think we both are going through a transition. Although we don’t know where this journey is going to lead us but we both agree on what’s important and how we want to live our life. We also made the decision to make Valentines Day all about the kids. At this point, our goal is to create memories and experiences.
Thursday: This week has went by fast and I had to take a moment let it settle in. Impromptu date with hubs was refreshing and we’ve been trying to enjoy and live in the moment. So it’s been great because I’ve kept up on my daily cleaning so I don’t feel overwhelmed. Sometimes one day of cleaning and not doing laundry can set me back a bunch.
Friday: We made it to the end of the week. It was a fast productive week for all. My son was able to pick his classes for next semester and got what he wanted. We already can’t believe it’s the middle of February and the realization that time isn’t on our side hasn’t been more evident. Creating experiences, memories, and taking time for self is top priority. We’ve already begun thinking about Spring Break and what we can do with the kids for that week.
Saturday: I chose to relax and live in the moment on this day. Of course sleep in a little bit, repot my plants, and get ready for the Super Bowl. Had a really good week of balancing work and family. Keeping up with the housework as well.
Be well on your journey.
Be you so you can be free.
