1- Fresh Starts, continued. I think it’s the combination of:
a) a new academic year (residency programs run traditionally from July – June, though orientation is typically late June!)
b) moving into my 2021-22 planner on Monday (ECLP hourly)
c) start of a new Q and new routines with the kids in camp (plus the relief of a slightly later/more relaxed schedule for them!)
Anyway. I am feeling motivated to organize everything. Yesterday I cleared out the kids’ school clothes and tackled swim stuff and pajamas. I am also continuing with Organize365 — next week I will do a more in depth discussion of this as it has been requested many times!
2- Fresh starts, digital! I also cleared out and reorganized my Apples Notes system! My work to-do list has been refreshed and my Q3 projects are listed. This weekend I will work on my monthly list. There is a lot going on, but it feels really nice to see it all laid out and categorized.
3- Someone requested a look at our camp spreadsheet template:
I changed our camp names to letters W – Z for privacy but otherwise this is our real spreadsheet – just a table created in Notes. Easy and convenient!
4- Currently reading: Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones.
This is the last backlist title I’ve had on my list for a while before I dive into newer summer reading books. FUN FACT: I read (and really liked) An American Marriage by the same author and thought Tayari Jones was a man. She is not.
5- Another Quintiles Planner! If you’re looking for more Summer Planning inspiration and some slightly different methods, check out Amy’s post here.
OFF TO RUN (2 x 1 mi + 2 x 1K at threshold. Wish me luck!)
