I feel like I’m finally catching up on life after a hectic stretch! It hasn’t been particularly bad-hectic or even stressful-hectic. It’s just that most days have been filled with lot of ‘hard landscape’ activities that didn’t leave much room for life maintenance/important-but-not-urgent things.
INBOX ZERO has been reached — possibly for the first time this year, I’m not entirely sure. I aim for weekly but sometimes life gets in the way, and this month was like that!
Also on the docket for life catchup:
- Clearing off my desk / Sunday basket area — it has been languishing for weeks and I keep putting “clear desk” on my task list and pushing it off
- Make invites for C’s bday party in late Feb (assuming A will help me design a graphic as she usually does). Sending will be a little more complicated because likely not inviting the whole class but rather a selection of friends in his class and a few others.
- Send 20 more New Years Cards — YEPPPP I finally started sending! 20 have been mailed out, about 50 to go!! I started with people who sent us cards and FINALLY started a google sheet for addresses. I love apple notes but the ‘tables’ function there is just not up to the task.
However all of the above probably won’t happen today because a) we have a really fun night coming up; b) I probably won’t get home until ~3:30 from kid activities etc; and c) I really think I need a nap so that I can enjoy said fun night.
OTHER THINGS I’M HOPING TO DO:
Finish The Peculiar Sadness of Lemon Cake
Strength train at least once + yoga for 20-30 min (Sunday). Long run is DONE. (ASIDE: My heart goes out to anyone running the MIA marathon or half tomorrow because our weather is totally blah, AND we have an amazing cold front arriving by Monday.)
Have a 10 minute meeting related to estate planning with Josh
Groceries (TJ; also it’s def a PrepDish week as I have no brilliant meal planning inspo)
Help A pack for trip (she has a FIVE DAY FIELD TRIP next week all over Florida; C has his 3 day trip Weds-Fri!)
I think that’s enough.
