There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to Valentine’s Day but over the years I’ve come to love a laid back night at home. Sunday nights are always my night to cook something nice and I’m looking forward to making Rich feel a little special.
Today I thought I would share a few ideas if you want to do the same this weekend!
Last week, I took some time to sit down and review my intentions for the year and set some small goals for myself in February. I love having tiny, manageable things to focus on and my intentions are helping to keep me grounded through this phase of my life.
I looked back on my post this weekend to make sure I was still on track for the month and my last, very vague goal stood out to me, “Be more patient with myself and embrace the unsettled feeling of getting into our new normal with me back at work.”
Kind of a strange goal and hard to measure, right? Well, here’s the thing. Behind the goal and behind the vagueness is something I’ve had to admit. I’m struggling.
I’m coming at you from my desk during my lunch hour and drinking my favorite tea. I’m hoping it will get me through the rest of my Thursday! The past few weeks I’ve been focused on settling into my new normal as a working mom and blogging has been put on the backburner. Thanks for your patience as I figure things out!
I thought today I would check in on how things are going, so why don’t we have a virtual coffee date?
This year is off to a good start and while the past few weeks have been a blur, looking back I’m proud of the way my January turned out. I took some time last night to review my intentions and set some new goals. This alongside with a glass of wine and The Bachelor was a good way to recharge and refocus. I needed it!
I survived my first full week back to work and all I have to say is thank goodness for the weekend. It was a bit of a roller coaster week, but looking back I’m pleased with how it went. Some days I felt like I had everything under control and others I went into survival mode. It’s seeming to be our new normal!
