dreamy :: practical
I'm so happy to have made it to the end of week two of the school year! Even though it was a short week, it still feels like a great accomplishment to have made it through. I'm so happy for the weekend! What are your plans?
One of my goals this year is to be intentional about the weekends. Last year I got really burnt out from random feeling weekends, spending too much time out of the house, and not really planning how I wanted to spend my time. This year I just want to know what I'm doing and at least try keep a balance of chores and laziness and fun outings.
Tonight we got Mexican food (take-out--we do this basically every Friday) and watched Fantasia. Fantasia was better than I remembered! All I remembered from childhood was the sequence with Mickey Mouse and the buckets of water. This time around I saw that there is also lots of lovely animation to zone out on.
Also hoping to:
:: go to yoga class at the athletic club and then spend one hour by the pool, reading
:: maybe make some macaroons with the boys
:: have a Sunday outing to a museum or the beach
:: watch The Secret of Roan Innish, which we have right now from Netflix
:: do a few quick chores around the house, just to stay slightly on top of things (I'm using an iPad app to help me with this, which I'll write about soon)
:: do many loads of laundry
:: wash the car with the boys helping me
:: make a Trader Joe's run
Have a fabulous weekend! It's super hot here, but maybe where you are it is beginning to cool off?
