Weekly Wishes #6 – RELAX + SHOP

Last week I wanted to make an effort to write more. I write every day in my personal journal as it is, but I wanted to do more than that. I wanted to make an effort to write all kinds of things this past week.

Well, I think I did pretty well on this goal! I actually wrote a short story, which was only 5 pages but it was fun. I also wrote a few rough blog posts, too. And since I forced myself to write more, I have been just a crazy idea machine! I have so many ideas written down right now! And I really want to thank everyone for all of their amazing comments last week, their encouragement, advice and support! It meant a lot to me, and I believe it played a huge role in me being successful at last week’s goal!

This week I have a completely different kind of goal in mind.

This is mine and my daughter’s last week of summer before school starts! After this week I will be a full time college student, and with that comes homework and a schedule to keep. My daughter is also entering a new phase in her life; grade one! Which will be completely new and different for her compared to Kindergarten. 

So I want to spend our last week of summer relaxing, playing at the park, watching movies, and enjoying the outdoors. To really just slow down and enjoy each moment. It’s been a pretty dull summer for us, we didn’t get a chance to do much because the weather’s been lame, or we didn’t have the money. Excuses, excuses – you don’t need a sunny day or money to have fun, I know. Summer just flew by too quickly. Time to enjoy what’s left of it!

Now, as a second goal, one that can get thrown in with my relax goal, is to go shopping!

I’m really hoping I get my money this week because Sidney and I still have back to school shopping to do! I haven’t gone back to school shopping for myself in years and I am really excited! I might even get my hair cut on the weekend, for the first time in over a year.

Now, what are your goals for the week?

  1. Perfect goal for the last days before school starts or really any time of the year. Looking at what you do have instead of constantly striving and concentrating on what you don't have (yet) keeps our crazy life in perspective.

    Your blog makes me smile. Keep up the good work, doll!

    1. Thank you! That's a great way to look at it!

  2. You have the right mindset going into your time as a full-time student! Take the time now to collect your thoughts and get focused for the semester that is in front of you, and as always time with family is precious so love on that little girl and relax!

    A word of advice...get different color highlighters and not just ONE color because they are useful for making note of stuff in a different book...but NEVER BLUE. The blue highlighter is the DEVIL and makes everything hard to read, but that's just my opinion. :)

    Good luck, get your hair did, and RELAX!

    1. Ha ha thanks! I've been trying to get in the right mindset all summer, but I think I was trying too hard until this week.

      I just bought a pack of different colour highlighters today! Lol! Thanks for the advice, I'm probably going to ignore my blue one now!

      Booked my appointment for Friday, working on the relax thing!

  3. A short story sounds so fun! And I think your goals this week sound perfect. Have fun and cherish this time with your daughter. :) Is that her in the picture? It is TOO cute!


I truly enjoy reading all of your comments! I read every one of them, and do my best to reply to each of you!
