This Week

20140201-165220.jpg

This week we overcame the sick that settled so heavily on this house. We struggled back into our routine, having fallen behind with now more to do, less time to do it all, and not a whole lot of strength to get it done. But we made it. And learned a bit about being gentle with ourselves along the way.

Mindful: This week’s word challenge was mindful, a challenge to be more attentive and aware in the moment. I was careful to keep this in mind and while I still struggled this week, I found more insight in the struggle than usual. The insight is leading me down a path I don’t really want to be on (hard, but good), but still. Better than just going and going. I guess.

Bad Dreams: Roozle is in love with our 18-year-old cat who likely doesn’t have much longer to live. He’s so annyoing. And old. She adores him.

Slowly: Part of paying attention, and being so sick all I could do was lay in bed and think about everything way too mch, helped me realize that I have such a strong line in my head between together and not together. And the together side requires all the things. I’m working on letting that go. A bit.

The Last Snowman: I’m giving away a copy of The Last Snowman! It rules! Go enter!

Screen Time Weekends: I wrote a bit about our totally awesome super successful screen time plan. We’ve been using this for a few months now and it totally rules. Hooray!

What did you write this week? What are you working on?
