October Wrap Up and November Goals

Hello November! AKA the start line of the sprint to the end of the year. Doesn’t it seem like time goes extra fast the final 2 months of the year?! I am both SO ready for it and absolutely not feeling prepared at all. Unsurprisingly, it was hard to think past the first week of this month, and you’ll see that reflected in this post, so with that disclaimer here we go… Continue reading

July Wrap Up and August Goals

Can I tell you a secret? I try to be a pretty positive person, but August is my least favorite month. It is so crazy hot here in Phoenix and the heat isn’t even close to being over, plus the school year feels like it keeps starting earlier and earlier and while that was something I really looked forward to as a kid, I kind of hate it as a parent. I love my time with the kids over the summer and I love not having to remember everyone’s academic schedules and needs. So I am bracing for this month but I know that if I can get through these next two months then my favorite time of year will be right around the corner. Before I get too far into the future though, let’s recap July and look at what I’m going to try and focus on as we head into a new school year… Continue reading

You Can’t Harmonize Alone…

If you read my intro posts for the year, you know that one of my themes is Instrument and that refers not only to our familial undertaking of becoming a more musical household, but also to the prayer that inspired me to have instrument as my word of the year– Lord, Make me an Instrument of your Peace.

2022: Part 2- Reassessing Goals and July Tending list

The year is halfway over! In my family, it had a tumultuous start with what felt like non stop illness for one member or another from January through March, then the end of school year chaos hit… but it would be disingenuous to say it was all chaos and frustration- we took an incredible spring break trip, I completed two half marathons (including my first out of state race!), we celebrated our 10th anniversary, and we returned to theatre after a very long hiatus. So it has been busy with good stuff as well as challenging stuff. But at this halfway point I wanted to reassess some of my goals and focuses for the year before I dove in to my July tending list.  Continue reading

April Recap and May Goals

April was a hard, exhausting month over here. We had illness and medical stuff and anxiety and the regular ups and downs of life and school stuff with the kids. There were definitely wonderful moments, but I felt really thrown off and am ready for a new month to pivot and refocus. I was SO ready to work on my Powersheets prep for this new month. Continue reading

March Recap and April Goals

March is done! Whenever Spring break falls always feels like a weirdly long and short month all at once. Maybe it’s the residual trauma of marking when the world shut down? Maybe it’s just the stage we are in with early school age kids? Here’s how my March went and what I’m focusing on for April: Continue reading

October Wrap Up and November Goals

Here we are… in November of 2021. The year has been a strange roller coaster but we’ve made it to the holidays which means if you blink it will be 2022 and I’ll be starting on a whole new set of themes and re-evaluating my goals with the 2022 Powersheets. But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself so in the meantime, here is my October Re-cap and November Tending List… Continue reading
