Re: Basic Weekly Plans November 23rd week

Postby blessedw2 » Mon Nov 23, 2020 9:52 am

as the pwyc hasn't opened yet I thought I would start here

my goal today is believing in myself

my other goal for the next year - purpose - without children and caretaking (glad caretaking is gone) I found I am needing to do good in the world without being part of a large women organization - I don't need or want control. I just want to be able to help outside my family and home.
I have always taken time to learn new things yearly but that seemed a bit empty for me this year. I love the excitement of learning but that wasn't there this year.

I also know that my physical abilities in the home have changed. I was doing so great but having d pup changed my time and then getting sick reduced my health. older age also takes a bite out of that physical ability.

also looking to make some income. Not sure how I will do it as we have the puppy - but I will figure something out.

I have cards that I haven't touched in 2 days. (the regular part of life stuff) they need to be done.

check for dh - water guy

cards not done:
dog and cat p**p
get ideas from girls - I need to order today - wednesday
vacuum first floor
rinse floors
make banana bread
wash bathroom buckets
swish and swipe - nothing great in bathrooms - I have been making this into a big job in my head

train heel for d pup. cursory

extra: vacuum and dust dd youngers room
clean the middle part of my car - toss anything that needs tossing.

stop by bank to find out how to get dd older on my checking account -

lost the whole day yesterday - I went to outpatient place - I don't have pneumonia but ribs are sore - inflammation in muscles from coughing.
came home and fell asleep - bummer.

it's has to be okay - it is what it is - trying to not put myself down for that.
(it's a bad habit)

it's snowing
woke at 6 but haven't taken d dog out yet. so off to s2s and winter jacket - ta ta
dropped d obnoxious dog at dog care place - oh my goodness she is being awful there - they have video - I will have to take her to the woods before dropping her off - get her back on track with the day care time and swimming time. They have had to put her in a crate a couple times and she is barking like crazy.

spoke to d mom - d brother - he doesn't want dd coming home for Christmas on a plane - I will see. She is heartbroken but decided that it is better for dh and I that she stays in Florida.

goal surface chaos taken care of

This is not a contest, this is life.
from Holiday grand plans re: making gifts etc. makes a lot of sense

goal this week: inventory christmas decorations. I have an idea of what I want to do decorating wise.

time: 10:30ish
1:48 pm ordered new inhaler
dishes counters stove sink done
put away done

taking health break

“Today, whatever is good for your soul, do that.”

trying to remember this!

Still sick but trying hard to get my body going and have a routine for the dog - i am not gong to pressure myself with set routines on the house this week.

neighbourhood walk before dinner - cursory training, comfort training - brush, nails, teeth, ears stand training, wearing orange vest
evening dd older turn

Time to go back to impulse control work for her and behaviour eraser work

Sunday: 29 self care day including my laundry and put away, creative day - put my car in the garage so that during the week I can clean it.
Monday: 30 bills this week and papers that need to be taken care of. phone calls - call vet - bump on hind leg of d dog, and nails
Tuesday: 1 woods, drop of dog at day care, home blessing, dog training at 5:30 leave at 5:00

working on my gratefulness (be in the moment). I am sure being sick and being a complete empty nester and being behind in the house painting and care/decorating/things breaking and falling apart - has affected me.

Goal: being intentional on saying thank you for the good and the bad so that I get back in the habit - I feel so much grace and happiness when I am grateful during my day. It has always been a natural part of me but not right now - I have to make being grateful a habit in my day until I am back to it being natural again.

Look for hope during the day! Where there is hope there is gratefulness and light. Where there is gratefulness and light there is joy and happiness.

"you are judging your circumstances right now and how you are judging them is affecting how you feel. What can help while we are judging is to appreciate what we still have. How can we find our happiness right now: gratitudes" being grateful for the good and "some has to be the problems and the struggles. It's not always going to be this way. It erodes your peace. We have to anchor back to the hope, trust and joy. Be present in today." (minimal mom sisters).

So this morning I am going to list the good and the struggles - find gratefulness for both.

Sunday: move rest of the christmas boxes upstairs, menu plan, garden shop
Monday: new microwave put in
tuesday: dh's eye dr appointment - dog at day care
Wednesday dog nail appointment
thursday
friday
Saturday
Sunday
