this week.

since last week was so, so, so terrible, i am determined to make this week 150 times better. it's not starting out the best because our bathroom is at a complete standstill, we still have to shower at not our house, the neighbor's dogs bark nonstop, and my dog can climb the fence and get out.

BUT. i'm promising myself that despite these obnoxious problems, and the same problems that are carrying themselves over from last week, that i will have a good week this week.

i'm so inspired by suzy's list. when i get off work all i want to do is mope. especially after already being in a bad mood, i have absolutely no motivation. this week: reading, reading reading. painting, sewing, walks and runs. (gotta strengthen my baby lungs!) cooking dinner and house hunting.

i'm going to look forward to the future. because sometimes, this exact moment sucks. big time. but good things are always to come. like labor day no work equals no monday equals that'll be an awesome week. evan's birthday and maybe a trip to laramie/denver? and ethiopia. and perhaps a raise when i return? and maybe jack's mannequin. and thanksgiving. and christmas. and a homeeeee.

i'm going to allow myself a moment, but not a lot of moments. because my body cannot handle all that stress along with the icky from my house, my smoking neighbor, my dusty renovated office, and everything else. i'm going to be kind to myself.

i'm going to be kind to myself. because this is the only self i've got.

5 loves:

  1. aw. :) i'm glad you took something away.
    keep on keeping on--definitely allow yourself some slow-paced relax time, but always pick up again. that's what i have to keep reminding myself lately. :)

  2. Whenever I feel like the days are just constantly bad, that's when I make up the "5 good things" lists, because even though it may be REALLY hard to think of 5 good things at the moment, it helps me focus on the 5 positive things that are going on.
    I hope your week DOES get better! Praying for you <3

  3. Okay, I am obsessed with this. And I loved her list! Sometimes, I feel unproductive and I know that if I set small goals I will be able to feel a little better about myself :)

    And your week of thanks is sooo cute. Glad you commented on my blog because I just added you to my reader!!

  4. Ever since I was a little girl, I was the girl that did lists.
    I hope your list will help you, make you feel better.

    You have a really cool blog here. Do you want to follow each other, I would love that.


  5. So sorry to hear you are having a rough week. I was that way last week too. Just rough.
    Hope this week improves lately and you can treat yourself a little bit!
