Starting Successful on Mondays: Dreaming of Snow

Every Sunday I sit down and make up a plan of attack for the upcoming week. A list of goals in all areas of my life that I would like to accomplish to help keep me staying productive. Then on Mondays I share that list here with you in a great weekly link up called Starting Successful on Mondays. Why that name? Because I have longed believed that if you start your week with a clear set of goals in mind you will have a productive successful week. When you have focus it’s easier to remember what you want to get done and why. I started the link up to help encourage others in their weekly goals and for a way for everyone to encourage each other. Feel free to use the goal ‘categories’ I have set for myself or make your own then link back up here every Monday through Tuesday.

Scripture of the Week:

Isaiah 60:19

You will not need the light of the sun by day anymore. The bright light of the moon will no longer have to shine on you. I will be your light forever. My glory will shine on you. I am the Lord your God. 

Focus of the Week:

Reconnecting with myself

I have felt off the past few days. Not really angry or anything, just disconnected and withdrawn. I normally go through this during the winter months when life gets so busy and no matter what we end up sick, I just get blah. Anyways, this week I am going to focus on getting my ‘mojo’ back.


Cold, nasty and wet. Enough said.


It’s so cold, which is why I am trying so hard to convince Mike to go to Walmart and get my prescription refill for me. He’s not budging though.  The only thing that sucks more than it being really cold is it is really cold and we don’t have a drop of snow. Not one measly flake!

I am also listening to Mike and Hayley play catch with a bouncy ball. They are just two cute together when they get to playing. Almost makes me want to forgive him for making me go out in this cold nasty weather to get my birth control, almost.

*much later Sunday night*

Well I got the medicine, notice the I part.  I actually managed to get the house cleaned to so now I don’t know what to do with my week. The stuff on my to do list is already pretty much done, which means it’ll just be maintaining it now.

    We have the cold as well with a sprinkling of snow. I’m telling you that snow is waaay over-rated ;) I prefer sand. Warm sand. In the summer. I know that off feeling you are talking about. I get like that sometimes as well. Hope you start feeling better soon. I’m hoping to get a post written and linked up over here sometime today (tonight?). Every time I think I’m not that busy, suddenly, all sorts of stuff to do appears.
