It's Going to be a Great Week!

 Hello there Monday morning!

We are on the other side of a wonderful weekend mixed with fun and relaxation that included dinner with friends, Ina's basketball game victory, finally getting the opportunity to exchange Christmas presents with a few family members, a wonderfully entertaining production of Aladdin, church + babies, and cards. 

(Yes, I do see the irony of me taking a picture of my smoothie while my daughter is carrying around a bag of potato chips- above and eating a fruit by the foot, below. Ha!)

I went to bed with a touch of worry about the upcoming week, but quickly shifted my mindset to think of all the things I have to be thankful for and look forward to: 

- All of the laundry is done (and put away!) and Ina and Cora's clothes are laid out for the week. Mira is a wild card and the only thing I can be certain she will not want to wear is whatever I ask her to, so I only choose that battle when it is important to me. Speaking of making mornings easier...

- Ina and I have worked out a to-do list system that makes things easier for both of us. I didn't write one on Sunday and she started writing one herself. 

- Small group starts again this week! (I had a huge smile on my face when I typed that.) We are starting the book of Daniel.

- At work I get to: 

  • Write a document that goes to a certain regulatory agency
  • Play with some old data to (hopefully) make a new point
  • Send a report to a client summarizing an analysis I have never done before until a few months ago
  • Complete an analysis on a huge dataset - this is the type of work I did at my old job regularly and more in my comfort zone- thankful to have some of that!
- My workouts are already waiting for me thanks to Lexi. I am so thankful I have the time and resources (weights, internet, a healthy body) to enjoy them.

- My church has an awesome daily podcast for me to utilize during my morning walks/jogs. 

- We have a week's worth of delicious meals to look forward to:
- The Chiefs are in the playoffs...and no school or work the following day! 

See, with all of that, how is there anything to be anxious about? :) I hope you have a wonderful week! <3
