Weekly Wishes

I'm so happy to have started back on the weekly wishes bandwagon. I honestly feel like it's drawing me back into blogging, and what better way to decompress from an amazing, and too short, weekend than to sit and write with a cup of coffee? I won't lie, for some reason I woke up really anxious and stressed out this morning so I'm hoping that writing a little and then tackling my to-do list will help. You're not going to see my list in its entirety but I did just break it down into things to tackle today, and things for tomorrow. I'm hoping that will help ease these feelings away.

Enough with my stressed soul and onto a recap of my wishes from last week. I'll give you a clue and say I didn't do the best.

Last Weeks Wishes

1) File our moving claim. Nope, this one didn't get done but it's actually a good thing. We picked up Nic's motorcycle Friday afternoon to an extra $1000 being adding onto the original $3300 estimate of damage they gave us. Let's just say I'm really happy I didn't file the claim already and us have gotten stuck with that bill. I also cannot find the bolts and screws for my beach cruiser, and it's all scratched up. I treated that like my baby so to say I'm upset it an understatement.
2) Organize and set up the office. Halfway there.
3) Order photos. On my list for tomorrow!
4) Continue my running plan. I'm going to call this one a success!
5) Finish the Book Club Book. I'm closer, but not close enough. I will be speed reading it today and tomorrow in preparation for the ladies coming over Wednesday morning. This might be stressing me out just a tad.

Weekly Wishes
October 27th

1) File our moving claim. This is getting put back on the list and will be completed Wednesday afternoon. I'm going to find a beach cruiser shop to get an estimate on all of the bolts for my bike as well as the overall damage (it was an expensive freaking bike). Needless to say I'm going to be these peoples worst nightmare once this claim is in.
2) Organize. For the most part our house is set up except for my office. We want to put up the gallery wall and add a few things here and there but it's mostly done. That being said there are also little boxes of things here and there and pieces that didn't make it into the decor just sitting there. I want to have all of these moved to the storage shed before book club on Wednesday!

There are a lot of other things on my to do list, but I feel like those two are good for my weekly wishes. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Weekly Wishes

Few things offer a better way to get back into the swing of blogging like getting back involved with a favorite link up. I loved participating in weekly wishes when I was blogging a lot and felt like it not only kept me on my toes with getting my weekly goals done, but it also gave me a reason to blog every Monday.

So without further adieu here's my first set of weekly wishes since being Hawaii. Nic's on an underway all week so I've set up a lofty set of goals for myself. Hopefully I'll come back next week with them all completed.

Weekly Wishes
October 20th

1) File our moving claim. This is going to get its own blogpost in the near future, but our stuff got delivered to us with quite a few damages including Nic's motorcycle on its side in its crate and our
TV broken. I want to get our claim in ASAP so we can get the money to get a new TV in time for the Army/Navy game. We all have our priorities.
2) Organize and set up the office. We had wonderful friends stay with us two weeks ago and my office became a bit of a shamble. It is labeled as a "maids room" (how you know your house was built  pre-1920's) and it's pretty small for a regular room, but it's perfect for an office. Now that no one is visiting I can pull boxes out and unpack them one at a time.
3) Order photos. We're planning on doing a gallery wall (I'm finding it to be one of the most stressful tasks) and I need to order the photos for the frames. While it's kind of cute
4) Continue my running plan. I signed up for my first race ever with some of the other wardroom spouses. It's a Color Vibe 5k on November 11th so it's not super serious, but I also don't want to disappoint myself. So I've started my 6 weeks to running 30 minutes plan again at week three and we're doing pretty well. Except Nic's not here this week so I need to really self push and motivate myself for the first time. Hopefully it'll go well.
5) Read the Book Club book. Our book club meets on the 29th and I'm not even close to finishing the book. I need to sit down with some coffee, turn on my paperwhite and just read. The problem is Gilmore Girls is on Netflix and I've been drawn into the Gilmore Girls binge watching marathon. Ay.
