One of those weeks…

Do you ever have one of those weeks where you’re still working on Monday’s task list and BOOM it’s Friday morning? That’s me today. It’s been a whirlwind and I’m not sure how I got here. I’m not GREAT at being flexible, but I don’t think I had a choice this week.

Between class, homework, lab, pick-up shifts, family time, groceries, meals, laundry, dishes, Etsy custom orders, and all the other stuff I do on a regular basis, I’ve spent a lot of time at the hospital with my dad who just had heart surgery. He’s doing great now, but it’s always emotionally difficult when someone you love is ill!

So, I guess really this is more of a reflection post than anything. My life is crazy sometimes, but I’m so thankful for everything and everyone in it. It would be easy for me to “whoa-as-me” about every little detail of stress right now, but I just wont do that to myself. I’m healthy and able, and it’s SWEATAH WEATHAH.

My poor planner has been quite neglected. I took a few minutes this morning to give it some love. I’m kind of just “planning as I go” for this week. Maybe next week will be more well-thought out. Just thought I’d share a little snippet. A little fall-inspired washi tape is all you need sometimes! Thank you Target dollar spot 🙂


Here’s also a few pictures of custom orders I’ve been taking. What do ya think?

Brain Drain Printable (Free!)

Sometimes, the days just aren’t long enough – or so they seem! Things are so busy right now. I’m often found lying face down on my bed because I’m overwhelmed with stuff to do and that’s apparently how I handle it. That and naps. Lots of naps. BUT NO MORE!

Despite all the planners and printables I’ve purchased and downloaded, nothing quite settles my brain unlike a chicken-scratch notebook-list of things that come to mind. If I can just “drain my brain” of all the chaos I can maybe get a hold of the day. It’s still always ugly, but at least it gets the job done. Because I’m a fan of esthetics, I decided it was high time to make my to-do list less ugly and more happy. Perhaps then, on days where I’m just unmotivated, I can look at my pretty little brain drain and get to crackin’ on priorities.

Brain Drain

So here it is the brain drain, my first try at a free printable! I’ve printed a week’s worth to try out and to see if I need to make some adjustments. I wanted to share it with you guys because maybe you too need a brain drain! I’m thinking I might make a “night brain drain” to help me wind down for sleep – and maybe it’ll make the morning brain drain a little easier. What do you think?
