Good Monday. I’m finally back to my blog after taking most of the summer off. Of course I’ve posted a few Friday Finds and miscellaneous notes here and there but it’s about to get real. Right. Now.
In my other life, I work as a public relations and business development consultant. My good friend Shonell Bacon, who happens to be a phenomenal editor and writer, gave me an opportunity to share some occupational wisdom for writers over at The Blood-Red Pencil. Take a moment to read and offer comments. If you ask a question, I’m following comments so I’ll do my best to respond quickly.
So, I guess I’ll get to it.
I must admit it. I’ve been a bum … you know, kinda like Huck when he get’s crazy on Scandal. Here goes …
- I want to drop 10 pounds by the end of the month. Sounds impossible, huh? I know so my goal is to lose 5 pounds by September 30.
- Finish reading The Resolution for Women by the end of October. I truly believe that God is calling me to greater places. How can I be who He called me to be if I don’t resolve to be her?
- Ride my bike at least 3 days a week, for at least 3 miles each time.
I’m starting out light so that I don’t set myself up for failure.
So, the kids are back in school and lunch is heavy on the brain. Below are some back-to-school and lunch resources.
- HandwritingWorksheets is a great online resource to create writing practice pages for children. They are printable and you can choose from print and cursive worksheets.
- Neither of my boys like cafeteria food, so I had to find some creative ways to send nutritious lunches (that they would eat) to school each day. One of the best lunch containers I’ve found is the RubbberMaid LunchBlox collection.
- I’m an internet troll but I make good use of my time to help improve my abilities as a wife, mother, writer, Christian – you know all of those roles. I use Pinterest to keep up with ideas and websites I find interesting. Here is a link to the board that I use to keep up with lunch ideas for the boys. Yes, some of them are girlie but I made adjustments to each idea to fit my boys’ individual likes and personalities.
What are you goals for the week? Do you have resources that you’d like to share? Please comment below.
