Looking Back and Moving Forward: Accomplishments & Goals 3/22/15

(In each section, personal items are in standard script and work items are in italics.)


What I’ve accomplished this past week:

  • Made a batch of GF banana muffins and a batch of sprouted wheat muffins

  • Made three loaves of homemade sandwich bread to freeze
  • Spent some time outside on days where the weather allowed, including a trip to the zoo on Monday
  • Attended JD’s basketball awards dinner (if you’ve ever attended a three-hour dinner with 100+ people and your three year old son who cannot sit still after about ten minutes, you know what a feat this is.  If you haven’t, you should try it sometime.)

  • Worked on several (more) blog posts, to be posted in the next week or two
