Sunday Scratches is where I share the little stuff that has happened throughout the week. In hockey, “scratches” are people who are on the roster but do not play in the game. On the blog, “scratches” are the things that have happened to me throughout the week that aren’t necessarily big enough to be an entire post.

Happy Sunday! Here are the scratches for the week.
It was a much better week this week than the last two. I was finally able to reset some of the boundaries I’ve been working to build at work, because it won’t help anyone if I get burnt out.
Monday started off pretty solid, crossing off several tasks that have been put on the back burner. Then on Tuesday, I met with my dietitian and we made a game plan for getting back on my meal planning game!
I spent the rest of the evenings this week trying to get back into my hobbies outside of work. I watched some TV shows that I’ve been enjoying, worked on my cross-stitch project, played Animal Crossing, and did a bunch of reading. It was such a nice change!
On Thursday, Sean and I even got out of the house and ran some errands! (Oh the simple joys of life during a pandemic.) I picked up Michelle Obama’s new book, Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers, and we got some thai food now that our favorite restaurant has reopened after a family emergency!
I wrapped up work early on Friday (though I still worked more than 40 hours this week… one day I’ll get it down to a regular 40 hours) and had some really nice self-care time in the afternoon. I tidied up the house, played Animal Crossing, and read. It was awesome!
Then yesterday, I finally made a meal plan for the next week or so, ordered groceries, and picked them up! I’m excited to do some meal prepping today to get ahead for the week. And once the groceries were put away, I lit one of my new candles and finished my book! 🥰
Nothing terribly exciting, but it was such a great reset, which my mental health desperately needed.
