Week of July 13 - What Are You Looking Forward to?

In the midst of the tough I have to look for the bits of rainbow. A new week starts today or tomorrow (depending on which day you see as "start of week").

What is something you are looking forward to this week?

I'm looking forward to a couple more days of 80-85 degree days instead of 90-95 which we had for the last two weeks. Also a little cooler mornings. Which means more time enjoying outside in the evening after work!

I'm looking forward to a 4 day work week - my vacation hours are about maxed out so I'm trying to work 4 day weeks so I don't lose hours - even though there is no vacation to take at the moment!

Your turn. :)

    I am looking forward to completing the changeover on my phone plans, which should save me about $200/month for cell and residential. I am also looking forward to a successful appraisal of my home in preparation for a hoped for refi. I am also looking forward to the electrician completing the installation of my ceiling fan in the bedroom on Tuesday. It's been 90+ here.

    I am looking forward to sunnier days! We had a stretch of barely 70 degrees weather here for too long.

    Still thinking.....Hmmm

    This time last week, I was looking forward to receiving my new baking pans (sad, I know!)

    This week, nothing on the horizon - yet.

    The plumber -- we have sprung a couple leaks. Not looking forward to the stress of someone coming into the house, though.

    Looking forward to making yummy stuff with the berries we picked at the farm.

    YES! Bastille Day on the 14th! We have a lot of family in France and it's part of our heritage so we always celebrate in some way!

    2 family birthdays this week.

    The temps will be cooler in the evenings so I can sleep with the windows open again.

    I'm starting a 4-week Nike Training Club "get your sorry butt back in shape" program, complete with strength, HIIT, yoga, and recipes. It's a Premium program that they're offering for free. I've got Sirius for free too, to go along with it. I canceled my Peloton app membership because the instructors' voices are are always so much louder than the music, which is a big deal for me. I'm crossing my fingers this sticks, lol. I'm also going to hit the local Targets a few mornings right when they open this week to see if I can score some dumbbells.

    Like @abasket I have a lot of "use or lose" time. Last year, my employer gave me 2 extra weeks a year. Awesome! Now, I have nowhere to go and my leave bank is maxed out at 7 weeks. I earn 20 hours/month that I have to use. But instead of using full days (I've got nothing to do at home), I'd rather work a lot of half days. I did use 1 full day for moving S and partial days last Thurs-Friday. But I still have Monday-Tuesday at 8-1 before the month resets on the 15th.

    This week should be pretty quiet. Knock on wood! But I know older S is looking forward to getting his bedroom furniture delivered today. (I hope! Knock on wood) He's been living on a mattress on the floor and out of suitcases for the last 11 days. He's young. He managed. I'm glad it wasn't me :wink:

    I finally finished up my tax returns yesterday. Not looking forward to writing the checks BUT I'm definitely looking forward to having it off my to-do list!

    My vegetable garden is producing so I'm looking forward to fresh veggies this week.

    H wasn't feeling well last week but seems to be on the mend so I'm looking forward to having him "back"!
