I'm a little late joining the party... but we've decided to set monthly goals. My hope is that it will help me have a little work-life balance...something I struggle with. However, I also have trouble setting reasonable (as in can be truly accomplished) goals. John is pretty good at helping me refocus but I also created goal categories to assit in organizing my thoughts.
On with the show....
- Finish a baby blanket- the baby was born in May
-do a "me" craft
-keep my nails pretty- since I do a lot of writing at work, I hope it will brighten my day
-work at three times a week- before school???
-blog once a week
-nightly writing three times a week- I've never been a great journaler but I jotting (in no organized fashion) thoughts and worries will help me relax and fall asleep at night
-clean out and organize my closet
-work on decorating the craft room
-fall gardening- research, order, plant some cool weather veggies and spring bulbs?
-keep up our cleaning routine
-make it through the 1st month of school by leaving at 6pm, doing no more than 1 hr a night at home, 2 hours max on the weekends
-dinner at the table 3 times a week
-meal planning weekly
-2 date nights
-weekly family meetings- to look at the schedule for the week ahead and plan meals
-create a new year budget (to me the year goes from Aug-Sept)
-plan anniversary trip
I even made a little calendar to chart our progress. We also talked about a little reward system....but decided to wait on that. Is the teacher in me coming out?
What are your plans for September?
Because every post needs a picture~
