november goals

November 1, 2013

I thought that today I could share cute photos of our Halloween adventure, but remember how Meredith is two? Yeah, the evening was a little rough. I barely got any pictures at all and let’s not talk about how hard that is for me to let go of. Moving on, and instead let’s talk about monthly goals. First a recap of October’s goals: 1. Make a fall garland: did it, and shared it. 2. Go thrifting: did it, only found a few small things but it was fun. 3. VBS: did it and didn’t miss a single week. 4. Choose blanket colors: did it, and my mom purchased the yarn & started crocheting! 5. One craft just for fun: did…

october goals

October 1, 2013

I woke up this morning and just decided it was time to start up monthly goals again. I took a break due to pregnancy exhaustion and then just didn’t feel the motivation to pick back up until now. My plan is to finish out the year with these and then reevaluate how I want to do goals for next year. When thinking of my goals this month I wanted to keep it fun and easy. These days things are hard enough with raising a toddler, growing a human, and working. There is also the stocking and cross stitching that I’m working on and will try to keep up with. These are just little extra things that I want to add…

So this month might not be very fun. It’s time to make some changes though. I need to eat healthier and my main area of weakness is sweets so I’m starting there. Until now I’ve been having multiple desserts a day. I want to cut back to two a week to try to get rid of the cravings. I also figure that if I get a good water bottle and have it always with me I’ll drink more, which I want to do anyway, and it will also help keep me from snacking. The exercise thing needs to happen but I’m not sure how. My ideas right now are to do yoga 2-3 times a week in the morning before…

may goals update

Lay out quilt, then stack and label rows. Done! It was so much fun to see it laid out. And my sewing machine is working, so now comes the exciting part. Complete fifteen CEU’s. Easy. I tried the awesome website we have at work for free ones and I knocked them out in a day. Figure out Google Calendar. A long time ago I tried to start using Google Calendar but I did it in a really complicated way and it didn’t work for me. So I went back and wiped everything clean, then simplified. The thing I’m most excited about is I figured out how to sync it to iCal on my phone. Super useful. I also started using…

may goals

So after a very busy April I wanted to take a step back this month in the goals area. There are only six of them, and none are too intense. I’m really excited about laying out my quilt top because I’ll get to see what the finished product will look like (sort of). Then I want to prepare it for sewing. CEU’s stands for continuing education units, and I need them to keep up my nursing license, my oncology certification, and for annual review at work. I am behind on them so this needs to get done regardless, but I thought making it a monthly goal would give me more satisfaction when I do them. I am curious about Google…
