maternity leave to-do list

January 27, 2014

I love making goals. I’ve done them yearly, monthly, with other time limits (like the 101 in 1001), and with no time limits. All kinds inspire and work for me, but I also know when to cut back because I don’t like setting unrealistic expectations. This year I am considering seasonal goals starting in the spring, but first I have maternity leave! There is a lot of recovering and adjusting going on so far, but I know I won’t be in pain for too much longer and with Meredith going to daycare most days I should have more time than I am used to. Here is what I want to accomplish before heading back to work:

The current state of our coffee table, where I am camped out for maximum relaxing.

>send out birth announcements

>send thank-you notes

>blog the birth story

>catch up on project life

>complete my holiday minibook

>watch some TV: on my list of shows are Downton Abbey (I’ve only seen season 1), Game of Thrones, 30 Rock (I’m in season 5), and Sherlock.

>redo the nursery to make it more gender neutral

>stay up to date on Liam’s baby book

>complete his birth cross stitch

>see a dermatologist

I really do think I can complete all of these, but we’ll see. So far I’ve been pretty good at the TV-watching goal. :)

    From Nora:

    I just started season 6 of 30 Rock; it’s one of my favorite shows. I’m going to be sad when it’s over.
    Good luck on projects; I hope you’ll share the finished products on the cross stitching and baby book :)
