February was an extremely busy month and had a ton of ups and downs. The last time I wrote my monthly goals, my blog was on another site! Crazy what all has happened this month. I want to jump right into how I did on February goals, and then I’ll share my new goals for March.
February Goals Review:
SLEEP – Get 7 hours of sleep. Again, I think this is really dependent on how well I can create a morning and nightly routine.
FAITH – Consistently read my Bible in the morning. I’m actually creating a space for this in my office. It will be cozy, ready for me to read (having materials ready to go), and quiet.
BLOG – Stay on course with an online blogging course I’m taking, and so my goal is to complete the units and assignments. I finally invested in some classes that will teach me how to become a better blogger, etc.
KIDS – Implement a chore chart.
HEALTH – Get back in the gym and/or run! Ultimately, I love the gym, but with two little ones it’s hard to be there every day. Now with my running jogger, I can at least go for a run with them.
HOUSE – Complete office so it’s workable. My goal is to create a feminine office, but the current furniture I have is not that…I’ve spent a lot of money lately on house things, so this may have to wait. I’d at least like to get into the new room and start working. My first goal with this room is to install the wood planks. If this doesn’t become a complete DIY fail, I’ll share this whole process with you and how I saved hundreds by doing it myself. Literally, every single detail and renovation has been done by ME! Sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. This has to work! If I get to our breakfast nook at all this month, it will be complete bonus.
In addition to the above, my goal is to start my zone cleaning routine so I don’t feel overwhelmed.
I wanted to keep my goals a little more simple this month so I can view these at a glance and be more focused. And sometimes, focusing on a few things makes a bigger difference than trying to accomplish 20 things.
I think at different times in my life, certain things become more important than others. I’m really invested in my home right now. It’s where I spend my days taking care of my children and building a business and I need that to be a place I feel good. We didn’t change anything the first several years we were in this house (and I’m okay with that…sometimes that’s the smart plan), but it feels good to make some changes to harbor my style change over the years, as well as this season of life.
On a similar note, are there ways you find it easy to keep a clean, organized home? Please share.
Here’s to a great month! Regardless, it’s going to be good because the Mr. is FINALLY done with his crazy basketball schedule! He has one last shindig this month, but we’re going with him to make a family vacation out of it! I’ve made it through another volleyball/basketball season! I’m thankful for a husband who is willing to work hard for his family!
