I’m going to assume February was a good month, mainly because it’s a blur like most prior months. That’s why I want to start doing these reviews earlier in the month so that I remember what actually happened. I can, at least, address my February goals.
Pay off 2nd major bill – This was delayed until March because I couldn’t find the information I needed to know where to send the payment. I really need to unpack my office.
Spend a day with H. – We spent a day having lunch at a local Thai restaurant that we enjoy. Next we headed to Target where we both had gift cards to spend, and Barnes and Noble so H. could spend her gift card. I had a great time, and I think H. enjoyed having time without anyone else there. I’d like to do it at least once a month so that we can spend more time together.
Clean kitchen and keep clean – This is half and half. I did clean the kitchen and kept it clean for a while, but often the week becomes exhausting and I can’t face doing dishes at 11:30 at night so it gets to be a mess, if a smaller one. I’m still working on it, but it’s getting better.
Budget – I didn’t keep up with our budget in February, but I didn’t overspend either. I’m trying to be more exacting in March.
Oil Change – My car did get its oil change, as well as replacing a belt that needed it.
Damage Estimate – I haven’t had time to do this yet, although I have begun to address it.
Now, on to March. I have/had a LOT going on in March. Both of the girls have March birthdays. My employer hosts a dinner this month and we’ll be staying overnight in the area. Chris will be away over night for a meeting at work. M. has a field trip, which I’ve taken a day off to chaperone, and Easter is also in March this year. Most of my goals have to do with those events.
- Take H. to New Haven for her birthday
- Birthday dinner for H.
- Send out invitations for M.’s birthday party
- Clean first floor before M.’s birthday party
- Birthday dinner for M.
- Prepare for Easter
- Start eating healthier foods (family goal)
- Find dress for work party
- Begin unpacking office (tentative goal, there may not be time)
I will update these goals at the start of April and see how everything went.
