I tried to do Mama's Mission of the Month there, and I really like the basic principle of it. I make myself some goals in various categories, and post as to what they are. Then, ideally, at month's end, I post a follow up of how I fared that month. I got the idea from Mama Jenn's blog way back when, and it is just a really neat way to be held accountable. She offers to templates, one with pre-filled categories, and the other a blank template you can fill out on your own. I opted for the blank, because I don't have a partner in crime (I'm single, I can find trouble on my own), and I am not inclined to subscribe to a ministry of any form.
So, for the month of March 2015, my personal categories are personal, parenting, homemaking, financial, blog/online stuff,friends/family, homeschooling, and miscellaneous. Without further ado, here are the goals in the aforementioned categories!
- Find new PCPs and schedule appointments as needed
- Keep all regularly scheduled appointments
- Take medications regularly
- Start chore charts on March 2
- Go to kindergarten round up and find out about Pre-K
- Start flying! (details to follow in another post)
- Don't go to bed with any messes!
- Make (and stick to) a meal plan
- Finish March budget by bedtime March 1
- Look into filing bankruptcy
- Save for Christmas and a car
- Blog daily
- Keep up with blogs I used to read
- Write post ideas down as they come
- Set a date with Cynthia for Ser Steak
- See my mom & Dacey
- Write 2 letters each to Connor and Tucker
- Do the preschool workbooks
- Try ABeCeDarian with at least Ryli
- ABCmouse.com time for each kid every day.
- Clean off/de-clutter the porch
- Get library cards
Now, some of you may be wondering why I have the goal pertaining to kindergarten round-up and the whole category of Homeschool. I would love to homeschool Ryli and Landry, but I'm keeping my options open. The reason that I need to start some semblance of schooling at all is because for almost 10 months, they were sent to preschool because of the CPS investigation of their father. I don't want them to start school without working with them first.
