For starters, if you haven't seen it already, check out my new do. I got it done at Thanksgiving, so it already needs a trim. But it fabulous and quick to do. Love it!
So, I am a major list maker. And since I decided to dive back into the blog (once a week or so folks, don't get too excited, I do have seven ankle biters :)), I have made a general list to get me through the year so I don't run out of ideas and find other things to do because I'm a
In no paticular order, my personal goals for this year:
my weekly organization sheet
Stay organized so that I take ME time. I do great for a while. Then things go crazy with too much to do and not enough time with kids and church. I need to actually schedule things I NEED done for my sanity. Like reading for book club. Or sewing throw pillow covers. Or painting the bathroom. I need to make those things higher priority so I don't sit on the computer a veg out and then feel guilty that I wasted my time and still haven't got the things I want done.
Study the scriptures more and better. Sometimes I feel like I have been so busy taking care of my family, that I have let myself not make studying as high a priority. I read, but I feel like I'm not receiving as much light as I could if I would write things down and ponder a little more. That makes me calmer with my kids, kinder to others and just happier in general. No downsides here, I just need to schedule the time and DO IT.
6 weeks post baby & 5 months post baby (getting there!)
Take care of myself physically. Eating healthy, exercising daily, drinking enough, sleeping (a big problem for me). I've had eight kids in less than twelve years. My body has seen some abuse and I need to take better care of it.
