March Goals (Halfway Thru March? Eh, Who Cares)


Since I love to copy other people so much (it's kind of my thang) I found this post the other day and decided to run with it. Basically, she set up general categories and then picks goals each month to fit into them.  Small, easily attainable, sort of...shallow? Does that sound mean? It's not meant to. These aren't her big goals, the stay healthy and pray daily and be better goals.  They're the little ones that fit right into my Do the Work project this year- small things that NEED to be done, but they're so easy to push aside until wow it's been two years and I still haven't thrown out a shoe that I lost the mate for when we moved here?!?!

(Some of hers don't fit me exactly, so I'll be modifying as needed.) (Also, I know it's already March 11 but I didn't want to wait all the way till April to start.)

HOUSE/PURGE: Purging was a huge fail for me last year, so I'm trying to get back to it.  Maybe baby steps will be easier? In March, I want to deal with the playroom- toss toys we don't need, set aside half (MORE THAN HALF) of the Lego. They love Lego, and I love watching them build, but they dump all that shit out to make the same house and car a hundred times a day.  A house and car they can make with two hundred pieces. Then they leave the other eighteen HUNDRED pieces on the floor for me to step on.

NAGGING TASK: The epitome of the baby steps, the crap I just don't want to do, but it would only take ten minutes so I should just DO THE WORK already!! This month, I'm sharpening all the colored pencils and tossing the markers that are dry.  Ugh.  This has seriously been on my to-do list for two years.

HEALTH/STYLE/BEAUTY: This month I want to start using a sugar scrub (the struggle against dry skin and patches of eczema is real) and try out one of these razors I read about somewhere one day. I also want to use up or toss most of the half empty jars of skincare in the medicine cabinet and same with the makeup in the table drawer.

CRAFT:  I want to make some serious progress on the blanket I'm knitting, plus finish AND MAIL Blair's quilt, and get ALL Serena's HSTs trimmed AND pressed open.  It's gonna be hard, but I think I can do it. Probably the knit blanket will be the one to suffer. It is already the twelfth, after all...

PHOTOGRAPHY: I miss taking pictures with my big camera. Like, really miss it. I always just grab my phone because it's easier (duh) but I really miss taking real pictures, editing them, looking at them...sigh.  So I grabbed this book on a whim at the library and I'm excited to get back into it. My goal for March is to a get a great shot of one (or all) of the kids at the new table, working on art in the playroom.  Tricky bc the window in there faces weird.

So there we go.  Baby steps.  What do you think?
