February Goals

January Recap

Despite making goals for 2018, I didn’t make any January goals and therefore didn’t accomplish much of anything as far as goals go.  I’ve kept SUPER busy cleaning and deep cleaning and having lots of play dates/date nights/mom dates to keep myself distracted from how pregnant and uncomfortable I feel.

So even though I didn’t crack into my 2018 goal list, I still feel like January was a productive month.  We stocked upon items, made freezer meals, moved E to a new room, set up the nursery, washed lots of baby clothes + stuff, deep cleaned all the car seats and put them in the car, and figured out our birth plans + what to do with E while we’re having the babies and at the hospital.  Plus I got in a lot of quality time with my sweet girl.  Just look at that face!

February Goals

Keeping them nice and easy since it’s going to be a crazy month.

Physical

1. Have some babies!  If they don’t come naturally in the next few weeks, the doctors will induce on February 23rd.  That feels FOREVER away, but at least I know they’ll be here by the end of the month.  My OB is preparing me for the fact that it’ll probably be a C-section, which is totally fine because my birth plan is literally “get the babies out”.

Spiritual

1. Devotions 4x week.  Nothing super challenging or time consuming, just reading a devotional to keep my focus on God.

2. Memorize 2 scripture.  I found scripture cards that I printed out and laminated.  They are short and simple and will also help me focus on God during the craziness of going from a family of 3 to a family of 5!

Emotional

1. Journal 4x a week.  Even just bullet journaling to get my emotions out.

2. Ask for help.  I don’t know how to quantify this, but I tend to keep my emotions inside and then I explode and am a hot mess (usually in front of my husband).  I want to get ask for help from him or friends/family before I lose my cool.

Social

1. Playdates 2-3x per week before the babes come and 1x per week after they arrive.  E tends to turn into a tornado if we’re cooped up inside for too long, so I want to make sure I’m getting her (and myself) out of the house.

2. Blog 8x total this month.  I’m not going to try to do a certain amount each week, because I know when the boys arrive, the schedule will get thrown off.  But I do have a lot of ideas and I want to grow this blog, which means putting in the time/effort.

**I didn’t set environmental or occupation goals because I know we’ll be in a little bit of survival mode while we adjust to two newborns.  I don’t want to add the stress of trying to meet a certain $$ goal for Norwex and I’m giving myself grace.
