Mid-Month Reflection

Yes, it is way past the "mid-month" point. But in a few short days, I will be reflecting on the past month. I need to do a brief check-in with myself and make sure I'm on track.

Here were my goals for February:

  1. I want to do a better job of tracking our spending, using our index-card method. This approach works really well for me, but it's hard for me to keep track of Matt's spending when he goes on an errand. We have a new system for putting receipts in a particular place, so it should get easier. [Phew! We're doing this!]
  2. I want to completely organize my classroom (i.e., library, curriculum shelves, and closet) and get my word wall up. [I'm trying. I still have a couples days, right?]
  3. Invite someone over for dinner that we want to get to know better. [Yes!]
  4. Maintain a happy and content life, despite lots of upcoming potential stressors. [Yeah, I'm doing pretty well with this.]
  5. Schedule appointments with the doctor and dentist for regular check-ups. [I keep avoiding this. Argh!]
  6. Undertake at least one home-improvement project (probably getting a consistent fence all the way around our house). [We are making serious progress on this front!]
  7. Run consistently (four times a week) and do 15 minutes of yoga the other three days of the week. [Running, kind of. Yoga, not at all.]
  8. Maintain regular posting on three of my blogs. [Yes!]
  9. Try to consistently eat balanced meals. [Yes!]
  10. Make another craft. [Well, I've been working on my chalkboard window project, but I haven't finished it yet.]
  11. Find a marriage counselor so we can make sure our relationship is as strong as possible before we have a baby. [I've been working on this one...]
Okay, I'm not as behind as I thought. I still have a few days to get as much done as possible...

Have you ever tried Bikram Yoga (hot yoga)? You might find that you feel a greater sense of accomplishment after going to a class, which might make doing it more often easier. Check it out: http://www.bikramyogahouston.com/v09/home.html . I go to one in my home town about 3 times a week on average. It feels great!!
