2017 Goals: April

Here's my monthly goals update - April was such a blur, I'm happy with my progress.

17 GOALS FOR 2017:

  1. Read 30 books. (9/30)
  2. Finish 2 cross-stitch patterns. (0/2 - still need to finish one panel on the Woodland sampler)
  3. Finish Amber art book and start a new one. (no progress)
  4. Take monthly baby and family photos. (4/12)
  5. Journal or sketchbook daily. (21/30)
  6. Set a schedule for blogging (weekly) (1/4), crafting (daily) (21/30) and getting out of the house (3-4x weekly) (3/4 - getting in a good walk almost everyday has really helped with this goal).
  7. Make and freeze meals for post-partum. (done - will blog later)
  8. Gather 10 good crockpot recipes. (3/10)
  9. Set a routine for exercising (3-4x weekly). (0/4 - I'm not counting our near-daily walks here; this is for a yoga and rowing routine that I want to get into)
  10. Catalogue library. (no progress)
  11. Host Thanksgiving. (looks like this won't happen as there will be a surprise birthday party in Pat's family on that weekend)
  12. Organize, declutter, minimize, purge. (not much progress, just packed a few boxes of things to give away)
  13. Figure out cloth-diapering (still need to practice with these before deciding if I want to continue with it), nursing/pumping (still need to write a post on breastfeeding) and making baby food (not there yet).
  14. Stay in touch with friends while on maternity leave. (yes)
  15. Tackle a new "kitchen challenge" monthly (challenging recipe / technique). (1/12)
  16. Be intentional deepening relationship with Pat. Set weekly date nights. (4/4 - nothing elaborate, mostly just walks or watching TV together after Marc is asleep for the night)
  17. Plan a family trip (overnight, not counting grandparents' house). (not there yet)
