2017 Monthly Goals: May

17goals

Holy cow…it’s MAY! Tyler only has 19 days of school left, the little kids only have 28 days left, and Maia only has 27 days left! We are coming into the home stretch, y’all! April went by in a flash but I still got a lot done. 

April Goals:

1. Work on front yard. HALF DONE. We got a good start anyway. Matt pressure washed the front porch, the steps, the front of the house, the garage door, and the entire driveway. We laid our edging down and are waiting for our pine straw to arrive, and we hired a lawn company to fix our grass. Still more to do though.

2. Start planning the backyard redo. DONE. We started planning but haven’t done anything. Well we got the hot tub fixed but that’s it. I have a good idea of what I want to do back there, now we just have to make it happen.

3. Organize papers. DONE. I completely emptied out the big file cabinet and reorganized the files. I filed all the paperwork in the small file box I keep in my command center. And I created a simple weekly file box for the kitchen. Paperwork organized!

4. Do a driving contract with Tyler. DONE. We sat down and went over rules, consequences, expectations, etc. He knows his curfew, he knows what he is expected to do around the house to help pay for his car, he knows what will happen should he not live up to his part of the contract. 

5. Clean out master closet. NOPE. Didn’t even get started. Still on the list. 

May Goals:

1. Finish the front yard landscaping. The pine straw will be arriving soon. Then I need to touch up the paint on the porch and railings, hang my fern, get some potted plants, pull out the dead bushes, and replace/plant all new bushes and plants. It’s a lot but it will look so amazing when it’s done.

2. Purge my closet. Oh holy cow my closet it awful. I need to get rid of at least 50% of my clothes. Seriously. I think I’m going to do what a friend recommended and purge all but a certain number of items then take those purged items and store them for 6 months. If I don’t miss them or need them in those 6 months then they get donated. I’ll be much happier when I’m not staring at a cluttered mess in my closet. 

3. Finish master bedroom redo. We got a king sized bed yesterday and that means I had to completely rework the bedroom. It’s a big disaster right now. So I want to get it completely 100% finished this month.

4. Finish all half done projects. I have several. I need to touch up paint in most of the rooms, finish painting a cabinet, switch rugs in a couple of rooms, and a list of other stuff. 

5. Do another big purge of the house. We took a huge truck load to Goodwill this weekend. And I’ve already started another pile. It feels SO GOOD to purge. I will never be a hoarder. Ha!
