2018 Monthly Goals: September

IMG_6683

Where did August go? How is it already September? I feel like I blinked and August is over. I guess the stress of back to school made the month go by much faster than normal. But looking back at my goals for August- I rocked them! 

August Goals:

1. Finish buying uniform pieces. DONE. All 4 kids have full uniforms for the entire year! It’s such a relief to not have to worry about finding uniform pieces until next year. 

2. Get back on the monthly meal planning train. DONE. I’ve been really good with the meal planning. I’m going to start doing a weekly meal plan post again soon, I think. 

3. Get back in the school year groove. DONE. It was painful and it sucked all the life out of me. But we did it. Kids are waking up with their alarm clocks every morning, I’m going to bed before midnight, all the laundry is done on the weekend, and dinner is at 6:00. Go me.

4. Enjoy our last 2 weeks of summer. DONE. We enjoyed the heck out of our last 2 weeks of summer. Carowinds, swimming, the movies….we enjoyed every last minute.

5. Get organized. DONE. All my calendars and planners are up to date, closets are organized, pantry is organized. It feels great!

September Goals:

1. Spend more one on one time with the kids. Maia, in particular, needs some one on one time right now. She’s still having a hard time. I need to be more conscious of taking her out for coffee or to window shop. 

2. Celebrate 2 birthdays. Zoey turns 8 and Camden turns 16 this month. We’re planning parties, and outings, and school celebrations. 

3. Volunteer. I’m class coordinator for Zoey’s class again this year and I’m co-chair of the used uniform committee at their school. I want to do more volunteering on a weekly basis in the middle school though. 

4. Have a minimal spending month. Birthday presents are already purchased, uniforms are purchased, weekend clothes are purchased, shoes are purchased….I want to spend nothing extra this month. 

5. Try 5 new recipes. I’ve found so many new recipes that my family loves since buying the Instant Pot and there are so many more out there! I can’t wait to try even more.
