2019 Monthly Goals: September

After taking the entire summer off from doing anything blog related it feels great to be back. I guess it’s obvious that I’m back so I didn’t feel the need to do a big intro post again. I’m still going to be doing book posts, including new releases and book reviews, but I’ve gotten a ton of requests from people who know me in real life to start sharing other things that they find useful. So I’m going to be sharing menu plans, recipes, weekly lunch and dinner prep, favorite items, organization ideas, routines, etc. I’m really excited to dive back into writing- I’ve missed it! Please feel free to share my posts with friends who you think will enjoy them or find them useful! I’ve updated a lot of the information on the blog, including social media links, so feel free to check them out and follow along! 

Goals for September:

1. Personal Goals:

  • Continue only drinking water during daytime
  • Get new digital planner updated and running
  • Add new recipes to app

2. Family Goals:

  • Start kids’ weekly calendar on fridge
  • Clean out kids’ closets & donate clothes
  • Try 5 new recipes

3. House & Organization Goals:

  • Organize laundry room
  • Organize bonus room & closet
  • Organize Zoey’s bedroom

4. Book & Blog Goals:

  • Read 5 books 
  • Schedule out at least 2 weeks of posts
  • Work on getting past posts edited

When I Wasn’t Reading

Unfortunately I had a bunch of sick kids this week. Today is the first day all 4 are actually back in school. We also had the varsity football banquet for our senior, which was so bittersweet. I’ve spent most of this week medicating, sanitizing, and washing bedding. Is it Spring yet?

What’s Up this Weekend

We have a 3 day weekend and we have absolutely nothing planned except relaxing and enjoying some football on Sunday. I need to grab some groceries but other than that I plan to wear my comfy pajamas for 99% of the weekend! I’m trying to fight off whatever devil virus my kids had this week so I cancelled all plans. Next week is super busy so this weekend of nothing is much needed.

When I Wasn’t Reading

This was my kids’ first week back to school after a 16 day winter break. It was hard, y’all. So hard. Cranky kids, cranky mom…even the dogs were cranky. But we survived. I’m not even sure what I did all week- laundry, cleaning and organizing, grocery shopping, and took one kid to 2 different doctor appointments. I’m so ready for the weekend!

What’s Up this Weekend

We have no set plans this weekend. Three kids have social plans but other than that I think we’re just going to stay home and watch the NFL playoffs. And do more laundry, of course.
