  • Drink only water during the daytime
  • Delete at least 10 unwatched things off DVR

2. Book Goals-

  • Purge and organize my Amazon wish lists
  • Read at least 5 books from Kindle Unlimited
  • Work on my delia.reads Instagram account 

3. Family Goals-

  • Redo chore lists
  • Have at least 1 family movie night

4. House Goals-

  • Clean kitchen every night before bed
  • Create new laundry schedule

5. Blog Goals-

  • Sort old posts from 2018

I have high hopes for actually accomplishing some much needed things this year!

2016 Monthly Goals: November

16goals

How is it already November? I don’t understand how this year is going by so quickly. I guess when life is busy it goes by faster. I understand it but I sure don’t like it. October was so very busy with football and basketball is starting so I didn’t do great with my goals. But I kept everyone alive and fed and the house did not fall down around us so I’m calling it a win. 

October Goals:

1. Finish organizing my kindle categories. I worked on this a lot but I’m not quite done. I’m getting there. It’s been a slow process but it will be worth it when I’m done.

2. Finish the master bedroom redo. Nope. I got nothing done in the master bedroom. At all. 

3. Finish up some small house projects. I got a few little ones done but not as many as I hoped to do. And I added twice as many to my list as I crossed off.

4. Start planning for the holidays. I actually did some of this. I figured out Thanksgiving- at least I figured out what time we’re going to eat. I made Christmas lists. That’s progress, right?

5. Organize the pictures on my phone. I got a decent start on this but I’m not done. It takes a long time to go through 3500 pictures. A long time.

November Goals:

1. Finish organizing my Kindle categories. Ha! It’s staying on the list until it gets done, y’all. I’d say I’m 70% done. And I have well over 4000 books on my Kindle. 70% of 4000 is….well, a lot. That’s math and I don’t like math.

2. Finish all the projects on my house list before Thanksgiving. We’re hosting a huge crowd for Thanksgiving and I need to get this house in order so I’m not stressing out the day before they arrive.

3. Finish Christmas shopping. I do not want to be doing last minute shopping this year. I want to be done. I’ve already gotten a good head start but there’s a lot left to do. 

4. Celebrate all the birthdays. Tyler turns 16 this month, Maia turns 12, and we have 3 other birthdays in November too. It’s a busy month.

5. Find some new dinner recipes. I need to add some new stuff. Preferably some stuff that all my kids will eat. I’m tired of them turning their noses up at dinner and eating PB&J sandwiches instead. I’m going to find some recipes that they all will enjoy.
