February Goal Update

I feel like I am going to have so much time this month because I took two vacation days! Also, I will be watching a lot of the Olympic coverage, and am hoping to get things done that I can do in front of the TV.   I am guessing that things will come up and I won't be as productive as I intend, but you never know! Ha.Ha.Ha. Actually, I have gotten very little accomplished off the list this month.  I am not sure if it is going to get better as the month goes on, we will see.  Trying not to get hung up on lack of progress- it is just the way life goes sometimes.


I made this much more complicated this month

Run ten 8 min miles (8 of them are done!)
one 10miler
two 8 milers
one 7 miler
two 6 milers (one done)
400 push ups (in progress)
2 miles of lunges (this is REALLY HARD- I have done .55miles)
2 miles swimming (.25 done)
10 days of strength training (3 days done)


kitchen floor (we have worked on this, but we can't install until we get the new toe kick which involves multiple steps and honestly, I don't know if this project will ever get done, but it all starts with the toe kick...)
buy new dishwasher (can't do until we get the toe kick and the floor...even though I am drowning in dirty dishes, I am just not sure when this will be reasonably accomplished)
kitchen trim

bedroom closet- clean out and dejunk
clean carpets housewide
Entertainment center- clean out
Toy cabinets-clean out
Boys room- clean out
Put up third bed in boys room
Deep clean and declutter second bathroom
Go through 6 boxes in storage room (perfect to do while watching Olympics!)
finish deleting pictures
back up files
make Berean's yearly book
continue scanning


Taxes (almost done)
1st 4 weeks of Beth Moore Fruit of the Spirit
Read 4 books
Blog 18 times
Lots of school and standardized test prep! (we have had a good school month and I have spent most of my free time giving D spelling words)
Kid's dental appointments!

date with 4 kids (ok to have N do a couple, possibly a movie with all boys together this month)
playdate for Berean with friends
special play session with friends for boys
2 times out with friends for me
People over x2
Date night

choosing not to fixate on finances this month. We are being reasonable and working toward some long term goals, but frankly, life is too busy right now to do substantial cost cutting measures.
