Well January flew by. Don't you think? I am looking back today to see how I made out with my Goals for 2014 and how I broke them down for January and we will then see how things go for February. Gosh, I cannot believe that it is alread February....
ORGANIZE MY HOME
Start with the Christmas things -done
Organize papers in desk and around the house-I did get the top of the desk organized and I am doing very good with trashing the junk that comes in the mail and home from school immediately.
Organize kitchen cabinets
Clean out laundry room closet
Find 10 recipes-I found 10 easily
Make 10 freezer meals-I didn't make any to put in the freezer. We ate them when I made them.
Make waffles, Quesadillas, Breakfast burritos for the freezer
SET UP A FAMILY BUDGET
Get it all on the spreadsheet-done
Assign $ amounts to how much I want to spend in each area
USE MORE COUPONS
Figure out how to use my smartphone to use more coupons-done. I now have both Dillon's (our local grocery store) and Retailmenot.com set up and have been using them.
Organize my paper coupons and clean out the outdated ones.
USING MY SAVINGS ACCOUNT MORE WISELY
Learn how to transfer savings to my account and the kids account. I did not do this.
Continue to work on this in February
USE HOSPICE BETTER
Have a health aide help me once a week. This was a miserable failure. I am not sure I want to try again. It took a lot for me to ask and then except for the first week she tried changing my appointment every time. I am pretty structured in my time so this didn't do anything but cause me more stress. I will have to continue to work on this. But the health aid is currently on hold.
I don't yet know what I want to do with this goal.
fix three healthy meals a week-did pretty good with this one
walk around the block 2 times a week-ha! ha! ha!. In this cold weather that just ain't going to happen.
Continue trying to achieve the beginning goals.
Tell myself everyday that I can't do it all!-this wasn't hard. I told myself that everyday. I don't know that I forgave myself.
Keep working on this one!
WORRY LESS, LOVE MORE
Life is too short to worry about the future. Enjoy everyday that you have. Live in the moment....still my motto. Hard to not worry. But I am trying!!
