Does anyone else think September flew by? I barely have any memories...and I sure didn't accomplish much in the way of my goals. But, if anything, I am not a quitter and I will just keep posting them until I get them done. How does that sound?
So here we go:
1.organize my home...this is slow going. I have so much to do. So many things to go through. And I haven't painted that bedroom yet. So it is back on the list...paint Darian's room, trim, make headboard and hang light. Although I did get his shelves spray-painted so the month wasn't a total loss.
2. freezer cooking....yippee! I did this. I cooked up big batches of hamburger and chicken and stored them in zip lock bags to be used for quick meals. Sure makes things easier. I will make 2 batches of chicken wraps in October.
3.family budget...I think I have it all figured out. I don't think I will be going back to work. And, with luck, determination, and coupons we will be okay. Now I just have to cut that grocery bill down.
4.use more coupons....see above. I am working on this. Loading them onto my Dillon shopper card and using Retail Me Not app.
5.better utilize the savings account..If you hear me chuckle here, then just laugh along with me. My goal is to STAY out of the savings account as much as possible. It HAS to be there for emergencies.
6.forgive myself...I work on this all the time. I am still harder on myself than anyone else.
7. worry less, love more....working on it. If anyone has tips on how to worry less, I am open to suggestions. I am now raising two teens all alone and this is frightening times. But I will love them more. That is not hard to do...most of the time.
Now tell me how you are doing on your goals.
