Yay for January!
Who would have thought? I think the mild temperatures, as much as they worry me, are making January more attractive than usual.
Here is a disorganized list of things on my mind for this year. I'd like to say right now that I am feeling kind of unsettled and bored again. This means my wheels are turning. It also means that I'm feeling a bit tied down as I can't get too much done during these days with Nicky. I know this is still mainly my time to be his mom and if I really want to do something, it will have to be during his nap time. Nap time lazytown is hard to give up. We shall see. I just wanted to put that out there as it's on my mind these days. Where will this year take me?
*continue to prep dinner in the morning
*go regular grocery shopping more often, at Woodmans, instead of going to Target for everything
*make myself a God pocket and put something in it (I had one God pocket experience already and it was wonderful. God is so with us all the time. It's a small book with a really big and amazing idea, in my opinion.)
*do better at listing on etsy
*make stuff I love...find my own look
*apply for a craft show
*write an e-book with my favorite milk egg and nut free recipes
*continue to exercise & floss (my hygienist noticed my efforts and said my teeth looked really good...that made me so happy!)
*keep track of $$ I spend at the thrift store (24.63 so far, ytd)
*make a cinder block garden
*entertain multiple friends at least twice (brunch, etc.)
*try baked egg again with James and if he tolerates it, make something weekly
*spend more time with friends
*plan more after school snacks and have them ready (veggies and ranch, sunbutter balls, healthy granola bars, etc.)
*follow through with new ideas for blog
*babysitter at least 1x per month for date night (or date afternoon)
*continue to encourage patrick to wear cardigans, scarves and dark framed glasses ala Mikael Blomkvist
Okay, baby is done humoring me. Until later, dear ones.
OH! I have been awful about replying to comments this week but thank you so much for the header love and for old friends who said hello! :) happy times. xoxo
