february goal recap


Focusing on // the home study process.
I am happy to report that we made some MAJOR progress on this goal... mostly in the last week or so.  We both finished our 70 question self study and overnighted them to our home study agency (which was task #1)... we scheduled our second meeting with our home study agency for tomorrow (wouldn't you know that we'd squeeze this in on the very last day of the month... this was task #2)... and we have started kid-proofing our home (task #3).  So, yep... I'd consider this goal a major check-plus:)

Finishing up // old projects.
This was just so-so.  I'm definitely going to have to try this one again in later months.  I'm thinking it might be a good idea to just give myself 1-2 very specific projects that I want to finish.  Sadly, I have plenty of unfinished projects.  I could save one unfinished project for every month and probably never run out... hmmm...

Finding time // for myself.
Eh... this one was just okay.  I definitely did a better job of protecting some of my evenings and have cut-down on a few commitments.  This allowed me to work on a few crafty projects and even catch up on a couple of Pretty Little Liars episodes.  But honestly, I expected my time alone with myself to look a little different... I was thinking more along the lines of quiet coffee shops and bookstores... journaling and reading.  I still want to cultivate more of this... I think it's a good practice for me.

Figuring out // our budget.
I think we are on the right track with this one.   I was able to create a budget binder and organize it in a way that makes the most sense for us.  We are still navigating the triumphs and trials of living within a budget, and we definitely have a few life circumstances that will dictate much of this process for us... but we are up for the challenge.

There you have it... my February goal recap... which I'm sure is excruciatingly boring, but I'm all about some accountability, therefore I apologize... but not really.
