November Goal Recap

Hey, remember this?

Well...I started the month strong but ran out of steam entirely by the 15th or so. After 3 months of doing reasonably well with interrupted sleep courtesy of Lucy, I just crashed completely. Even though I failed to complete most of my goals, I am pretty proud of myself for a successful transition to work, clearing out Adriana's big girl room, making dinner every single night (!!!), pretty-ing up the blog and making new e-friends, and cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner.

Report Card:

I quit 30 Day Shred because my knees weren't ready. I lost 4 pounds but gained back 3 due to Thanksgiving. I was supposed to replace it with pilates but that hasn't so much happened yet. D-

I missed some NaBloPoMo days, but it was a record posting month and I had fun, so that counts for something, right? B

I worked on potty training Adriana consistently right up until the holidays. She really isn't ready yet - she will agree to sit but won't stay on the potty, and has only actually gone once (at daycare, and I think they just caught her at the right time). I am probably going to let her have a break next month and then try again in January (and repeat until she's ready). A-

I still suck at thank you cards. There are just not enough hours in the day. F

The girls are now in their proper rooms, but I still have to paint. I'm putting that off til spring now, in favor of more pressing household issues. I am grading myself high anyway, because Adriana's room was a dump. A-

I got the electrician's phone number, haven't made the call yet. F+

I got a bunch of clothes washed, but still haven't gotten everything put away or donated. C-

The gutters are clean, the leaves are raked, and a winterizing fertilizer has been put down. A+

Hmm, turns out that posting my goals on here does not actually make me any more likely to accomplish them. That's okay, now that I have some kid-free time over lunch and after work (Justin works near my parents, so he's the transporter), things will slowly shape back up.

I'd say you did pretty well. (And you're going to the Blathering? Hmmm. Decisions.)

Jessica said...

Yay for the Blathering!! Are you coming to PJs@TJs? I'm sure Paul would love to meet Lucy.

I think you did great! I never finish my lists completely but do finish somethings! I am a big believer that there is no way (without a LOT of stress) to potty train until they are ready. Potty training my son was easy and people asked what I did but I didnt do anything except wait until I thought he was ready. And thank you notes are always haunting me too! I did finish myself but only because I told myself that I couldnt start xmas cards until they were done and I was looking forward to sending out our cards.
