The year is now a quarter of the way over. So, I thought I'd review my progress on my "resolutions" for the year, as well as my March plans.
Had his party. Did not do sleep training due to teething and double ear infections twice. And now he's been febrile and has a stuffy nose. Maybe latter this month? When he WAS well, he was sleeping much better, down to only one waking a night.
We are doing reading time, but everything in her new routine is back to play by ear.
The month was crazy and we just stopped reading together in the evenings cold turkey. Which is too bad, we all really were enjoying it.
Is full board into track again. He's doing pole vaulting! Practice is everyday till 5 or 5:30, and meets till 11, so there hasn't been much time to work on scouts.
Peas are planted, but its been so cold, they haven't come up. They are germinating down in that cold soil, though. I checked! Pruned the butterfly bushes, raspberry canes and red twig dogwood. Tore out holly bush above ground level. Still need to get that stump out...And its been too wet to do any digging.
Make Spring Break Fun and Productive
Bwa ha ha ha! Maybe next year?
And my New Year's Resolutions:
Self Education Course:
Read 3 1/2 of 4 books for my online book clubs
Did some, but not all of the reading for gospel study and Education study
Relearned what I knew in sign before, started teaching Cyrus
Have done several drawings
Was very weak in completing any of the other things.
Family scripture study is still eluding me.
Reviewed and Updated Retirement Portfolio
Did Tax Returns
Turned in MSA receipts in a timely manner
Got clothing put in the 72 hr kits. They are almost done! I need to rotate the food out next week.
Did a lot of downsizing: got rid of the baby stuff.
Touched up painted trim
Did some spring cleaning.
Same old status quo. Did do a Primary Activity.
I have 16 entries for the year so far, but no sketches for the month of March.
And I think I must have ADD sometimes. Because, lately I have made the goals of eating healthier and starting exercising again, too. I've exercised twice, but eaten a lot more fruits and veggies, but a lot of Easter candy and girl scout cookies, too. Can you become perfect through brief little spurts of activity?
At our RS birthday party, they read the story of a "perfect" woman, who managed to do everything she should be doing. It really brought home just how unrealistic it is to manage to do it all. So, how am I supposed to approach all this? I feel compelled to keep trying. And for the most part, I don't get discouraged when I don't succeed, because I know I will have some progress eventually. Although there are some things I'm not trying as hard at as others because I have had so little success at them.
Because it is unrealistic to do it all, is it crazy to keep trying to do so many things at once? Should I just let many important things fall by the wayside and really focus on just a few things? If so, what do I let go? Because it all does seem like important stuff, at least to me, if not to anyone else. Am I crazy for even thinking about this?
If you comment on this post, please don't tell me things like "you are doing great" or "wow, you got a lot done." Give me advice. Bless me with your thoughts on this! Please?
