March Goals

Sunday, March 3, 2013


  1. Get clothes ready for the spring consignment sale.
  2. Go through the toys and sort them into a bin to keep for later (rotating out toys), a donation bin, and a sell bin. Move most of the toys to the basement.
  3. Finish at least one sleeve of the sweater I’m knitting.
  4. Complete 3 craft projects to share on the first 3 Wednesdays of this month.
  5. Complete 2 craft projects to share on the last Monday of the month for the  2013 Craft Challenge.
  6. Print photos and catch up with December and January Project Life pages.
  7. Figure out our Purim costumes and Mishloach Manot. Purim is Feb. 24, don’t worry I will explain all about it closer to that date!
  8. Run 15 minutes straight at 6.2 mph.
  9. Run 10 minutes followed by another 10 minutes at 6.2 mph.
  10. Do another swap – I love them! I signed up for this one:

Cara Box



  1. Done. Today is the last day of the consignment sale so I won’t have the final results until tomorrow, but as of this morning I have made $92.30 selling my own things and $120 for my friend.
  2. I put a bunch of the toys in a bin for a future garage sale and moved most of the stuffed animals to the basement (the annoying singing one came back upstairs somehow!) but I didn’t completely get the toys moved downstairs (that seems pretty unlikely to happen actually!). I did notice that when I organized the cars and kept them all together, the boys played with them more. I am going to keep working on this.
  3. I finished the sleeve and started the second, which I messed up and had to restart. Then I got distracted with a few other projects.
  4. Done.
  5. Done – well I shared what happened with these projects here.
  6. I got the photos printed but I didn’t do the Project Life pages.
  7. Not done. I can kind of run a mile at 6.2 mph but I’ve been having trouble doing much more.
  8. Also not done. I don’t know what’s going on but my running is pretty awful lately.


  1. Clean the house for Passover.
  2. Do December and January Project Life pages.
  3. Come up with something to do on the kids’ days off from school – there are 5 of them that are not Passover holiday days.
  4. Plan Gabbie’s birthday party.
  5. Buy Gabbie’s birthday present.
  6. Since I’m getting closer to 300 followers via GFC – start planning a 300 follower giveaway!
  7. Get my Box of Books swap started.
  8. Decide what to do with Simon after his music class ends. (His teacher is retiring – waah.)
  9. Drink more water.
  10. OK. Run for 15 minutes at 6.2 mph. I really have to do this.

I went up over 100 GFC Followers this month – I would love to keep up that growth! If you are new here, please comment and say hello!
