May Goals

Saturday, May 4, 2013

It’s time for my monthly goal sharing post! First, a look back at last month:


  1. Wean Simon. Yes he is 2.5 and still nursing. Or not – I stopped nursing him on April 3 and today is day 5 cold turkey no nursing and it’s going great! He’s asked for it a few times but he really has adjusted amazingly so far!
  2. Eat healthier meals. This one is also in progress already and I’ve been working on cutting down on sugar and white flour and filling up on veggies and protein. I need to figure out some more easy to prepare protein sources though!
  3. Finish planning Gabbie’s party and hold her party on the 14th.
  4. Do Project Life pages for February.
  5. Get everything ready for my parents’ visit and my surgery.
  6. Make it through the few weeks after the surgery.
  7. Finish getting my Mom a Minute series ready to go live. Any mom readers want to join in? I’m featuring various moms on my blog starting on April 17!
  8. Get my Israel Flashback Feature ready to go for the next 4 Tuesdays in April.
  9. Make it to at least one consignment sale and find bargain clothes for the kids.
  10. Complete at least one thing from my 35 Things list.


  1. Done. Simon did so well with weaning and I was surprised. But I’m very proud of his adjustment!
  2. For most of the month I did well with healthier eating. I think this is a goal that is harder to measure in the end, but I’m pretty happy with how I did. I also didn’t go to Starbucks even once during April, so that counts for something too, I think!
  3. Gabbie’s party went well and you can see pictures here!
  4. Done.
  5. Done, I guess.
  6. Done.
  7. Done.
  8. I went to one consignment sale but all I got was a pair of pants for Zachary and a skirt for Gabbie. I haven’t had much luck lately!
  9. Done – I flew a kite and I also finished my 25th book!


  1. Get all healed up from my surgery.
  2. Figure out what I’ll be doing with the kids this summer.
  3. Make plans for Zachary’s birthday.
  4. Order prints for Project Life from March and April.
  5. Prepare for Shavuot.
  6. Fix our broken coat hook rack.
  7. Figure out the first steps to moving Gabbie’s room downstairs (and start?).
  8. Do end of the year teachers’ gifts.
  9. Work on my next blog idea. (Hint: it has to do with spring / summer fashion).
  10. Complete at least one thing from my 35 Things list.
