November Goals

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


  1. Get through the next few weeks without getting totally overwhelmed.

  2. Keep working on June Project Life Pages.

  3. Complete the 31 Days Series I began on Oct. 1.

  4. Go to the pumpkin patch.

  5. Start decluttering drawers, bathroom, books, etc.

  6. Complete and blog #7 on my list.

  7. Complete and blog #11 on my list.

  8. Complete and blog #27 on my list.

  9. Complete and blog #33 on my list.

  10. Complete and blog #35 on my list.


  1. Done.
  2. Not done. I didn’t work on Project Life at all this month! Now I’m really behind!
  3. Done.
  4. Done.
  5. Hmm. I did the bathroom and got rid of a few toys.
  6. Haven’t blogged about this yet.
  7. Done.
  8. Done.
  9. Not blogged yet.
  10. Not done. Nothing exciting is planned for my birthday!


  1. Finish shopping for Hanukkah.
  2. Enjoy my birthday.
  3. Finish knitting the sweater I’m working on.
  4. Catch up with all the blogging I haven’t gotten to yet.
  5. Be happy.

Alright, so I usually make 10 goals a month, but I’m just not motivated at the moment! So for now there are only 5. And they aren’t really even real goals! Does anyone else have goals this month that may inspire me?

I got some shopping done for Lily's birthday yesterday, so I felt good about that. And hoping to get some of the kids' Christmas shopping done today. We went through the Toys R Us catalog the other day, so at least I know what I am in for and they want. If I get these two things done this weekend, seriously will feel accomplished. And I know what you mean having to motivate myself, because totally still not feeling a 100%, but trying to keep going now and not falling behind. Just so much to do and so little time.

Be happy - love it! November should be a fun and busy month!

I love that you're knitting a sweater.
birthdays are fun, but I don't like the planning part. ;)

Thank you for linking to Super Sunday Sync!

Dara said...

we looked at the tru catalog too. Gabbie is asking for a lot, Simon asks for things I'm not going to get him! but I don't know what I will get him in the end.

Dara said...

yup, happy as opposed to stressed!

Dara said...

I hope the sweater turns out wearable, lol!

Tamara Bowman said...

I am so impressed. Most of my friends skipped days. You really did the #31 Days! And wonderfully.

November sounds like a crazy enough month already with Hanukkah so early. Having 5 goals sounds pretty good ;) And having more than half your October goals done: Awesome! I'm usually lucky if I have at least 1/4 of mine done. You're doing great!

Rachel Murphree said...

I think your October achievements are impressive. November is going to be a crazy month! Hanukkah comes so early this year. Actually, this is my first ever Hanukkah-- my SO's sister married an Israeli man, and now that they just had twins, we're going to observe more Jewish holidays and traditions. I am excited about more holidays! :)

This is a very interesting way to stay accountable! I just realized you are from NJ and moved to Kansas. I'm from New Jersey and moved to AZ. Two huge moves! xoxo

Dara said...

thanks for noticing! :)

Dara said...

thanks. I felt pretty unaccomplished actually!

Dara said...

thanks. I was thinking I didn't do much last month but I guess I did. It is cool that you are going to celebrate Hanukkah and other Jewish holidays too!

Dara said...

yours is even farther than mine was!

Amanda said...

I'm impressed! you did a great job with your goals last month! Good luck in November!

Dara said...

thanks! I was sort of thinking of changing the way I do my goals, since this month I couldn't even think of any!

Leslie said...

I think this time of year with the holidays we just don't have as much time for goals. I think your list is perfect.

Dara said...

you're probably right. I was almost thinking I would stop writing monthly goals since I'm so unmotivated!

Love No. 5 thus month! Give yourself a vacation! You can vacation from goals, right? You've been successful in most of your goals all year long... just my opinion. I haven't started any shopping yet though, who am I to say take a break. I've been taking a break since i moved from CA. LOL.

Dara said...

thank you, you are right and I do need to give myself a break!
