March Goals

Boy. February was a doozy this year. Maybe I’ll write about it, maybe not. lol. Let’s just say that I’ve decided I’m never moving anywhere where it snows regularly! Still, I got a fair amount done.

Hexies. Always hexies. lol.
  1. Hexies. It came down to the wire, but I did finish a block last night! 11 more to go!
  2. Caterpillar Quilt. Well, I didn’t finish the navy fruit blocks, but I did prep the applique for 2 of them and that’s half the battle.
  3. Project Life. I didn’t *quite* finish this goal, but I came awfully close. I finished January and I only have two weeks left: last week and this week.
  4. Scrapbooks. I did exactly what I said I wasn’t going to do. lol. I got exactly 1 current layout done, but I finished November 2018, December 2018, and January 2019! I would have gotten more done, but I ran out of white cardstock! Never fear, I ordered a ton and it should get here this week. Then I’ll just need to sit down and do a marathon mixed media background prep day. lol.
  5. Monthly Kid Adventure. Well, we ended up in an epic apocalyptic “winter weather event” which really put a damper on my plans to take the kids to another state park on our February day off, but I did manage to keep my children alive and fed when we lost power for several days. So, partial credit?
  6. Monthly Seasonal Celebration. We did decorate some cookies for Valentine’s Day, but to be honest I was phoning it in a bit this month. I didn’t even get out our decorations. But never fear! I have big plans for St Patrick’s Day. lol.
  7. Homeschool. Xander and I finished the book! He can read now! For real!
  8. Staff Development. Got my 6 hours done! Which brings my grand total up to 66 hours. Only 84 to go.
  9. Kid Crafts. This did not happen this month, but that’s ok. We did lots of other fun craft projects.
  10. Ice Cream Soda Quilt. I finished round 3! And I even prepped round 4! This quilt has been so much fun. ๐Ÿ™‚
Xander was so proud of himself! <3
My prepped Ice Cream Soda pieces sitting on literal snow and ice.

Which brings us to the March goals…

  1. Hexies. I’m going to try to get another block done.
  2. Caterpillar Quilt. Ok. This needs to be put at the top of the list. I want to finish the navy fruit and get the center assembled.
  3. Project Life. I’d really love to finish February and keep current with March. In a miracle world, I would finish November and December of 2020 too and then be all caught up with Project Life!
  4. Scrapbooks. Hmm… I think January and February of 2021. And maybe February of 2019? That seems like a good way to approach the gap- like, all of my Valentine’s Day stuff will be out, makes sense to knock out both years. lol. (Stretch goal of February 2020?)
  5. Monthly Kid Adventure. Should we shoot for 2 state parks this month to catch up? Hmm… We do have spring break coming up this month…
  6. Monthly Seasonal Celebration. St. Patrick’s Day!
  7. Staff Development. Maybe I’ll aim for 12 hours this month?
  8. Windchime Quilt. I have block number 11 all prepped! I’d like to finish it this month.
  9. Low Volume Log Cabin. I pulled this one out to work on and I’m up to 10 blocks! I think I’m aiming for 24? Either way, I’d like to get 6 more blocks done this month.
  10. Ice Cream Soda. I’d like to get the grey joining pieces attached for rounds 1 and 2, and finish round 4.

February!

We made it through January! Yay! Let’s see how we did with the January goals.

  1. Thank you notes. Done!
  2. December Daily. Done!
  3. Project life. I finished 2019!!! I also set up my 2021 album and got 2 January layouts done. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Scrapbooks. Well, I got 1 week of January done, and have the pics printed for another week. I need to do better with this goal.
  5. Kid Adventures. Success! We took a spur of the moment trip to Mother Neff State Park and had a blast!
  6. Get organized for January homeschool. I’m counting this one as done! Mia’s reading teacher has started sending books and papers home every week for us to work on, so I cleared out some space and got it all organized. I also came up with a decent plan for doing Xander’s supplemental curriculum.
  7. Finish teal and navy fruit. Well, I did finish the teal fruit! And I have a plan for the navy fruit.
  8. Hexies. I went above and beyond with this one! I got 2 blocks done AND assembled the whole 3rd quadrant!
  9. Seasonal Celebration. We made king cake and celebrated epiphany! So fun. ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Windchime. This one came down to the wire, but I finished it last night. ๐Ÿ™‚

How about some February goals…

  1. Hexies. I want to finish at least 1 block.
  2. Caterpillar Quilt. I want to finish the navy fruit. That’s only 3 blocks, so maybe doable?
  3. Project Life. I’d like to finish January (3 layouts) and keep current with February.
  4. Scrapbooks. I’m ignoring the gap for now. Really, I’d like to finish January 2021 and keep current with February 2021.
  5. Monthly Kid Adventures. We have an asynchronous day in February and I’m thinking we might try to hit up another state park!
  6. Monthly Seasonal Celebration. Valentine’s Day. duh. lol.
  7. Homeschool. I want to finish the Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons book. Xander and I only have 15 lessons to go!
  8. Staff Development. ::sigh:: I’m going to try to get 6 hours done this month.
  9. Kid Crafts. I want to do the Blossom and Root craft with the twins each week. ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Ice Cream Soda Quilt. I’d love to finish the 3rd round of rainbows! Which (I think) is 5 more blocks?

I have to go! The monsters are demanding more food. lol. They’ve only had 400 snacks this morning so clearly they’re starving. hahahaha.
