I’ve been off work for the past week. Glorious time! A mini family vacation, lots of play-time for DD, and cleaning up the house with a drop off at Goodwill to boot! Satisfying. I know I am headed into a super busy April but the promise of summer break is on the horizon.
Having just that sliver of free time has given me space to do some goal setting instead of just surviving. On my mind today:
- Switching out of vacation mode and into “making dinner” mode. A busy week ahead means a meal plan must be dealt with. Not my favorite chore, but not planning is 10X worse.
- Continuing to edit our “stuff”… being on vacation always makes me appreciate how little you need to be happy. Pat on the back for setting a rummage sale date this summer with my mom.
- Flylady’s habit for April is making the bed. Talked to DD about adopting this routine along with me. We are pretty good about making the bed, but hopefully the diligence in this area will spill over into picking up clothes off the chair!
- We reconcile the weekly expenses every Saturday evening. Now is a good time to make sure we have accounted for summer expenses, especially kid expenses, and fund any categories that still need money.
What’s on your mind at the start of April?
