It’s the new year & oh boy, are times a changing!
This first week of the year I have started a new job in a preschool setting with one year olds, which is a bit different from the elementary school setting I’ve been used to the past 5 years. Plus this new schedule has me going in to work at noon & home by 6:30… it’s like I’ve gained a whole new day to get things accomplished before going to work. That being said, I’ve been putting together some goals that I’d like to work on this year, so here’s what I’ve got thus far:
Getting on a schedule & staying there!
So far it’s been a lot better of a week waking up early, getting some things done around the house & staying on a schedule. I’d honestly be scared to see what would happen if I were to totally go off schedule.
Doing Something Creative
I was literally dreaming of blog posts to put up the other day. I’d like to be posting, sharing with all you lovely folks on here & letting my voice be known in a regular way. This schedule will hopefully make it the time to get it going.
I know, I know, but atleast I’m not saying “work out”, right? I know that I’ve already been moving more and picking up kiddos at work and, well, I can tell it’s already working.
Losson & I started our year off with a weekend trip to Atlanta & it really got 2016 off to a good start. Something about getting out of town, seeing & exploring new things & taking a little bit of a mental break, it was just fantastic. This will be happening more often this year.
Getting Organized & Polished
Everything should have a place & everything should be in that place. That’s the motto of the year….I’ve already started downsizing some of the duplicates we have & not going to lie, it feels really nice to do so. We’ve also got a game plan (I’m sure I’ll share it soon) for some new furniture throughout the year to help organize & take up less space in our cute little shoebox of a 450 square foot apartment.
Getting Organized with Money & Life Things
This one should be extra fun… we just learned after Christmas how ridiculous doctor visits and medicine can be without insurance, so let’s just say we’ve got some bills to pay, some other debts we want to get knocked out this year. I’m a little intimated when thinking about doing our taxes since it’ll be our first time doing them together, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m sure it’ll be ok when we get to it, just gotta do it.
So here we go, let’s do this, 2016!
What are your goals for the year?
