January Life Plans

Soooo I just turned 27. Officially in my late twenties. Before I know it I will be 30 and life will be over.


I don’t care about getting older, but it does mean that my birthday lists are getting longer and longer. And this year I went all crazy pants and made three lists. 28 times 3 turns out to be 84. Eighty. Four.

That’s quite a few goals. Luckily I tossed a few soft balls in there. So I can feel accomplished when I check them off.

84 divided by 12 is 7. So basically I have to accomplish seven goals a month to complete all of them. That’s not so bad…

So let me pick seven things to accomplish this month. Now that it’s already halfway over. >_<

1- Develop a Chore Schedule. Our house is three floors. It has four bedrooms, a playroom, three bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. Two children, two adults, two dogs, two cats, and a hedgehog live here. That’s a lot of space filled with a lot of dried play-doh, crumbs, and pet hair. My usual approach of frantically deep cleaning right before anyone visits isn’t sustainable and is filled with stress. Schedules. They fix everythinggggg.

2- Cancel Cable. That ish is SO expensive!

3- Buy a fire safe for important documents. I am ashamed to say I’m not 100% sure I know where our marriage certificate is. I need to collect all of the important documents. And then put them in a box that won’t go up in flames if our house does. This one is easy. There is no excuse for not accomplishing it this month. 

4- Start Rooney’s baby book and memory box. I need to have Taylor design a tag for her memory box, and I can start to fill out her book now. Milestones have already started. Like smiles!

5- Enroll Bear in preschool. I toured three, chose one, called to make sure he has a spot, and now I just have to mail in the check for our deposit. Preschool is so expensive!!! Another reason to cancel cable. 

6- Mail cards for birthdays and anniversaries. Taylor designed me personal stationary for me to send out for birthdays and new baby’s and thank yous and whatnot. I want to have a plan to make sure they get out to the people I love in a timely manner. 

7- Get new gutters. Taylor’s company gave them an awesome Christmas present. And we plan to use ours on a preschool deposit and new gutters. I just have to get someone out who isn’t going to charge us over 3000 dollars for them. (Seriously, Home Depot quoted me 3300 dollars. No. Just, no.) 

Bonus activity – Make a room by room todo list. Maybe I’ll do that this weekend!
