5 goals for january

I've done monthly goal posts sporadically over the last couple of years. They usually involved a project I wanted to complete, or something I wanted to introduce into our daily life. This year, in keeping with my word, I'm going to choose activities that actually stand a chance of being completed. {I do hope I'm not setting myself up for failure as the year progresses and gets busier!}

Project Life this is my biggest-concern-for-failure. I haven't really scrapbooked much in the last couple of years, but I'm still taking photos, and have stories to tell, so I thought I would try putting it together in a project-life-style album. My weeks will run Monday to Sunday, so I'll share my first pages in a post next week.

baby#5 I shared last week that we're on an uncertain journey at the moment with this pregnancy. When I visited the hospital earlier this week, they changed my due date based on the nuchal scan, so I'll be having amniocentesis before the end of the month, which will lead to decision making.

12 on the 12th album except for November, I took photos on the 12th day of every month last year. As part of the membership at Simple Scrapper, Jennifer created an album template that I'm going to use to put all my 12 on the 12th photos together.

School holiday fun There's only 3 weeks until school starts again, so we're going to have some small adventures, in between vacation care days.

Getting ready for school The kids need new shoes, uniforms, school bags, heck, they need everything new this year, so we've got some shopping trips ahead of us.

Do you have goals for this month?


  1. I have many, many goals for this month. Too many. But I like to bite off more than I can chew and chew like crazy, you never know where you'll end up. I am sure I will be chewing more next month when all my children are at school!

    1. I can just imagine the projects on your list once school goes back!

  2. Just stumbled upon your blog as I began to post again in mine. Sending you good thoughts towards your pregnancy. . .wherever that path may lead.

  3. Keeping you in my thoughts Cate...look aft yourself !

  4. This month I'm planning to exercise regularly, eat healthy, be more active, read six books, and hopefully spend a couple of days in my scrap room with the new supplies Robbie got me for Christmas. Hope y'all have some great adventure these next few weeks!
