Welcome, 2018!

This year is so much like every other year in some ways and so unlike them in others.  We are all a little older…a little wiser.  Someone once told me that I didn’t know crap from apple butter.  He was right.  I didn’t.  Now, I know what I don’t know.  Then, I didn’t.

There are certain routines that happen every year at this time.  People set resolutions.  But you see, I set my resolutions for 2018 back in November.  I’ve been working on them every day I can since then.  Here they are in no particular order.

  1. Continued weight loss.  I want to do a round of Beachbody a month until I hit my goal weight.
  2. Meal planning.  I have to meal plan in order to be successful with the weight loss.
  3. Relationship growth.  I want to devote time to our relationship and develop some new habits that will spur us on to love.
  4. Soul growth.  I want to find my spiritual place and lock into it.

Those are my goals for 2018.  What are yours?


Goal #2 for 2017

My home and homemaking is my #2 goal. I want to keep my home clean and inviting.

In order to do this I use an app called Home Routines.

There are jobs for weekly tasks.
There are weekly zones (like FlyLady) to keep the house shining.
There are morning and evening tasks.

This is my best kept secret for meeting Goal #2. Plus, there’s a timer! If you follow Flylady, you know you can do anything for 15 minutes! 

Happy cleaning!
