2019 Goals – February Check In

For 2019,  I set twelve goals that I could track.  This year I set goals that were numbers based.   I can track their completion, and see how I’m trending throughout the year.  With two months in the books, I am happy to say that I’m sticking with my goals.  I’m pretty excited about the progress I’m making.  I know I won’t hit every goal, but it won’t be for a lack of trying.

I think it’s important to hold myself accountable for goals, so here is my monthly check-in.

February Around Our Household

  • Snow Days, Snow Days, and More Snow Days.  Our kids school district cancelled school all the time, it seemed.  We had snow.  There was the polar vortex.  Plus, we had ice.  It seemed like they were home more than they were at school.
  • Mini-Vacation.  On top of all the snow days, the kids had their mid-winter break.  We continued our tradition of going to the Great Wolf Lodge water park.  You can read about our experience here.

2019 Goals – January Check In

This year I set twelve goals that I could track numerically.  Each goal is pretty cut and dry.  I’ll either hit it or I won’t.  Now that January is wrapped up, here is my update for the months.

January Highlights

  • Sick.  I got a pretty nasty cold that kept me slowed down a bit.  I pushed through it and didn’t miss any work.  Truthfully, I probably should have slowed down physically a bit more than I did.  But, I made it through.
  • Weather.  The weather in Michigan has been pretty crazy.  The first 10 days or so of the month were way above average.  Then, we got stuck with a cold snap.  We had a pretty decent snowfall earlier this week, and we’re now seeing a cold snap on top of the cold snap.  This is bringing record breaking low temperatures.
  • Kids.  My son started basketball practice.  He also placed 5th (out of 19) in his Cub Scout Pack’s Pinewood Derby.  My daughter continued her dance lessons and sold over 100 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!
