The start of a new year is always a time to reflect and ponder on what needs to be done in my life. Today I am sharing my “Project List” with you. Most of the things on this list are things that have been on my list for years (sadly) and are related to organizing our family history. But with two children in school full-time, and 1 child in preschool part-time, (meaning I have some hours to myself each week) I think that this is the time for me to really make some headway on my list. I am posting it on this blog for a little accountability.
The first item on the list is…grow a baby! Baby boy is due sometime the middle of April. I actually made this list back in August when the kids started to school, but then week eight of pregnancy hit and so did the nausea and fatigue. Consequently, I didn’t get as much done in the fall as I would like.Right now I am in the feel-good period of the second trimester so I am raring to go with projects, but making sure that I am taking care of myself physically is a priority. If in a few months I haven’t accomplished as much as I like, at least I can say that I grew a baby!!!!
(Also, realistically I know that I won’t do everything on this list. But at least it is a place to start!)
