Happy February 29 from the Shull family!
Today, goals…tomorrow, A GIVEAWAY! And it’s a BIG one ladies. You are not going to want to miss it!
Okay, I’m going to go ahead and be super lazy right now. This month, we’re going on vacation during spring break and we’re going on a road trip over Easter. For some reason, we’ve decided to pack it in this month. So…in lieu of goals, I’m just going to focus on having fun with my family instead. Do I need to get some stuff done around my house? Yes. Can it wait until April? Absolutely. Andrew is going to be gone in April, so that’s the perfect time for me to tackle some projects. There’s a cabinet in my bathroom completely full of stuff…and yet, I never open it and use one thing from it. Why is it so full? Why have I not purged it yet? April. I’ll spring clean in April.
The only real goal I have for March is to watch every episode of Fuller House. #truth
So, here is how things shook out in February…
1. Go Meatless twice a week. Friends! Just like the “read two books a month” goal I set almost two years ago…I think this one is a keeper! I’m going to remove it from my to-do list because, I’m doing it with ease now! Watch out world…next thing you know, I’ll be vegan. #probablynot #iheartcheesetoomuch #thatbeingsaidneversaynever #ialwayssaidiwouldntgoonadisneycruiseeither
2. Get more sleep. Well, I did get more sleep this month…but only after figuring myself out. Friends, I was doing it all wrong. In my head, I kept thinking I needed to sleep in more. I kept thinking that yes, I needed more sleep…so, yes, that meant I needed to sleep in more. But NO, that is not what that meant. I am a morning person. Fight it as I might…sleeping in just doesn’t work for me. I feel cranky, rushed, and not super happy (which is the whole point of getting more sleep). For me, I need to go to bed earlier. As Oprah would say, I had an ah-ha moment. Cue Oprah cheering me on…
I do need more sleep, but for me, I need to go to bed earlier in order to get it. About halfway through February, I figured this out. Instead of going to bed between 10 and 10:30, I was aiming for 9:30…and when Andrew was out of town, I went to bed at 8:30 three nights! 8:30! I’ll always prefer waking up earlier…so, I need to focus on going to bed earlier at least a few nights a week.
3. Get Valentine’s addressed early and with minimal whining. Done. Whew. Glad that’s over.
4. Magic Eraser my baseboards. Did it! I picked a Sunday afternoon to tackle my baseboards. My Magic Eraser, clean (slightly damp) towel I headed out with baseboards to clean off. How in the world do baseboards get so scuffed and dirty? I was seriously like confused on how my family can manage to scuff up baseboards in the most random places. But…they’re all clean now. I felt very accomplished when I was done :).
That was February…tomorrow is March. In April, I’ll write me up a to-do list. For now, I’m off to watch more Fuller House and pack our bags. What are you doing this next month? What’s on your to-do list? Besides baseboards, what’s one other overlooked area that I can tackle in April? I love hearing your suggestions! You ladies are the best!
…Meal Planning Monday is up today! Five simple suppers to make your week easy!
And for grins, one last little video from February…
Happy February 29th!
