It’s hard to believe we’re done with two months of 2013. And these new goals are the best.
Plan meals … Meal planning really helped our weeknights run smoothly this month. We stuck to it pretty well and ate at home almost every night. I spent 10 minutes making the plan on Sunday morning and then we did a quick shopping trip after lunch. Easy peasy and I’ll be keeping this up going forward.
Take the stairs … I was able to take at least 10 flights of stairs every work day. Is it bad that it’s not getting any easier? Oh, well. I will keep on keeping on.
Relax and play … We had a great week in Phoenix, which was a nice time to relax and play as a family. We also took Henry out in the snow for the first time in February and did lots of playing on the living room rug.
Make time for us and for me … Ryan and I had several one-on-one dates this month – once a day trip to the Biosphere in Tuscon and once to our favorite Chinese restaurant for a Saturday night dinner. Henry’s early bedtime also allowed us to eat dinner together regularly at night and talk. It was a nice “us” time. For “me” time, I enjoyed time with friends and craft night and even some quiet time for sewing. It was a great month for me and we.
Go outside my comfort zone … The blogging class I taught was something that was way out of my comfort zone. And I’m so glad I did it. (Thank you to all of you for your support and kind words.) A few other things are on the horizon that are beyond my realm of experience. But I’m realizing that the being stretched makes me stronger.
