Alma 32:41

...Nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

Goal updates, a cute necklace

I took a shower every day. :)
I tried to put Silas in his crib a few times... new goal there...every time he falls asleep I will put him in his crib
I didn't always get up at 7:30 but I think I was usually up by 8 so not too far off.
Pretty good on the food thing and making progress on cleaning every time.

So for next week... Get it more perfect.  And we have friends coming over to
Cleaning schedule- Mon- playroom and entryway
                              Tues- Bathroom and Hallway

Kaden was invited to a b-day party for a girl in his preschool. here's the cute little necklace I made here from an old T-shirt and ribbon and beads I already had on hand. :)  I got the basic idea from this site - which got it from Anthropologie. :)

haha forgot the goals

I have so many!  So I need to focus on just a few and hopefully they will help other goals fall in place.

First- I need to put in place a routine.  It will help me get things done and help Silas sleep. 
Mini goals for this goal

1. Get up at 7:30 everyday
2. Take a shower every morning before Matt leaves (getting trickier since he is now working longer hours)
3. Make Silas take a nap in his crib between 9-10.  Have to wait for him to get better from his current cold but then it will be tough love time.
4.  Make boys pick up playroom twice a day- once before lunch and once before dinner.  They can put ongoing projects/games on the shelf to continue to play with them.
5. eat meals/snacks at regular times and clean up right after

Craft Goals to go with this goal

Make a chore chart with my Silhouette that I got for Christmas!  Woohoo!

Overall goal
I really like V&Co's choice of the word Healthy.  So here's to a Healthy routine with more sleep, more cleanliness, more sanity, and less yelling!  I've already accomplished part of my goal by making some doc appts that I needed to make in order to get me physically healthier.  Yay!  Here's to progress- slow but sure!
