Recap of November Goals

  • Learn more about and foster a continuous brew kombucha. < I really can’t say enough about Kombucha. It is wonderful. When the brew was ready and I began drinking about 4 oz daily, it dramatically improved some pregnancy related digestive issues I was having. It also reduced my morning sickness and heartburn. I’ve been feeling more energetic and I didn’t catch Josiah’s cold during the week of Thanksgiving. This is all anecdotal, but it’s proof enough for me. I feel better. WIN.
  • Make homemade toothpaste. < I incorporated this into a school day, so it was both healthful and educational. 
  • Get back to my spiritual disciplines. < As always, it’s a daily learning process, but I feel like I’m getting back where I need to be. 
  • Be WAY more consistent with homeschooling Josiah.
  • Organize Josiah’s homeschool area.
  • Follow Clean Mama’s simple guide to keeping my house squeaky clean. < “Squeaky clean” would be generous, but the bathroom has been cleaner, so I’m pleased.
  • And lastly, try to enjoy this pregnancy and all that comes with it. < It’s been a much better month, and we are so excited to get to see our precious baby via ultrasound in a few weeks!!!

Goals for December 2015

  • Do some Christmas crafts with Josiah.
  • Increase exercise, specifically prenatal yoga.
  • Continue to make weekly time for making art.
  • Grow in spiritual discipline.
  • Read more and listen to more music. Watching television has become a habit in the last three months (survival mode, anyone?). I’m not anti-television, but I don’t want it taking up so much of my precious time.
  • Celebrate my 30th birthday with the people I love.
  • Start making out my #40BeforeForty List. I didn’t complete my #30BeforeThirty, but it did motivate to do a lot of things I cared about. It’s a great practice. You should try it!

I hope you have a wonderful December! Merry Christmas!
