This year is going to be busy, busy, busy! It is going to be necessary to be extremely organized and prepared to accomplish all of the goals I have for myself.
First, let’s talk about school goals. I plan to complete my Junior 2 semester of nursing school with straight A’s and my sanity intact. To do this, I am going to need better time management. I need better routines, more efficient use of my time, and a stricter sleep schedule. I also need to prepare and plan healthy meals and snacks so that I do not fall into the same old habits of junk food and late nights.
Next, I have some house goals. I would like to get trees planted behind the pool, paint the garage, and replace the granite and tile in our kitchen. To accomplish this, I will try to pick up extra shifts at work (when my schedule allows), I will be more conscious of our spending in other areas, and I will spread these projects out throughout the year (Spring, Summer, and Fall).
And finally, I have family and personal goals. For our family, I would like to make “date nights” a priority. Not just for Nick and I, but also date nights with the kids. I recently surprised Emi with a fun day out together and I was reminded of just how important (and fun!) these outings are.
My word of the year is PLAN. It takes a plan to accomplish any goal and I realize “the plan” is the part that often trips me up. When I plan, I succeed. When I fail to plan…it’s a plan to fail. So planning in all areas of my life…school, meal prep, family time, etc.
Here’s to the best year yet! Bring it, 2019!
