I probably shouldn’t be making lofty goals for myself right now, considering life with a 2 month old and a 2 year old. There’s a lot of stuff I need/would like to get done around here and it’s just not going to happen any time soon. Like, I never got to purging and organizing my attic. Like my washing machine needs a washing. Apparently, that’s a thing. More urgently, my floors need mopping, our children’s book situation is out of control and these kids are growing out of all their clothes! The thing is, I can’t even get to the more urgent needs because the daily, basic needs are the most important and I’m just starting to stay on top of those.
I was thinking of all this today and mildly stressing about how much is not getting done around here as I unloaded last night’s dishes while making dinner. And then it hit me! Why don’t I just aim to do a couple of simple things every day. Simple things that might help me to get to the bigger things? So here they are, my two housekeeping goals for September:
1. Make our bed first thing in the morning.
2. Unload the dishwasher before I pour my morning coffee.
If I can manage to do these two simple things every day, it could open up a world of opportunities for tackling more to-do’s. Or, more likely, it’ll just be 2 things I get to that I haven’t been good about in a long time. But by the end of the month, I will have worked on these 2 simple goals and hopefully they will become habits. And hopefully I will be able to make a couple of new goals next month. 🙂
Do any of you have any goals that you’re working on?
