So, March goals went pretty well.
I got half the house purged, and the rest will be done over the next 10 days, because then I have a trip to KY and the post yard sale is the day after I get home. So…everything has to go!
I haven’t been keeping up with my 500 words/day; however, I have been working. I have a little over 10K on my new novel, plus 2-5 blog posts/week. The important thing is I am developing a routine.
The plans for our homeschool next year are going well. I’d say I’m about 3/4 of the way through the planning. Then I need to print out a bunch of stuff and get the girls’ notebooks together before we move. I’m pretty sure I can do that!
Now, to usher in April with some ambitious goals!
1. Finish the homeschool plans and create the girls’ binders. Since I’m not sure how/when/what kind of homeschool set up we’ll have by the time we start the next school year in July, I’m using a notebook to hold the daily assignments for the first sixty days. I’ll be sure to pass on that info on the Growing Your Homeschool blog.
2. Now, here’s the ambitious part–50,000 words on my new novel. I know, right? On top of moving preparations, a five-day trip to KY, and regular day-to-day stuff, I’m going to pull my own version of NaNoWriMo. Color me insane! I promise, though, I will NOT over do anything. Really.
3. Moving Preparations. Now, if you don’t move on a regular basis, you may not realize everything that goes into a big move–especially an overseas move! This month I’m going to get as much pre-moving stuff accomplished as I can. This includes, but may not be limited to:
–Pre-packing unnecessary items (not a lot of pre-packing is necessary because the movers pack everything for us!)
–Whittle down storage in freezer, fridge, pantry, and cleaning closet (day after the movers come, I’ll have an open house for my friends to come take any leftovers)
–Put in service orders for the various issues around the house to be fixed
–Start scrubbing the walls, which have become an art easel for my son
–Finish the purge by going through the mountain of paperwork dating back who knows how far and repacking stuff in the garage
Did I mention that we are pretty much done with homeschool for the year? There’s a few lessons left in their math workbooks, but other than that, we do phonics and Bible time. So we’re at about an hour to an hour and a half a day. Easy-peasy.
Anyway you slice it, though, April is going to be CRAAAAAZY! Won’t you join me in the insanity? What’s your number one goal for April? C’mon, let’s hear it!
