My 4 Simple Goals

I love Elsie's idea of 4 Simple Goals so I'm joining in too http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/08/4-simple-goals-before-2011.html

I'm very goal oriented so I had a hard time narrowing it down to just 4 goals, but it'll be worth it ;) So here's my 4 Simple Goals for the remainder of 2010.

1. Move more, bike rides down the road and walks up the hill. The reward? Feeling great, and possibly a new nursing shirt to go along with those pre-pregnancy jeans that have been hanging unworn for way. too. long.

2. Playgroups with our youngest. As soon as the older kids are back to school, at least once per week we'll plan to get out of the house to meet other toddlers an mamas. I'll be rewarded with a happier toddler (she loves to be out and about) and hopefully some new friends for mama.

3. Make a batch of homemade soap. A new skill is certainly a reward and we'll get some soap, hopefully enough to share for holiday gifts too...and maybe even trades?

4. Sew for me! I've got two patterns waiting for me (I can count this as one goal though right?!). The first is an incognito diaper bag pattern called 'Go! Mama' the second is the 'Schoolhouse Tunic'. The reward, a new shirt and bag...plus overcoming my fear of sewing shirts.

ok, my goals are out there I'll update as each is accomplished! Good luck to all others participating!

Yes, playgroups are super important. Even if you only hang out at playgroup, having other like minded grown ups to talk to is a nice change!

it's so true, I went all the time when my son was little, we used to live a 10min walk from the OEYC in Belleville. Now with 3 kids a business and a 30 min drive to town I've let it slip :( owe'll head into the main group once a week and get to some of the closer outreach groups when they're near us too.
