Can you believe we’ve reached the middle of September already. Yeah, me neither. It’s already getting dark so much earlier, and there’s even a chill in the air. Fall is definitely here. Although in Wisconsin, next week just might be 90 degrees.
Now, moving on to my September goals. Let’s see how we’re doing so far this month.
Oh wait! I almost forgot…the winner of 5 books of their choice from Mascot Books! Drum Roll please….
Dana Peller! You are the winner! Please be on the lookout for an email from me with all the details. Congratulations!
Now, back to work.
Here were my goals at the beginning of the month, in case you don’t remember or need a reminder like me, followed by my progress so far.
- Get a good routine going with school
So far, I’m happy to report that September is going really well. We’re only in the first whole week of school (we’ve had two 4-day weeks,) and we haven’t missed the bus yet. We also have remembered our lunch, projects, gym shoes, and even library books. Sometimes it’s a bit of a rush, but we’re working on it. I think by the end of the month, I’ll have a good report.
- Get to the gym at least 3 times a week with the twins
Since joining the gym on September 1st, we have been to the gym A LOT. The first week, I took the twins 3 times. Last week, we again went Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, then this past weekend our whole family went both Saturday and Sunday. Even my oldest got to go play in the childcare for an hour.
- Have fun on my birthday
I had a great birthday weekend. I got to do some shopping, and spend time with my family. My parent’s took us out to a Japanese steak house on Saturday, then on Sunday, my husband took me out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. After, one of our friends met us for a drink. On Monday (Sept 7th) my actual birthday, it was Labor Day, so everyone was home. We went over to my parents and grilled out, then me and mom hung out watching the Bachelor Pad.
- Follow through with our Date Nights
Even though they were combined with other things, we’ve had two date nights so far! Woo Hoo! I’m counting my Sunday night birthday dinner, since we were alone, as the first. The second, we had a March of Dimes party. We got to get dressed up, have drinks and fancy food. We also got to share our story, which just made the night even more special.
- Don’t stress out as much
While we’re only half way through the month, it’s been super busy. So far, I think I’m doing pretty good with my stress level. We had a pretty rough sleeping night with the twins last night, so today I was a little more stressed than usual, but I’m getting to bed early, and I think it will be a good week.
So far September, so good. How are you doing this month? Has it been a good one so far?
