WordPress is updating, so I started typing this post in a sticky note. The intro to which I had been speculating would be something cute about how I’m not even sure if my baby monitor was going to die while I tried to write this, as I haven’t used it in two days. It’s been chaos and sickness and we haven’t had normal nap times or bed times or adult alone time in a while. (I just wanna write a blog post and play some sims, okay?)
Guess what? It died. That, in summary, is how things have been going lately.
April is normally the time I refresh. It’s never January. I read a study once upon a time (that was reiterated in a mental health seminar) that the idea of starting anew and trying to set goals mid-winter is very unrealistic. That’s actually the time to splurge, spoil yourself, and spend as much time with loved ones and doing fun things as possible. Because getting to the end of winter is HARD. Post-holiday happiness is HARD. Suddenly losing the prettiness of twinkly lights all around your home is HARD. (Okay, that last one might just be me.) So make yourself feel better! Start fresh when the world does, in Spring!
April is my GET THINGS GOING time. I have fresh bursts of energy, and I’m usually no longer in immense pain because the weather has warmed up. I had plans to start painting the house now that we can open the windows! I have birthday parties to plan! Easter is here! But alas, we’ve all been insanely sick, and when A works 28 days straight, that means so do I.
But, I’m on the mend! I have lots of exciting things coming up, including being back to posting about my life endlessly. Here’s my vague list of Spring/Summer Projects 2017. Maybe these will inspire you to start something new this spring.
- Paint the house (especially the zebra stripes!)
- Backsplash the kitchen
- DIY lamps & fireplace
- Plant front garden & honeybee seeds (get your free seeds here!)
- Join a stroller-group and attend once a month (half done!)
- Puddle jump at least twice more
- Kid friendly art projects, and DISPLAY them
- Play my first game of derby as a DRRD’y Farmer!
- Have girl-dates with my best friends, minus my baby
- Take 1hr a week for hygienic self-care.
(Do a facemask, actually blowdry my hair all the way, paint my nails, whatever)
Blog More of course!
A bit rambly, but it’s the vague outline I have for the upcoming months. Setting goals and refreshing my routine come spring-time is one of my favourite things. Thanks for checking in!
