Decorate For Christmas
Our November schedule is already really full. With my birthday and Thanksgiving and a couple of trips, we’ll be really busy. I want to decorate our tree immediately. I know, I know. Everyone says I’ll wish I hadn’t. But I don’t want to be rushing to get it done, and I want to have time to enjoy it. So, I’d like to do it in the next couple of weeks.
Finish Christmas Shopping
Between Zulily and Rue La La, I’ve nearly finished my Christmas shopping. But I have a couple of small things left I want to get the boys and Todd. I want to get as much done as I can before the rush and the traffic of December hits.
Host One Family For Supper
This has been one of our goals all year. We have a big Sunday School dinner scheduled for this weekend, but I want to have a couple of friends who are new to town to our house. This has been my favorite change all year and I never imagined this would be the “resolution” that would mean the most to me.
Read Two Books
Pregnancy brain continues to make it hard to clear my mind to be able to read. But I have been reading, and I have a couple of other books I want to read in November. (Updated reading list coming up soon!)
Have A One-on-One “Date” With Each Boy
With the busyness of the upcoming season, I want to make sure that we’re not lost in all the motions of the holiday chaos. And I want to make sure that both of my children feel “seen” and heard. So I’m making a goal for Todd and I to each have a one-on-one date with each boy. And I’d love for this to be a resolution for each month for 2015. It could be harder with a new baby, but that’s also why it’s so important to me right now.
Start Working on the Nursery
Speaking of the baby, we’ll be starting getting the room ready for our little fella to take up residence here. I can’t wait to announce his little name. I’m excited about the plans for the nursery!
How about you? What are your goals for the month? When do you decorate for the holidays?
