Our new city. Yay.
I…feel like making goals again. Setting intentions. Having some hopes and aspirations.
Screen detox for Theo* // I’ve been using screens to keep him busy while we packed and moved and unpacked without any family nearby to help, but it turns him into a MONSTER. Gabe can handle screens without losing it once his time is over, but toddler child is different. *(affffter our trip to Maine this weekend, driving in New England in Labor Day traffic requires screens.)
Finish unpacking // So we moved this past weekend. Mike convinced me to slooooowly unpack as we need stuff and then we’ll donate whatever we haven’t needed in a month (seasonal and items we’re saving for them to grow into notwithstanding), we’ll donated. Scary, but also moving sucks and having less to move next time sounds ideal.
Make fall fun list // We’re living in a town we LOVE in New England (we just moved this past weekend!) and it’s going to be fall soon. I need to make a list to maximize fun having. Pumpkins and apples and corn mazes and The Big E (aka: eating my way through New England)!
Floss daily // Most cliché goal ever, but, well, I’ve gotten out of the habit and I am going to the dentist this month and ORAL HYGIENE AHOY.
Find child care // Last year, I worked 2 days a week while Mike worked from home with the kids. It worked well, but this semester, I want to try getting a babysitter for two of the mornings he’s gone – then do Gabe’s education in the afternoon while Theo naps. (In addition to working a full day while Mike is home and Gabe’s at his nature program). I think we’d all benefit from getting a sitter to watch them – the boys love babysitters.
September. I can’t believe it! Gabe turned 6 yesterday. Time is crazy.
