These leaves should be changing soon!
Finish unpacking // Done and done! I know some people can live with unpacked boxes for years and it doesn’t bother them, but I’ve moved a lot in my life (15 times, at least) and I get itchy when there are still boxes to be unpacked.
Make fall fun list // So many fun things to do this month. Harvest festivals and pumpkin patches and orchards, oh my.
Floss daily // Not daily, but it’s now a habit. And no cavities at the dentist, so that’s wonderful. (I did, however, endure an uncomfortable conversation with the dental hygienist about how I have two boys and didn’t I secretly hope for a girl? I should have just told her my baby girl died so I could end the conversation but it’s soooo awful.)
Find child care // WOOHOO! I found someone and it’s working out beautifully. Life is so much better when I have a few mornings a week to work. Since I’m homeschooling Gabe, I do that during Theo’s 3 hours of naptime instead of work, so I have to get my work in when I’m completely child free. It’s much more effective to work without kids instead of work around them, anyhow.
Do all the fall things! // We tend to do one weekend day of boring, cozy home stuff (laundry, meal prep, cleaning up) and one day with fun outings (and Theo naps in the car – life still revolves around his nap, so we can only afford to have one skipped/crappy nap a week!). I want to cram these weekends before snow comes with lots of fun things. (If you’re local, found this fun list of ideas.)
Finish updating my portfolio and publish it. // I’ve been sloooooowly working on updating my web design portfolio with my latest projects and changing the overall function to make it filterable by type of website (blog, non-profit, small business, etc). I need to finally set aside the time to finish it!
Resume meal planning // I kinda fell off the bandwagon and lots of frozen Trader Joe’s items kinda have been dinner for the past month or two. Moving and all that. Things have settled and I want to get back in action! Chili and cornbread tonight should be a good start.
Go on a date with Mike // One of my big goals this year was to have fun with Mike. Caring for two kids while moving twice and being pregnant and losing a baby has made this year…not so easy to have fun. Hoping to put some more effort into this area.
