I started a new planner. It's about 3" thick! A page for every day! I blocked off time for my resolutions. The biggest time hog is walking.

In the past I have needed to do things when I was able to do them - totally random, usually inconvenient. Now that I'm healthier I can live on a schedule like normal people. I've never done that before! I scheduled grocery trips and errands when they make sense. I'll meal plan around them. I hope this affects my spending. I really need to cut back. A lot. 😬

ugh, have a cold, just poking at some accounting stuff (and think i just realized i've done it all backwards :) ). it's ok... taking it easy. no emergencies to deal with. still waiting for the plumber to call. don't care when they get around to it. sunshine today. :) nice to lay here and just look at the blue sky and clouds.

My biggest one is

1. Go to bed at 9/9:15 pm. Everything else seems to depend on this.

Health goals
1. Maintain 120 - 130#. I'm right at the top of this range, and I'd like to be in the middle. However, if I gain muscle mass, this weight goal is meaningless. Instead, I would switch to staying in size 6/size small clothes.
2. Several small goals relating to gaining muscle mass, bone mass, and mobility. Won't list them individually, but I have a detailed list of things to do.

Budget goals - Many small goals that add up to "spend less money". Closely related to budget- manage my schedule better

Parenting goals - many here too, gotta get kids to do what they're told. Build on the foundation of wake/sleep routine from 2023.

General to-do list-
Paint garden shed
Paint chicken coop
Paint west side of barn
Stain deck
Paint kids' bedrooms
Make drapes for primary bedroom (started in 2023)
Garden, but don't buy anything
✅️1 of 2 kids' bedrooms painted

Working at budget mostly. I feel successful, but need to maintain it for long enough to show results.

DH has been more active with parenting in the last week. I'm so thankful! 🥰

Not doing well on getting back to 9 p.m. bedtime. Revenge insomnia is not a good habit 😔

Hope you have a speedy recover!

thanks! :) i almost feel normal at the moment. that's because i'm laying down. gladly no sinus pressure, no congestion, just a bit of throat crud. hot chicken soup with some hot sauce is magical stuff. i'll hope that tomorrow is even better than now, but perhaps it will cycle a bit a few times and then it will be gone... we'll see... i didn't even have a nap today. it's been rather strange actually. if it weren't for the really runny nose i'd not even thought i was sick at all.

Fence and garden were my only "things to do" in this. Plus greenhouse covering on porch.

Bought the tractor tiller to do garden....
Just bought approx 1k feet of fence.....
Last week bought 30 extra posts..........

Moving along well! :celebrate will use both soon as weather clears. Was too late in season for getting porch redesigned. That has to wait for this coming fall. BUT I did buy a little 6' tall by 4'wide reach in greenhouse, with shelves, to put on said porch for plant starts 👍 a compromise. Putting that together this week & everything is here for starting plants.

I'm feeling a little ahead of schedule, with things falling in place so well that it's a little scary! :hu:old
