I came across a blog called, The Nectar Collective, a blog for bloggers. The article I read was Goals for February where they do a Weekly Wishes link party encouraging others to come up with goals for every week and share them with others. You would normally post on Monday but I was a bit preoccupied. Better late than never. Although it is normally called weekly wishes, since it is the first week of February, I decided to start off with writing about my goals for this month.
Last month, I wrote about how Chris and I had started envelope budgeting but since it was the end of the month, who knows if it actually worked so this month, my goal, in the financial department, is to keep track of our spending and stick to this envelope budgeting to see if it helps at all.
I started school so I have homework, chores, family and blogging to balance out right now. After spending tons of time on pinterest, looking at different ways people organized I’ve come up with a way that works for me. I now schedule almost everything; time for homework, errands Chris and I have to run, time for blogging and etc. Now to just stick to the schedule!
With Luna turning two months this Thursday, spending time with her is my main priority. I read to her, play music for her (heck she’s sitting in my lap as I type this up) but the one thing I feel like I don’t do enough is speak to her in Spanish, especially since I can’t speak it. So in order to teach her another language, I’m going to have to learn to speak Spanish.
My last goal for the month is just to spend more time with Chris and Luna without technology around. I wanna go to the park with Luna, sit and talk with Chris, heck even read a book in my free time. I just need less technology in my life. I want more personal experiences so I can capture them on camera (contradicting my less technology goal) since I don’t have a lot of pictures of us just spending time together, they’re all of just Luna. She’s growing up fast and I just want to catch those special moments.
Next week will be my first Weekly Wishes post but for now I’ll leave you with my Monthly Wishes post! I encourage you to try it yourself and see if you stick to any of them. Also, check out The Nectar Collective, they have some awesome posts especially for those learning to blog.
