February Goals.

As much as I complain about time going slowly sometimes, it really does fly. I can't believe that February is here already, and more so, I can't believe I spent all of January in my house! I can probably count the number of times I left this apartment on my hand, which is crazy, and the next month will bring much of the same, but it will also bring much excitement, preparation and impatience...bring it on February!

Ok, time to check in on my January Goals (the ones in bold I actually did):

*Rest and stay off my feet as much as possible; grow this baby
*Re-do/clean up blog
*Blog at least twice a week
*Buy a car seat, look for a 2nd hand glider, choose crib
*Write out our birth plan
*Finish my 52Qs
*Finish my December Daily
*Pack as much as I can (meaning Dan will pack with my direction)
*Buy more 0-3 months clothes for baby
*Look into photographers for Heather
*Get as much done as possible for work (from home)
*Get my short-term-illness and Mat Leave sorted out
*Finish Jelena's mini; mail
*Record v-log for Weeks 26-32, take 30.5, 32.5 and 34.5 shots
*Go through house, decide what to give away/throw out/keep
*Buy thank you cards from Etsy for after baby
*Cut my hair
*Work on post-baby budgets

As you can see, I came up pretty short on the scrapping front, and a few other things as well (things that involve me leaving the house mostly). This month I'm trying to keep my goal list extra short and easy, since it could all change in an instant if I go into early labour.

So here we go:

*Book storage facility in Sussex (decide on move date)
*Rent U-haul (decide on move date)
*Finish packing all non-essential stuff (to go in storage)
*Prepare/pack what we will be bringing with us that we are not using at the moment
*Get my hair cut
*Work on 52Qs (another 10-15)
*Finish a ball and a half of yarn on baby blanket (50% of blanket)
*Buy thank you cards/baby items from Etsy
*Cook and freeze a few meals to have for after the baby
*Record v-log for Weeks 32-38 (if I get that far), take 36.5 and 38.5 Week shots
*Look up BB support groups/classes in Moncton/Sussex area
*Read most of this book:

*Play a little bit with this book:

I can think of more, but I'll leave it at that. This is it, this is the last month that I will not be a mother...it's a lot to take in, and I'm sure it'll be even harder-and yet even more rewarding-than I could ever imagine, but that's the adventure we're about to embark and I honestly can't wait.

I'll be blogging as much as possible throughout the month, but if you don't hear from me for a little while, that means that bébé Flynn has decided to present himself early to the world. I'll be sure to update as much as possible though (there's a chance we won't have Internet where we'll be staying in March and April, so we'll have to see what happens.)

Be back later this week with some more 52Qs and maybe a few of the lists above :)

Do you have any goals for this month? It's hard to feel motivated in the dead of winter, but we can make it through!
