A Recap of January

Well for my first month's worth of goals, I think I did pretty good. Here's the recap:

SEWING: One skirt and head scarf for Lilith.One pair of black fleece pants
for Lachlan.Fabric purchased to make my sister a laptop cover.Purchased
a shirt pattern for the boys.

FOOD STORAGE/PRESERVING: several dozen egg
rolls made and frozen. Not sure on the final count, but I believe I went through
4 pkgs, totalling about 65-70 wrappers. 10 lbs of chicken quarters boiled,
deboned, and separated into 4 meals of shredded chicken

SIMPLIFYING: 1 trash bag of clothes, one of toys, and 2 walmart bags of socks

REUSED/RE-PURPOSED: two adult-sized skirts re-sized for the

WORDS WRITTEN ON STORY: 1591 plus one illustration uploaded

I admit, I procrastinated on the cleaning out of stuff. I didn't get one bag out per week, I got one bag here, one there, and then the sock ones on the last weekend. But this month, I'm already ahead :D.

I'm going to add one more goal to this list, and I'm going to challenge Mark with it too: No more "drive-by parenting". No yelling from the other room to stop fighting, no throwing answers to questions over my shoulder, it's time to engage with the kids and treat them like human beings instead of something I "have" to referee or give cursory attention to. I'm going to clear off the sidebar and we'll see how things go from there.
