As a mom, there is always, always something “to do”. I decided a long time ago that I didn’t want to be a human “doing”, but a human being. Now I set goals for myself. I just write it on the calendar and go for it. Anything that I don’t get done, just carries over to the next month.
As a family, we also set 5 year goals and one year goals, usually in January. We realize that time can just slip by. Man mantra these days with a 5, 3 and 1 year old is “The days are sometimes long, but the years are short!”
For example, we know that in 2013, we have to redo our roof as well we want to go and visit special friends in San Francisco and Williams Lake. We have also started saving to take our whole family to Europe in 4 years. If we don’t plan for it, we probably won’t do it! It helps me to be organized!
