We didn't have friends over, the night was planned and then it snowed, but we did eat out with some friends we hadn't done so with in a while.
Date/movie night: check, check- actually had 2, one was a movie night with Garyn this last weekend and he sat through the whole Yogi Bear movie without moving
Playing games: check hasn't been a ton (considering Garyn could play them everyday) but we have played 2-3 nights a week
-Finish cleaning desk: check!
-Work hard to get Purple/Ansley's room cleared out: check!
-Stay on top of laundry and basic cleaning weekly: mostly a check, but I always want it cleaner!
Easy Tomato chicken (recipe to follow)
-Freezer Cooking day: no check... :( always next month
-make 2 new recipes this month: check! made 3 new meals, can't wait to share!
-help Tyler and us to have more options for lunch: haven't eaten out much at all for lunch so check I guess
-Do the little art project I have been wanting to try for the 2 baby showers I have this month: done!
-Work on baby bed: strike
-help Tyler with deck/door installation.....can't wait for this to be finished : strike, the snow hindered this, but we did get started and almost finished the master bath redo
(One of the two baby craft projects)
-work with Garyn on reading and counting 2-3 times a week: check! Garyn can read all 108 of his sight words and is counting well to 20, almost can get to 30 without help
-work on Garyn's cleaning/responsibilities with his playroom and toys: we are doing well with this, he doesn't automatically do it (will he ever? no!) but he obliges quickly when I say he needs to clean up his playroom and/or put away his cup and dishes from the table
-Finish "Don't make me Count to Three": DONE! yea! highly recommend to those with children
-Work on adjusting devotion time on weekends and nights I work: fairly well done, missed maybe 3 days/night the whole month
- Make prayer time as a family and on my own a higher priority: better, excited about Emphasis on Prayer study our church is doing, it has been helping more this last week
-Continue weekly cash flow budgeting: Check! we have jumped leaps and bounds about this, still spent more than budget at times on things that weren't a priority, but it has helped to curb all that nonsense spending
-Use cash only for eating out and grocery: not so much, but stuck well to the budget
-Really try to buy only what is necessary!: check as stated above
-Bathe dogs if we have a warm enough day and take them to vet or at least make the appt. 1/3 check, had 8 inches of snow at the beginning of the month but the 60 degree Saturday this past weekend gave us a day to bathe the dogs...now just need to make the appt and take them before they are dirty again!
-Make dentists appts for the 3 of us....you don't want to know how long its been since we have been! strike again!
-Make eye doc appt. : done!
-Sale 3-4 items on Ebay: done!
Well, I had felt it wasn't as productive, but it wasn't bad at all. Now on to February!
