March Goals

You guys! Fast Fix February was such a success! For once, I accomplished every goal on my list. My computer is functioning perfectly again with new RAM and a new battery, my car got a synthetic oil change {and a 75,000 mile tune up as well!}, my key fob works again {hallelujah!}, I read Where'd You Go, Bernadette? {which I absolutely LOVED!}, and I wrote some notes of encouragement. I also had one other fast fix I forgot to mention, which was changing my address with my employer which still hadn't been done since we moved last summer {but don't worry, I did that too!}. 

Even if I'm not posting my goals publicly in years to come, I think I want to try to do a Fast Fix February every year. Four perfect weeks, 28 days, to get random little chores and tasks done... the annoying to-dos that have been bothering you since the fall, that got put off during the holiday season, and aren't significant enough to roll into your New Year's Resolutions. Those are the types of goals that are perfect for the short and tidy month of February.

But March is a new, longer month with 31 days to make stuff happen. Here are my goals for the weeks ahead...

Hang six decals... I have eight decals hung so far, 24 to go. I have figured out a way to reduce the application time from 20 minutes to 10 for each one. It's basically the most annoying process in the world, BUT if I can hang six more decals I can accomplish the next goal on my list.

Hang clock... The plan is to hang our over-sized clock right in the middle of the decal statement wall. If I can get six more decals hung in the middle of the wall, we can hang the clock and I can finish up the rest of the decals around the edges later.

Finish gallery wall... Zianne's nursery is so, so close to being complete. As soon as I finish the gallery wall above her dresser it will be completely finished. Thankfully, my sister is coming into town over her spring break, so she can hold the baby in the rocking chair and direct me where to place things on the wall. It's a two man job that has to be done while the baby is not sleeping, which makes me feel slightly better about this project taking so long.

Read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest... I started this trilogy last year when we were in Australia. I devoured the first novel on our trip, finished the second one over Christmas break when we returned, and now I'm finally finishing the third one over a year later. I do not recommend this method for reading a trilogy. I had to go online and brush up on the characters and plot before I started.

Send one note of encouragement. This is actually going really well as one of my yearly goals. I have two people on my mind that I'd like to write to this month.

How did you do on your goals last month? 
Got any goals for March?

I actually finally just started on my over-sized clock that was inspired by yours! Yep, blank wood has been sitting in my loft for MONTHS. In honor of Lent, I'm trying to purge - which means tackling projects I've had on my to-do list for forever os that they can have a home and get out of my house. :) Good goals - thanks for the inspiration!

Way to go! I'm looking forward to warmer and sunnier days to encourage me to get things done...Feb was a rough month of goals for me ;-)

And I remember getting Maggie's gallery wall together for her nursery was about the last thing I did before I called it "done," now I'm just trying to get photos printed for a gallery wall in our bedroom!
