September 2019 Goals

Hello lovely readers!

I’m a few days late on my monthly goals post this time around – time has been slipping through my fingers recently, and Labor Day weekend felt like a blur.

For August I was very simplistic with my goals… I wanted to move and I wanted to get things prepared for Baby A’s arrival. I think for the most part I was able to get those completed. Obviously, we moved – I’m just working through the last of the boxes that need to be sorted through. With the baby prep there is still a few things that need to be done, but we have enough done at this point that I don’t feel a rising panic when I think about how soon she’s going to actually be here!


Now, with my due date coming up in just over two weeks, I’m definitely not playing around with a lot of goals for September. There’s really not even a lot of point in writing this post because this month is going to be all about making it through and hopefully doing more than just barely surviving.

Making it through the last few weeks of pregnancy, and then delivery. Making it through the early newborn stage. Learning to navigate what life is going to look like from now on. If nothing else happens in September, our life is going to go through a major adjustment and I’m working on giving both myself (and my husband) a lot of grace while we figure this out.

I want to say that I want to keep my house cleaned up and keep cooking dinner as often as I can, I know that’s not necessarily going to happen. I have people who will help me, regardless of whether I want them to or not, so I know not everything is just going to fall by the wayside. It’s going to be okay.

It’s hard to know sometimes exactly how things are going to turn out but right now there is little else to do besides wait and see. Until our little lady decides it’s time to make her appearance its going to be all about patience.

September 2019 = Patience and Grace.

Love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
