November 2019 Goals

Hello lovely people!

Texas has decided that it must now be winter – there was a thick layer of frost over everything this morning when I left the house and we’ve definitely broken out the heavy coats. This area just doesn’t know how to do autumn properly, I guess. Ah well.

October flew by, it seems like, although maybe not quite as quickly as September did. It was a good month though, with a lot of changes and craziness, but tons of wonderful moments mixed in.


October Recap

My goals for the month of October were simple enough and I think I can say they were all reached?! I wouldn’t say the transition back to work has been easy by any means, but we’re starting to settle into a sort of a schedule and it’s getting at least a little more normal, I suppose. The nighttime sleep isn’t perfect either, of course. We have some rough nights and we have some really good nights, but in general I’m getting enough good chunks of sleep during the night that I can function properly during the day. So I’d call that a win as well! Apart from growth spurts (which we’re dealing with right now) everything with the baby has been fairly easy to deal with. Thankfully!

I was super excited that I was actually able to spend a little bit of time with my horse one weekend. I need to drag her saddle home now so that I can clean it and then maybe I’ll be ready to get back to riding. You know, if the weather holds long enough for me to try, of course.

I’ve definitely been trying to take care of myself more, something that I’ll expand on in a future post, although it’s been difficult to really focus on it enough. So a partial win, but something to keep working on for sure!

November Goals
  • Prep for the holidays as much as possible.
  • Work on my Nanowrimo project through the entire month.
  • Make the effort to work on my mental health.
  • Get back on my horse, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
  • Keep up the journaling/planning habits.
  • Keep the house semi-presentable.
  • Possibly start our D&D group?!
  • Snuggle and love on the sweet baby as much as possible – these moments when she’s still so little will be gone way too soon!!
  • Put up at least 6 blog posts.

What do you have planned for the month of November?

Love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
