This month was a hard one to write about. Not because something horrible happened or anything but because there was a lot going on. We moved, I’m in the last trimester of my pregnancy and now officially 9 months pregnant and it was the holiday season. So with all that it is really hard to recall things to reflect. I’ll do my best though, just for you.
December In Review
1. What was my biggest accomplishment this month?
Surviving the move, the pregnancy and the holidays.
2. What is your biggest challenge right now?
Having enough energy. I am 9 months pregnant now and anemic. I can’t breathe very well or move very well for that matter so just having enough energy right now is a challenge.
3. What things should you do differently?
I think I should know when I can push through and when I need to slow down and take a rest. It’s a challenge with this pregnancy but there are times when I over do it because I feel like I have to do it. It’s time to let other people step up.
4. What do you want less of in your life right now?
Being huge! I feel so big and nothing fits. My whole body hurts from carrying around this huge belly. I think it is time for her to come already!
5. What do you want more of in your life right now?
A clean and organized house! The condo isn’t in too bad of shape but it isn’t nearly as done as I’d like it. There are still some problem areas that need to be sorted, organized and put away.
6. What situation have you learned most from?
I learned that life is stressful but it’s not just stressful for me. That maybe I should be more empathetic and remember more often that other people can feel the same way I do.
7. Who/what are you thankful for this month?
I’m thankful for my family for getting me through another year. I don’t know what I would do without them, even when they drive me nuts.
8) How did the monthly goals go?
Eh, good and bad. I clearly didn’t post everyday which is actually the most disappointing to me. I really want to do this and be more mindful of what I post as well. Don’t be surprised if you see this as a goal in coming months. I was doing really good with using my planner every day and keeping things tracked up until the move. It got packed in a box and lived there for a while but I have back now and will be using it more often. I never made that Christmas planner and surprisingly, I didn’t need too. I didn’t buy anyone a ton of gifts and Christmas dinner was a simple ham dinner for just the boys and myself. I don’t think I took more pictures than usually do, which is pretty disappointing too. I tossed around the idea of doing 100 happy days but now I think in January I will actually do it. Brushing and flossing was a win! But to be fair that was just a toss-in so I’d have one “easy” goal. So, this month was going good until the move but hopefully I can get organized for next month and the baby won’t shake too much up.
