Week ??

Okay I definitely got off the habit of posting every week.

All in all though I still try to keep the list in mind when I do things. I finally visited the Adams estate which is 3 historic landmarks. I really loved it. I have always loved Abagail Adams and her relationship with her husband has always fascinated me so it meant so much to see it all first hand.

I have made progress on a couple of other list items - made Fiona a Sock Monkey for Christmas and a few other small goals. I think the majority of my goals are going to be New Years Resolutions.

Week 7

This was a pretty good week. I started the Christmas Stockings, and had my girls' day in NYC. The girls' day was a lot of fun and we saw Wicked which was great. I also continued on my keeping toys off the floor at night. Even when I came home from NYC at 12:30am - I still stopped and picked the toys up off the floor. I was so impressed with myself. I also started a new blog. It is really about my weight struggle and where I hope to go from here. I also started my "other" blog that I want to keep going for at least a month:

This week I hope to really move forward with my weight issues, mail out pictures to the out of town relatives (Maybe halloween pictures sent out the afternoon of the 31st!) This week I am also planning on touring the Adams estates. We have lived in this town for 6 years (In the area for more than 20 years!) and I have never been to 5 of the 6 historic places in the town. I am hoping to visit at least 4 of them on Wednesday.

Week 6

Slow week. I kept up with keeping the toys off the floor overnight & did 1 romantic thing for Warren. Left a little not about how wonderful he is in the newspaper. I have no idea if he saw it yet! :lol:

Week 6

This was a good week. I wore makeup everyday this week - so that is another item OFF the list. I was also able to start a couple of things - I tried hot & sour soup, one of the things I have hated since I was a kid. I still hate it. I was also able to squeeze in a visit to our local library - which is also a historic site. It is a beautiful building and Fiona and I had a great time walking around it.

Week 5

Well I completed two of my monthly goals this week. I was able to keep my bureau clean for one month – and keep my to do lists in books for one month. WOO HOO! I am so excited! Hopefully I can keep both up because I find them so helpful. The girls’ day in NYC is planned for the end of this month. I am super excited about that too. We are taking the train to the city – seeing a show and having dinner – then taking the train home. It will be a long day but so much fun. I also packed my lunch every day last week – I just have to do that 3 more times. I also started wearing makeup everyday this weekend – hopefully I won’t have to restart that one too!

I have been doing really well with not stressing out about how much Fiona eats which has always been very very difficult for me. She stopped taking her night time bottle last week – and instead of stressing about it I just changed everything up. I switched around her feedings and she is back to the right amount of formula and solids – during less feedings and going to bed earlier. It was so easy – because I didn’t stress about it.

List Change

I had to change the list - I had to take out walking to the train once a week for a full year - because Fiona will soon be starting day care the possibility of walking to the train is out. I substituted it with making something special for Fiona every Christmas which is something I have been thinking about a lot lately.

Week 4

Whirlwind of a week - my in laws were here to visit. We took Fiona to pick apples & see the Beauport mansion - making great progress on the list. We went to Woodman's in Essex so we added a new restaurant to the list. Other than that I kept plugging along on my monthly goals - I barely have the energy to write after the long visit.
