October Goals

Time to start getting out and enjoying that fall weather! Joking, this is my list to get me out of my blankets and off my couch.

10 blog posts- Here’s the thing, I have tons of half written posts, I just never finish anything, ever. I’m an idea person, not a follow through person 🙂

Master bedroom- Did you guys just hear the angels sing hallelujah? We got the king size mattress and can finish up the bedroom now!! It’s so exciting! However, a month later, I am still having a very hard time sleeping in that thing. I like to be touching a lot in my sleep and now my body searches for Kenny all night… those beds are freaking huge!

Find a mom’s group/start a mom’s group- something that gets me out of the house, conversing with people and that gets Eli socializing with kids his age.

Halloween- I desperately wanted us to go as the Flintstones, but end of October in Idaho is not amazing for a toddler to run around in a loincloth. Which really sucks because he would have made an excellent bam-bam! We are floating around Toy Story or Peanuts characters, Eli is in love with Buzz Lightyear and has become utterly obsessed with his blue blankie- a perfect Linus.

Apple Picking- I have been wanting to go apple picking for so long and I am making it happen this year!

Friends Gathering- Between everyone’s different work schedules and various children and social activities it is a challenge to get together in groups, but I’m trying. We are trying to make a fall bonfire happen *fingers crossed*

Start going to church again/find a church- here’s the thing, I don’t know if we have found our home church yet. I don’t know how I really feel about the one that we have been going to rather sporadically. I think that to actually judge whether or not this is the place for us, we need to commit to going for 6 weeks straight. The main thing that has kept us from going week after week? Eli has gotten sick EVERY time we have put him in the children’s space. I value sleep greatly and Eli being sick and not sleeping means that I don’t sleep 🙂

Get back to being healthy- Kenny has been losing weight and for some reason the idea of one person in the house being healthy as put me in a tailspin of intense sugar cravings and the cold weather has put me into couch Kayla mood quite early. I’m considering doing a 21 day fix with Amber from Mommy’s Me Time, but I don’t know if I’m up for the actual commitment. However I need to do something to get out of this slump, I feel so sluggish and non productive,

It’s a lot to take on, but I’m ready for the challenge!
