February was a crazy month for me. I was at school 12+ hours a day on many occasions. That's what parent/teacher conferences, working on a teacher leadership group presentation for the school board, and planning a trip abroad for students will do to you...oh yeah, and just trying to keep up with my kids on a daily basis!! ;) However, even with all of the time I spent away from home, I don't think I did all too badly. I'm sure you'll see where I slacked...
- Weight loss - Still down 4 pounds, but that's all. The first thing to go when I got busy was my gym routine that I've had since November. At least I didn't gain anything back...Gotta look at the bright side, right?!?!?!
- Being a better organizer/housekeeper - This has been pretty easy actually. I'm in a great routine, and M is helping me out a lot. I feel so much more together now!!
- Spending more quality time with M - I was embarrassed that I did so poorly at this in January, especially when I found out that M read my update on February 1 where I admitted that I did a terrible job at keeping this resolution. I am HAPPY to say that I think I made up for it in February. We were home a lot more this month, which made it much easier. We also hired a babysitter on TWO separate occasions so that we could get out together: once for a Badger Hockey game that M won tickets to, and once for a friend's birthday party. It was so nice to hang out together more again. I think it's just what we needed!
- Making more quality time for myself - I feel like I put myself on the back burner a little more this month, but partially because of all of my work obligations. When I'm not getting home until 7:00 or 8:00, then frantically trying to spend a minute or two with Evie before bed, then picking up around the house, saying hi to M, and thinking about maybe working out (see weight loss goal, I only thought about working out...), sleep became my "me" time. March is a lot less busy, and the first week of April is spring break. It will be easier to take care of myself this month.
