Two months down, ten more to go!

ORGANIZATION

Use my Prayerful Planner every day – The month of February on the planner/journal front has been inconsistent, plus I did not decorate or embellish any pages. It continues to be a staple in my daily organization and long-term planning, but no pretty handwriting or cute stickers. Just get the job done and move on!
Decorate my office (paint, hang diploma, arrange bookshelves, etc.)
Hire a housekeeper for deep cleaning (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12) – I cannot tell you how AWESOME it is for someone to come in once a month and deep clean our home. And Miss A does an amazing job!
Unsubscribe from excessive blogs, websites, newsletters, etc.
Clean email inbox every Thursday
Organize photos and graphics on my laptop

DISCIPLESHIP

Read the Bible in a year (using 5-day method and the Slacker’s Plan) – Uh oh, I’m getting farther and farther behind on these reading plans. I’m either going to restructure my schedule or revise this list.

    Love this. I’m so glad that you have not accomplished everything on your list. You’re doing some great things though.
