Focus on the Family--May

I can not believe it is May already!!!  April was a difficult month for us but we still were able to get a lot accomplished (here is our old plan).  We are working hard to spring clean, declutter and live with less.  I am also exploring becoming a "Rational Minimalist".  It is a freeing idea and I am slowly working toward that goal :) 

C has been doing well with her bedtime sleep training and though she still puts up a stubborn fight at naps, that too is getting better.  Yes, yes...the working out part of my life is still not in full swing.  I can make a million excuses (no time, I only sleep 4-5 hours a night......) but I know that I just need to make it a priority.  I don't have to train for another 1/2 marathon, just get some exercise in.  I have been taking daily walks with the kids but I need to do more.  Maybe this month :)

Gratitude
This month I am so grateful for my four sisters.  I am not only blessed with two fabulous younger sisters but also two wonderful sister in-laws.  Each one is unique and I always know I am going to have a good time when I am with them.  They are all very supportive and I am so fortunate that we are not just related.....we are friends.  I love you Kiki, LB, Am and K!

I love how you break it down and kinda have goals for all the relationships in your life, including the one with yourself. Awesome!

You have great goals. I'm too chicken to write mine down because that means sure failure for me. (I have issues.) I'm always working on de-cluttering. I'm going to check out you minimalist link.

Fantastic goals! You inspire me by your month to month goal making and the way you break it down makes it so doable!

WOW, you are so organized. I am so impressed, and I wish you could teach me. Also, would you mind coming over to my apartment after you're done de-cluttering your place? I don't know where to begin!!

I'm trying to catch up on everyone's blogs now! So great to read your updates.
