March is here! Goals for this month

March is here!  Luckily cold weather and grey skies are keeping me from getting too excited for spring.  I've got 12 daffodils poking up in my flower bed, and the other day it was LIGHT when I woke up at 7am.  Winter is ending, but spring is not yet here.  

Highlights for this month include a calmer month without visitors (both having guests and not having guests are a highlight for me), and a long weekend away near Bournemouth with the in laws.  It's also the end of Q1, so a last ditch effort to finish any Q1 goals!  I'll hopefully take a planning and general life maintenance day on 31st March, so looking forward to that as well.

March Professional Development Book: Drop the Ball by Tiffany Dufu

Also, I am going to try and include more photos in my blog.  So, here's some recent very expressive four year old boy art:


  1. Love the art work! So cute! Your March goals sound like just the right blend of ambitious and reasonable.

  2. Is that a dragon? It's a really good dragon, if you ask me!

    I feel like your goals are totally doable. Good luck!

  3. Love the artwork; seriously, that's better than I could muster!!

    I read - and enjoyed - Drop the Ball. I really should re-read it because I really need to start dropping the ball on some things again! I'll be curious to see what you think!

  4. Those are great goals! Ugh, it reminds me that I have to do my own photo albums!
