Can someone please tell me how we got to the middle of the freakin’ year?
Everyone told me that time was going to speed up when I had a child, but I wasn’t prepared for time to go this fast! Seriously. I’m writing this as I watch my (almost!) four month old son play and I feel like I have to pinch myself. Like, this cannot be my real life, right?
I saw a meme the other day, and it was of Kris Jenner drinking a lot of alcohol. The caption was ‘When you realise it’s already June and you haven’t done anything in 2017’. I have never felt such a strong connection to a meme/video before. You need to see it. My friends say, “Oh, but you had a baby!” Whereas, I personally don’t think that counts.
I was basically incapacitated during my pregnancy, so I didn’t achieve a hell of a lot in 2016 either. (You know, if you call working two jobs, finishing a degree, moving, and dealing with a tonne of emergency hospital trips nothing. And being top of one of my classes, because I know my mother will kick my ass if I don’t mention it.) So yeah, I didn’t do a lot in 2016. As you can tell.
Now we’re in the middle of 2017 and I’m really wondering what I’ve achieved this year. I want to change that, so I’m bringing back my ‘goals of the month’ section. You know, so I can hold myself accountable to someone. Even if it’s just one person. That’ll be good enough for me.
So, here goes nothing.
ONE: Drink more water. Specifically 1.5 litres more water.
TWO: Read four books.
THREE: Get out of the house every day. It is very easy to sit on your ass when you have a young baby. Especially when said young baby is sick, but I’ve realised that is very, very bad for my mental health. I actually turn into a bit of a bitch. Whoops.
FOUR: Make ‘tummy time’ a priority. We do modified versions of tummy time, but I’m talking about the ‘legit’ baby-on-the-ground version. Caelen has a slightly flat noggin, so I am battling to reverse it.
FIVE: Write and publish three posts a week. I have so many ideas. It’s just a matter of making this blog a priority again.
SIX: Cook once a week. I keep saying that my ‘signature dish’ is going to be a toasted sandwich by the time I leave home again. It wouldn’t be terrible, but I figured I should learn how to cook ‘grown up’ food. You know, something that requires more than just mixing a few things together.
What are your goals for June?
