Wherever did February go? Time to write the March Monthly Goals and talk about what’s happening behind the scenes on JeddahMom.
If you are new here and wondering what Monthly Goals are, let me give you a quick introduction. Every month, I recap what I have been doing behind the scenes on this blog. Then I share what I am looking forward to in the coming month. This helps me keep intentional in my motherhood journey. At the end of my post, I link to a few other mom bloggers who make monthly goals too. We inspire and keep each other motivated.
This past month, I have had a few ups and downs.
1. Failed recipes. The ‘100 Recipes in 2018’ craze got fun. We should be on #18 this month as we are doing 9 recipes every month but… we are on #12 because I have lost steam. The few recipes we tried this month didn’t turn out that good. We did add a few favorites though. You can find the updates on JeddahMom Insta Account.
2. Less internet. AI switched off my internet in February. I am so happy I did but that meant I couldn’t finish my blog related deadlines on time. What I did was turn off the notifications on my phone. No more Whatsapp all day. This was after I decided to adopt my husband’s habits. 😉
3. Punch needling– All that time meant a new craft. I am addicted and in love with this new craft! Video and full post coming.
4. New yarn and blanket– I have discovered a new yarn. A video and full post about this too coming soon. It’s awesome girls!
5. Revising with kids: Quran, reading, math. Exam season is starting April. My afternoons are now spent revising everything.
6. A lot on the discipline, lots of rules in place. We have revised ALL our schedules and routine charts this month. It was an eye opener because this time my 10 year took the lead and actually told me that this is how he wants it. I guess, when kids come to that age they want to be more in control. I am happy that he is being so responsible.
Coming up in March:
On the blog, I am celebrating Women’s Month. Stay tuned as I introduce you to my favorite person and inspiration later this week. Then through the month we celebrate our own mothers.
- Doctors appointment– I am going in for checkups this month. Already I have taken my appointments but… I am scared. Please remember me in your prayers. I haven’t been well.
- Gym membership– InshaAllah I hope to find a gym too. When your health starts failing, I guess we all start thinking about going down that lane…
- End of year revision– As mentioned earlier, time for revisions for mom and kids.
- Plan the summer break – Summer break starts in Mid -May we have been told. I am already planning my trips as Ramadan will be coming too.
- Video making– I am looking forward to making a lot of videos this month. I’ll be honest here video- logging scares me but… I have so many crafts I want to talk about! InshaAllah go around to it this month.
This is my monthly goals this month plus a little motivation to try and switch off your internet if you’re overwhelmed by everything moving too fast around you. I’d love for you to join in the conversation in the comments.
