I toyed with the idea of making a fake April Resolutions post, but it seemed like too much work for very little payoff. Where's the satisfaction in tricking you guys about my personal goals for this month? No, there's no fun in that. Besides, last year's prank would be difficult to top.. and insensitive to recreate!
With all that said, here are my real resolutions for April:
Get Our Important Documents in Order
The fact that I've had the following picture pinned on my "Organization and Cleaning Tools" board for seven months is a sure sign that official papers and documents aren't necessarily my thing. While I'm pretty sure we have most of the documents we may need, the fact that I don't know exactly where they all are makes me a little uneasy. Our filing cabinet could definitely use the organizational overhaul, too.
There is one document I know for sure that I need to acquire... I'm embarrassed to admit that I still haven't changed my last name with Social Security after a year and seven months of marriage. It hasn't caused any problems thus far, but I really need to do that!
Keep Up the Momentum Gained From the Cleanse
Organize the Laundry Room
Our Laundry Room not only contains our washer, dryer and other laundry-related items, but it also serves as a general storage space and our pantry. It's pretty cluttered in there, and there are bags and bins full of who-knows-what that I need to go through. MAYBE I'll even make it look super cute if I get particularly inspired (but I'm not promising anything).
Get at Least 15-30 Minutes of Sun Every Day
Bring on the Vitamin D! I knew I was fair-skinned, but seeing this video made me realize just how pale I am. I'd fit right in with the Cullens!
To be clear, the goal is not to be tan. The goal is to have healthy, glowing skin and to take advantage of the health benefits provided by the sun.
I'm sorry to be so secretive, but this would affect some of the people who read my blog, and I want it to be a surprise! All will be revealed in April's Report Card at the end of the month, I promise. For now, this is only here to serve as a personal accountability tool.
Organize my Computer/Online Storage
Lately I've been struck by how disorganized my computer life is: unorganized photos on my desktop, unknown blogs in my Google Reader, unfindable recipes that I just know I'd pinned on Pinterest. Email files, blog planning strategies, online photo storage.. I'd like to get everything organized this month in order to make my digital life a little easier.
There you have it! No April Fools' pranks here :) What are your goals or resolutions for April?
