April Goals

Can you believe that the first quarter of this year is already over?  It's April already, and time to post my April goals.

Spiritual: Continue with daily devotions/meditations; attend the monthly prayer meeting, if possible (don't know when it is scheduled, yet).

- Outside: Continue to spruce up the garden.  We are now under additional mandatory water rationing, so I might have to rethink my plans for the front garden (plant more drought tolerant/succulents, etc.)

- Inside: Continue to clean and declutter: my goal is to declutter 10 items a week, this month; also need to get the donations organized and call for a pick up; focus on the 3rd bedroom which is my guest/crafts room (want to organize the closet, file cabinet, desk and clear surfaces).

Daughter:  Plan to visit her this month.

Family:  Send sympathy card; keep in touch by phone and emails, etc.

Friends:  Get together with neighbor for coffee; e-mails & phone calls.

Career:  Continue to manage work load efficiently.

Finances:  Continue to keep a spending log.  Keep to the grocery budget of $75.  Pay property taxes (and regular monthly bills). 

Health:  Work on better nutrition (increase vegetables), more exercise and more sleep; ideally, I'd like to lose 5 lbs. 

Leisure/Crafts/Hobbies:  Continue to sew from fabric stash.

Productivity and Time Management:  Continue to make efficient use of my time and be more productive. 

Stating monthly goals keep me focused.  On the other hand, I have a tendency to make unrealiztic goals which are hard to attain and set myself up for failure! 

Have you made any goals for April?
