Happy April! With this new month starting on a Monday, it feels like a really fresh new start and a chance to set some good intentions. I remembered to say “rabbit, rabbit” as soon as my alarm went off this morning. Anyone else share that little tradition?
And speaking of sayings, I felt like March was the opposite of “in like a lion, out like a lamb” that it’s supposed to be. That saying obviously refers to weather, but for me personally, the month got CRAZY at the end. Between the dogs acting up and some health issues for Willie, spending not one but THREE days on a jury panel after getting a summons in the mail, and my busiest week yet of work, the end of March really threw me off course.
That said, I pretty much checked off all the big goals from March (file taxes, revamp retirement account, make a spring bucket list, and more), but the little daily ones fell by the wayside.
But that’s okay! It’s a new month, and what better time to make things new than spring and Easter. Here’s what I hope to accomplish in April:
Major spring cleaning of our home
Frost a couple of windows (that look out to our neighbor’s house—need a little more privacy in this city living!)
Work on our front yard (I’m picturing string lights, filling up our awesome custom planter we got as a wedding gift, and maaaaybe some furniture)
Prep for 2 weeks out of town at the end of April/beginning of May
Save [redacted] amount toward our emergency fund
Hang wedding pictures in our home (I have the pictures in frames—just FINALLY need to hang them!)
Wake up with my first alarm every day—I’ve gotten in a bad habit of hitting snooze like 5 times
This time of year always gives me a burst of energy as I come out of my winter blues, so I’m confident I can make progress on all of these.
Wishing you a happy first full month of Spring!
