How Did I Do, April?

Since tomorrow is the One Little Word Linkup and I feel like the posts are way too long if I touch base on April and fill in my goals for May, I'm just going to update you really quickly on April.  Tomorrow you can see my new goals for May. If you have any posts about your goals for the year, please link up. We'd love to read and cheer you on!

Here we go!



Home
*Buy curtain rods and hang curtains (the curtains I bought were way out of our initial budget, but I loved them...so we have to wait and get the rods. I'm hoping this month so it's going on here.) Did NOT do. So I decided that I needed new workout shoes...badly. I use them every day and I needed a new pair. So the budget went toward those this month. May, new curtains coming at you
*JaiseAnn's room
*Print off pictures from our trip to Seattle (before JaiseAnn was born) and Charleston (before we were married) to add to our gallery wall in the kitchen
*A print for one of 3 places in our house we want them.
So none of this happened. Big fail on making the home more homey this month. 

Motherhood
*Make and hang bird feeders So we painted ONE bird feeder, but haven't hung it yet. 
*Invite for 2 play dates
*Finish JaiseAnn's baby books (seriously, this one is on here each month. I hope I can really complete it this month) Oh my gosh, you guys! I still haven't done this yet. I'm putting it in my calendar and think I might actually finish it next month. We will see. I'm really really close. 

Marriage
*Spend time with Zach each night

Health
*Strength training two days a week I did this-and felt really good about it, but I stopped feeling sore after my workouts about two weeks into this--even though I changed up the workouts each week. I'm not sure what that means. I tried to talk to my brother about it, but he and I have different outlooks on exercise and health in general so I left that conversation just as confused as ever. So if any of you out there can tell me. Do I need to feel sore? If I feel fatigued and tired during the workout is that enough to build more muscle? I don't like strength training--I love cardio exercises--in many different forms I've learned--so I am new to this world. 
*Eliminate excess sugar This was a huge success for me overall. I learned a lot and am following this through next month. 

Spirituality
*Review Priesthood session of conference talks and then write up a schedule for studying the talks from May-October (more to come on this I hope) Still need to write up my schedule
*Continue listening to podcasts on Mormon Channel
*Go to the temple

Career/Education
*Apply for two jobsI also interviewed for two jobs this month and sort-of interviewed for a third. I got one job and am waiting to hear back on the other two. One of them I *think* I really really want. All are super part-time and from home...and in the field of education. I honestly am just taking it all a day at a time and am feeling incredibly grateful that I can even apply for jobs like these right now. 
*Finish conducting experiment
*Analyze data Just now starting to analyze--it will be done by the end of May, though, because I have to have my whole entire paper turned in by May. So yeah, don't be surprised if my goals for next month are pretty slim. 

How did April treat you?
