I don't know about you, but I'm surprised that it's the last day of March. I don't know why, specifically, because it's not like it's lasted longer than any other Marches have ... anyway.
Remember this post, where I outlined my goals for March? I set that list with a certain degree of enthusiasm, and was feeling very confident that I could check things off as the month went along. Now it's time to review, and I am dismayed to report that the only one of those goals I achieved was enjoying what the month had to offer - my birthday, St. Patrick's Day, St. Joseph's Day zeppoles, a long weekend in Rehoboth Beach, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that it all happened that way - but REALLY?
I didn't even come close on any of the other goals - and I have no idea what I was doing instead, which is the real killer. So I will give it all another try for April:
1. Get back to more regular exercise. I signed myself up for a special program at my gym that starts next week, and especially since it required prepayment, I'm likely to actually go!
2. My Agnes sweater was completely ignored during March, so I would like to get it well underway (and in a perfect world, finished) during April. I am stating now that if I end up ignoring it all of April, I'm putting it aside until the fall.
3. Clean out a closet, and get rid of things that can't be repaired and donate things no longer worn.
4. Make/fix something using my sewing machine. I have hand-sewing repair to make, but I need to clean up the junk piled on top of the machine, and actually use it!
I thought about adding another goal, as I like the idea of five things for the month. But until I can get at least one more thing off the list above, I'll stick with this group of repeats.
So, farewell, March - thanks for the fun things!
