How'd I Do... April Goals

Wow, the month of April flew by.  I forgot that today was May until I looked at the calendar this afternoon.  April was an okay month, except that I was sick with an awful virus for two weeks.  The wedding was very nice and I'm glad to have it done.  I really wish I hadn't been sick for it though.  It was kind of a bummer to be in bed sick rather than playing when all my family was in town.  Oh well.  Let's see how my goals went for the month of April...

April Goals:

Homemaking -
Organize storage room - Fail.  But this is on the short list for May.
Finish spring cleaning - Fail.  The house got cleaned for all the out of town guests, but then being sick for two weeks kinda ruined that.  We've kind of reached a point of critical mass now and have to get things cleaned.  Yesterday I started working on the bedrooms upstairs.

Cooking -
Try three new recipes - Fail.  Um, yeah, we've pretty much lived on waffles, pizza and fast food for the last month.
Start sorting through recipes - You'd think I could have at least done this while dying on the couch.

Mothering -
Keep looking for ways to include the kids with the housework - Still working on this, but I've been trying to find more ways for the kids to help.  They love to help most of the time, especially when I make it a game for them.
Set up a chore chart - Fail.

Creating -
Make some sort of art for entryway - Fail.

Financing -
Stay in budget - I actually stayed in budget last month. Yay!

Enriching -
Read a book - Oops.  I forgot to pick up the book I had on hold from the library because I was on my death bed... or at least it felt that way.  I'm back at the bottom of that 136 person waiting list again.

Sooo, yeah, April was an epic fail in the goal department.  Let's see if we can make up for it this month.

Spring cleaning... this is essential
