Goals for New Job

Each year for the last 10 years of my corporate career I have been responsible for identifying and meeting annual and quarterly goals. I am trying to go into my new job as a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) with the same mindset. As I think through things that are most important to me here is my list:

1) Plan daily learning activities for each of my children

2) Get my big kids involved in extracurricular activities
     -Emma Grace = Gymnastics
     -Taylor = Tiquando
     -Both kids = swim lessons

3) Set a budget and adhere to it, with the whole family
     -I have never been much of one for budgeting. I have really never had time to budget and try to save money. I have always done things for convenience. Easy meals, housekeeper, $35K a year on childcare. Well I am hoping this changes, and I have more time to consider options in the future.

4) Limit TV time to Saturday mornings only

5) Try to cook healthy for my family

I will check back in at 90 days, 180 days, 270 days and a year and see what kind of progress I have made. I don’t think that SAHM’s get annual raises, and that is going to take some getting used to!

Donto be hard on yourself if things don't go as planned. Ease into it. Sometimes a shower is your biggest accomplishment! I love you and am excited for your new career. I can already tell your going to be the best!
