GAM '09 - March Goal

Ok, so February wasn't quite as successful as January for me or Vermillion Rules. I can blame the short month, or the week of sickness throughout the family, or the visit at the end from my best friend. Or it could be that I simply hate laundry and putting clothes away so the motivation was nill to get the closet organized. However, in the spirit of the goal, I did get quite a bit done around the laundry room. We had a MOUNTAIN of laundry down there, and also a mini-mountain of Ace's outgrown clothes in his room that needed to be stored away. During February I was able to get the MOUNTAIN in the laundry room down to a mere hill and forward progress is being felt and I was able to organize Ace's drawers and get all the 0-3 boxed up and 90% of the 3-6 boxed (any still not boxed he can still wear). So while I didn't even begin to touch the closet in our bedroom - I did wash a TON, including the end of maternity clothing and get that all boxed up too! Anything that I did wash during February was actually folded and put away, so naturally to some degree the floor in the closet has gotten cleaner as we've worn it :) Ah well - not all goals are met in their entirety!

Upward and onward I say! So March's goal... touch up the paint in the bathroom. When we first painted the bathroom we did the cardinal sin of painting of merely taping over the outlets/towel holders/etc.. we didn't strip them down to the bare bone hardware and tape over that - so then when the tape came off.... so did the paint near and around. Also there's always those few spots with holidays that I'd like to cover up... and then of course the dreaded spots on the tile or ceiling that I'd like to clean off where paint shouldn't be. So that's my goal to complete a little touch up paint in the bathroom. I'll post some before and after pictures at my next goal.

I think it's a good idea to blame the lack of goal finishing on the short month :) Those extra two days we normally have are usually the days that I finish everything! Good luck with this month's goal-that's one I need to get around to as well.

Good luck, girl. I can barely keep up with the dishes and there are only two of us here. I also wanted to let you know I gave you a nice thank you on my blog for the cool sachet and gift card. :)

Haha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who does stuff the lazy way sometimes. :)
I really need to organize my closets, but I seem to have a lack of motivation as well. :)
Good luck, you'll definitely need to post pictures for us. :)
On a side note, I had some bacon for breakfast. Yum. :)
(Now everyone who reads this will think I am crazy).

I didn't reach my goals for Feb. either. Short month and flu for 5 out of 6 of us. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
