I set monthly goals to focus on things I care about throughout the year. Here are my monthly goals for December 2021.

Setting Monthly Goals – How Was November?
I knew November would be busy, so I kept goals simple. The kids and I thoroughly enjoyed a week if my parents, and we spent a lot of time with my sister R and her family too. It’s so nice to have siblings living near my parents now! Another sister will move out there at the end of this month. I wish I could be closer as well.
My friend G came to visit, and it was wonderful to catch up with her! We’ve been meeting up over zoom for the past couple of years, but in person is so much nicer. She lives in LA, so we don’t meet up often in the best of years, but these past two years made it especially challenging.
I kept swimming, and have enjoyed ice skating with my kids, especially since we invested in good ice skates! We even went with friends once, which was very fun.
Despite setting simple goals, I still fell behind on the Linus mystery quilt challenge. I am working on catching up!
Mike and I enjoyed the dates we managed to schedule. Less blogging happened than I would have liked, but we were dealing with some kid health issues that needed to come first. I did get some old posts updated, which was nice. I have so many more to work on still!
I’m keeping December goals simple, too, because I love simple holiday seasons.
- Keep swimming. This is just a sanity thing for me right now. Focus: mindfulness
- Keep ice skating. Our rink has a Christmas tree in the middle right now, which is fun! Focus: education
- Finish the top of Linus mystery quilt challenge I signed up for. Focus: education
- Help my daughters with their various sewing projects. Some are handmade gifts, while others are things they were already working on. Focus: education
- Enjoy my son’s choir concert and basketball games. Focus: mindfulness
- Sing Christmas songs and read our Christmas picture books. Focus: gratitude
- Enjoy Christmas and celebrating New Year’s Eve. I’ll be picking a new Word of the Year!
We might also make gluten free gingerbread houses, but I’m not making that a goal. They are fun but a lot of work! I will print off this cute gingerbread house glyph for my youngest, who probably doesn’t remember doing it in earlier years.
What are you looking forward to in December? What goals are you setting?
