Setting Monthly Goals for March 2023

Every month I set a few reachable goals as a way to staying motivated and focusing on what I want to accomplish. Here are my monthly goals for March 2023.

How Did February Go?

What You'll Find on This Page

Those missing 2-3 days in February really make this month fly by, so I kept February goals simple.

I did manage to work on my current quilt. I finished sewing all of those little triangles into squares, and I started sewing the squares together to make rows.

My oldest child turned 17, and we had fun celebrating her birthday. I made this Black Forest Cake, but substituted gluten free flour. I would normally use Cup 4 Cup flour, but we were out, so I used half rice flour and half almond flour. That worked really well!

I wrote up our 3 Days in North Wales itinerary, which included visiting four castles. Wales has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world! If you ever get a chance to visit this part of the world, I highly recommend it. It’s gorgeous! I also wrote about our 11th grade homeschool picks, and a cute bookmark craft. I included links to a bunch of cute ideas from blog friends in the bookmark craft, because there are so many clever ideas!

I didn’t get the math stuff started, and the sister I was going to work on it with has a concussion after getting rear ended. So I think we may have to table that project for this year.

My Monthly Goals for March

March started off with the very exciting milestone of my oldest child getting their driver’s license! The DMV was as inefficient as ever, so it took hours, but she passed on her first try and is so excited to have this added freedom.

March is super busy with activities in our house this year, so I’ll stick with some very simple goals. Peace is my 2023 word of the year, and I think simplifying life where I can is how I’m most likely to find some peace in my life!

  • Keep working on my quilt. I’m hoping to get squares done, but I should at least be able to finish rows. This quilt has more tiny pieces than anything I have ever sewn.
  • Keep blogging. Life always comes first for me, but this is a joyful space that I enjoy.
  • Keep playing guitar. I’ve actually been writing a bunch of songs, and I’d like to get some of those recorded at some point. Probably not this month, though.

What are you hoping to get done this month? Is there anything you are looking forward to?

  1. Do they not have appointments at the DMV? Here in Texas after Covid all places went to requiring a driver’s license. The nice thing about that was you are usually seen within a few minutes of your appointment. The downside, you have to make appointments months in advance.
    I want to work on more sewing, because I enjoy it, but there are always so many things to do. Seeing your goals always gets me thinking of that.

    1. Sadly this was with an appointment…

      I love sewing, but it’s definitely easy to let it fall by the wayside. Right now I try to make sure I set aside at least 15 minutes a day for it; progress is slow but it does happen most days! And I do sometimes have a bigger chunk of time free for it.

  2. Yay about the driver license for E. A loves her freedom (but we are not loving insurance surcharge ;) Sorry about your sister’s concussion – I hope she recovers quickly. For March the main goal is to finalize our summer travel plans – unfortunately, we expect the prices only go up on anything travel related. A is trying hard to battle “senioritis” and keep up her grades but she already can’t wait for the school to be over.

    1. That is an excellent March goal! I’m trying to work out a time to visit my parents this month, although I didn’t put it on my goals list. I don’t blame A for struggling with senioritis! E also loves the freedom, but our car insurance tripled.
