Also - a new bloggy development for March. On my righthand sidebar I have added a new element. I want to try one recipe a week that is based on a pantry item. I will provide a photo and a link so you can try it too!

Goals for March
I tend to make monthly goals over yearly ones. I find that yearly ones are too easily forgotten. So besides my Success List that I mention here, monthly goals help me feel like I am moving forward. My goals for March are as follows:
Stop watching the news. - While I believe it is important to support the leadership that our country chooses, I would be lying if I said that the steps that the current administration are taking aren't terrifying to me. At this point there is really nothing I can do besides write my congressmen and pray for the best. I don't want to tune out completely, but I need to live within my circle of influence for a month or so. I think that means watching just the 5 minute morning news highlights and resisting the depression fest that is the nightly news. Keep my room clean. Usually I seem to focus on having a clean kitchen. It is the center of the house, so if that room is clean, the home seems more in order. I have been thinking lately that my bedroom may be a better investment of effort. If my room is clean, bed made, toys removed from the floor - it becomes an inviting place. A place that I want to retreat to. A place that invites me to read my scriptures, meditate or cuddle with Lydia. It is inviting to Shane and I for...alone time. These are things I need in my busy life. I will still clean my kitchen (of course) but after I make sure my personal space is attended to. Let my hair air dry. - I have naturally wavy (bordering on curly) hair. Thus I promptly give it a blow out and straighten it with a flat iron every time I shower. How much time would I save if I came to terms with my natural hair? - Anyone know a great hair product I can put on my hair wet that will keep frizzes at bay?
