Mama's Mission of the Month (September)

So here we are in the month of September and I have some things on my to-do list. Being new to homeschooling, and with a little one on the way, I am trying to be creative with my tasks around the house. I'm not sure how well it's going yet, but I have a rough schedule made up and a few things I want to check off my list before the winter comes.
Anyway, accountability is a huge motivator for me. So, I am linking up with Mama Jen for my Mission of the Month for September.

Mission of the MonthTask 1-Clean Laundry Room: I did this once before (see HERE). However, in the months leading up to starting our homeschool, the laundry room became a "storage room." While my husband was working on getting our school room together, I needed a place store schooling materials and school room items. Needless to say, things are now a bit disheveled! (Also, one of our dogs, poor little Biscuit, died this summer. Our dogs' dishes are in the laundry room and I hadn't had the heart to move her bowl just yet. But, I think it's time now.)
Task 2-Get Back to Crochet: I have always had a love for crochet because of my sweet GrandMommy and my Auntie. I've made quite a few pieces over the years, but it's been quite a while since I've taken the time to complete a project. My goal is to begin an afghan for my living room in fall colors (click HERE to see). I love decorating for the fall and this afghan goes well with my couch pillows. Also, I want to start on a baby blanket for my little bundle who's on his way. My son says that the baby's blanket should be black or green. . .LOL! I'm pretty sure I'm leaning towards the green!

So that's it for now. I'll be back next month to let you know if my tasks are complete or not. If you want to join in the fun, head on over to Mama Jen's to link up!


  1. You must have a large laundry room in order to store so much in it. My laundry room is like a little closet, so it stays fairly clean by default because I can't put much in there. :)

    I'm sorry to hear about your little doggie. Maybe you can find a place to donate those dog bowls. Maybe then, someone else with a pet dog could put them to good use.

    I was unaware that you were expecting! :) Congratulations! When is the big due date? Oh, this is so exciting that you will be adding another member to your family.

    I pray that your new home schooling adventures go well. :)

  2. Goals are great motivation. I bet you will do both with great success. :)

  3. Mrs. Wildflower,

    Hey there!

    Well, actually, my laundry room was one of the places that we had schooling materials in. (there was also the garage and a bedroom, too!) But anyway, it still needs some straigtening our.

    I'm not sure what I'll do with the dog's bowls, yet. But donating them is certainly a great option. My husband had the little dog before he and I even met, so she had been "a part of the family" for a long time. :(

    Thanks for the well wishes on homeschooling and of course, the little one. If you look back in this post and click on the link ("a little one on the way"), you'll understand why I hadn't said much about the little one.

    We are truly blessed and so unspeakably grateful for God's blessings!

  4. Anne,

    You sound so confident for me! :) I hope I can do it. . .we'll see.

  5. I too found you over under Mama-Jenn's link up and I'm so glad I did! Your blog is a blessing!

    Sorry to hear about your doggie! I'll be praying that you complete everything this month! Make sure you take it easy, though....ummmmm, baby boy coming soon!

  6. Genyne,
    I agree; I'm glad we "found" each other. . . I may have said that before, but it's been a blessing already.

    Yes, hopefully I'll complete everything...I hope to cross one thing off of the list this week. . .we'll see. But, yes ma'am, I will take it easy. :) Thanks.

  7. Sounds like some great goals! I am planning to re-learn to crochet so that I can teach my daughter! I vaguely remember learning how to do it when I was a little girl!

    Thanks for linking up!

  8. Hey Mama Jen,

    I'm glad you stopped by to visit!

    I learned how to crochet when I was a little girl and I hope to teach my daughters as well.

    I'm glad you have these missions; it's been helpful to me so far.

    Talk to you soon!
