1:20 AM

It's been awhile since I posted an entry welcoming the new month. I feel inspired to write one now because I am in the mood for goal setting again. I remember I started to document my monthly goals in this blog last year but I quickly went back to just using my planner. This year, I have not bought a single planner (highly unlikely but I really didn't get one purposely). I plan to utilize my computer and my phone for all it's worth.

February was quick. I spent most of the first 2 weeks preparing for Summer's 1st birthday. I'm glad that it's over and that it was a success. It wasn't grand but it was a day full of memories that we could all look back to. I'm not sure if Summer will curse me one day for letting her wear a pineapple costume.

I ended February with a rather heavy heart because I was blocked by a person in Instagram who ordered several items from me. I bought all the items in Denmark and I especially took care of her items. She used to respond to my messages until late January when she just started to disregard and not mind me. When I checked her profile again a couple of days ago, I was already blocked, so was my online store and my daughter's Instagram account. So rude! She could have just told me "Thank you for buying all those items for me. I was only joking when I asked you to buy. I really did not have any intention of paying all of those. I don't care if you hand carried all those items from Copenhagen to Manila." But she didn't! Her audacity is appalling. I was livid but I am feeling a little bit better now. I waited for more than 4 months for nothing. To get even, I posted her IG profile info in my feed so my followers can at least see how disrespectful she was for wasting my time and effort. The money I can always earn back but my time and effort are forever gone. She's a persona non grata in my book already. If she ever gets to read this I want her to know that she may be rich but she can never buy integrity. That said, I really appreciate the empathy from some of my blog followers. Case closed!

My main goal this month is to manage my time to avoid getting burned out or spreading myself too thin. Yes, I still spend all-nighters sometimes and most of the time I go to bed a little too late - 2AM or 3AM and wake up at 8AM. I'm not getting enough sleep and it's never a good practice to deprive one's self of rest.

Here are my goals this month:

— Organize my computer desktop. Arrange files and folders - alphabetical order. I created a wallpaper with spaces to categorize files/folders in different boxes (files/archive, personal, business, pending tasks/WIP, and miscellaneous). I like it and I am going to fine tune the document so I can share it as a freebie.

— Review the VFS website and take note of visa application process. We're scheduled to fly to Denmark again and a relative will be traveling with us so I have to prepare my own documents and help him organize his requirements as well.

— Create a pricing document for KT Paper Designs so I don't have to manually type in my answers when I get inquiries for my services.

— Revise the product and price list for Excellent Organics. We've recently launched new products (Grapefruit Shower Gel, Grapefruit Body Butter, Raw African Shea Butter Ultra Moisturizing Soap, Germ Buster Sanitizer Spray, Underarm Whitening Tonique and Healing Balm). I've tried using the soap and body butter and so far I am loving it.  Let me know if you are interested in trying any of our products. We currently have more than 40 different kinds of organic products for bath and body.

— Attend the blogging workshop I signed up for. I'm glad the hubby will be home again this weekend so he can stay with Summer on the day of the workshop midmonth.

— Install all the plugins I need for the Wordpress blog that I am going to launch soon. I'm so excited about this project. I will share the blog link when the blog is ready to be shown.

— Drink at least 2 liters of water every day. I tried 4 liters but I didn't enjoy the several trips to the bathroom. It just takes so much of my time.

— Delete apps installed in my phone that I rarely use. Delete unnecessary files that I saved in my laptop. I need to free up some space in my life.

— Drink my collagen supplement as advised - once a day. Even if I don't like the taste so much and the only way I could drink it is when I mix it with coffee. I've noticed a very good change in my skin especially when I wake up in the morning.

— Allot more play time with Summer. Bring her to Gymboree at least once a week so she can develop her social skills.

I hope I would be able to accomplish everything on my list. I'll revisit this list at the end of the month so I can update you guys. Do you also keep track of your goals?
