2013 Goals: March Recap

March is over, and today is the first day of April.
New month, new goal.
March's goal was to make my house a home, and I'd like to say I did that. Last night as I was laying in bed it occured to me that the month I had dedicated to my house and my home, ended up becoming the month when the most changed in my home life - things that had nothing to do with decorating or nesting in my house. Maybe I am clairvoyant, or maybe it's just a weird coincidence, but at the end of the month when I was relaxing on the couch with the kids yesterday after a very eventful weekend, I felt for the first time in so long, like my house was my home again. Even though the only room I ended up really finishing was the kitchen.
So without really purchasing anything, I'm stamping this goal completed.
We're home.

This month's goal is to have a No Spend Month.
I am super nervous.
It's not that I love shopping {I actually hate shopping}, it's more just that I'm an impulsive asshole and I went to Starbucks three times in one day a couple months ago.
What if knowing I can't do that anymore makes me feel stifled and then halfway through the month I'm all YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO I WILL BUY ALL OF THE THINGS!!!
That might be dramatic, but also entirely possible.
Anyway, here's a short list of things I will miss:

-Cow Tails from the gas station
-Everything that Target is, has, and represents
-Movie theatres
-Lunch from the best pizza place in the entire world
-Ordering pizza for the kids so I don't have to cook
-Chinese take out so I don't have to cook

Things I'm afraid of:

-Finding out I have no self control
-Cabin fever {not spending money basically means never leaving the house, right?!}
-Having to cook every. single. night. for the next month. Who can really be expected to do that?!

Anyway, wish me luck.
