June Goals Revisited
Well…. I treated my goals about the same way I treated my blog. Out of sight, out of mind. I didn’t read three books, but I read two. I didn’t walk Boudreaux every day. We did make a little bit more progress on Hayes’s big boy room. But, most importantly, we spent time out of the house every day. We were either at the park or at the pool and we’ve been having the most fun summer. I haven’t been eating all that well. After the beach, I completely fell off the wagon. But I feel great about myself. I think the Vitamin D does that for me!
June was a great month of fun and family and sweet reflection. We haven’t been taking life all that seriously and it’s just been nice to be intentional about family time and fellowship with friends.
All that said… I do have some July goals, if only for the sake of a blog post.
1. Read three books
Okay, okay. I put this down every month, but I love to read. I only read two books last month because I got sucked into Season 2 of Orange is the New Black. But I’m planning to read The Orphan Train, The Book Thief, and Goldfinch. What’s on your list?
2. Go to the pool four days a week
This isn’t all that challenging either. It’s the only way we can spend time outside in the summer and the boys love it!
3. Register Hudson for fall swim “team”
Hudson is quite the little fish and I want to make sure he has the opportunity to continue to do something he loves after school starts. He’s not a huge fan of soccer because he’s not super competitive. But he got really excited when I mentioned swim team to him.
4. Host friends for dinner at least once.
We had out of town visitors for a few days in June and we will have friends visiting again in July. We’re also hosting a going away party for our dearest friends in July, which will be fun, but I am not at all happy about it. So sad.
5. No spending. Period.
I do not need anymore clothes. The boys do not need anymore clothes. All we need are groceries. Amen. And I’d love to save to buy our curtains for the family room and breakfast room.
How did you do in June? About like me? What are your plans for July?
