I didn’t make all my goals for the month. I don’t even have to look at them to know that. So, I’m just gonna check in and talk about what I did accomplish this month.
I wnt camping twice with the family. The prep sucks, and there were some not great moments…but that doesn’t matter. I had some absolutely wonderful time with my husband, my kids…even my daughter’s boyfriend came along and it was pretty nice to get to know him better and see how he fit in with the whole fam…and he really really did. 🙂
I have my house back in some kind of order. It’s certainly not perfect, and it’s not where I want it to be, but it’s closer. And after all of the hbby’s traveling, being sick while he was overseas for a month and just trying to get through each day, I was floudering and the house more than suffered because of it. And I have a very difficult time working – particularly writing – when everything is a mess around me. It’s like: surrounded by chaos=chaotic mind. But I have gotten things back on track, and I’ve been much more productive as a result. So yay!
I’ve written. Not every day as I want to, but more than I did last month or the month before. I’m making progress and that’s what matters – and I repeat that to myself on the regular.
I’ve successfully gotten things ready and packed for my family reunion this weekend, my time at Bron’s next week, and the overseas trip my daughter is taking for several weeks. Granted, the daughter is amazingly organized and did most of the prep herself, but there were still many things I (and/or hubby) had to do as well. Those are all done, and everyone is set. So that is a win, in my book.
So while I didn’t hit everything I wanted to this month, I managed to do a lot and to do more than i’ve been doing, which is a huge mental and emotional boost for me.
So, looking forward to August, my goals are
- All August blog posts.
- Write daily.
- Kick word count ass the week I’m at Bron’s house.
- Keep up on house and self-care stuff.
