Five on Friday - July Goals

Today I’m recapping my June goals and listing my July goals.  As always, I’m using a Y for YES and N for NO to indicate whether or not I accomplished my goals. 



June Goals

Relationships/Connect/Be the Light

Y  Go out to dinner with girlfriends. – First one in 15 months and it was wonderful!

Y  Send my nephew some happy mail for his birthday.

N  Have a play date with friends. – We were going to try to plan something at the end of the month, and then Jacob and Brian were sick for nearly two weeks.

N  Go on a date night with B. – Same, sickness prevented this, too.

N  Start attending church in person again!!!! – Aaaaand again, sickness. 

                                                                                     

Personal/Health/Wellness/Fitness/Beauty

Y  Meditate, quiet time, and affirmations every day.

Y  Drink 64 oz. most days. 

Y  Close all rings on my Apple Watch at least 22 days. – I closed them 23 times.

Y  Get my hair done.

Y  Visit the dentist for semi-annual cleaning.

Y  Visit with therapist via Zoom.

Y  Read Resisting Happiness.

Y  Read 3 fiction books.


Family/Fun

Y  Take Olivia for her semi-annual ENT appointment.

Y  Take Olivia to get her hard cast.

Y  BEACH TRIP!!!!  Try to make it as fun for Olivia as possible despite her broken elbow.

Y  Let the kids attend science camp at school!

Y  Take both kids to dentist for semi-annual cleaning.

Y  Take Olivia to her annual well-visit with the pediatrician.

Y  Celebrate Father’s Day.

Y  Read a book out loud with both kids. – We read Little House in the Big Woods… one of my all-time faves when I was little, but the kids were less than thrilled with it. 

Y  Do lots of fun things and make summer special despite Olivia’s broken elbow. – We did all kinds of fun stuff on our beach trip, let the kids go to camp, took walks around the neighborhood, and played lots of games.  I’d wanted to do some extra special stuff the last week of June, but Jacob was sick for several days and then B got it, too, so we had to stay home so as to not spread germs.  :o(

Y  Watch Lego Masters, America’s Got Talent, and Breaking Bobby Bones as a family.

Y  Try on all kids’ clothes and donate stuff that no longer fits.

Y  Start ordering new uniforms for upcoming school year. – I ordered all of the kids’ uniform shirts, skirts, and jumpers from the uniform company, and I ordered all of Jacob’s navy shorts and pants plus Olivia’s cartwheel shorts from Old Navy, + new socks, undies, and hairbows from Target.  Oh, and we order all of their school supplies from a place that delivers them straight to the school, so we don’t ever have to worry about buying those!  That means both of them are nearly done… all they need are new shoes!  I am WAY ahead of the game!

Y  Start working on summer homework.

Y  Record a video every single day of the month and upload to my One Second a Day app.

 

Home/Organization/Planning

N  List more summer clothes on Poshmark.

N  Schedule someone to install laundry room countertop.

N  Complete 1 thing on Master To-Do list.

 

Blog/Social Media

Y  Post at least 3 times per week.
