I had originally planned to post this tomorrow, but then I remembered Trae is getting his first set of shots tomorrow, and if he is anywhere near as grumpy as he was today, I am going to be pulling my hair out. He has been so weird today. Screaming, screaming, screaming. Definitely not the baby I am used to.
Well, a month ago tomorrow I wrote about my goals for the next six months. Now that there are only five of those months left, I thought I would take another look at them and see how I have done.
Goal 1: Take more pictures. If you count my iphone as a means of picture taking, then sure, I have. When it comes to the camera, not so much. Still slacking there, unfortunately. I just can't remember to take it anyplace with me, and my phone is just always so conveniently there.
Goal 2: Develop a better schedule. Check. I feel like I really have gotten on a nice schedule. Trae goes to bed at 7:30. I have some time to myself, then go to bed at 10:30. The hard part is setting up a schedule for getting up in the morning. I could lay in bed for hours. I try to get Trae and I both up and dressed by 10ish, though.
Goal 3: Become a better blogger. I'm not sure if my content is more interesting, but I sure have been consistent! Actually, I am to the point that I really don't care if what I write about is interesting. I am getting back into the swing of writing stuff, and it is a nice outlet.
Goal 4: Lose at least 30 pounds. Yup. It's all gone. Wait, no it isn't... But, 10 pounds of it is! Holla! You guys, I have been consistently working out, and as much as I curse every minute of it, I feel a little proud for that accomplishment.
Goal 5: Become an expert couponer. I am getting there! Last trip to the grocery store, I saved over $40. I am going again tomorrow, and I am excited to see how much I can save. It really is a fun little game, and who doesn't like having extra money?
Goal 6: Save money. Yeahhhh, not so much. I need to work on this one. I am constantly spending money when I am out. I don't even spend money on stuff that lasts. I think that is the most frustrating part of it. I buy coffee and Diet Dr. Pepper like no one's business. It really is a waste of money.
Goal 7: Be a better wife. I think this is an on-going process, and I can definitely say that I didn't master this one in the last month. I will check the box by "needs improvement."
Goal 8: Go to at least one concert of a band I enjoy. Nope. Still holding out for The Killers, but I would settle for Mumford and Sons or Weezer.
Alright, guys, wish me luck tomorrow. I don't want to see my little baby get stuck :(
