B+ Goals // June 2016
Wow! We’re half way through the year, and I truly cannot believe it. I feel like everyone says that. But for me, it’s significant because I usually find that time moves so very slow. Now, though, for whatever reason, life feels like it’s a going warp speed.
All the rain we’ve had in the Northern Virginia area (we’re talking 20+ days of rain…in a row) almost derailed one of my goals. But, fortunately, the sun came out, and I pulled it together (with help, of course).
Be sure to check out Elizabeth’s blog and her B+ Goals. And if you participated, leave me a comment and let me know!
+Plant garden: COMPLETE
Dan built me one bed last year, and our tomatoes went so crazy, we decided I needed another bed. This year, Dan built me second bed, so I can have separate beds for my tomatoes and herbs. My mother-in-law helped me plant the tomatoes, and over the weekend, Dan finished the herb bed, and I got the herbs planted (With help from Michael, who kept burying the plants…). I planted Basil, Cilantro, Thyme, Rosemary, Peppermint, and Oregano.
+Hang canvas prints: COMPLETE
We ordered six canvas from Easy Canvas Prints, and I’m super happy with how they turned out. I provided creative direction, and Dan hung them. #teamwork
+Keep my van clean: COMPLETE
Yes. I managed to keep the inside of the van clean. I keep all my things in various bags, so that made it easier to haul my stuff in and out (rather than leave them in the van). I also enforced the rule of making my kids remove their junk. They hate that. But if I don’t make them remove their stuff, it piles up. Also, we keep plastic grocery bags in the garage, so every couple of days, after I pull into the garage, I get a garbage bag and make the kids help me clean out the van. Now, I really need to get the outside cleaned!
+Try, try again for the podcast listener survey: IN PROGRESS
You all. I was trying to avoid this. Again. But! I did it! Turns out, all you wise people who suggested Google Forms were so totally right. It’s super easy. I made it, and I asked my creative colleagues to take a look at it before I send it out. I’ll have it out the door by the end of the week!
+Schedule another interview for my book: IN PROGRESS
I sent out three requests, and I’m waiting to hear back to schedule. I consider this a win because I did my part.
Here’s what I want to do in June:
+Get rid of outgrown baby stuff.
I do a pretty good job at this, but Thomas grows out of clothes and toys so fast, that I feel like I’m always keeping up with this. I weaned him, so I’m so happy to jettison bottles!
+Go through my closet. Again.
Another thing I’m always doing. Since I no longer need to wear only nursing-friendly clothes, a WHOLE NEW WORLD is open to me. Hooray!
+Get in door plants.
I’ve always wanted to have in door plants, but I wasn’t sure which ones or where to put them. Can’t you just see Thomas crawling over to a plant and dumping it all over the floor? I have one hanging plant on a hanging macrame cord that I like, so I’m looking to maybe do a few more like that.
+Get those interviews scheduled for my book.
I reached out to three people last month, and I haven’t heard back. I need to circle back and see if I can schedule those this month.
+Transcribe my last interview.
The most tedious yet useful tasks.
Okay! What are you working on in June?
