Rememberance and Goals

I wanted to make a post today...but I wanted to be sure that I was respectful of today's events. I'm not going to talk a lot about it because I just don't really know what to say. What I do have to say is that everybody who was involved with this day is in my thoughts. And to our military...thank you for your sacrifices. Make sure you take a moment to think about what today means. As a country, as a citizen, and as individuals.



So now that I've gotten that taken care of I think I need to do a post about my September goals. I know that we're almost to the middle of the month but oh well!

Let's recap what the goals were for August
  • Understand my job a little better - Success! I get it alot more now than I did exactly a month ago on this day.
  • Get our clothes organized - Half a success. I got most of Teagan's clothes off my bed and into her drawers. Now mine are just everywhere. I even got her to try stuff on to see what I needed to buy for fall!
  • Blog four days a week - Yeah, I'm not so sure. I've been posting more than I was but I don't know if it's been 4 days a week or not. I've been happy with the amount I'm doing and that's what matters.
  • Clean out my car and keep it that way - Hahahaha that's funny. No, my car is not clean. I don't think I really care anymore. I hate my car. That's all I'm gonna post about this.
  • Save $10 from each of my paychecks in August. - I didn't do so hot on that one. I had some biggies pop up though.
  • Be more patient with my daughter - I think I did pretty well here. So I consider this a partial success!
So August was ok. I need to define these goals more. They're more abstract then concrete.
I need concrete goals so I know exactly what I need to do.

  • Be active at least 3 days a week. That's not even half of a week so I can do it.

  • Get my dr's appointments that I need scheduled. There are about 2 or 3 of them I just keep putting off. I hate going to the doctor.

  • Save $10 from every check.

  • Finish one book and start at least one more.

  • Keep up on my homework.

  • Start getting stuff together for Teagan's Halloween costume.
I have no idea why all of a sudden blogger wouldn't let me format these bulletins like the ones above. Grrr...

Feel like you need monthly goals?

keeping my car clean is always one of those goals i put on my list and it always ends up being the one i suddenly "don't have time for" :)

my car is always hilariously filled with junk, I swear I don't even know where it all comes from! There's random stuff all over the back seats all of the time! Drives me nuts.

Good luck with your September goals, girl :)
