Welp, my May goals were a bit difficult. But it’s cool. It was another enjoyable month for us. And life is not about making and meeting goals. Thank goodness. Here’s an update on my May and June goals:
+ Finish The Goldfinch. Going strong, but not yet done! It’s not feel-good-fiction by any means, but I’m really enjoying it. It’s one of the longer books I’ve read lately, but the story is such that it’s easy to keep plugging along.
+ Get down to a total of 30 pounds lost since January. Nope. Not even close. It’s been much harder lately, and I’ve admittedly not been trying as hard. We just bought a quart of (surprisingly expensive) black raspberry chip ice cream from Graeter’s, if that tells you anything.
Get rid of some more clothes. Yes! I sent a large bag of clothes and accessories off to Threadflip. They aren’t yet listed, but I’m excited to see what Threadflip accepts.
Go on a few fun, unique dates with Dan. Also a yes! We’ve been having a lot of fun. This month we went to a baseball game, started once-a-week ballroom dance lessons, went garage sale-ing, and ate at Food Truck Friday. Yay, summer!
For June, I’m going to keep it simple and doable:
+ Take another load of stuff to Goodwill: We do this on a regular basis. If it’s not being used, it goes. Especially if it’s cheap. We’re both happier if our home has some “white space.”
+ Cook more meals for Dan: He’s starting another rotation of really long hours. He’s the primary cook in our home, but it gets difficult when he’s not getting home until after 7p. I don’t want him to be the primary cook for the rest of our lives, so I need to get my butt in gear. I think we’ll start a service like Blue Apron or Plated a few times this month.
+ Use my time well: It’s hard for me to fill my day with productive activities when Dan works really long hours. I was pretty successful the last month he had this schedule, and I’m going to try hard again. Work, exercise, errands, home projects, time with friends. Go!
