July Goals - Final Update

Things have been totally crazy!!!  I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to put up blog posts about all the amazing stuff going on.  I still have to post about the great meetup with Marcia and her husband in NYC.  We had such a fabulous time and she truly is a beautiful and amazing person!  This will all come soon.  I even have pictures of the fun we had!
Family
  1. Date nights with DH 4 times (currently scheduled on 7/6, 7/14 and 7/28)
  2. Ensure the boys are scheduled for preschool starting the Tuesday after Labor Day (BTW, this is September 5)
  3. Potty training both boys - now we just need to get them moved over to using the real potty.  They've been using potty chairs, so we can see what they are going.  They are currently only wearing pull-ups at bedtime and naptime is in underwear!  Liam still doesn't seem to make it to the potty to poo, though.  He really wants to. 
  4. Make sure Phoebe is doing her summer reading and practicing math skills - Summer reading done and all papers written out.  She just has more math practice to do in August.  It might seem excessive, but she's going into Pre-Algebra in 6th grade, so we just want to keep her sharp with her math skills before she hits the big leagues this year. 

Work

  1. Write and deliver mid-year reviews
  2. Hire two new developers - still working on.  No internal postings yet.
  3. Document new development guidelines - didn't get to this
  4. Added - Post for Group Manager position at work (which is a promotion for me) - yup!  Got the job.  Can't announce it yet as they are working out some logistics if anyone from my current team will go with me.
School

  1. Ensure finances are in order to pay for school in August 2012 - Making follow up phone calls to Bursar Office and Financial Aid
