May Goals Recap

To recap where I ended up with my May goals....


  1. One date night per week with DH  - You bet!
  2. Find a YMCA class to do with Phoebe - Took a yoga class on June 2nd (tonight!).  Believe we will do this every Monday.  Good class!
  3. Plan the boys' birthday part - May 29th they will be 5! -  Done.  Just family on their birthday.  Next year will be a big Kindergarten class mate party!
  4. Try to be more patient with the kids, especially Phoebe (love her - teenagers are trying) - Work in progress some days are better than others. I think I'm getting my patience back after being stressed with school.
  1. Mulch front planting beds
  2. Replace burning bush that died
  3. Plant vegetables in garden - tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, peas, radishes, what else do we want?
  1. Submit for approval for two job requisitions - Full time employee staffing done for now.  Moving on to needing project pool contractors.
  2. Develop strategy/vision for team this year. - Still working on this.  There's a lot I don't know about the IT way of doing things at our company that is different from the business.  This will become a lot clearer this month.
  1. Finish 1 remaining paper for Systems Thinking
  2. Walk at graduation May 17th - relax!!!
Health and Fitness
  1. Cardio 4-5x per week - Only the last week of May did I reach this goal.  I made baby steps throughout the month to settle on cardio in the morning.
  2. Try 4 new healthy recipes this month (one per week) - I didn't really end up tracking this.  I made a bunch of new salad dressings.
  3. Menu plans for week - getting better at this.
Personal - Obviously I need a lot of work in this section!
  1. Post on blog daily
  2. Catch up on reading other blogs
  3. Have iPad screen fixed
  4. Schedule Tom and I for eye doctor appointment
  5. Schedule Tom and I to go to Costa Rica
  6. Decide other vacation plans
Financial - Will be working more in this area in June as well.
  1. Update the new annual budget file
  2. Take some $ out of reserve to pay down one bill

That sounds like an unbelievably productive month! I find it so hard to get all of the little stuff done.

Happy birthday to the boys! I can't believe they are 5 already.
Great month, Heather. And don't gloss over GRADUATION!!!!!!

I did our budgets last night. Funny how it always settles me knowing exactly what's what :)
