May goals

5 May 2014

I’m usually good about posting my monthly goals on the first of the month, but so far, May has thrown me for a loop! I had my post pretty well written but not quite ready on April 30th; I left it in draft thinking I’d do a last check and hit publish the next day. Instead I was up most of the night with what felt like food poisoning, stayed home from work and slept for most of Thursday, then hesitatingly got on a plane (RDU –> PHL –> PVD) Thursday night to fly home for an award ceremony for my dad. I was within ten minutes of Providence on my second leg before we were turned around due to fog, in the Philly airport until 2am, slept in a hotel for two hours, then caught a train to southeastern Connecticut at 5:15am, arriving at 9. Whew!! At least I could sleep on the train :)

Let’s hope the rest of May goes a bit more smoothly! I did so-so on my April goals, but that didn’t stop me from being ambitious with my May ones…

To recap, my April goals:
Set an appointment with an allergist
Break out calligraphy supplies and do something with them
Pick strawberries
Make final reservations for our California trip
Purchase a spring/fall jacket
Send out invitations for two showers (invitation number one has been printed and cut – waiting on addresses before I send!)
Fulfill one of our Easter traditions – paying for the car behind us in a drive-through line! (Yikes – we forgot!! Going to find another opportunity soon.)

May goals:
– Install a rain barrel
– Take photos of our house and post a tour on the anniversary of our closing
– Set an appointment with an allergist
– Address shower invitations with newish nib skills
– Hang art in the kitchen

If you’ve posted your monthly goals, I’d love to take a peek!

  1. I love reading your goals because I feel like we’re always on similar thought paths. :) I can’t wait to see your precious home! I loved catching little glimpses in the behind the scenes SW shoot photos! XO

  2. Yay for a house tour! Here are my goals – April was not as accomplished as I had hoped either ;)

  3. Goodness, you definitely had your fair share of traveling (mis)adventures! April seemed to fly by, and I’m hoping to savor May a bit more… we’ll see if that actually happens! I also can’t wait to see more peeks into your home.

  4. I can’t believe it’s May either! I’m really late to post, but posted earlier.

    I just found your blog from a link on Emily Ley’s blog. I never really set goals and I don’t feel like I accomplish much. I MUST start doing this. I don’t think I will be brave enough to publish them, but at least I’ll be one step closer! Doing calligraphy will be on the top of my list! I have a little job to do for my church, but I need, or should I say want, new supplies, so I have been procrastinating. I am now going to sit down and check out the rest of your blog!!!!!

    I hope you’re feeling better!
