I have gotten into the habit of checking on my monthly progress toward accomplishing my goals for the year. But you knew that, no?
That said, I just realized that the month of June completely slipped in and out of my radar! WHOOPSIE.
But no one seemed to mind... so let's check out July, shall we? The truth is, I didn't record ANYTHING this month so I am working on memory here...
Family Read Aloud(s)-one is the goal:
Bridge to Teribithia
The Last Battle
House Project(s) of the Month-one is the goal:
Put a new ceiling in the mudroom (and tore down the nasty one)
Painted the bathroom (!!!)
Painted a sign for the mudroom
Worked on the Neverending Treehouse
Letter-writing: SIX. Sadly, I only sent ONE to Opa. :-(
Bought a tractor for Matt using CASH. (check! That was a one time, 2012 goal!)
Incidentally, we also bought a woodsplitter using CASH- a very necessary purchase!)
These two things led to a lesser amount toward overpayment on principle of the house and savings:
Surplus toward Mortgage: overpayed $250.00. Every extra dollar counts!
Money toward savings: none
Exercise, Drinking 60 ounces of water daily and reading were not recorded at all but if I had to venture a guess, I would say NILCH. Last month I went into a funk since 5 solid months of hard work on the dieting/exercise regime did NOTHING for my weight or waistline. It was discouraging enough to make me quit...but I will try and get back on the bandwagon (I don't know what FOR, though) this month.
Christmas Gifts Made: again, total fail. Last month was totally depressing so who wants to make Christmas gifts when they are depressed? Not I. I would much rather sulk. But I really need to get cracking~ I am beyond BEHIND in this.
Here is hoping August is a better month for me!
