The list grows

Let’s just go ahead and assume I’m never going to get around to doing whatever my weekly “goal” is the week I plan to do it.

Still haven’t found shelving/storage we like. We tried though, checked out a couple places. But, didn’t find anything… yet. Maybe we can get to Ikea this week sometime. The hunt continues!

I still haven’t pulled the weeds either.

I DID clean the kitchen really good yesterday. Smelled wonderful. Prepped dinner for tonight and have a vague plan of what we’ll be eating the rest of the week.

In addition to feeling accomplished about the kitchen (I think the full bath will be done tonight!) I made a few decisions regarding dance this week that I think are going to be really good. I’m excited to see how the next 6-10 months play out in this regard. Only time can tell!

Goal(s) for this week:
Pull weeds
Find media shelves
Scrub full bath from top to bottom

Insane heat = no progress

No pictures. No real progress.

I needed to pull weeds. I bought a pair of gardening gloves (which at $5 I think I’ll return and see if I can’t snag a pair at the $1 store!), but it was just too dang hot to do any sort of anything outside.

I did make a delicious taco/fajita meal for dinner yesterday that then became a burrito bowl mess for lunch today. Which, by the way, I ate 2 hours ago and am still FULL.

So, goal for this week is to find media shelves for our mess of a “second bedroom.” We’ve lived there a year and it’s still just all the crap I don’t have room for thrown in boxes piled in there. Eventually the goal is to make that room our media room (as well as my clothing and dance stuff). So, we need storage and a lamp. Maybe, if we can find shelves we both like, I can have that room completed by this time next week. That’d be amazing and would make me feel incredibly accomplished.

In the meantime, I should probably get around to pulling those weeds… As soon as it isn’t sweltering outside!

The World Cup is over, right? I dunno... I've been thinking about my own goals.

I’ve been formulating plans.

Debt reduction (eventual elimination!)
General life stuff

I need a new computer. Mine is fried. I’ll need a new car soon (or at the very least $$$ to fix it). I want to go back to school. I want to find a better balance between dance and other fitness activities I might want to pursue (as well as just general life stuff… like finally putting together my house – I’ve only lived there for a year!).

So, I’ve been formulating plans. Goals.

This weekend – Pride in your home weekend. Sure, most of you will celebrate 4th of July. I will be celebrating cleaning my house, organizing a few things, and making the front yard look beautiful (or at least, decent).

Maybe if I post a weekly goal here I can actually accomplish it.

Hopefully, I’ll be back on Tuesday with pictures and details on all the wonderful things I did to improve my home this weekend.
