I decided to start something new – sharing my monthly goals. I’m a list maker and love the feeling of accomplishment when I can cross something off of it.
Happy Halloween! One of my favorite days of the year.
I’m ready to set some new goals for November, but first let’s recap my October goals:
Hit 10k steps on my non-running days – FAIL
At least one day a week I didn’t hit my goal, because I’m just tired. But I made up for it the rest of the week by hitting 15k most days.
Read at least one Stephen King book – Sorta DONE
I’m still working on it. I have had no time to read for the past week, so it’s hard to finish reading such a huge book when you don’t have the time. But I do really like it!
Start preparing for Christmas – gift lists and finding deals – DONE
I finished all of Sunnie’s Christmas shopping last week. Now I’m going to focus on other family gifts.
Continue to create new content for blog – DONE (ongoing)
I managed a few new posts and will hopefully keep it going in the future.
Home Sweet Home
Paint the kitchen – FAIL
Hubby and I got a little burnt out after painting the outside of the house and the living room. We just got the new kitchen floor yesterday, so we’re more motivated to get the room painted now.
Find new curtains and rugs for the kitchen – DONE
I’m so excited for my kitchen makeover. Found rugs and curtains on Amazon.
Pack away Sunnie’s summer clothes to make room for winter stuff – FAIL
I honestly forgot all about this, and her dresser drawers are a disaster. I need to carry this goal into November.
Take Sunnie to a pumpkin patch – FAIL
Gotta be honest, I’m not a fan of pumpkin patches. We’ve taken Sunnie every year, but $30-40 for a pumpkin and to go on a hay ride isn’t where I want to spend my money. We decided to skip it this year – so it’s actually a WIN for my bank account.
Go see IT movie with my hubby – DONE
Watch Hocus Pocus with Sunnie – DONE
She loved it, and has watched it a few more times since.
Plan hubby’s 40th birthday party – DONE
Party was a success and hubby had fun!
Start doing arm exercises (more consistently)
Finish Christmas shopping for family
Plan a lunch date with my best friend
Home Sweet Home
Paint the kitchen
Pack away Sunnie’s summer clothes to make room for winter stuff
Hang up Christmas lights/decorate for Christmas
Start prepping for Thanksgiving dinner
Start coming up with ideas for Anna the Elf’s return (Elf on the Shelf)
Enjoy the holidays (don’t let it stress me out)
What are some things on your to-do list for November?
