2016 Monthly Goals: July

16goals

School is finally out and we are basking in the glory of sunshine and summer time. We’ve been spending a lot of time at the pool and we had our beach vacation in June so I may have been a tad unrealistic with my June goals. Ha! 

June Goals:

1. Finish all little projects. This one kind of got halfway done then I ran out of time and steam. And the pool was much more inviting than working. Oops.

2. Do a huge declutter/donation. I did do a pretty big donation in June. But I still have a lot more that needs to be decluttered and donated. It’s a work in progress but every little bit helps!

3. Finish the master bedroom/bathroom. Nope. Not even close. It looks exactly the same as it did when I wrote out my June goals. I just ran out of time. And nobody sees the bedroom and bathroom except for us so it’s always last on my list.

4. Finish the living room redo. Almost done. I need to do the gallery wall above the couch and buy some new cushion covers for the throw pillows but other than that, it’s done.

5. Relax and Enjoy summer break. Doing it and continuing to do it. I love summer. 

July Goals:

1. Finish the gallery wall in the living room. The space just looks totally unfinished with the wall blank so I need to work on that. And I want to spend no money if possible so I’ll be pulling things from around the house to use.

2. Get all paperwork done for Ty and Maia’s new schools. With school transfers come paperwork. Lots of paperwork. I’m in the middle of working on Ty’s NCHSAA waiver so he can play football for his new school next year. Maia still has to pick her 6th grade classes and turn that in. I need to secure spots on the buses for both schools. I have about 15 checks to write. And both Ty and Maia need physicals and forms signed. 

3. Go through the kids closets. I need to do another big purge. They have all grown so much in the last few months and I need to weed out the old clothes. Plus Maia and Ty will be wearing uniforms next year so I really want to cut down on the amount of clothes they have. They don’t need 3 weeks worth of outfits when they wear uniforms 5 days a week. I like this. 

4. Create a new master meal list. Next school year is going to busy. Really busy. 2 kids in charter schools that require me to transport them, plus multiple sports being played, and I’m going to need to step up my meal planning game so we don’t either starve or resort to fast food every night. 

5. Do some fun stuff with the kids. We go to the pool almost every day and play in the hot tub almost every night but I want to do some more stuff. I want to take them to the movies a couple of times, go get sno-balls from our favorite Pelicans Sno-Balls, do another zoo trip, and a few other fun things that don’t cost a ton of money.

We’ll see how much I accomplish in July. Wish me luck. Ha!
