Summer Blogging Challenge - Day 5 - Goals


Day 5: Short-term goals this month

Ohhh Goals! Goals are so important... 
A goal is a desired result an animal, person or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve—a personal or organizational desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavor to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines. - Wikipedia
I have a few for this month....
  • Blog everyday for the SBC!
  • Create a creative post and include photos at least once a week
The first goal is just obvious... it's apart of the challenge. I will and have been scheduling these posts, so they are written a few days before, which is great for me. And I don't want to just blog I want to create, inspire and just write! I think subconsciously I've always wanted to write. I've been published many times (just featured in books) and have written for a few newspapers and magazines and it's always fun to see family and friends proud of you. SO... what was I saying? lol Oh yeah, so instead of just blogging, I want to add that personal touch at least once a week so that you can get a sneak peak into my life as well.
 
Apart from blogging....
  • Get ready for baby (Due in late August)
  • Plant a small garden with my girls
  • Read a book this summer
You can check out my Pregnancy Journal or my Pregnancy Vlogs to stay up-to-date with my 3rd pregnancy. yes, this is our third child, it's crazy to even think about it. Things are going good... have a doc appointment next week, so excited to get an update on my baby! Oh and about getting ready I've got a an excel sheet with our "Baby Check List." Does that sound crazy? Anyways, next thing to do is to finish cleaning, organizing and CLEANING the WHOLE HOUSE! Eeeek!


And I've been wanting and been putting off creating a garden. But I have some seeds that I want to plan in our front yard and with school now over, I may have a bit more time to do it with my two daughters (3 & 7).  
Do you have any gardening tips for us?

Then READING! I am so proud of my 7 year old. She just graduated to the next grade level, 2nd grade, and her teacher gave her the 3rd grade reading level reading book. She said she was the only one to get it! So I want to take that time for all of us to read as a family. We use to do it when she was younger, but M-F our days are just mushed together and had so much to do! This will also give the house some QUITE TIME!

So yeah.... WISH ME LUCK!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
