Just like that, May is over.
And what a month May was! It was our first month of no school. That alone seems crazy. Have we really been out of school for a month already?! We went to a NASCAR race, ran a half marathon and spent a weekend out-of-town. May felt a bit like a whirlwind to say the least. With the busyness the past month brough,t it didn’t leave much time for working on the goals I set. Let’s see how thing went anyways.
*Keep posting 4-5 days a week.
*Work on my Pinterest strategy and growing followers to 1,000. (Take two)
*Reformat 50 blog posts since my WordPress transition.
I was WAY to ambitious on that reformat goal. I managed to do about 25 and sure there were days *cough* weeks *cough* that I didn’t do any at all. But hey, its pretty much summer. I’ll get them all done in… about 2 years.
When I wrote this I had 1,050 followers on Pinterest. So unless I have a massive un-following I seriously kicked that goals butt buy gaining 103 followers this month.
*Go to a car show.
*Family milk shake or donut date
*Do something spontaneous?!
Done, done and done. I say deciding to go to a baseball games an hour before it starts and running a half marathon with little to no training are spontaneous enough!
*Complete half marathon #5
*4-5 workouts a week.
*Get diet in strict check this month.
The race is over. My workouts have been going great, but I wouldn’t call my diet strict. Better, but not strict.
*”Summer” morning devotions with girls.
And now is when you hear the massive explosion of failure go off. Mornings have been totally unorganized around here. I have to get a grip on this one folks.
* Start lesson planning for 2016/2017
* Shop for some used curriculum that I need
Lesson plans are underway, more on that later this week. I also have almost everything I need for school next year. I have about 4 more books I need to gather and I am praying I can find some of those used too.
*Work on our spring bucket list
*Get out of town
*Two Girls Nights
I’m a bit shocked that all of these happened, but they did! Our spring bucket list has 4 things left on it and hopefully we’ll cross a couple more of those off this week. I really think we could actually finish the whole list by the weekend with a little bit of luck.
All in all May went a lot better than I expected it to. I really missed the mark in some areas but did pretty well in others. Now to set some new goals for the month of June. It took every thing I had to not just stop with go to the pool.
