Complete and Submit Social Security PaperworkSeriously.. I need a kick in the pants. If I don't take care of my Social Security papers this month, then I'll... forfeit my personal spending money for July! I definitely don't want to do that. I've got to just suck it up and get it done.
Stick to the Budget
June is Josh's birthday month, which means I want to spend a lot of money spoiling him. :P I'd like to avoid going too crazy.. especially since we fell off the budget wagon last month a little bit. This doesn't mean we can't spend any extra money, I'd just like to know ahead of time where we're going to spend it.. and then stick to that plan.
Eat at Least 4 Salads Each WeekThis was going to be "Eat one salad every day" but that hasn't quite happened.. so I'm going to cheat and change it to 4/week! I get tired of eating the same kinds of salads all the time, so this is mostly a scheme to learn new combinations and "trick" myself into liking salads again ;)
Read at Least 3 Books
(Again). I really enjoyed reading more last month, and I found that reading multiple books at once helped me not get too sucked into any of them - I was able to enjoy each of them but still set them down when I needed to take care of my responsibilities in the real world. So I'm going to continue the Anne of Green Gables series, keep working through Women's Wisdom, and of course whatever book my book club decides on. I think it'll be a C.S. Lewis classic or two - I'm excited! I also plan to make a list of books I'd like to read over the summer, so you can expect more in the coming months.
(Technically, this item is completed now that we're home from Texas, but it has been one of the goals I've been working on all month!) This included emotional health as well as physical health - traveling can be stressful for me, so I wanted to prepare myself in the weeks leading up to our trip.
Create a Summer Bucket List...
...and start crossing items off that list! I've got some ideas for this already. It should be really fun! I'll share the list with you all by the end of this week, hopefully.
Well'p, there it is. Sharing my monthly resolutions 18 days into the month... shameful! Better late than never though, right? How are your resolutions going? Did anyone else get a late start like I did?
