So, May was busy. With family visiting towards the end of the month, it was quite the race to get the work finished on our house before they arrived. Shockingly, it got done! Our house is looking awesome, family came, lots of events and activities were undertaken and then we got a week of recovery from all the people-ing 😀 Overall, a busy and enjoyable month.
It's goal time once again. April was a whirlwind we didn't fully expect and actually I have a week during this month when my family will be visiting so I technically have to get all these done in just 3 weeks. *cracks knuckles* Let's do this!
I'm not really sure what happened to March. It just flew by with barely a nod and wave, if you please! That's not too awful, because during that month, I levelled up another year and I am always fine to ignore that milestone occurring!
Okay, so I didn't anticipate how bad my SAD syndrome would be. But apparently, February came with a big ol' spike of it and no I did not use my Light Box because I can be stupid at times. No that the storms have passed, I am going out daily again and I have put my Light Box on the table to make sure I actually use it.
So, *tired laugh* January was a bust! If you caught my last post, you'll know 10 days into January things got... rough and stayed that way until about yesterday. I'll admit this has left me deflated and flagging (emotionally, mentally and physically). But hey-ho, we press on regardless with the hope that February will be better!
I appreciate by the time this post goes up we will be in the 2nd week of January. But damn, do I like consistency and it would have annoyed me if I didn't have January Goals listed. So I wanted to get my January goals up, look over my December goals and charge ahead strong this year.
It's time for the last goals of the year! November was more of a success than I expected, especially since I got ill again for over a week, my cat's been ill and needed a lot of care and then got a mass of orders that just kept me busy. But having the structured system has definitely helped keep me on track.
It's check in time! If you're new to this blog, the First Friday of every month is my Monthly Goals blog post, where I go through last months goals and mark up whether I completed them or not and then list the new goals. October was the month I implemented, with gusto, my New System, and so far it's been a screaming success as you will see by my goals! (who would have thought?!)
September was a really tough month, busy but also with some family stress, a continuing bout of SAD Syndrome and one of my beloved cats got very sick. He was at the vets a lot, had a number of examinations, tests and procedures, lost a lot of weight and had to stay over. We did get to bring him home and have been trying to get him eating, he’s still not out of the woods yet but we are hopeful at this time. But it’s been emotionally draining.
I had planned to keep September's goals nice and simple, maybe sticking with just 5. Well, that lasted all of 30 seconds into writing this blog post. So, despite September usually being the start of my business rush as people start buying for the holidays (and the fact that August, usually a quiet month, was actually crazy busy) I have added more goals than I planned to. Oh well, I do like a challenge 😀
