Ooooh, it’s my favorite month. I love all things Autum and all things Halloween, and those two love-affairs collide so perfectly this month. I’m pretty stoked just thinking about it. What I’m not stoked about, is my progress on September’s goals… Yowza. I’m going to do better in October.
→ Unpack at least 3 boxes a week. FAIL. I still have not unpacked anything really… lol
→ Start working on my ISM training. FAIL.
→ Start working on my A+ Certification. FAIL.
→ Finish reading at least one book. FAIL.
→ Finish editing old posts on this blog to fit the new site. FAIL.
→ Post at least one post in the New Blogger Series. FAIL.
Post some of my photography. SUCCESS! Finally something…
Get my dog and I into a better routine. SUCCESS! We’re doing okay there.
Start cooking meals again. SUCCESS–ish. I did cook well for a bit, then I didn’t…
→ Try my hand at meal planning and preparing for the week ahead of time. FAIL.
Try at least one new recipe. SUCCESS! I made potato hash and roasted veggies.
Find one of those DIY dog wash places and give Bub a bath. SUCCESS! He had one bath out, and one bath in. He hated both.
Again, in the light of all of these failures, I feel the need to mention a few other things that ended up taking up my time instead…
→ I migrated Chaotic Goddess Swaps from blogger to WordPress and re-did it’s whole design.
→ I redid all of the upcoming swaps buttons for Chaotic Goddess Swaps.
→ I created and did all the design for our (collab blog with Kenzie, Beth, and I) upcoming blog Page à Vu.
→ Enjoyed a great weekend at ComicCon with my friends and Bub experienced his first puppysitter.
→ Had a girls night with my fabulous birches.
→ Made the big decision to start moving on from this love life drama I’m experiencing.
→ I booked my Saturday Spotlight features out WAY into the future with fabulous bloggers.
→ I created a Halloween printable, and multiple versions of said printable, for my mailing list. Sign up now and you’ll get it tomorrow!
Honestly, I still feel like I was so busy I don’t even know where I had time to breathe… So I can’t focus on the failures. I just need to focus on the wins and keep moving forward into the month of October with a little more dedication to a few of these goals.
→ Unpack at least 3 boxes a week. (REALLY-I need some of that stuff, especially kitchen and art stuffs.)
→ Start working on my ISM training. This one depends on when work schedules me to study for a week.
→ Start working on my A+ Certification. This is SO important.
→ Finish reading at least one book. I seriously love The Diviners, which I’m working on, so I need to finish!
→ Finish editing old posts on this blog to fit the new site.
→ Finish editing old posts on Chaotic Goddess Swaps to fit the new site.
→ Post at least one post in the New Blogger Series.
→ Try my hand at meal planning and preparing for the week ahead of time.
→ Eat a more plant-based diet… Meats have been making me kind of queasy lately.
→ Try and save some money-I’m down to like $400 total in savings-but I pay two mortgages this month.
→ Sell some ad spots and try and book out my holiday.
→ Get my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways organized and ready to go.
→ Start doing some some yoga at home.
