May Goals Recap

Evening friends!

Who else is happy we’ve made it through the mid-week point?! I’m not going to lie, it is pretty hard to be cooped up at work all day when the weather is warm and the sun is shining! I think it’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so maybe that will make work a bit more bearable.

Since we are already four days into June (how?!), I figured I would recap how I did with my May goals (hint: not well).

Get more sleep/wake up earlier in the morning.

Nope, I didn’t do this even a little bit! I mentioned yesterday that I am working in a different location (farther from my house) within the same company, so that is forcing me to get up a little earlier than normal. I just hate feeling rushed in the morning, and I wish it would be easier to get my butt in gear.

Unfortunately, we can’t all sleep the day away like Stewie!

As far as getting more sleep… I think I’d be better off just giving up on this! Why is it so hard for me to get to bed at a decent hour?

Cut back on sugar/sweets.


Although I don’t think I really “cut back” at all in the month of May, I can’t really recall going super overboard either. So I guess I sort of half-accomplished this, right?

Accomplish one organizational task around the house.

Ughhh… WHY do I feel like I never get anything done?! When I set this goal, the plan was to clean/organize either our basement or the garage. Well, neither of these things happened. Whenever I have a big task to do, I feel like I need to dedicate an entire, uninterrupted day to it. Of course, I didn’t have any of those in May.

I did do one miniscule thing to move in the right direction—I broke down our ginormous “collection” of boxes that was building in our garage. We have a habit of piling up every box that comes into our house without breaking them down. Why? Pure laziness. Now that I’ve got that situation under control, I’m going to make a serious effort not to let boxes pile up anymore.

As far as goals for the month of June, I’m actually not sure what I want to accomplish. Of course the usual list of to-dos around the house is weighing on me; I’m hoping to possibly get out kitchen painted if I get a free weekend.

Otherwise, I’m going to try to relax (not my strong suit) and enjoy the first month of summer. It is my favorite season and it always passes too quickly; I’ve got all winter to worry about our disorganized basement.

Do you have a strategy for managing household tasks? I need help, people.

Who else lives for summer? I could easily move to sunny California and I don’t think I would ever miss the seasons!

    I’m living and breathing for the summer right now. One more week! As for sleep in the month of May, I don’t even remember a single good night of it. This wedding business is no joke!

    I ALWAYS feel like if I plan to clean anything, I will never do it. I get more done when I do not make “cleaning” goals than when I do, so maybe you should go the route of just taking it down whenever you have time! You switched companies and have to deal with schedule changes, so don’t be so hard on yourself :)
