I am surely but slowly finishing up my 30 items, and the next one on the list is my goals for the next month. The main goal I have is to do what I always say I want to do. Simple, huh.
I really want to get in a better routine of working out because I have been so tired lately. One of the best ways for me to feel energized is to be active. Unfortunately between the weather and my extreme fatigue these past few weeks, it has been difficult.
I also want to get back in the habit of meal planning. I love to cook but lately I just haven't been feeling it. Food has lost its appeal and I aim to change that. My husband has been very good about this, not complaining while he makes his ramen for the third time in a week, but I know that we would both prefer to get back to eating regular meals.
Another goal is to move forward with a several business ideas that I have. First, Rob and I are trying to work out the details of a business with our good friends, Ellen and Jorge. I have a lot of faith in this and am excited to see where it could go. I also have dreams of an Etsy shop and maybe some vendor booths at some of the fairs this summer. I've talked to my friend Kyle and my mother about joining forces but now I really need to work hard to make it happen.
And last but not least, I need to figure out what to do with my unfinished back yard. This definitely needs to happen by March so that we are prepared to act before Colorado's other hellacious weather setting kicks in: extreme heat (accompanied by unrelenting sun). Which I love, but not for doing yard work.
My back yard is small and shouldn't be this big of a problem, but it is. No sprinklers and no desire to put them in when I am 87.9% sod would be a bad idea with the dogs anyway. About 50% of the yard is already rock, and I would like to avoid making it 100% rock. So what do we do? Our dogs can be a little... wild, so we have our grass and garden in the front. I see a lot of landscaping stalking in my future. :)
The good news is that today I am feeling inspired for the first time in a while. Maybe it is the promise of clear skies and highs in the 50s, or maybe it's me finally getting adjusted to some of the changes in my life, but either way, I am feeling pretty confident about acheiving these goals.
