August Monthly Goals

March Goals:

  • Lose 8 pounds I can't remember what I weighed then, so I'm not sure...
  • Drink 8 cups of water a day Not every day
  • Catch up on my pen pal replies Not even close
  • Unpack the office I did work on this, but I'm not finished yet
  • Hang up 3 more things in the house  I did one... Yay! : )
Yes, that's right... Those were my March goals. It's been that long since I did a monthly goals post. To be honest, I forgot all about them after my April hiatus... But thankfully the originator, Miss Angie over at My So-Called Chaos, has kept up with it and reminded me after posting her August Goals. So I'm picking it back up!

August Goals:
  • Lose 5 pounds
  • Finish unpacking the office
  • Catch up on my pen pal replies
  • Drink 8 cups of water every day
  • Write at least 1 chapter in my novel
  • Catch up on my 101 in 1001 posts

And I'll stick with those for now. Hopefully I'll do better this month than I did in March! ; ) Feel free to post your own goals and link up with Miss Angie. Each month you do, you'll be entered into a drawing she's having at the end of the year. : )

All By Myself

Okay, how many of you are busting out your best Celine Dion right now? I know I am! : )

I took that picture back in April when Matt was in Germany and missing both my birthday AND our anniversary... And while I'm not quite that sad, I am missing my hubby at the moment.

He left this past Monday for Mobile, AL. He'll be back Friday, but then he leaves next week for Nashville, TN. I'm going to drive up after work that Wednesday to stay with him a couple nights there... since he's flying out to Arizona the following week!

So that's almost an entire month without my hubby at home. : (  But at least I'll get to see him in between trips. And I'm excited about going to Nashville. I love going to all the shops downtown! : )  It's such a cool place.  I'm a little bummed that I won't get to go to Sweet CeCe's now though... Oh no, wait! I bet they have sorbet!!!! Yay, I hope they do! I love Sweet CeCe's. : )   *Sweet CeCe's is a frozen yogurt shop, in case you didn't know that. ; )

Speaking of, my last round of tests all came back negative, so my doctor is finally sending me to a gastroenterologist so I can have the lactose intolerance test done. I'm still pretty sure that's what it is though... I've been really avoiding things with lactose in them, and I can definitely see a difference. I'm going this Friday to get a stomach ultrasound, so that I can take it, along with all the other test results, to the specialist. I'm waiting to schedule my gastro appointment until I get that done, but hopefully they'll be able to see me soon.

So that's what's going on with me lately... Are you having a good summer? : )
