Fall is fast approaching and here we are with another (late) edition of our monthly goals.
CREATE A HOME INVENTORY:
Action: Fill in an inventory with important household items and pantry food.
I was able to make a comprehensive list of household items but I didn’t get enough time to create a food inventory. Maybe sometime in the future though!
Action: Finish planning for September’s trip to Europe.
This is done for the most part. Ashamed to say that I still have to finalize some stuff but yeah, this is pretty much finished up.
GET SOME SLEEP
Action: Pay attention to my bed time and shut off the TV at least an hour beforehand.
I had a few notably exhausting days (namely on moving weekend) but otherwise I think I did a good job with this one.
HAVE SOME FUN!
Action: Make sure I don’t overbook priorities!
I’m trying to wrap up some loose ends so that I can enjoy my upcoming vacation and other fun September events!
Action: Finish purchases for dumb stuff lingering in my “To Buy” list.
Since the move, I have left a few necessary random household items in limbo and I want to just get all that stuff taken care of ASAP.
Action: Restructure various to-do lists and scedules.
I have been doing a good job keeping organized during the move but now that it is over I need to check back in with my daily tasks and figure out how to restructure everything.
Action: Ride a new trail.
Unfortunately, I did not get to accomplish this goal with the house renovation work. I may not have very much time to mountain bike in the near future but hopefully I’ll have time to get outside soon.
Action: Finish demo work and clean up on the new home.
Accomplished! There are still a few things to tidy up here and there but we finished everything we needed to get done and more. Now on to more projects.
Work with contractors!
Action: Finish major reno work to be done by contractors before the end of the month.
Success! I was also able to do more things on my own than initially anticipated!
Action: Finish 3 basement projects from the renovation to-do list.
There are a handful of projects I’m trying to get done but I want to prioritize this area.
Action: Bike to work for at least 3 days.
So far, I love biking to work from the new place. I hope to make it a regular thing.
BUY A FRIDGE
Action: Finish one of the major kitchen purchases and buy a fridge!
JOINT GOALS: JUNE 2017
Action: Organize, purge and transfer all of our stuff to our new place.
WITH INTENSE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY we were able to totally ace this goal!
Action: Outline necessary renovation projects for the new house and come up with budgets/timelines.
We are both feeling good about the renovation progress that we are making so far! The timelines and to-do tasks are constantly being updating and evolving to meet our needs but it’s all pretty exciting in a good way.
Action: Plan a short hike/outdoor activity.
We didn’t technically plan any day trips but we spent a lot of time exploring new green spaces around our new neighborhood so I’m counting this down as a win!
Action: Apply deadline periods to our renovation goals.
Time to prioritize and focus!
Action: Finish design plans for kitchen.
The two toughest rooms in the house require a LOT of planning. We are pretty close to getting the design plans finished up but “pretty close” doesn’t cut it.
ENJOY OUR VACATION!
Action: Have a blast at Oktoberfest and our bf’s wedding in Bournemouth!!
We are so excited to break up our routine and spend time with a bunch of our amazing friends!
