Hey, that rhymes!
We’re at the end of July and I’m sitting here wondering where the month went.
I feel like we JUST came back from the awesome 4-day weekend that was the 4th of July. I JUST got used to writing “07” on all my paperwork. I JUST accepted the fact that my daughter was twenty two months old, so close to two years old, I was in major denial.
Tomorrow is August.
In January, I didn’t set any goals for 2013. But I feel like I haven’t really done much this year. I feel like I’ve been letting the months just go by.
So, with July ending, I want to set some goals for the end of the yearl
Reopen the Etsy store, CutieQ Cards n Crafts: I’m in the process of building inventory for the store. I have about 4 cards listed as drafts. It’s just a matter of getting up to 10 items listed before I make them public. I am taking custom orders through my Facebook page, CutieQ Cards n Crafts, that I turn into Etsy custom orders. Visit my Facebook page for details.
Take a vacation: This is a cop-out goal. We have a vacation lined up already. So, if God permits, this goal will be completed by the end of August.
Handmade Christmas gifts: Because our Christmas list seems to grow every year, AND because I LOVE giving handmade stuff away during Christmas, I would love to create handmade cardsets for some of the families that are near and dear to us. I just have to find the time and inspiration. I also need to make a list so I know how many I need to do..
Family pictures: M is just a handful and a half. She’s so full of energy, I’m really hesitant about this goal. I’m afraid that we won’t be able to take good pictures because she’ll refuse to stay still. But I love my family, and I would love to capture every year of our lives, if possible. This goal is a “maybe.”
Project Life: I’m barely getting into March on my 2013 Project Life scrapbook. The goal is to get to June before the end of the year.
Vegas?! Every year, I set a goal to go to Vegas. I like Vegas. We went last year and it was such a different experence with a child. I still like being there, I think it’s all the lights.. This goal is a “maybe.”
That’s all I can think about.. Those seem attainable.
We’ll see how far I got when December comes.
