September?  Seriously?!

What happened to August?  What did I do in August?  Why does August seem like just a blip in time?!

I plan to make the most of September, thre’s a lot going on..

For starters, I change jobs.  I finish at my current job on September 9th, I begin the new job on September 14th.  From a close-to-home job, to a 1 1/2-2 hr commute.. It’s a step-up, but the commute is what I dread the most.  But, as always, God will provide, so I’m not gonna worry.

Joe and I will also be taking our first “airplane trip” weekend.  We’re going to two weddings on the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend in San Francisco.  We aren’t flying in together, blame that on the “long-distance relationship.”

Lastly, September has always had a special place in my heart.  Someitmes it’s in a good place, other times its in a bad place.  This year, I’m not quite sure what place it is in.  September is my birthday month and this year I’ll be turing “the big 2-9.”  Yes.. twenty-nine.  The last year of my 20s and I don’t quite know how to handle it.  Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll be keeping you posted.  Luckily for me, my birthday falls towards the end of the month so I’ve got most of September to mentally prepare myself.

That’s pretty much how my September is going to go.  Through all the festivities I’ll have to juggle school and time for my wonderful “long-distance” boyfriend..

It all seems overwhelming.. but I just gotta take it one day at a time..

I’m in a complaining mood, but I have decided not to give into it.

Instead, I’d like to talk about my goals for the rest of the year.. in “list-form..”

I have more the exceeded my initial goal for Disneyland visits, and I have done my fair share of Vegas vacations this year.  I’ve gone to the beach.. I’ve had fun this year.. and now that we are counting down to the end of the year (crazy.. I know!).. it’s time to set some goals, plans, promises.. and/or resolutions for this last half..

1.  I promise not to stress out on Christmas gifts this year.  Every year is the same problem.. I never know what I am going to get various people in my life and I start to stress out just thinking about it.. I’m a terrible gift-giver.. I’d rather people just tell me what they want.. it’s so much easier that way.. I can never figure out what people want or like..

2.  I want to go to snow this year. I would love to go up to the mountains and go to the snow.. of course.. being Southern California.. the snow usually comes in January – March of the following year.. but you understand what I’m trying to say..

3.  I want to go to Disneyland (and take the boyfriend) during the holiday season.  To me.. Disneyland is at it’s best when it’s all decked out for the holidays.. it’s a must-go.. so I must take him!

4.  My girlfriends and I have to get together for the Xmas gift exchange BEFORE Christmas!  We always buy each other Christmas presents.. but our busy schedules always cause us to get together and give them to each other after Christmas.. sometimes.. several months after.. like.. in APRIL!! 

5.  I will not get suckered into singing something during the cold winter months.  I get so stressed out when I have to sing during the winter.. cold air makes it hard to hit the high notes.. and then I’m so susceptible to getting sick during the winter.. I know I say I will not get suckered into it.. but I know I probably will.. I can never turn down an opportunity to sing..

There  you go.. my list of five things to hold myself responsible for… for the end of the year..
