August Goals Update


September 1st, where did that come from??  The summer flew by and now we’re quickly working our way into fall.  Fall is my second favorite season and I’ve been dying to go to craft fairs, for crisp fall weather and fall baking for a good 2-3 months now.  Fall is also my favorite season to decorate for, so I’ll be pulling out my fall decorations in the very near future!  Fall also means its getting close to the end of the year and birthday/Christmas season is here.  Didn’t we just have November…a year ago?


Ramblings aside, here’s my monthly update on my goal progress.  I checked off another goal this month by earning over $500 this month through online writing and sales!  I’m hoping to earn even more next year (I am thinking ahead!)  I do need to really crack down on a few goals such as video games, reading and crafts.  At least I still have four more months to catch up.

I’m off in a bit to go to a board game night with friends.  We’re going to be having a potluck of sorts and play Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Loaded Question and possibly Apples to Apples.  I’m really hoping we can get in some Loaded Questions since its a really good group game and there’s going to be 7-8 of us there.  I think the next game I introduce to everyone is going to be Munchkin-it needs to happen 😉
