End of the Month-May 2014

Holy Buckets--where has this year gone?!  Well here we are in June already.  Which means time to read May's wrap-up.

Reading the Old Testament:  Well I was a big ol' slacker and read not a verse more (well in the actual Bible).

For  June: To finish the book of Exodus.

Getting back to Church:   KK and I went :)  It was wonderfully comforting.

For  June:  To make it at least twice this month.

Read a book a month: I did not finish reading Kisses from Katie.  I did read some more, but did not finish.

For  June:  I Will finish reading it!

Journaling at least once a week:  I wrote 16 days.  Which the goal was to have more, but the days I did journal, I journaled.  There were a couple days where I even wrote a few pages worth.

For  June:  To write in at least 17 days worth :)

Finish my quilt (work on other sewing projects): Whew, good thing I didn't commit to doing any, because I didn't.

For  June:  I'm going to delve into the scrapbooking/crafts closet, so I'm not going to focus here.

Hall Closet (scrapbooking/crafts):  It wasn't a priority, but I pulled a few things out.  Though they are just hanging out on my bedroom floor.  So, uh, not much movement there ;)

For  June:  I am making this my goal for the month.  I think I have gone through all my drawers, closet, etc in my bedroom and have that pretty much all nice and organized.  Last weekend I dug in a little more, by pulling out everything in storage under the basement stairs.  I bought some new tubs and rearranged clothing Mimi gave of the girls that they have outgrown.  I went through what was under the stairs, reorganized if necessary and put back everything.  Now I'm going to work on going through what is in the nursery/my craft room.  Get that all organized and in tubs and stored in that room's closet.  Then go through the Hall Closet and get that all organized.  Hopefully some of that can fit into the nursery/craft room's closet and then put the rest back into the Hall Closet.  That way I can start utilizing that room to scrapbook with all the supplies I already have and then also finish my quilt/sew.

Try a new recipe and food item a pay period:  I made this barbeque chicken in the crockpot.  OH my stars!  I was in love with eating the leftovers in a toritlla with some cheese and sour cream.  Like I looked forward to eating it at night. . .for three nights in a row ;)  I also made Crockpot Chicken Soup, and that was truly devine.  I plan to make posts for these as well as one for the Banana Pancakes I had as welll, so that's all I'll leave here.

For  June:  Again try one more new recipe and food item for the month.

Being active daily: Nopers.

For  June:  I HAVE to get with it.

Eating less processed foods/Eating more organic, whole foods:  Ummmmm. . .yeah, no.

For  June:  I'm focusing on trying to get at least five fruits/veggies a day.  That and actually making my meals, or lunches to take to work.  I mean I already do this, but doing more prep than already prepared.  Since those usually cost more ;)

Lose 10% of weight:  I managed to keep off the five, but lost no more.

For  June:  Lose another 5 pounds.

Yep, I took some out.

Monthly Challenge:  There wasn't one for May.

For  June:  See "Hall Closet".

Woot woot!  Got May's review up in the first week of June :)  Here's to working on goals and commitments!
