Wanna see something cool? Check this out...
This is the end of the third quarter and I'm feeling the pinch regarding my 2016 goals.
I'm going to tear through this as quick as I can as we're heading into the holiday weekend and I'd like to actually be caught up on my posts. Something that is happening with less frequency of late. I catch up and fall behind. Oy, daily posting.
Ah the goals. The dreaded feared loathed goals. Why do I do this to myself?
Another month has passed and it's time to recap progress toward my goals. Care to check in with me?
I gotta admit, I'm pretty happy with May overall.
Pitiful. Sad. Dreadful. Lousy. Ridiculous. Shameful. Suckage.
Let's see how March went on the goals front, shall we?
I know it's a few days late, for that I'm sorry. But here is my recap of goal achievement in the month of February.
Is it just wrong that I seriously cannot get into reading this year?
Four years ago today Katie and I received official Doctor's confirmstion that she was pregnant. Wow. Four years.
My final goals recap for 2015 is here. I simply cannot believe it. Bring on December, for better or for worse.
I can't believe I have to write another set of these already. 2016 is less than a day and a half away! Yikes!
I guess it may be time to start thinking about next year's goals, eh? Yup, the time is nigh. In the meantime, how about a recap of how I did on my goals in the month of November?
I would first and foremost like to say... I FINALLY HIT MY STEP GOAL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE MAY!!!! 12,080 steps average for the month!
Goals? We don't need no stinkin' goals! Clearly that's what some part of my brain was thinking this past month. Oy. I loathe to post this.
An interesting month for goal achievement, to be sure. I can make it real quick for you.
Do I really have to do this for July? Can we just call a mulligan and let it go until August's recap? Please?
It's July 1. We're into the second half of 2015 already! Can you believe this crap? Where does the time go? Nathan's third birthday is in two and a half months!
Oh my, was May a rough one on the ol' goals front. So many factors at play here.
Another month bites the dust.
It's no joke, people! Time for my 2015 Goals monthly recap. Where is the year going??
The other night, Katie came across this really cool 16-book reading challenge on Pinterest. It's a themed one where you choose your books based on the selection criteria determined by the Burns Family Blog. I've seen challenges like this in the past but they were mostly photography related. So to see something book related is kinda cool.
It's been an interesting month in terms of goal attainment. I feel pretty good about how 2015 is going thus far. Take a peek!
I really got a little tired of all the formatting work that would go into setting up these recaps the last few years. Because I tend to post using a mobile browser, I hand code all posts in Notepad so they're all pre-formatted and ready to go. It seems many mobile posting apps or websites tend to negate RTF formatting functionality, so it's really good that I know HTML. But it's time to simplify this post as well and make it more truly "readable."
This is the end, beautiful friend, the end. My final update on my 2014 goals.
Welcome to the final day of 2014, also known as a great day to announce my official goals for 2015.
It was a very good month... in No-vem-ber Twen-ty-Four-teen.
Happy November, everyone. While I'm sad October is already done, I'm also glad we got our first snowfall out of the way. That happened yesterday here in Chicagoland. Scary. Anyway here is my Goal Post recap for October.
Another month has come and gone. But now we're into my favorite month of the year! October! I love this month because it's not only Halloween, but also Katie's and my wedding anniversary (13 this year!). The trees change color and drop their leaves. Apple picking. Pumpkin carving. Cooler weather. Break out my vests. October... OH JOY!
I'm writing my August 2014 Goals recap from the waiting room of a Hyundai dealer seething because they cannot replicate the non-start issue I've had happen to me twice in the last two days. And, because it starts fine when it does start, there is no check engine light or error note in the car's computer. Dammit. I hate cars.
Didn't I just write my June recap, like, yesterday? Another month can't have passed already, can it? I guess it can. Wistfully, here is my 2014 Goals recap for the month of June.
And the 2014 Goals continue! Here is my June recap and the final month of the first half of the year. Woah. Where did the time go?
I know it's a few days late. For that I apologize. But, all the same, here is my May recap of progress toward my 2014 Goals! Kind of a weird month because of a week and a half vacation that we started on in the final half of the month. But I’m here and still progressing.
What a dreary day today. I thought it was supposed to be "April showers bring May flowers" not "May showers bring summer flooding conditions." What the deuce?
Hopefully my progress on 2014 Goals won't be quite so dismal.
