I am almost finished with my June To Do List, and I want to have goals for the summer. Here are my:
1. Hope: Be a better dog owner
Plan: I want to teach Macy to give me the ball when we play fetch rather than making me chase her for it! I also want to teach her to lay and shake. Now that I have the time I need to work with her. I have been so lazy with her training.
2. Hope: Be a better long distance friend
Plan: Get my phone out and text me friends from high school and college that I think about but forget to write. I want to keep in touch and be a good friend, but I have been terrible at it. There are so many lives that I know nothing about now because I am so bad about keeping up. I can't stand scrolling through my facebook news feed so I miss so much of people lives :)
3. Hope: Finally loose those last 6 pounds that won't go.
Plan: I have weighed 136 on every scale constantly for about 2 years. I don't seem to be able to lose any weight! I really want to be at 130. I am healthy and working really hard in the gym now but I want to lose a little fat and tone up more. My plan is to eat no sweets (except my freeze pops that I HAVE to have) and stop eating after 6 NO EXCEPTIONS!
4. Hope: Be a better prayer
Plan: Lately I tried to have my prayer time as I lay in bed for the night but that just isn't working. I fall asleep in the middle of praying, the dog wants to snuggle and I forget, or I just plain fall asleep before my head hits the pillow. I use to be rushing to get ready in the mornings but now that Macy wakes up so early and I don't have to go to work as early I am going to switch prayer time to the mornings. Alissa made this awesome prayer journal and I want to make one as well!
5. Hope: Be a better reader
Plan: I used to read anything in sight when I was younger. I think college burnt me out on reading for awhile. My first college assignment was to read the Illiad (about 300 pages) in one weekend! My brain has been a bit tired from reading! Here are the books I want to read this summer.
6. Hope: Visit Alabama!!
Plan: I haven't been home since Thanksgiving and I am planning to go back mid-July for a bit. I can't wait to have breakfast at Tip Top Grill over looking the ridge, go thrift shopping with my sister, and visit my Alma Mater for a music session!
7. Hope: Go to a Charleston Battery soccer game
Plan: Pick a date and actually go!
8. Hope: Have a 4th of July Party
Plan: Start inviting people! I want to make the patriotic truffle that I posted awhile back and I would love to go up to the lake for the 4th.
9. Hope: Go to the beach!
Plan: I want to plan to go up 3 times a month. Let's see if I can pull that off!
