I’ve fallen off the deep end haven’t I?
Ever since that April challenge ended, I haven’t felt the urge to write. This isn’t cool for my mental well-being. The desire to write isn’t there. I think it also helped that I was having a regular weekly writing session with like minded ladies. That helped. That helped a lot.
Anyway, I realize that I owe y’all a Throwback Thursday and a 55 Fridays. It’s gonna have to wait until the appropriate days. Sorry.
Tomorrow is Monday, June 1st. Which means, the summer goals needs to be set.
Goal #1: Reread the books from my childhood. The idea for this summer reading goal came from here where I waxed poetic about the books I read when I was kid. I’m adding a little twist and adding the books I should have read. This includes books such as A Wrinkle in Time, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Westing Game and The Giver. I’m using the previous post as a guide and this one I found on Goodreads. Any books I should be adding to my list?
Goal #2: Get my backyard in order. I cannot tell you how unruly my backyard is. Every year it is overtaken by vines and I can’t get it under control. This year, I took my lawnmower to it first and then asked for some help from a friend of mine. Today, we tackled the northeast corner of the lawn. It’s overgrown with vines, honeysuckle, and other things that I couldn’t identify. Also, there’s a chain link fence that has long ago, fallen down on the job. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it, since I think it’s technically “mine.”
Goal #3: Go to as many outdoor yoga classes as I can during the summer. I think I can hit a different class each Saturday or Sunday without duplicating the class more than twice. Today’s class kicked my ass, in a good way, of course. I just have to find more shade the next time I go. Next Sunday I will be going to a class overlooking the city. That should be cool.
I like lists and I like goals. Writing them down forces me to go through with it.
Tuesday is the start of our bathroom remodel. Ten years ago, right before we moved in, we had it remodeled. The contractor who did it, did not do a very good job. I’m hoping this one sticks.
My husband is not looking forward to having to shower at his parents house. It’s chaos.
(Hail Hydra, I whisper to him grinning.)
After the bathroom remodel is done, will be the time to start the whole IVF process again. Do I stay with the original clinic? Move to another one? The original clinic knows us. The clinic I’m thinking of possibly moving to is a bit closer to home.
Hope your Sunday was peaceful.
