August. HOW IN THE HELL IS IT ALREADY AUGUST?! I’m feeling a weird sense of summer FOMO. I haven’t enjoyed it enough. Haven’t done enough fun summer activities—and I’m not sure if it’s because of the epic heat or the move but I’m hoping that this month I catch up on all the things I’ve missed out on earlier this season. Anyone else feeling the same way?
Here are some goals for July. Let’s see how I did!
Get a manicure. Schedule a haircut. – FAIL. I actually wanted to get several manicures but I didn’t see the point considering I was moving and schlepping most of the month. Now that we’re settled I can do that, and get a haircut in time for my friend’s wedding this weekend!
Finish two books – FAIL! Though I read one REALLY GOOD ONE! The Woman in Cabin 10 which I highly recommend for anyone who likes murder mysteries
Spend time outdoors and take in all the fresh air—This I have been doing. Ever since we moved to Rockaway, Bryan and I eat our dinner outdoors every night (if humidity allows!) and I have been reading outside whenever possible
Write more and with renewed passion—ehhhh, I can’t exactly cross this off. I have had moments of inspiration, but overall I felt frantic last month
Pick up the phone when people call. I am so guilty of letting calls go to voicemail but answering means I won’t have to go through my messages later and I can take care of pressing matters quickly—YES! I continue to do this and it’s nice to use a phone for something other than texting
Here are some goals for August—what’s on your list?
- Get settled in our new home—unpack boxes, clean out the old apartment, go through storage, find my llama doormat
- Sell furniture and things we have no use for in the new place
- Reevaluate my health goals—do I continue my gym membership? Should Bryan and I splurge on a Peleton?
- Do something fun and SUMMERY! Before it’s all over. Sniff!
