I know I say it every month, but how in the heck is it (insert month here)? Speaking of being a broken record, have you ever found yourself repeating the same story to the same person over and over, but you’re convinced this person has absolutely never heard this amazing story and they totally need to know all about it? I think that’s called early onset dementia, and also the story of Bryan’s life (sorry buddy, ha!). Also it totally runs in my family and how soon is too soon to get this looked into (asking for a friend)?
Anyway, as per usual I’m veering far off course here. Let’s have a look back at May and see how we did!
- Have a kick ass time in Berlin (I think I can do that) <uhm, yea I did that!
- Treat myself to at least 2 new outfits and a jean jacket <well, I still didn’t find a jean jacket but I did score new outfits to wear (two new dresses, in fact!)
- Pay off some bills <YES! But the bills don’t stop/won’t stop, so it’s like a drop in the bucket)
- Try and find Rico a home, at least temporarily while we are away <YES! Though I’m not really sure my efforts contributed all that much. We had to bring him back to the shelter because we were getting ready to leave for Berlin and it was all slightly chaotic. While we were away, we received an email that he had been placed in a new foster home and apparently he’s obsessed with his new foster poppa. YAY for happy endings and fingers crossed the little guy gets adopted soon!
So I kind of rocked my goals and didn’t even mean to! Also I wish I could put “buy a new outfit” on my list every month, but alas, I can’t if I have any hopes of ever paying off my bills. That said, let’s move on to June, and a few things I’m hoping to accomplish this month:
Get back to the gym OR set aside time (3x/week) to work out in some capacity (yoga, bike, long walks, etc.)
Read! Summer is for guilty pleasures and I’m planning on starting Hello, Sunshine tonight, a book I received in my Introvert’s Retreat box (a monthly subscription box I received as a gift from my brother and his gf who clearly think I’m a hermit crab. Not denying this LOL). Also Goodreads tells me I’m 14 books behind schedule, which seems extreme and also please send me your reading recommendations asap!
Have people over for a BBQ / get together. We’re finally getting the house together, and it would be lovely to celebrate the beginning of summer with friends and family <3 my parents came over yesterday and we finally have a patio set with ample seating for people (thanks to Bryan’s family!)
Take care of things I’ve put on the back burner for way too long. Like that weird growth under my boob (TMI?) and figuring out other fertility options. I’ve kind of put this off for a while but a part of me wants to know if this is it or if we still have avenues to explore. Trying to remain optimistic
And that’s it. Keeping it short and sweet for the month. Can’t wait to read what’s made your list for the month and happy Monday, you guys!
