Oh hai! How’s everyone’s week coming along? It’s been a very long and cold one here and honestly, I’m ready to dive into hibernation and resurface in March. Has anyone ever seen the commercial for Hibernaid on SNL with Chris Farley? Anyway, that’s what I wish I had right now. Peace out, winter!
Linking up with my girls to share goals for November. Do you create goals each month? Let me know yours in the comments, and let’s have a look back to see how things went in October!
Book something spooky and/or seasonal—not as much as I would have liked (not a single haunted house tour! SHAME!) buuuut I did go to see Beetlejuice on Broadway which was pretty incredible. I guess that counts?
Post goals earlier in the month ?—I’ll consider this a win since today is the 14th and last month my goals went up on the 17th
Do something that sparks creativity—eh, needs improvement. Can’t cross this one off
Finish three books.—I read two (The Midnight Call and Our Stop). WAH! So close.
Okay, so 2/4. Not bad. And now, here are my goals for November:
Do the things that bring inner peace—‘nuff said!
Return to the gym on a regular basis. Even if only once a week, it’ll be once more than I’ve committed to in some time
Cook more! Enough with eating out—make more stews, soups, and chilis at home using delicious, fresh veggies
Pay off credit card debt—slowly. Which takes me to my next point. Christmas is around the corner and I would like to take advantage of some sales. Without going in stores (since most of the shopping I do is online), how can I avoid adding charges on my credit card? One idea I had was to pay off those charges immediately (I have the option to do that via Amex) OR visit standalone stores like Target, where I can quickly hop in and out and pay with cash. Any advice on keeping credit card splurges to a minimum?
