Sharing our Spoons: September

I'm so glad we are starting this up again.  Instead of weekly goals its been moved to monthly goals.  Which I think is great since mine stayed the same for the most part.  I am starting out kinda light, but hopefully I will come up with some more challenging goals!  I'm open to suggestions too!   Here are my September Goals...
  1. Physical: Get outside more.  To walk the dog, run, yard work, what every.  This weekend we hit up the pool and I had forgot just how happy sunshine made me.  There is just something about it that relaxes me.  I spend way to much time indoors.  I would like to be outside more than just to walk Anthony to and from the bus stop!  
  2. Mental/Emotional: Say yes more often.  And not just to the boys but to myself too.  I turn down so many things because I let my head get in the way.  I'm stubborn and I really need to loosen up and live again!
  3. Spiritual: Go to church. I've been saying it for to long and I need to just do it already!  Its been a few months since I've been and it wasn't even one here in town.  I know my mom would go with me, and it would be nice to spend that time with her.
  4. Something fun: Date Night!  I need this bad!  And I know after the schedule David is on this month, he will be needing one too.  I don't even need a whole night, just a few hours will be more than enough to me!
  5. BONUS: Its almost time for the Vital Alliance Donate Life 5K again.  Actually just remembered that it is next month already.  The past 2 years I have raised well over my first goal of $100.  I always feel so bad asking for donations.  Especially when I have already been shown so much love.  But I keep telling my self it is for a great cause and I only ask once....or twice.  I guess first I should register though.  And before I do that I need to figure out if I want to get a team together or just walk as an individual....
So there they are!  These goals seem easy enough for the first month.  How will I do?  What will I come up with next month?   Only time will tell :)

Progress linkups will be posted the first Tuesday of every month!  Be sure to stop by A New Kind of Normal and see what everyone else is up to this month too!

  1. Great goals!!! We need a date night sooo bad! We were really good at setting up a sitter every other Monday for date night (one of our college students at church) but we've let it go by the wayside for far too long!
