September Goals

This month is the calm before the storm that is October.

I think I will be able to relax and enjoy September, while continuing to put off doing anything baby-related since it's still several weeks until crunch time.

(Brian and I have not done anything to prepare for this baby, which I'll probably write about in a separate blog post.)

Goal #1: Write blog post about being the most unprepared mother in the world.

In all seriousness though, I need to develop a plan....for my blog. A schedule, perhaps. I need to be more intentional with my content, how often I post, etc. (Goal #2)

Goal #3: Continue working out at the gym 3-4 times/week. Back in July, I was thisclose to freezing my gym membership until after I had a baby, but then I realized I needed to stay in good shape. My internal organs are currently being squashed, especially my lungs, and I have a trip to Colorado coming up in a few weeks. I usually wouldn't be worried about the high elevation, but I can barely breathe down here at sea level, so I'm going to need all the oxygen I can get.

Goal #4: Read many books. This one should be fairly easy because I am house-sitting for my parents for several days this month. I'll have a lot of down time in the evenings to sit outside and read. Tonight I will finally finish reading Stephen King's "The Shining." I'm excited to pick out new books for this month.

I decided to put off our porch makeover this month and save that task for October. October is great for mums, and burlap, and pumpkins, and festiveness. I think I'll appreciate a porch makeover more in October. So it shall wait. Our porch will look crappy for another four weeks and that will be that.
