Reflection & Rejuvenation: August

Oops! It's been quite a while since I set aside time to reflect on the previous month and set goals for the upcoming month. When I last did it in June, I thought I was still pregnant. I set intentionally light goals for myself to honor my body's needs during the first trimester. At the beginning of July, I realized I was having a miscarriage. I was too busy dealing with the current moment to reflect on the past or set intentions for July. When August started, I was so, so busy with the start of school. 

So, mid-August, here I am! 

What do I want to accomplish this month? Let me look back at my yearly goals to get ideas:
  • Plan a pop-up dinner party for September
  • Start working on Henry's Halloween costume
  • Get our rental house organized once and for all (this gigantic goal is broken down into smaller goals on the whiteboard in our kitchen)
  • Ask our landlord to fix the three broken things in our house
  • Get Henry three cheap little stools for around the house (one in the bathroom to sit and take his underpants off, one in his bedroom to aid in dressing, and one by the front door for getting shoes on and off)
  • Submit the construction budget to the bank so we can see what kind of loan we qualify for and they can do the appraisal to see if we can build what we want to build in our neighborhood
  • Run at least three times a week
  • Do a sun salutation every night before bed
  • Go to the ob/gyn for a yearly exam and pre-conception visit
  • Go to the dentist
  • Read this book about personal finance
  • Track my points every day via Weight Watchers
Okay, I need to stop there. I feel my intentions starting to spiral out of control. Eek!

Let me know if you manage to find those cheap chairs. I want some for Alma also and have only been able to find expensive ones that are also too big!
