Pin It It's hard to believe that there is only one week left until the end of summer! Where did it go?? I still have so much to do in August!! This month has been pretty busy so far and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down any time soon. I finally started getting assignments at my part-time job. I like extra money but it will take some time to adjust my schedule to include more work. I also have been canning again this week :) Peach jam and pickled vegetable mix this time. Oh, and I'm working on the boys' bedroom a lot right now. I really want to finish it before the Kid starts Kindergarten on the 4th of September. I can't wait to share with you what we've done in their room!
But I still need to finish a few things before I can show it to you :) So right now I better give you a little update on my monthly goals:
I've done pretty good with de-cluttering this week. I organized boys' clothes and got some ready for the Kid for Kindergarten. I still need to prepare everything for winter and see what we need to buy. I went through our closet too and got a nice bag of clothes ready for a donation. I had a few shirts that I was holding onto when I cleaned all of the closet back in February. But I never put them on this summer so I knew it was time for them to go. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures this time.
2. Lose weight
Well, no good news here:( I didn't lose anything. I didn't gain anything either so this at least is somewhat comforting. To be honest, I was surprised with the results. I did exercise a few times and my muscles are nicely sore. But oh well...Hopefully, I'll do better next week...
3. Stay within a budget in all areas.
Nothing much changed since last week either. We shopped very little in the last few days other than a trip to Home Depot and a Dollar Store for some supplies and a stuff for Kid's Birthday party in the beginning of September. As far as groceries, we should only need bread next week, so I might just bake it and stay away from the grocery store altogether. I still hope to stay in green overall this month.
How are you doing this month? Are you ready for fall?
