I did pretty good with my April goals. I did manage to clean out and organize that bathroom closet. It wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought, and well I did have a few things I needed to get rid of.
I managed to get all of the leaves raked up in the yard. Okay, I did a lot of it, but then a couple kids from the neighborhood showed up and asked if they could rake them for $20. It was a deal!
And yes, I got my taxes completed ahead of time! And yes, I got a return. And yes, I have spent it all on bills.
And I did enjoy reading more during the month of April.
So what do I want to accomplish in May? I've been thinking.
1. Get the gutters on the house cleaned out. I have put it off a couple of years. Yes, isn't that awful. It's routine maintenance, but for various reasons it hasn't been done the past two years. So I am either going to get up on a ladder and do it myself or hire someone this month. It has to be done.
It was a project that took me a while to complete, but I enjoyed working on it. It also really helped me relax. So this month I want to start another zentangle and see where that goes.
3. Review pictures on blog posts. I have some fairly solid blog posts. But looking back through the posts I've noticed that my pictures are not what they should be. I think I can do better. I think that I can plan out some really good photos and take them. I guess I'll need to work on some of my photography skills too. But I have a few ideas, now can I put some of them into action?
4. Update my resume. I realized last night when I was out with a friend that while for the most part I enjoy my current job, it is not meeting some of the needs I have in life. I work a strange work schedule. And my employer seems to not be able to schedule me less than six or seven days a week. Both of these issues are causing me to spend less time with individuals that I enjoy spending time with. And when I do spend time with them I am so tired that I am unable to fully enjoy the time. The first step in finding a new job that will meet my needs is updating my resume.
So thee are the big four goals I have for the month of May. What do you want to accomplish this month?
