I think I blinked and then all of a sudden it's October - how the heck did that happen? :) What are your October goals?

October Goals:
  1. Start decorating our house and make it our home.
  2. Start reading "Wheat Belly".
  3. Have 5 amazing work events! Yep - 5!!!
  4. Start Christmas shopping.
    • I know - I'm sick :) I have a few things already but need to get my shopping list organized this month for sure.
  5. Finish reading "Boundaries".
    • Carried over from September.
Updated September Goals:
  1. Drink more H2O.
    • DONE!
  2. Take more photos.
    • DONE!
  3. Get front window on our house fixed.
    • Scheduled for October 5th. DONE!
  4. Get our furnace inspected (bought the DealFind so now just have to call and get an appointment set up).
    • Stupid DealFind company went out of business. Not going to worry about this right now. PRETTY MUCH DONE! :)
  5. Work on truly not caring what anyone else things and not needing validation. I am good enough and I need to know it!
    • Working on this and making HUGE progress!
On-Going Goal Updates:
  1. Start working on Legare's MOH speech.
    • August: Have not started but do have it on my list and have some very fun ideas for a starting point.
    • September: Starting working on a little something, something extra for my main girl. Excited about it!
    • October: The something extra is complete and the speech is on its way. Progress!
  2. Create summer photo albums as gifts for two very special people in my life.
    • August: Have purchased supplies but have not physically started working on this project. I feel okay about this as these are Christmas gifts so I have time.
    • September: Have purchased more supplies and printed off some photos. Can't wait to jump into this a bit more over the fall!
    • October: I'm on holidays in November and this will get started and (hopefully) completed that week!
  3. Eat more slowly, say grace and think before eating.
    • September: I have zero clue as to why but this is such a challenge for me!
    • October: Still so working on this!
  4. Get my recipe project in order and start cooking them!
    • September: Must work on this for the fall. 
    • October: Hope to work on this when I have some time off in November!
