2011 Goals Update

Well the end of the month is upon us, and my thoughts as always turn towards the goals I set out at the beginning of the year.  Here's how this month shaped up...

With the welcome addition of a full time pay cheque, we're finally able to start updating some things around the house.  Our family room is the first room on our list.  It's time for our hand-me-down couch and large, non-flat screen TV to go.  I could go on, but suffice it to say that I can't wait to finally have a family room that's comfortable, modern, and not embarrassing to entertain in.

Academically, there's finally a tentative date set for my defense, pending my ability to submit the changes to my paper in a timely fashion.  I foresee my husband and son spending some quality time together during a weekend in the near future.

One of my goals was to spend more quality time with friends and family, and September has been a great month for that.  The street party gave me a chance to hang out with my neighbours.  Being back at work reconnected me with colleagues I hadn't seen in a while.  A birthday party for the son of a friend provided an opportunity to see some of my husband's work friends that I hadn't seen since last year.

Health wise, being back at work has helped me be more active.  I'm on my feet most of the day, and I've been doing a lot of walking.  I've tried to have a smoothie for breakfast every day, and I've been bringing my lunch as well.  Hopefully I can keep this up...
