2015 November Update

October started out pretty well, but I could feel things getting a little crazier by the end of the month.  Some new things did change this month!

A Better Relationship with God

  1. Take time each morning and night to spend with God. – Journaling at night almost completely fell off by the end of the month.  I still journaled from time to time, and I have a new journal that I will be trying for the month of November to see if that helps.  Morning journal time was replaced with First Five – and app from the Proverbs 31 crew.  I love it!

Honoring Marriage

  1. Have prayer times specifically directed about Michael – About mid-month, Michael started having some back issues and illness, so prayers started to really focus on his healing.  He’s doing much better, but I have to admit, I did enjoy taking care of him when he was down.

Living A Healthier Life

  1. Live a more active life – There were ups and downs to this.  When Michael’s back problems started, we stopped walking in the morning.  However, right about that time, I started taking care of four dogs outside of my two at home.  This included a lot of walking and playing outside.  I have to say, this is my absolute favorite kind of exercise!

Get The House in Order

  1. Work on projects set aside in the kitchen, library, and master bedroom – Towards the end of October, I managed to get some stuff accomplished in the bedroom.  I’m hoping to complete that by the end of November (another blog post *hopefully* by the end of the month).  As for the library, the changes that I want to do to the room, I think will happen next year.  We really focused on Michael’s coral tanks this year instead of what I originally thought I would focus on, which was productive in itself.

Being Involved in the Community

  1. Volunteer with the SPCA– Fostered dog six this month

Developing Personal Time

  1. Schedule a pamper/relaxation time each month– I got my nails done at my favorite salon.  And I loved the girl who did them.  Her name was Mandy (I’m writing that here so I won’t forget!)

It’s slowly getting colder here, and I’m ready for the cooler weather.  I think I realized this weekend that November is going to be a lot harder than I thought it would be.  All I can do is give myself permission to have space and take time to work through whatever I need to!

Did you work on goals?  Can you believe there are only two more months to the year?
