September 2015 Review

September 2015 was the hardest and saddest month I’ve had in a long time! I knew I’d have a hard time with my daughter going to college but it was still more than I bargained for with the empty house. In addition to the time alone, I’m trying to learn what brings me peace now that I don’t spend so much of my life taking care of my children. But that is another post for a future date. On a more cheerful note, here’s a review¬†of last month’s accomplishments from September.

June 2015 Review

I’m so glad life settled down in June! There was still plenty going on and I got overwhelmed a few times but overall things were manageable. I’m looking forward to the routine of school, but I do enjoy not having to get kids up and out the door on time. I just wish I could spend more time being lazy or playing with them!Raejean Glasses

1 – Bicycle wheel on my wall, the first step of our family mission statement display

2 – New lenses again – I had to have them remade since I’m poly-carbonite sensitive

2.2 – Pounds gained. Darn it!

3 – Treats made: Hot Chocolate Cookies, French Toast Cupcakes and (a brand new to us recipe) Salted Caramel Brownies

4 – Days at a writing retreat; I may have overestimated the snack to hiking ratio and gained most of my weight that weekend

7 – Social events, there were parties, retreat and dinners with friends

9 – Projects completed in June, and only a few of them were writing related

June 2015 Instagram32 – Instagram pix posted in June

37 – Countries that visited Just Wanna Be Me in June, Brazil was #2 after the USA

459 – Page views, my Summer Goals for Kids was the most popular

1626 – Russian twists, I lost a half inch in my waist, but gained it on my hips

3886 – Words added to my book, yay retreat!

With 2015 half over, I looked back over my New Year’s Goals. I’ve completed or am on track for six of my ten goals; I completed my Associate in Claims, went to a writing conference and I start training for my promotion tomorrow. Thanks to the writing retreat, I exceeded my writing goal of 5000 words to my book and I still have six months left! I have been very diligent about tracking my food and exercise and have blogged at least once a month (barely, but I’m still hanging in there). The rest of my goals seem pretty far out of reach but they help me track my growth and fine tune what is truly important in my life.

How’s your progress with your resolutions or goals at the half way point of 2015?
