A few days late, but I’m here with my May goals! May is going to be a crazy month. Grace and I are BOTH traveling a ton for work, separately, so we have a lot to juggle with our house and pets this month. But everything that’s happening is really exciting and we’re so grateful.
Here’s how I did on my April goals:
Major spring cleaning of our home—some, but unfortunately I wouldn’t say major. But we made a map of our house with highlighted areas where we need to spring-clean, so I’m hoping we’ll continue to make progress.
Frost a couple of windows (that look out to our neighbor’s house—need a little more privacy in this city living!)—yep!
Work on our front yard (I’m picturing string lights, filling up our awesome custom planter we got as a wedding gift, and maaaaybe some furniture)—work in progress! But we have an amazing vision for it and I’m really excited.
Prep for 2 weeks out of town at the end of April/beginning of May—yes! The freezer is stocked with meals for Grace.
Save [redacted] amount toward our emergency fund—not really! We had a bunch of unexpected veterinary expenses this month. But that’s life with two dogs.
Hang wedding pictures in our home (I have the pictures in frames—just FINALLY need to hang them!)—yes and they make me so happy :)
Wake up with my first alarm every day—I’ve gotten in a bad habit of hitting snooze like 5 times—I have mostly stopped setting alarms unless it’s absolutely necessary (as discussed in this post), so not really!
Here is what I’m planning to accomplish in May:
Celebrate two years of Have Dog, Will Drive! I just paid the domain name renewal so that means I’ve had this little blog for two whole years.
Research and buy solar string lights
Make bread from scratch
Book our anniversary weekend
Garden with Grace
Convert my Jetta lease
Complete a major career milestone that is very cool!! Just not in the habit of sharing work details on this blog, otherwise I’d say more :)
I hope you’re having a wonderful May so far. The pics in this post are of May flowers that are blooming in my neighborhood this month!
