17 Goals for 2017 - Progress Report #3

So want to know how much I suck? I haven't written one single post since my last goals update. That means, in exactly three months, nothing has been posted to my poor neglected blog. I'm pretty sure that's a record for me. I won't make you any promises for how the next three months will go, but hopefully I'll be able to get one ore two posts up before my final goal update at the end of December. Sorry to my readers, if I have any left. 

Now on to my goals, I think I'm doing okay. 

1. Read 12 books Done! Joining a book club definitely helped this year, although my goal was pretty small as it is.
2. Renovate basement It's so close! I'm still aiming to be done all the interior renovations by the end of November (our 2 year anniversary of living in the house) and then after that I should be able to post lots of updated house pictures.
3. Run my fifth 5k Done! And I ran the whole thing! Time was 38:47. I actually also ran another one in September and my time was 35:28. Go me!
4. Set up a nursery So the room is getting emptier, but I'm not sure if my heart can take a set up nursery with no baby. So this might not happen...
5. Blog at least twice a month Haha! This one went out the window!
6. Take a pottery class with Dan Done! We had so much fun and I will be blogging about it soon
7. Visit the ocean I went in July and it was amazing! I need to go to the ocean more.
8. Go on a weekend camping trip We got out in August and the weather couldn't have been better.
9. Clear backyard and bring in fill It looks like a wild jungle out there. Seriously, thistles taller than me and giant holes with crazy amounts of greenery. Eek! Hopefully soon though....
10. Make a budget We are starting this up again and are doing well so far. We're even hosting and leading Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University course.
11. Go on a date once a month with Dan I'm going to say we're still rocking this one, even though our dates aren't overly exciting. Dancing last night though, that was fun!
12. Buy new windows for the basement I'm crossing this off my list because we have ordered them and paid for them, so it totally counts. And they'll be installed before the end of the year.
13. Start a couples infertility support group Done!
14. Colour more often Oh.... I haven't coloured in ages.
15. Start organizing photos on the computer This may have been a lofty goal. Although if I wasn't working full time, I'd for sure be able to spend more time organizing myself.
16. Attend a dance workshop Attended one the end of March. Read more about it here.
17. Do bookkeeping at least once a month Keeping up with this one! Woohoo!

I'm really impressed with how many things I was able to cross off over the last few months and am excited about the fact I will be able to cross off at least four more things by the end of the year! Not too shabby at all!

So there you have it, my goal update and "I'm still alive" blog post all wrapped up into one. Is anyone still reading my blog? Comment if you are!


  1. Well it's nice to know you're still alive! Say hello a teeny bit more pften! Good luck finishing those goals.

  2. Still reading. :) although, I stopped checking on the blog a couple months ago. Glad facebook prompts me when there is new content! :p

  3. still here and reading! (also. i LOVE to color. lol)

  4. I still check by every now and again. Nice to see how much you've achieved over the last three months! No wonder you didn't have time to blog ;)
