With fall starting on Friday, I think a summer goals recap is in order. (Side note: link up with me and Betsy for fall goals on Friday! Grab your button below!) When I looked back at my post, I laughed. I wrote it when I was in Boston, finishing up a conference, and right before experiencing such excruciating pain that I would find myself in surgery a month later. Life is funny.
Summer Goals Recap
- [DONE] –
Convert all our data to the new SIS management system.
I actually succeed on this front! We’re still learning the ins and outs of it, but it’s so fantastic to be in a spot where we can control our own data. Now I just need to get everyone using it.
- [Half-Done] – Spa day. Oh goodness, a spa day.
After getting back from Boston, I booked a massage with Paul at the Four Seasons, but I ended up in more pain that when I started. I was cleared for massages in mid-August and booked facial and massage at the Crescent Spa during the last week of August. I think I have another gift certificate to the Four Seasons for a massage and facial, so I need to schedule that, too.
- [Half-Done] – Finish organizing / decorating the home office
Every time I get this finished, more crap ends up in there. I bought a roman shade, but I did not install the brackets correctly, so I can’t actually use it. I need to get my mom over to the house to help me fix it so that I can actually raise and lower the shade. I have been using my iMac more, especially since I’m in the middle of re-designing my blog, so I’d say it’s kind of a win.
- [FAIL] – Edit the rest of my Italy pictures
I’m down to just needing to finish Rome. “Just” means that there are still 1200 photos left to cull and edit. I have been trying to work on it a little at a time, especially on the weekends. I’m very big into this idea of not creating more work for myself this year. It’s been fun to look back through the Rome pictures. We did so much while we were there that I don’t remember all of it. (That’s one reason I love photography – my husband and I will go through our books and revisit / remember our adventures.
- [Half-Done] – Blog the rest of my favorite parts of Italy 2018
I was happy to share more on the best tours in Florence, the fresh pasta cooking class, and all the rooms with views that we’ve stayed in during our trips to Florence… but there’s still so much to say! (I can’t wait to tell you about how we made pizza in Rome… but I haven’t even gotten to those photos yet!)
Fall Goals on Friday!
