I blinked and now it’s October. Where did September go? I truly cannot believe how fast this month went by. Here’s a recap of my goals for the month.
- Update resume & portfolio.
Fail! Huge fail since this was suppose to happen in August. Oh well. I’ll do it on a slow day at work… if there ever is one.
- Go running 4 times a week; work up to 8, 9, 10, 11-mile runs. Fail! I ran two 10-mile runs and one 9 mile. So, pretty decent I suppose.
- Pay $500 to debt.
Check! As always, so excited to pay this off!
- Figure out how to pay for the cruise.
Check! Paid $150 and will pay the remainder Oct & Nov.
- Get oil changed in car.
Fail! I didn’t get my oil changed but did get some other stuff worked on.
- Figure out new raise/money allocation.
Check! Half to 401k, half to debt. :)
- Put at least half of the extra income I get into Emergency Fund.
Ehh? Half of the income went to Car Repair fund, not E-fund. Still a success I’d say.
- Put together a list of fun fall things to do.
Fail! I think I have too many to do lists! I’ll just make these fun things part of my October to-do list.
- Cook at least four new recipes.
Fail! I made two new recipes: pumpkin bars & angel pasta chicken.
- Spend $100 on clothes.
Check! I spent $101 on myself and love the new autumn clothes!
Yay for pumpking bars! I’m glad you liked them as much as I did!
Great job! I am at the same place you are with the to do lists. I love lists, but seriously…..I am feeling a little robotic. Good luck this next month.
