April Recap/May Goals

April Goals
1. Get the oil changed. Done!

2. Set a budget for my trip. Done! And I got a surprise birthday present that covered all of my spending, so that was even better.

3. Have a low-key birthday. Done. A few quiet dinners, some lovely flowers. Perfect.

4. Try four new recipes. Mostly pass - I definitely made three new recipes (lentil and tofu curry, strawberry-rhubarb freezer jam, and fried rice) and one old-old-old one that I hadn't made in years (artichokes).

5. Clean out the filing cabinet. Complete fail. I thought about it twice and that's it.

May Goals1. Start trying to live on one income again. Theoretically, we should be able to do this...but we haven't had a "normal" month since we bought the house...and then bought a jeep...and had $700 in unexpected medical bills (twice)...and had a vacation...and and and and and....

2. Bring homemade lunch to work three times a week. I used to be really good at this, and then I got not so good at it and started relying on frozen entrees, and I'm just so, so sick of them. Now that the weather's warm again, I can start throwing together simple salads again.

3. Sort through the stuff my mom brought me. Oh, joy - my mom brought me boxes and boxes of stuff that had been sitting in her spare room since I moved out of her, a long time ago. Some of it is stuff that I would never have saved, but she thought I'd want to keep, so now's my chance to get rid of it. Muah hahaha.

4. Get back into the yoga home practice habit. I fell out of this due to injury and travel, but I'd like to pick it up again. I always feel better when I do it on a regular basis, not to mention that I see faster improvements in my flexibility and strength!

5. Break out and USE the super handy-dandy house maintenance and cleaning schedule that I created and stuck on a shelf. I spent so much time and effort putting this thing together, and it's frankly sat on a shelf since we moved into our house. Time to USE it!
