here is a quick update..

#6:
i’ve been trying to simplify my life. and organize. all at the same time. so a of right now, i am working on my 5th bag of stuff to donate to charity.

#7:
while i have yet to buy an address book… i have updated my contact info in outlook on my computer. so, when i actually get a book to write all this stuff in, it will be an easy task to complete.

#13:
i have done a pretty damn good job of organizing some pictures on my computer. and that makes me very happy. i have a GILLION pictures, so i feel like this is a project i would love to finish soon. i’m sick of organizing pics. i just want them organized, printed out and then put in photo albums once and for all. but i still have a little while to go.

#18:
i’ve eaten at another new-to-me restaurant. a couple weeks ago me and michaela went to a restaurant we’ve both been wanting to check out: temple. it was nice. i wasn’t head over heels for the food…but it was pretty good. the atmosphere however was incredible! it had private booths and candles hanging from the ceiling instead of lights. i loved it.

#20:
so obviously i didn’t go camping this month, or i would have written about it. so i took that out of italics. there’s always next summer.

#24:
for part of my soon to be sister-in-laws bachelorette party, we’re taking her to a nearby vineyard for a tasting in two weeks. which is super exciting because it is one of the vineyards in the tour i want to do for goal #24 yay! more on this later.

#29:
my one new to me place per month for july will be a bar called the belmont. its got a lot of character. dark wood, low ceilings, lots of leather and a dim atmosphere. i might have made is sound creepy, but its actually rather chill.

#47:
yeah, not much to say. i have been crazy busy preparing for my brother’s wedding, and the time capsule project is totally falling behind. i don’t want to give up on this project though, because i really want to get this done. so, hmm. i don’t know what to do about it, but i am sure i will figure it out.

#63:
yesterday was my 30th weekly journal entry…at least i can keep up with something.

#66:
just finished my 135th grace in small things entry. i am kicking ass on those entries.

#70:
i’ve finished another book: “if i had my life to live over/i would pick more daisies” a compilation of stories and poetry about being a girl or woman at all stages of life. it was rather beautiful. the title is something that really motivates me. maybe i should ruminate on that and write something of my own. the only thing is…i really need to recount the books i own. i can’t remember and i’ve donated some. so its time for a recount.

#85:
i accidentally completed another goal without expecting to. while i am considering it complete, i didn’t bold it on the side just to leave it open again. i dove in my friends swimming pool, but i didn’t do any of my wild dives i used to do because it wasn’t super safe. ha. number 1, i had been drinking and number 2, while the diving board is obviously in the deep end- i’m sure its not as deep as a college pool. so item completed, but hopefully i will still make it somewhere i can really do some wild dives.

#88
ugh. yes, still kicking my ass and paying off those credit cards. and yes, still kicking myself in the ass for even having any debt to begin with.
