August Schmaugust

   Today, I am going to tell you about our Family Goals for August.  When we welcomed a new month, the thought just kind of occurred to me, "Hey- we should start setting some goals each month."  I think this would be a cute family tradition when we have kids and a pretty fun blog series/link-up, to boot...if I were ever feeling ambitious enough.  Yikes.

     I hesitated to post these, lest I sound all, "We're perfect and adorable and these are our goals this month." However, seeing as how one of our goals involves NOT eating dinner on the dusty coffee table while watching Pawn Stars, I think it's safe to say that the facade/illusion of us being "perfect" and adorable is officially shattered.

My spelling is atrocious tonight.  Sigh.  Here's to trying to be more better.  Or something like that.

Our eating-out budget this month is $75   ($47 spent so far on a meal after Tim's softball game, dessert and sodas while watching a friend perform at open mic night, and a picnic dinner from Subway)  

Pray together everyday  (I give us a B+ for this one so far.  We do this at night and need to find a solution for the nights when I go to bed/fall asleep before Tim does)  

Physical Activity 3x a week (don't ask)  

We will eat at the dining room table 2x a week (This would involve us cleaning off the dining room table first...always a work in progress).  

What are your goals this month?

Love and trying really hard,

While we're on the subject of us not being too terribly perfect, I would file these under "out takes."

Aw I love it :) A great idea/tradition to start! One goal I'd love to accomplish this month is for us to go blueberry picking, but that's been on my to-do list for over a year now or more. So I wouldn't be surprised if that never got accomplished. We'll see. There's also a good chance it's one of those things that sounds dreamy in my head (like camping) but when we actually do it, I realize how over-rated it is. And why it took us so long to do in the first place ;) Here's to setting goals!
