You guys almost had the pleasure of hearing the man behind the blog today.
I tried to get him to write a post because I didn't get to start writing until 10pm, but he plead a great case that he doesn't know how to write, or even read for that matter.
So instead of writing, I allowed him to take 100% control of August's Eight Great Goals and have to say I'm looking forward to what he's outlined for me.
1. Go See Something In Toronto
Cat's out of the bag! I'm heading back to Toronto for two weeks in August. This upcoming week I arrive mid-day Sunday and then the final week of August again, eh?
Last time I was there this is one of the only non selfie/ non food photos I captured. At least the trip made for a decent rant.
2. Have an Entire Week of Blogs Complete By Sunday Night (once)
What! Dan, I did a great job last month doing three blogs - I think he just likes me doing writing on the weekend so that I'm occupied and not whining about the golf addiction mentioned here.
**Also, does he realize that being done writing blogs is different than being done reading blogs? I don't know that he does.
3. Give Thanks Where Thanks are Due
I come home at night each day and feel like all of the work I'm doing is going un-thanked and unappreciated - so I can only imagine how my co-workers feel taking on all of my usual work on top of their own work the past few weeks.
I do thank them, but I probably don't do it nearly enough. I also don't thank Dan nearly enough for all of the things he helps me with at home
4. Don't Say the Word "Hate"
Yeah, this one is solid. I love to say the word 'hate'.
"I hate you", "I hate this", "You hate me", "Holly Hates us", "Everyone hates you". "
I hate ice cream"
It's all in fun and always sarcastic, but saying 'hate' just projects negative energy and life's too good to be living so bad.
5. Get Home Before 7pm on Weeknights
Um, I really hope this means more date nights? And if not more date nights at least more wine nights? Let's discuss.
6. Run During the Work Day
I used to knock out so many miles in my previous job during the actual workday and it made life a lot easier for everyone. I'm not going to get in the same situation I did in July with having 46 miles in the last 6 day - there's got to be a better way to budget my time.
7. Say No
Ha-ha this vine clip below says it all.
Sadly the first things I've already said 'no' to that impact this month are Hood To Coast and Intramural League Softball. Next 'No' needs to be something that means more fun, not less fun.
8. Have Drinks with Friends
This is a no-brainer. I used to do two or three nights out with ladies during the week, even karaoke on weeknights! I just can't party anymore like I used to, but that doesn't mean that I can't meet up for a Happy Hour after work at least once this upcoming month (even with only 14 days in the country).
There you have it. This is what I'm tracking to all month.
When you're ready come get it
