Halfway Through The Year: Checking My 18 in 2018 List

It’s June!  June signals the halfway point of the year. Can you believe we’re there?

Thought I should check in on my list of 18 things I wanted to do this year…

My 18 Items For 2018 Update:

  1. Read (at least) 18 books: I’ve read 9 of them. Plus given myself permission to take one book I just couldn’t make it through off the list!
  2. Lose 18 pounds: Yeah, ongoing struggle with this one.
  3. Get a new kitchen table: Not yet
  4. Guard my heart from negativity and drama (sorry, I know it’s vague): Work in progress
  5. Clean out the basement: Um…should probably get start on this one
  6. Clean out the inside of the computer desk: See number 5
  7. Add another garden area to the front yard: Lots of ideas, might wait until fall and use bulbs
  8. Buy fresh flowers for the table once a month: Doing pretty good with this one

    Grocery store flowers!

  9. Post a Happy Homemaker Monday post every week: Another good one!
  10. Do one thing each month to get ready for next Christmas: I’m still a last-minute shopper
  11. Complete a sugar-free challenge: Did this around lent, need to try again
  12. Join in the monthly weekly Facebook group photography challenges at Live, Snap, LoveNot very good at keeping up with them and definitely not brave enough to post my challenge pictures yet
  13. Go on a fun summer vacation, maybe a return to Colorado or South Dakota: Visited Duluth, Minnesota! Post about our fun trip coming maybe tomorrow or Friday.
  14. Make our house feel like a home again (vague again, I know…): My focus for the rest of the summer
  15. Walk in another 5K: Hoping to find something in the fall
  16. Clean my email inbox out monthly (prefer weekly but I’m being realistic): Been keeping up with this in spurts. After letting it pile up to over 1000 e-mails, I’ve been more inclined to delete things regularly
  17. Get rid of 18 things we don’t love/use each month (4-5 things a week): Falling a bit short
  18. Go on at least 2 nature walks/outdoor bird-watching adventures a month: I thought I’d do better in this category. Need to start actually making plans to do these

Did you make a list of items for the year? Are you making progress?

    Love your list and I could adopt the majority of them if I made one too! Top on my list is more reading (I’ve finally been better) and the getting healthier/weight loss one. Love the idea of a 5k too! You’ll have to come back during the Grandma’s marathon time of year again in the future and we could do that 5k. 🙂

      Oh, that would be fun! As long as we could walk 😉 I’m not much of a runner. Glad you’re finding a bit more time to read. I feel like I go through spurts with is unless I set aside a certain time to do it.
