Monthly Goals: Linky Party

WOW!  That was a fun giveaway!  Thanks again to all who donated their products!  If you have not received your email I will catch up on them later today :)

I recently met by 2013 blogging goal and it had me thinking...which can be scary at times; we often require our students to set goals for themselves, but fail to set them for ourselves.  I created some goals for myself for the month of May and thought you too might want to set some goals for yourself :)

Personal:  I REALLY need to cut back on my spending this month and it is IMPOSSIBLE to go into Walmart and come out with ONE item!  Just hope I can get my hubby to set the same goal :)

Health:  Since my back injury I haven't visited the gym.  I did start walking to ease back into working out and feel I might be ready to hit the gym again.  I am just really scared of injuring myself again.

Blogging:  I NEED to reread my post before posting them.  Often I will go back and read a post and think, "WOW! What was I doing while typing that!?!"  I apologize for past misspellings, run on sentences, and random mistakes.

School:  We are almost out for summer and our state testing takes place this month.  With all the stress and chaos my goal is to at least grade papers at school and NOT bring them home.

Fun: We are having some beautiful spring weather, FINALLY, and I would like to spend more time outside in it with my boys.  They LIVE outside!  I need to get better at putting away technology and spend more time with them, they grow up way too fast!

What are your goals for the month of May?
Use the image below to post your goals and link up :)

For the Fun goal, set a goal for something fun to do; crafts, trip, movie, etc.

For linking up to my Monthly Goal Party I will use to choose TWO winners.  The winners will receive any item from my TpT store.  Set those goals and link up!

  17. I love your Walmart goal, I need the same goal but for Target it is my black hole. I go in and spend over an hour and come out with way too many things I didn't really need.
