Updating My Goals, and Sneaking Back into the Blogosphere

I know... I've been MIA. I am not great with blog updates. Mostly because I simply have nothing to say. Things have been pretty darn depressing around here, but I'm expecting that any minute they'll get better, lol. I've been expecting this for the last couple of years... so it's got to happen soon, right?

I decided that at the very least I should update some of my goals, since I am still working on most of them :D

1. Lose 25 pounds: I'm glad I'm starting with this one, because I have been kicking butt on this goal. In the last weekish, while AF has been here, things have been up and down, but the week before that I had a couple incredible weigh-ins, and I'm sticking to those. 23 pounds down since last year at this time!! Woo hoo!! In honor of that good news, I'm putting my weight loss ticker back up on my blog, just to make myself feel good. haha.

2. Read 25 books: I'm kind of sucking at this, but I'm planning on getting back on track, especially since it's summer, and my job isn't going to involve a lot of planning. I think I've read about 10. I need to get back to Healing Mind, Healthy Woman (sent to me by the fabulous Melissa over at Banking On It). I know it's going to be really good, but I need to get back to actually reading it... which might mean dealing with my issues... ahhh!

3. Take my GREs and apply for a Masters program: nopedy nope nope

4. Get and stay pregnant: no, you have not missed that post... no treatments in site.

5. Get myself back to church: no... I haven't had the drive I know I should to get back there. I finished up that bible study, but haven't gotten back into another :(

(this goal update is actually making me more depressed lol)

6. Infertility Awareness: I haven't made the huge advances I'd like to, but I'm definitely out there talking about it, making people aware of the issues, so that's a plus.

7. Start my book: no, not yet, but I am taking the advice from the other Melissa over at Stirrup Queens, who is doing a little blog series about being published :D


8. Become a little more domestic (haha): Okay, so I am now the proud owner of an amazing garden. I planted it a couple months ago, and it is just amazing!! I will post pictures soonish. Also, along with the occasional crochet order, I JUST (JUSSSTTT) fished my mom's sewing machine out of our garage (apparently it was living in our garage with a bunch of her other stuff, who knew) and I am excited to make an apron, or a quilt, or some other crafty crap. I swear, not being able to fulfill my goal of motherhood has made me want to do hells of other woman stuff. It's disturbing.

Well, I actually have a couple other things I think I want to write about, but I don't want this post to be insanely long and (more) boring, so I'll stop here for now. Thanks to those of you who are still reading!!

Byeee Lovelies :D
