Catching Up

Happy belated Valentine’s Day! As you can see we missed posting in here for a few days. I lost some of my motivation and it got extremely cold and snowy here this week. Not super conducive to wanting to get out and about and get things accomplished. That’s not to say I have had zero success since my last post.

Afternoon Pick Up

When I pulled in the garage yesterday immediately after work, I wanted to fall into my old habits right away. It was dreary and overcast. The air outside had a chill to it. I had committed myself to walking my dogs as soon as I got home, but in that moment I thought to myself, “Nah we can wait until tomorrow.”

Lazy Sunday

Lately I’ve been working all day on the weekends, both Saturday and Sunday, so I haven’t had a lot of down time. I ended up taking today off from my extra job though, so I was able to just kind of enjoy the day. A cold front was supposed to move through the area this afternoon, so I took Jack and Joey (my cocker spaniel) out to a lake to get some exercise. I enjoy taking them out there. Sometimes we go on the hiking trails that are part of the state park, but in the winter when no one is around, we typically just walk around the abandoned campground areas.

2020 Goals

I’ve always created some goals or resolutions every year around New Year’s Day. However, I have often abandoned these after just a few short weeks, or even days.

Seeing that I was capable of focusing on a goal and actually achieve it has inspired me to continue that trend for 2020. So here’s what I want to accomplish this year.

Welcome to my blog! I’ve always wanted to write a blog, so for 2020 I have challenged myself to spend the next year writing this blog. I’ve always flirted with the idea of having a blog and have even went so far as to set one up one or twice. However, I’ve never actually done anything much with it. Rather than just continue to flirt with the idea, I went ahead and decided it was time to do it. It’s one of many ambitious goals I have for myself in 2020. The theme of my blog is going to be about my attempts and progress at achieving my goals I’ve set out for myself. If you’re interested in following along on my journey, I encourage you to become a subscriber and add me on social media to stay updated with my latest posts.
