Behind-The-Blogger Day 8… A few goals

Posted on: April 20, 2011

Prompt | Short term goals for this month and why

Well, this month is almost over, but I’ll set some goals for the next 30 days. Initially when reading this I thought of my to-do list as my “goals” but then re-thought it. A true goal. A change in my self. So, I am going to answer both ways.

Something that I need to be more mindful of, and thus it has become a goal, is being less snappy at my husband. I want to count to 3 before asking him to do something, as if he should have read my mind and already have completed the task just as I wanted it done.  I want to take a deep breath and think through my tone. My hubby is truly the most incredible man in the universe (I know, lots of you might argue and say your hubby is the most incredible… lets just agree to disagree for now. 🙂 ) Hubby works hard all day long, spends his little free time playing with and snuggling my daughter, and then spends the non existent time he has left, nurturing our relationship and being a great best friend to me. He deserves for me to show him respect even when I am pooped out and on my final straw. So, because of that. My personal goal for the next 30 days is to stop the bad habit I have found myself in, and stop snapping at my hubby. (I love you honey! Please make sure I stick to this! 🙂 )

For the tactical goals I am going to reference my Successful Year post which is actually a good thing. Reminds me of what I am setting out to accomplish. I am picking three that don’t seem hard or terribly time consuming, but yet they are nagging me to get finished, and have been on the list for far too long!

I am 90% done with getting photo books set up and ordered. I just need to do some final touches and get them ordered. This must happen in the next 30 days. I want to give some away as gifts too.

I also need to back up all the pics on my iPhone. I am increasingly panicked that something will happen to my phone and I will lose them. 😦

Hang pictures up in the living room and Tikka’s bedroom… our house doesn’t look finished with nothing hanging on the walls and we have lived there for almost a year!

Wish me luck! What are your short term goals?
