I can’t believe we’re already halfway through 2017. School is over for the summer. We are two months away from hockey starting up again. Don’t get me wrong, I am not wishing away the next two months. In fact, I’m very much looking forward to this summer. There is a lot to do and the two months is going to pass quickly. It always does. So some July goals need to be set to ensure that I get even some of it done.
Now, keep in mind I have been couch bound for four days now. So this list is probably overly ambitious and there’s a good chance I won’t get to at least one of the house related items on the list.
But couch bound has a way of making me want to do all.the.things. Hence the painting and the closets. I did restrain myself because I could have added the kitchen/living room and the basement to the list of rooms to paint. And since I can’t run or workout until the end of July, I’ll focus on what I eat for the time being. So water and tracking calories again. According to the surgeon, obesity increases the likelihood of hernia reoccurrence.
And I do not relish the idea of doing this again. So MFP and water.
As I have mentioned before, there are quite a few things I want to do around the house this summer, so I’ll start with the boy bedrooms and the closets and see how I’m feeling after that.
The six books I have on the list are to get me through the next week and a half. In the last four days I have read two books, watched 12 episodes of Jane the Virgin and caught up on about three months of missed sleep. So that likely won’t be much of a problem for me.
Now that summer break has started, the boys are anxious to get out to the cottage. The weather today isn’t cottage weather, but we’ll be out there soon. That will also help with the reading goal. Additionally with most of my boys out of the house all summer, and me at work, I have the week nights mostly to myself. I should be able to do a good solid clean and organize in before we get through August. This sets us up well for the fall when life gets really busy again. It’s almost like starting with a clean slate again.
But first, I need to get back up to speed and fully healed.
Here’s hoping I don’t lose my mind on the couch in the meantime.
See you at the rink
