I know I say this every month, but I sincerely can’t believe it is already July! Wow! I am not complaining, we are getting so close to some super fun vacations, but we also have online classes and fair projects that need some time. Looking back, June was actually a really productive month. First of all, I stopped coughing, so I was able to be more active. Secondly, Keith and I had our little waterfall tour in Cleveland which was wonderful. In fact, we liked getting away on our own so much we decided to book a Disney trip for our anniversary in August. Celebrating 23 years during their 50th anniversary celebration just seems right. Also, we were there for the 25th anniversary birthday cake castle, so we decided we needed some redemption for that…
Without further ado, here is a recap of my June 2022 Goals:
- Add 20 products to my TpT store – I did this! I am up to 80 products and need to start switching gears to get more traffic to my store.
- Write a second insect flex class and a second sewing flex class – I did this, too! I wrote a Slumber Party Sewing Club FLEX Class and a Discovering Insects – Ancient Bugs FLEX Class. They won’t run until August because I need some time to get things ready, but I am super excited to have them written and available.
- Make 5 blog posts, 25 Instagram posts, 25 Facebook posts, and 40 Pinterest pins – This was not a good month for social media and posting on the blog. I got 3 blog posts, 7 Instagram posts, 8 Facebook posts, and no pins. This will be my focus for next month.
- Update Play-Doh listings for TpT to follow copyright guidelines – I finally took care of this!
- An Adventure Date, Create Date, and 2 Family Game Nights – We did the 2 dates, but I am going to have to rethink Family Game Nights. We are not doing well… I am hoping maybe we can play some games on the planes or in the hotels this month when we go on vacation.
- Organize cabinets and shelves in my office, including clearing craft supplies from front room – This is about three quarters of the way done. I have more organizing to do, and I think I need to host a FREE Garage Sale with everything we are getting rid of.
- Reserve the rest of our Seattle tours and tickets – This is done! I am so excited for this trip!
- Make dinner at home at least 16 times – I think we did about 10 dinners at home this month.
- Walk 12 times (cough and energy dependent) – It took until about June 10th to be able to walk without coughing, but I think we got in 10 walks.
- Hike 6 times (cough and energy dependent) – I had to look these up twice, but we did this! Our waterfall tour and Schnormeier Gardens tour helped a lot.
I feel really good about this – I earned a 7.5 out of 10 this month! It’s amazing what feeling good and having a little extra time in my schedule will do for my productivity. As I mention above, this month I am pivoting a little to start driving more traffic to my TpT store. With that in mind, here are my goals for July 2022:
- Add 10 TpT products to my store.
- Write a Sticker Collectors Club class for Outschool.
- Make 4 blog posts, 25 Instagram and Facebook posts, and 31 Pinterest pins.
- Set my Fall schedule for Outschool.
- An Adventure Date, Create Date, and 2 Family Game Nights.
- Finish organizing my classroom and our front room.
- Have a Free Yard Sale with everything we need to give away from organizing efforts.
- Make dinner at home 12 times (this is a stretch with tech week, fair, and vacation all falling this month).
- Walk/work out 15 times (I am starting a new health program this month, and I am hopeful).
- Hike 8 times (we have a few tours and hikes planned in Seattle, so this should be okay).
I am really looking forward to our family vacation this month – it has been almost 6 years since we have taken a true family vacation to somewhere new and 10 years since we have flown anywhere as a family. We are running out of time for these family trips, so I am so glad it is working out. I can’t wait to share the adventure with you in a post later this month! Have you ever been to Seattle? What are some things you loved? What things did you think were over-rated? Let us know in the comments. 🙂
