I feel like I say this every week, but…Wednesday AGAIN? This week has been good, yesterday in particular was super. On Monday, Bobby worked from 8:00 am and didn’t get home till almost 9:30 that night, so he stayed home Tuesday and did some work from home.
He was supposed to have a 2 hour conference call but it ended up getting cancelled, so I drug Bobby along to the grocery store, and to run some errands. (He did do some work on the computer though!) We also went out to lunch and tried this new place called Villa Rosa. It had things like pasta, subs, salads, and pizza.
It was a cute little place, and the tables looked like they had old newspapers on them.
Bobby ordered the pizza of the day which had pretty much everything on it.
I had pasta and chicken with alfredo sauce
After lunch (which just HAPPENED to be right next to Frosting… and it just HAPPENED to be Tuesday, Wedding cake cupcake day…) we had to get dessert.
We all know what I got…
and Bobby got Boston crème pie.
I was so full I saved half of mine to eat later last night and I am so glad I did. I thought about the rest of that cupcake all afternoon and it was just as yummy!
When we found out Bobby’s call was cancelled, we went for an easy 3 mile run. I was feeling sluggish and heavy from lunch, and I ran hard the day before, so we took it slow. It was so nice having him home yesterday!
Ok, so onto my mini goal rewind. If you will remember, I set some mini goals for March and they went so well I decided to make some for April. HERE is the original post.
As a recap, my April mini goals are below, and results are in red:
1.) Finish all 6 weeks of my 6 weeks to 6 pack DVD. It’s important to me to finish this. A lot of times I have good intentions but don’t finish what I start, so I really want to do this (and because I want to buy a new swimsuit for the cruise and won’t let myself unless I finish this thing!) I am happy to report I FINISHED this! Review and pics HERE. I also bought my new swimsuit for the cruise!
2.) TOTALLTY unpack. I need an extra little boost to get the rest of this stuff done so it doesn’t end up hanging around for another month! I spent about an hour yesterday going through the last few boxes. I still have ONE box left, and its really just a box of sheets that needs to go in a closet, not really “unpacked” so I am basically done!
3.) Attitude overhaul. Due to some of the yucky things that did or didn’t happen this month, I feel like I need an attitude overhaul. Instead of focusing on my circumstances, I need to focus on having a better attitude and getting through the trials with grace instead of whining through them and wallowing in self pity. Thinking about how blessed I truly am and focusing on what I could be doing to help others is a good way for me to change my attitude. it’s hard to “find my place” in my “new” life, but I keep praying it will become clear to me! Still don’t feel very clear about finding “my place” here, but I do feel like my attitude was better this month. I still wish I had some direction and answers about some things, but I know that’s not always the way God works.
4.) Get our house sold! Yes…we still haven’t sold our old house yet. This would be a HUGE answer to prayer. I know this one isn’t really in my control, but I pray about it every day, and hopefully this will be our month! This one depresses me the most because I really don’t have control over it. House still not sold. Lowered the price yesterday. Again. Our neighborhood is building new super cheap houses by the dozen it seems, and several of them have sold, making it hard for our “used” home to sell. I really hope May is our month…we have GOT to get rid of this thing! It’s been on the market since September! UGUGUG!
So…not a totally successful month but not totally unsuccessful either. I will be back tomorrow with my May goals. Still thinking on these…..
**I NEED GUEST BLOGGERS! If you are interested in writing a guest post, please please e mail me! I have a few spots left I need to fill for the end of the month!
QOTD: How was April for you? Accomplish any goals you had set for yourself?
Coach Brian says
Just a thought about your “attitude overhaul”:
Ask yourself what you want your “place” to be. What is your ideal world? It may seem silly, but don’t restrict yourself with anything. Just think about what you really want. Then, just go about your business assuming that’s your “place”. If you’ve got that in mind, then it will be easier to see the doors (opportunities) that lead to that place when they open.
I think the Universe/God/whatever you believe tends to work better with specifics.
Matthew 19:26 (New International Version, ©2011)
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
thanks for the tip 🙂
the problem is I dont know what I want to do. LOL! there are severeal different directions I could go, but I just don’t know which is right, for me, for this time in my life. It’s all so confusing!
Bobby’s pizza looks completely amazing… like WOW yummy! And that Frosting place is just the cutest!
Oh girl, I hope your house sells soon! I’ve heard over and over again that April-August is the time to sell ’cause that’s when more people are out looking. Most of our friends (ourselves included) bought during that time too! So hopefully your house will sell soon. 🙂
OMG that cupcake looks to die for, I totally would have gone with wedding cake too, yum. Good luck selling your house, I have no idea what it is like to own a house but I can imagine having two would be super stressful ill keep my fingers crossed for you 🙂
So yea, I totally thought this said “Mini Golf Rewind” so I kept waiting for you to talk about Mini Golf! Hah! WOW. PK.
Great post! Yay for meeting a lot of your April golf…I mean goals! :0))
