By Request Only

I've been asked to post something by my cousin, Tracy. I'm not one to disappoint, and I'll be the first to admit I've been neglecting Bloggy lately. (Sorry, Bloggy, I'll try to think of a better name for you later.) My goal was to get back to posting daily over the summer, but I'm teaching summer school. So Tracy may have to wait a couple weeks for her regular scheduled blogging.

I've decided to make some Summer Goals, so here they are Internet. It's your job to hold me accountable, so if I don't achieve them, I'm blaming you; it can't be my fault. You were supposed to hold me accountable. Sure, I might be the one choosing to watch yet another episode of the Cake Boss marathon or getting my tan on for the 7th day that week, but where were you? Yeah, that's what I thought.

1. Get my office in order. I don't really use my office much except when I need to print things, but it is in dire need of some TLC. It's fairly organized, but I need to get the closet and bottom drawer of the credenza into shape. I seriously don't even know what is in the closet, but I'm pretty sure nothing else can fit.

2. Read all the Truman Nominees. (A middle school literary award) I'm becoming a librarian next year, so I feel like it would be beneficial to read some teen books before I officially begin, and I can complete this one pool side! That's my kind of goal.

3. Get on the weight loss train. I plan to blog more about this. Maybe I'll make it tomorrow's topic....well, I might wait until Monday. :) Possibly after the 4th of July. I wouldn't want to miss out on Aunt Michelle's cheesy potatoes!

4. Stay on top of my laundry. I loathe laundry. If it were up to me, I would just buy all new clothes every week, but I don't have a money tree in my back yard, so I'm forced to do laundry. I need to be better about doing it on a regular basis. This might be a silly goal, but if you knew my distaste for laundry or opened my closet, you'd understand.

5. Work on my 50 in 500. I'm thinking numbers 17, 22, 23, 29, 38, 39, 40, 41, 45 and 49. If you actually open the link and figure out the exact goals I listed, you deserve to be my blog reader of the month!

Ready, Set, Goal! Oh and a photo since they make everything better....kind of like bananas according to my cousin, Eva.



  1. So I did #5 and do I get extra credit if I knew what some of those #s were before I opened it? :) Seriously #45? If we ever find time to hang out again we can complete that for you. I don't have it but I'll watch it with you. And #49 would be so much fun!!

  2. hold. on.

    you haven't seen what about bob?! seriously?! tell me you're kidding.

  3. Hey Lady!
    Not sure you remember me but we lived on the same floor in Freddy ... Susie B. Anyway, I LOVE your blog and check it often. Your 50 in 500 things is AWESOME! I loved reading your list. Your house is super cute and you make all your projects seem like nothing, I love it! Thanks for sharing so much about you with us! You will kick some serious booty in your weight-loss journey, although I think you are beautiful now! And remember, its the inside that counts the most and from what I remember (and can still get from your blog) your insides are pretty awesome!
    Keep blogging! :)

  4. Susie, I totally remember you!!! How can I forget my Freddy girls? Thanks for the encouragement!! Hope all is well. :)
