Update on Goals

Since we are now officially half way through the year I thought it might be appropriate to do a update on my goals.  So here goes:

1. Visit more with my girlfriends. Shoot for once a month.  I have been keeping up with this one pretty well over all I think.
2. Invite friends over for dinner or out to dinner. Shoot for every other month. We have done this so far.
3. Be more mindful of the amount of time kids are using the computer. I am seriously failing at this one I have to admit!
4. Be more mindful of my own computer time. Probably failing at this one also :(
5. Read with Lilly more I think we are doing well with this!
6. Ask for help from everyone in my family more when I am feeling overwhelmed this one is a learning process :)
