Go & Do | May

1.  First on the list of goals: make some serious effort when it comes to getting our back yard into shape.  We've got loads to do!  None of it will get done if I don't hit the ground running, so that is my main focus for this month.  I have plans to get the landscape fabric and mulch down in one stretch of our backyard flower bed over the weekend.  Jordan and I have been working hard to get the dandelions under control in both the front and back yard which has been quite the task.  Dandelions are everywhere!  They are trying to take over, but Jordan and I are not giving up without a fight!  I'm excited to get to do up a few more planters to disperse through the flowerbeds in both the front and the back.  That should help add some beautiful color to the yard, which is my absolute favorite!!  I best be getting my gardening gloves on and get busy.

2.  Punctuality is going to be my second goal for this month.  I'm not sure if it's that I'm just plain tired or lazy, but whatever the case, I need some improvement and attention in this area.  So, no matter what time I go to bed, I need to be up and have myself completely ready for the day (i.e. dressed, hair done, make-up on) before 6:45 a.m. so that I can get the kids ready to go and out the door.  I guess I can say goodbye to my snooze button.  I'm not going to have much room for hitting that button and squeezing in a few more z's.

3.  This last goal is not really a goal, but more of a desire.  See, my sweet husband gave me an iPad for Mother's Day.  He's pretty amazing.  He worked his tail off for the last month working on side jobs to enable himself to get it for me.  That right there is a whole lot of selflessness.  He's so awesome.  Anyway, now that I have this new toy, I want to get my phone, iPad, and laptop all synced so that I can feel organized in the digital realm.  That includes photo management and backup, document storage and organization, and all else that has anything to do with syncing three digital devices.  I don't know about you, but I have found myself feeling the same way about a dirty house as I do about my digital information organization: it drives me absolutely crazy!  It shouldn't be that big of a deal, but it is to me.  I like to feel organized; I like having things in their place.  With the constant generation of photos and documents, things can get out of whack pretty fast, which is why I need a consistent system or protocol for handing all my digital stuff.
