Week 4 Update

Hello friends!  I can’t believe this is the 4th update.  On Friday 11/12, I’ll be a month into this challenge.  I feel pretty good about what I’ve already accomplished and surprisingly I thought that I would dread the blog, but it’s what I’m enjoying the most.  So grab a glass of wine and let’s talk some business, shall we (seriously, if I had my own business, instead of serving coffee and pastries, we’d have wine and cheese!)

#8 Spend a day volunteering at either Gloucester County/Camden County Animal Shelter – so I never heard back from the Camden County Animal Shelter 😦 With the holidays coming up, I don’t have a lot of time available, so I’m going to shelve this project until after the New Year.  For anyone who is interested in volunteering, click these  links:  Animal Welfare Association, Camden County Animal Shelter, Gloucester County Animal Shelter

#13 Keep a swear jar for 2 weeks.  Every time I curse, I deposit$.25 and will donate the amount to a charity of my choosing (I’m thinking if I do this @ Christmas, I will buy toys for the ‘Toys for Tots’ program) – my company recently contacted Marine Toys for Tots program.  I started this on Monday 11/8/10 and I decided that this would be an appropriate time. I hope to raise some money  and I’m encouraging my co-workers to join in as well (I’m not actually proud of my foul-mouthed ways, but at least I’m putting my money where my mouth is…ok, bad cliché).

#16 Refinish a piece of used furniture for the spare bedroom  – still in process. This just reminds me of the ghost of home improvement projects of the past – I love the demolition part, but I struggle to finish…maybe it’s because I thrive on deadlines (see #60 below) – anyone else like that?

#60 Paint Dining Room – I tend to stress myself out around the holidays and almost always have a need to paint or do home improvement projects with a very limited time frame (which drives Eddie nuts).  I have 3 colors on my dining room wall which I’m studying to see in different light, etc. This is on the slate for completion next weekend and is a “high priority item” since I’m hosting a small Thanksgiving this year.

#62 Give up social networking for 1 week – I have not been on Facebook since Wednesday 11/3/10 @ 12:00pm.  The only peep you have heard out of me is a blog post, since it’s auto linked to my profile (so I’m not counting that).  My self-imposed facebook ban hasn’t been that bad and I actually did some reading and caught up on my DVR!

Hope you have a fantastic week!  Xoxo!

    • Thanks Steph. It does feel good to ‘check things off the list’. I will admit at times it’s tough to come up with a list, but start jotting things down as you think of them. Just make sure you hold yourself accountable! Good luck!
