I slept in and after waking up, did a few poses of yoga, used it as a means to stretch my body and sweat mildly. Then, I fixed things around my house with a help of PT. While he was installing the washing machine for me, I cleaned the first floor and the kitchen.
At lunch time, I went out for lunch with my sister, Phun and Py. Then, we let them ride the kid cart around Tesco before bring them to play at the playport. After that, we went to a Chinese temple to feed the fish and walked around taking photos with them. Coming back home in the afternoon, I went to the vegetable garden and started watering the plants..
It was fun and joyful Saturday spent with my family.. Now I am ready for July! 11 months ago

June has been a crazy month. It has been one that has strongly illustrated the idea that ‘life happens when youre making other plans’. So many of my friends are facing massive changes/problems in their lives and it can be a bit hard to keep up at times. When my own housemate problems were over i went to a wine night only to have so many new friends speak of new big scary ones.
Now more then ever, when so many of my friends are in the real world, i have to focus on my goals, university, publication and buta and pueces otherwise theyll slip away. I was rewarded by the goals i achieved, i alwaysa have been, i just need to continue to plod along.

Carrying over catching up with myself into July (and probably the rest of forever, haha)
I was able to get my old computer working and get the files saved to the internet so I don’t have to have any certain computer to work on them. Very very thankful for that.
Deep cleaning my room later on today.
I did all my calculations, which turned out well. yay.
This goal definitely gave some good motivation. 11 months ago
I got caught up with the help of a rent advance from brother.
I’m forging ahead by knowing that I do have some financial goals. I will keep pushing for clients and then set up to save toward those goals. 11 months ago
It was enough for me to stay afloat this month. Of course, I forged ahead as much as I could and got caught up on as many things as seemed worth it. Looking over the list I had at the beginning of the month, let’s see how much got done:
I need to catch up on:
-Decluttering √ (as best as could be before moving)
-Letters & Phonecalls √ (pretty good here!)
-Thank you notes √ (yah, I think so!)
-One Little Word (no…)
-Dry cleaning √
In June we will be moving so I’ll be forging ahead with:
-Packing and moving √ (yes!)
-Saying good-bye here √
-Unpacking and setting up our home √
-Becoming residents (registering car, new licenses, etc.) √
-Buying furniture & rugs (This is a constant work in progress. The money is stopping us in our tracks while we recover from the other expenditures.)
-Sending “We’ve moved!” cards (Not yet)
-Finding a job (Hrmmmm…)
-Making necessary payments √
-Setting up what we can of a garden and compost pile √ (Got the compost bin up; just need to get the carbon ratios enough before we can pile on the green stuff… Holding off on the garden plan…kinda need a hose and some dirt first.) 11 months ago
This was my list in the beginning of this month:

I don’t want to rate my progress of the past month in any way, because I think I did rather well. It’s been challenging most of the time and I sure could have done better with a few things, but I’m quite proud of myself.
Now, let’s get this next month started! 11 months ago
While I didn’t get quite as caught up as I’d hoped, I put in an excellent effort and am now a lot closer behind myself than I was at the start of the month.
As for my forging ahead goals, I kicked glorious ass on both decluttering and the memorial project (which I just registered my 100th book for).
Somewhere between catching up and forging ahead sits the present, where I’m feeling good. Feeling motivated. Feeling ready for July bootcamp. 11 months ago
