Better late than never

Wow could this month got any crazier?
Probably. I must remember to not ask myself that question if I really don't want the answer. Hahaha

Rob and I had a fantastic mini holiday!!
We were only gone 3 days but oh how great it was to recharge together.
Especially since after that it got even busier around here.

I promise, I pinky swear that I will catch you up on that soon. In the meantime I will let you know how my 3 in 30 went this month.

1. Work on me.
This was a hit and miss. I never worked out at all, but I did drink water every day. As for everything else I did do some and not some other things. I did my bible study, just not everyday. Same with the prayer journal.
I believe I am going to carry this one through to September.

2. The stuff for my nieces wedding.
Well this I definitely finished. The quilt looks amazing. All the baking was done and I even make some table runners for her at last minute. It was a crazy busy week and weekend but oh what a wonderful day. The wedding was exactly tailored made for them and I know God definitely had His hand in it!
In fact I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with both my parents and all my siblings.
The top. Sorry about the terrible picture quality. Taken off my phone at midnight when I finally finished the quilt 

The back. This quilt was awesome. They hung it up by the front entrance and everyone signed it like a guest register. Such a cool idea my niece had.

3. Getting ready for our next journey.
Well this is kinda crazy. I am partially done school scheduling but will be completely done by Monday. I have to be she will be starting back on Tuesday. :)
I have sold a pile of cookie dough and hoping to sell a pile more.

Now this is where the crazy starts. For 3 weeks in September we will be having another young lady some and stay with us. This is a trial run and we will see what happens after that.

Also when hubby and I went on our holiday we toured around central Saskatchewan. Once we got home we started to look at some of the places on line and realized that we could totally move there. So now we are seeing what is next.

So this means the adoption is being put on hold until we finalize our plans either way. The second that we commit to moving(if that is what we chose) we will have to reapply to the Saskatchewan government and start the process over again. The good news is that within a week we will have made the decision one way or the other. I think no matter what you will see us there within 3-4 years.

So that is my crazy month in a nutshell.

As far as my September goals? Well...

1. Work on myself.
This I must do. Starting Tuesday, the bible study group that I am with is doing the B90, I have done this once already so I am going to attempt doing it chronologically. Please pray that one is going to be a toughie.
I also know that I am going to need to make sure that I am taking care of myself during this transition month.

2. Get ready for winter.
Clean up the yard, clean up the house, do the regular stuff. I would also like to start getting rid of some junk that we have been hanging onto for far too long. Especially since we are hoping to move I really need to declutter.

3. I am leaving this one open.
I have a feeling this is going to be another crazy month and I am wanting to make sure that I am not feeling overwhelmed by needing another goal. If we move I will be busy with all the packing, transferring, trying to get Sarah into another dance school, etc. You get the picture. :D

I am linking up today with Aurie.
Please take a moment and hop over. Also take some time and really think how having these goals can really help you. This 3 in 30 has been great for me. I have done stuff that I was wanting to do for a long time and was procrastinating. Maybe this fall is the perfect time for you to join as well.
