Where has everyone gone this week?

I haven't been home in about a week and a half, and with limited access to internet. My goals and the updating thereof have gone wonky.


June
1. Bills to be paid: credit card (300) and tuition deposit (200).
2. Household stuff: finish hanging up/putting away my clothes; find something for me to live in in the yard (either a yurt or a trailer); go through furniture, etc, and decide what to keep and what to sell.
3. Read 3 of my library books.
4. Get Katz Meow off the ground. (Restaurant opening on Canada Day. I'm inventory manager/barista. OMG can we even DO this?)
5. Finish losing 20 pounds: goal 292.

July
1. Debts to be paid: 240 to my ex before the 15th; 200 to my credit card; 100 to my dad.  .66
2. Lose 20 pounds: goal 280. -I seriously don't know how this happened, but I'm choosing to believe my friend's probably-broken scale.
3. Learning: finish my TEFL course; read 6 books from library and renew as needed. .50
4. Home life: unpack some stuff and get it integrated into my 'house'/mom's house; continue to cull things out of my life; don't strangle cat. - All of this is impossible to do when I'm not at home, so it's getting put off till August.
5. Projects: make major headway on the knit baby blanket; paint the kitchen; build shed in the yard (this means getting someone big and burly (whatever gender) to come and get rid of the spiders currently nesting in the box).  .33

August
1. Debts to be paid: 200 to credit card; 400 to dad. GOAL CHANGE:  Learning and home life: finish TEFL course; build sheds for stuff; get patio finished before birthday; get ready to move -- ie, unpack stuff from garage, go through, decide what's coming to Nanaimo.
2. Personal joy: send off registration and money for Pirates and Fairies; plan for new tattoo. 
3. Buy myself a netbook.
4. Projects: finish baby blanket; start knitting hat; finish crochet scrabble tile bag.
5. Buy books for school ahead of time, online and cheap.

September
1. School: get off on the right foot this semester; don't become bogged down with social life; don't audition for any plays.
2. Religion/spirituality: make a commitment to attend all the public temple rituals; become more active in coven; continue to be more involved in my religious life even though school has started.
3. Get mom a puppy. (Though I'm putting this in September it may happen in August; not a super-strict timeline on this.) 1.0
4. Look into joining/starting a club other than Satyr players, Immersion, or Anthropology.
5. Just stay healthy.

General/anytime goals

1. Get a WoW character up to lvl 70 and get WotLK. (Silly, I know, but it's something I can do and I want to see WotLK content before Cataclysm comes out.) -- almost there! level 69! Need to buy WotLK, which would be easy if my credit card were, I don't know, still with me.
2. Finish watching season 1 of Sailor Moon.
3. Find back external harddrive and move a bunch of files to it so I have room on my computer again.
4. Keep up with the healthy lifestyle I've been doing.  - Travelling has WRECKED this. Arg.
5. Get my guitar fixed and retuned and start to play again.  -Where is the damn thing??


Goals: 25
Accomplished: 6.32

25.28% completed.

Time to check in, I guess.

Religion:
-Read Culture of Egypt (John Wilson) -In progress. Almost done.
-Read The Egyptians
-Celebrate Wep Ronpet in some fashion -This is next week. Making plans for it this week.

Health:
-Continue with veggie based diet. -so far, so good.
-Don't eat out unless emergency. -hit and miss.

Everything else:
-Try to maintain positive attitude. -so far, so good.
-Reconnect with s.o. -this is going over really well.

So lots of things are working their way there. Though I can't cross anything off yet.

Work and Other Icky Grown-Up Stuff

Writing and Other Creativity
1.  Dedicate at least one hour per week to current WIP -- Did so yesterday, lets see if I can keep it up

6.  Draw something and maybe try to break out the paints again -- Not yet
7.  Try a new recipe at least once every two weeks -- I may try a new one on Sunday when I actually have time to cook

Online Stuff
1.  Update blogs on a semi-regular basis -- sort of did it
2.  Decide whether or not I should create those two other blogs I've been meaning to start -- DONE!
3.  Catch up on the blogs I currently follow -- DONE!
4.  Catch up on the webcomics that I use to read -- Errrrmmmm....

Mental Health
1.  Read at least three books for the sheer pleasure of reading -- DONE!  All I got is half a book left and I should finish it either today or tomorrow
2.  Buy one season of any TV show I always wanted to watch but never did -- DONE!
3.  Visit Colonial Williamsburg -- Heat index over 100.  I think I'll wait until September for this one
4.  Visit at least one location thought to be haunted -- Not unless my place of employment is haunted
5.  Do not murder anyone -- Not yet, but those people sure do push my buttons.....

Total goals: 20

Books/Words:
1. Purchase a copy of the Táin Bó Cúailnge.

Finances, Work, and Other Responsible Adult Stuff:
1. Reduce debt by 5%. - Work in progress?
2. Find a new job.  - Work in progress. There's a listing for an area employer that is known for having great benefits and embracing diversity in its staff (read: not like current place).  I'm qualified, it's exactly the kind of work I want, and the lowest end of the starting pay is 25% more than what I currently make.  Fingers crossed, candles lit, prayers said. 
3. Do all the things needed to keep car another year -  get inspection, make any necessary repairs, renew tags, and pay taxes. - Still waiting for the tax bill.
4. Limit hours at day job to a maximum of 50 per week.  - Accomplished for this week, barely.  Next week, I'm scheduled for 55 hours. bloody hell.

What I'd Rather Be Doing- The Online Shops:
1. Organize and inventory all completed pieces for sale. - Seriously, not even close to starting this.
2. Reach minimum sales goal for this quarter. - Have met 20% of the goal.
3. Post at least five items per week. - Working on this later today.
4. Blog or other marketing at least once per week. - Still need to do this today.

Creative, Hobby, and Other Happy Stuff:
1. Dedicate at least one hour per week to the garden.- Still WIP. 
2. Create at least 10 new things - jewelry, poetry, sewing, etc.- Done!
3. Blogging Goals: daily posts to personal blog, weekly posts to all other blogs. - WIP.
4. Outline novel for NaNo 2010. -I am now fairly certain about the basic plot and have started to work on character sketches.

Health and Well-Being:
1. Hit 'milestone' weight by losing 10.5 pounds. -Work in progress.
2. Go on three long hikes. - Nothing yet.
3. Continue to rebuild personal defenses.  - Work in progress.
4. Schedule eye exam. - Done.

Prodigal Pagan's To-Do List:
1. Update altar for summer. - Done. 
2. Do a solstice celebration ritual. - Done!
3. Add a dozen entries to personal herbal site. - Nothing yet.
4. Post three new Path Forging entries. - Two down.
5. Make personal incense blend. - Done!

All Work and No Play- Fun Stuff:
1. Read three books for the sheer pleasure of reading. -Done!  Just finished the last one.
2. Go to the local Highland Games.  -Fail, didn't go.
3. Start planning for Thanksgiving getaway.  -Putting this off until later in the season. Depends on budget and what the family want to do.
4. Make time for being social... offline.  -Accomplished, sort of.  Spent a lot of time talking to friends and family because of bad news about health of two family members and my best guy pal.  It wasn't a good week.
