Midway Point on 30 for 30 Goals

So I have been avoiding updating my 30 for 30 goal list for quite some time. Mostly because I have been busy but also because I don't want to face the reality that I am not doing most of them. I wish I were better at goal keeping than I am. *Sigh* But here it goes, my 6 month mark.

  1. Run a 5K. 
  2. Get a massage. 
  3. Publish a second Bible study.
  4. Take Philip to a museum.
  5. Read and work through the Greek of one New Testament book. (Started but haven't finished.)
  6. Take a trip to visit friends outside of Birmingham. (Will mark this one off with the next two weekends!)
  7. Read Lord of the Rings. (Of all my goals, this one I am working on diligently. I am almost done with the second book, Two Towers, and will be on to the last book about the Return of the King. Can't wait to finish; I may even blog about it!)
  8. Tell someone new about Jesus.
  9. Lose one pant size. (Of all goals, this one I am actually going in the wrong direction!)
  10. Speak at an event, retreat or conference.
  11. Blog regularly. (Fail.)
  12. Learn to sew.
  13. Go on a weekend "date" trip with my husband.
  14. Finish mine and Osvaldo's wedding scrapbook.
  15. Consistently update Philip's baby book and scrapbook his first year.
  16. Have an international over to our home for dinner. (Does my Father-in-law count??)
  17. Do a jigsaw puzzle.
  18. Paint one room of my house.
  19. Take a trip with my Supper Club friends. (Thanks to my friend Kaylie for getting married, we went to the beach for a girls trip prior to the big day!)
  20. Go to a college or professional football game.
  21. Go to some place new that I've never been before. (We went to Pine Island in Florida this summer.)
  22. Learn Spanish.
  23. Volunteer with a ministry in town.
  24. Play Settlers often with friends and husband. (Of all goals, this one should happen more often as it is one of our favorite things to do!)
  25. Make a new friend.
  26. Get out of debt.
  27. Take lots and lots of pictures of Philip.
  28. Teach Philip a new truth about God.
  29. Give lots of kisses and hugs to my husband and son.
  30. Have a big 30th party -- which is up to my husband.


Well, I guess I've crossed off more on my list than I realized! Thankful for another year of life to serve God and to spend time with family. I have 6 months to finish the rest of my goals now! I need you to cheer me on blogging community!
