A new school year brings...

So my little cutie has been back in school for a week now.  The first week is always the hardest, especially with being at a new school.  Moving hasn't been easy on any of us this time.  Cutie is struggling with leaving friends and family (my hubby and I aren't living together because of his new job).  And she's having a hard time making new friends, but I know she'll be fine.

Amazingly, she hopped off the bus all last week in a happy mood, which is better than it was at her last school.  While she misses her friends, her new school is a great fit.  I am excited about the opportunities she is getting at this new school.

Little man and I are adjusting to being at home by ourselves again.  I still have a list a mile long of things I need to get done, but it is nice to have just him at home right now.  Don't get me wrong.  I love when Cutie is home, but they fight, like any siblings do and when you are the only parent at home all day and all night, it is a difficult thing.

Okay, I really didn't come here for a pity party!

Now for a bit of a check in on my goals... August got away from me!  It didn't help that we visited my hubby in DC for a few days and it took us a week to get back here from my parents' summer home in MI.

So, here's how my August has gone.  I'm going to be completely real and honest.  We were in MI until Aug 6, when we drove to DC.  Spent several days in DC and got back home Aug 13.  Cutie started school Aug 18, so the first few days we got back were spent getting her ready.  Plus, meet her teacher night was Aug 15.  Then, my mom left this past Sat.  So last week was spent running a whole mess of errands!

So where does that leave me with my goals?  I fell short.  It's not that I didn't work, I started to get the ball rolling here.  I've handed out business cards, made new contacts.  So it is a step in the right direction.  This week, the last week of August, I will be setting myself up for a FANTASTIC September.  I am still setting up my systems and trying to figure out what my daily schedule will be like.  I also am figuring out how often I will need or want a babysitter.  I love my little man, but would love to have more from my business.

So, watch out September... I'm coming with full force!  I will finish 50 makeovers for September.  Who wants to join me?

Here is my ultimate goal.... I need to keep it in front of me at all times!

I can, I will, I must accomplish this goal!
