I do have more good news - I have found some meetup groups that do things all over the state, not just in Phx, Sedona or Flagstaff. I am signing up for a bunch of trips and suggesting others. I also went for two hikes this week - one with my flagstaff friend and one alone.

And my parents will be out Monday, not tuesday! Yikes. Working super duper hard on things now.

Jilly - that is AWESOME news that you went on two hikes, and one was with a friend! Just think about six months ago - you wouldn't have dreamt that you would have achieved such a fantastic life where you could go hiking and return to your home!

It's fantastic that you found a way to find other hikers!

Have a *great* time with your parents smile

Yes! I was so thrilled to be outdoors and moving. And of course the hikes were so scenic. Th flagstaff one had pines and views of the peaks, and the Sedona one was red rock buttes, cottonwoods and a creek.

This Saturday, if i can manage to get up and out by 8am, there will be a kayak day on the verde river with the arizona paddle meetup group. I've already told them which local pub to hit afterward and made the offer that people can crash at my place if they want. I think most of them are coming up from Phx.

Also, someone saw my post that i am from here and sent me an email saying he lives here too and would like to hike with me!

So thankfully things are looking up with the outdoors for me.

Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the meetup groups. smile

Looking forward to hitting all the thrift stores with my mom! I hope she can find a lot of nice things to sell at her antique booth in San Diego. And I need my parents' advice on what to do with fixing up my home and yard. They are very good at these things.

I had fun with my folks. We hit up a ton of thrifts and got me some needed items for my rainwater harvesting, for my RV and for my house. Now I am feeling a bit backed up, even though I really am doing just fine. I think i am so used to feeling stressed out that it's my go-to reaction after taking time off from work.

Has anyone had a chance to revisit the goals that they listed in these posts to see how far they have come? How many are still actually goals and how many have been fulfilled?

It can be rather eye opening.

Is there a point to setting goals if you don't do a reality check to see if you are actually still working toward them or meeting them.

We set goals every week in our Life Management Study class. It is interesting how now people are starting to set goals for the week, never reach them but yet list them again plus add new ones each week. Why. A goal is suppose to be just that a goal that you are trying to attain.

I do think it's good to review your goals once a week and think about which ones you can make progress on. I also think it's OK to not meet a goal - life is chaotic by its nature and never runs smoothly! If we accept that, and do our best with what we are given, then we can eventually make progress smile Fall down six times, get up seven!

This current week we were "off" from school and it suddenly feels like I have hours and hours of time available to get to-do list things done! I forget sometimes just how much time the schoolwork is taking up, until it's gone for a little while.

Shot term goals: I got back from a two week bit of traveling, and then had things I immediately needed to do. So I am still a bit tired. I am really looking forward to bot having more distractions. I want to work hard on my various life areas: my home, online work, offline work, getting errandy things in order, and planning the next few months around my life priorities. I have gathered a few sheets of paper to make lists on in different categories and will hang them on the walls when they feel done!
