June was quite busy, but less hectic than some other months! The biggest news is we FINALLY have proper ductwork, and two new HVAC units! Perfect timing for the typical summer heat waves!!

Here’s the breakdown:
Attend P.E.O. State Convention. — Accomplished!
- I had so much at Convention this year – The theme was “Catch The Waves To Better Futures.”
- I also wrote my first-ever Adventure Time post recapping Convention!
- Here’s the link to that post: Adventure Time: Blacksburg, VA Edition (P.E.O. Virginia State Convention 2018)
- As delegates, Darcy and I also successfully reported on Convention to our chapter on Monday, June 11th.
See Incredibles 2. — Accomplished!
- Al and I went to see it on Saturday, June 15th.
- It wasn’t necessarily better than the original movie. However, it was worth the 14-year wait.
- If you’re a fan of the original movie, it’s worth seeing it in the theaters. We also liked the short that preceded the movie.
See Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. — Accomplished!
- We saw the movie on Sunday, June 24th with our friends Mike and Shana.
- Despite some of the criticism, I really like what they did with this movie. I shut my eyes a few times – Some of it was pretty scary!
- I personally recommend seeing it. I love the franchise!
Work on a goals list with Al for the remainder of 2018. — Did not accomplish.
- This didn’t happen. Oh well!
Update the Household Bills spreadsheet. — Semi-Achieved.
- I started playing catch-up last weekend, and will hopefully bring it to conclusion this weekend. Long overdue!

Host a “vacationing doll” from Ohio! — Accomplished!
- We had so much fun hosting Emily during the week of May 29th-June 5th.

- I was able to put Accomplished next to six out of eight goals. Awesome! I’m so excited, and proud of myself.
- The one goal that was Semi-Achieved: I made progress, and I’m happy with it!
- The one goal that I did not accomplish: This wasn’t a huge priority. I like the idea of it, but it may not happen for 2018. No worries!
What about you? Did you have any goals for the month of June?
Come back tomorrow to see my July Goals!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
Congrats on getting so many items checked off.
I really enjoyed Incredibles 2! Lol. That short though….. one of my sons thought the message was ‘don’t play with your food.’ 😑😂😉
Thank you so much! I liked the sequel, too. And that short – It made me cry!
Aww. It was a very sweet way to deliver that message.
