Vacation Goals

So, where do I begin with my first blog returning from vacation?

First, I wish to thank Charlie Wiles, Jonathan Howe, Chris Howell and Kimberly Bingham for their blogs.  Well done, and kudos to each of you.  You inspired us.

Next, I certainly missed writing for you.  Blogging is addictive.  I look forward to getting back into a routine.

I did not post a blog for Monday because I knew there would be much work waiting on me at the CrossPoint office, and there was.  I made a few notes while on vacation about some blog topics.  So, give me a few days and I will get those generated.

I had four goals for vacation.


I was able to do this with unrestrained success.  We spent several days together before Taylor departed for Europe.  After he left, I was given unlimited time with my daughter.  All four of us needed that time together.

Goal #2: RUN 100 MILES.

I did not attain this goal in its entirety.  However, I did log 87 miles, and that is 87 more than if I had not tried to run 100.  When you do not reach a goal for one month, the best thing to do is retrofit it for the next month.  So, 100 miles is within reach for August.  I ran 8 miles on Saturday, so that gave me a good start.


I failed miserably short on this goal by reading only three books.  I started with a bang and read three books right out of the gate.  My vacation took a different turn and twist, which did not allow me much disposable time for reading.  Not to fret, however.  I did read three books, and that is three more than if I had decided not to read any.

Goal #4:  REST!

This is the most important goal, and I accomplished it with glowing colors.  Yes, I needed the rest.  And yes, I rested.

It’s now time to get back into the routine.

Thanks, again, to Charlie, Jonathan, Chris and Kimberly.
