Week one September goals update

I give myself a B + for this past week as I did achieve a number of my goals but slipped on some others.

YES - Kick off the month by working all day at library book sale fundraiser & then go out to dinner for my birthday * By the way we made $4844 for the library by selling used books & media, book bags and asking for donations and dinner and the company of my Hubby were great *
YES - Tree care company can take over a big chunk of our pruning yard work burden 
PART WAY - Get bid on fixing shed  - we met with the contractor and discussed two options; waiting for bid 
YES - Learned I will have a consulting project this fall but the other one tentatively scheduled for December was postponed to 2013  * Some help for the savings account, but not as much as hoped *
ALMOST - Walk dog daily - missed one day
ALMOST - Exercise three times a week minimum - missed one day
YES - Decluttered not one, but two items daily! 
YES AND NO - Do not go out for coffee by myself – once by self & once with friend
YES - Weekly do volunteer work at library- actually did two days
PART WAY - Buy the items on Fall clothing purchase list – bought a wallet, cardigan and pullover; still need hiking shoes and a belt
