Hello July!

I always love the first day of a new month.  The anticipation of the unknown, of what may happen for you/us/me.  New month, full of potential and a chance to maybe right a wrong or follow through on something that you have let go by way of the "maybe later" projects.  Anything is possible.  At least, that's how I always feel at the beginning of a new month.  But somewhere between the 1st and the last day of the month, fear, disappointment and maybe even despair takes over me.  Why?  Well it's simple really.  If I set ridiculous goals or expectations for myself and fall short, I am a failure.  At least, in my eyes I am.  Oh come on, you know full well that we are our own worst critic.  Anyway,  I have a couple of goals this month that I hope to meet.  Wish me luck.

How about you?  What goals or expectations do you have, if any, for this month? Besides the killer tan and the bikini/speedo body I mean.  heh.

In other news, the Astros are have been in first place since April.  No I'm not kidding and yes, it's kind of a big deal.  -um hello? this hardly ever happens.  Oh who am i kidding? It never happens.  I'm all kinds of proud right now that's for sure.  And for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I am a HUGE baseball fan.  Specifically, a Houston Astros fan.  Have been since I was about 7 years old.  Our record has been, how should I put it? Less than stellar the past few years so for us to even be in first place and in the American league no less, well, that's kind of huge. So pardon me if my being giddy gets out of hand.  There's still four months left in the season, more if they make it to the playoffs.  Oh but to dream...

The bewitching hour is almost upon me, so I will say good night.  Tomorrow is going to be a great day, I'm off on Friday for the long holiday weekend and I see beach, sand and sun in my future.

Be good.

Yes, your 'Stros have been doing remarkably well this season. And wonders of wonders, they are still going strong! Unlike the Mets, who always collapse after a strong start. Or my Yankees, who are not as strong as they should be -- but doing "okay," considering.

Anyway, look up to a new month! I'm trying to, although it is very tough to do. said...

Yay, Astros!
Have a fun-filled holiday weekend, Yvonne.

Youse guys found gold with Altuve. And now you're finally getting a team around him. My A's and Reds, not so much. The wheel turns. Enjoy your holiday!

Good luck with this month's goals!! I gave up making goals. At this point it's an accomplishment to make it to the end of the week without killing someone.

Yeah no clue what you're talking about, I cannot watch baseball. Although I WILL declare my support for the Angels. Because Gene Autry used to own them.

Enjoy your baseball. I personally love basketball myself. Whatever makes you happy I say!

I have no goals. My life is boring 99% of the time but I do try to enjoy each day. Some days are harder than others.

Hope you reach your goals but if you don't, they'll be there next time! XX
