August 2010 Goals Update

by Wendy Copley on September 9, 2010

This was not a good month for accomplishing goals over all. I only checked three…er…two and a half…things off my goals list!


  • #20 Make a special birthday hat and get a special birthday plate. — Hmmm…OK. I sort of did part of this one. I bought a birthday cake hat for Augie’s birthday but he didn’t want to wear it. I still need to get a birthday plate. Unless paper plates count? No, probably not.
  • #51 Attend BlogHer 2010. — Done! Read about it here.
  • #53 Double Wendolonia’s blog traffic and subscriptions. — I’m always embarrassed to talk about setting goals for my blog on my blog, but I don’t feel like I should just ignore this item. I’ve been trucking along on this goal slowly but surely all year. I officially hit the numbers I was shooting for several months ago and I’ve stayed there, so I’m feeling confident that this one can be checked off.


  • #59 Go on more than one date with Zach. — We are going out next Tuesday for my birthday, so I’ll be half-way to this goal then. Kinda lame that it’s September and I haven’t been out alone with my husband even once…
  • #60 Go out to a grown up restaurant with another couple. — We’re going to try to go to that same meal with some friends.

  • It is so rare to go on a date alone! So hard to find childcare without any family nearby, especially for four kids…and especially with Owen.

  • Robyn

    I forgot to offer earlier, so I’ll do it publicly. If your kids will have us, Frank and I can watch them so that you can go out on a date with Zach. Or just have an evening without the kids.

    I just stumbled upon your blog and can totally relate to aspiring for more blog traffic, but being shy about talking about it. And no one would call me shy. It’s sort of nice to say it out loud 🙂

    Speaking of the BlogHer conference in New York… If you ever happen to be in NYC again, be sure to stop by this amazing little coffe place called MUD. Oh, and also Saints Alp (and no, that’s not a typo 😛 ), which has really good bubble tea and food (Asian cuisine).

    I know you are in Northern Cali, but not sure where. I hope not San Bruno. Maybe you could post an update just let us know you are okay?

  • I am joining you on #59. My hubby and I actually get a night out alone tonight! Too bad we always seem to need 2 nights, one to rest and recover from the kids and one to enjoy the time out!

    I’ve been lurking on your blog a ton and LOVE it! Your ‘The Week in Bentos’ is especially inspiring!

  • Thank you so much for your concern! I am in the SF Bay Area, but quite a distance away from San Bruno — it’s on the other side of the bay and about a 30+ minute drive. It really is a terrible tragedy and my heart is with the people there who have suffered such loss.

    I don’t know if this would be of an interest to u but u have a reader from Kuwait 🙂
    if u don’t know where that is just google it ;p

  • Glad to hear you’re ok. Small world too – my husband travels weekly to SF for work.

  • Anne Marie

    Compliments on your blog. I’m finding your bento box lunches inspiring. I’m just starting to pack lunches for my 4 year old twins and needed to know it is ok to make lunches fun. I was afraid of being indulgent, you know what I mean? But when I see you doing it I don’t think that, I like it and know I would like it at any age. Maybe it will help me get me 6 year old to eat more than plain pasta, rice, and cheese, maybe. Great job Mom!
