August Goals and Highlights
Good morning!! It's been a minute since I've had a goal post (or even gave myself structured goals), but I'm finally feeling settled in our new home in North Carolina. I didn't want to push myself to do too much and burn out (which unfortunately is a very common thing for me..downfall of being an Enneagram 7) but I'm ready to get back to having a routine and things to work on.
There are so many things that I could have as my highlight of July, from exploring our new town to making new friends, but it was probably going to Myrtle Beach with my family for a week! I don't know if we've all spent that much time together since I graduated college, and we got to have a lot of fun together. Plus, I got to spend a ton of time with my nephew and even got him to say my name (I had him call me GG since that's easier to pronounce than Gretchen). It was a great trip!
Now let's see how my annual goals are doing!
2021 Combined Miles
Get Ready to Sell!
I can officially say now that we've sold our house! We closed on July 19 and luckily everything went really smoothly and the timing was perfect! We listed the house the day that we moved out to drive to North Carolina and had showings immediately. We got a couple of offers right away (not as many as we expected, but as one of my friends who just sold a house reminded me- all it takes is one offer!), and only had a few minor things come up in the inspection. We were able to do everything from North Carolina thanks to using Docusign for almost everything, and only needed to get a few papers notarized and mailed back. All in all it was much easier and quicker than I expected, probably because we had the most amazing real estate agent! If you're also selling or buying I would definitely recommend Sean and would happily refer anyone interested.
Visit all the Parks in Apex
I shared this on Instagram, but one of my goals for the rest of the year is to visit all of the parks in both Cary and Apex. Since there are a lot less in Apex, and that's the town I live in, my goal is to finish off that list in August. So far I've visited seven of the parks and have four to go (which includes smaller neighborhood parks). I have a fun post planned when I cross them all off so be on the lookout for that!
