My ever creative friend Deena recaps each month with a numbers post, and I thought I'd join in the fun. As per usual, January has gone by so fast - but we're halfway through winter, so that's the good news. Here's what went on around here this month:
31 days without shopping. I even went to the mall for a hair color appointment, did some browsing, and bought nothing. I'm having fun wearing what's in my closet.
2 lunch/dinner dates with C. I love one on one time with my boys, so I can find out what's going on in those brains of theirs. There was also 1 lunch date with my brother and sister, which stretched to three hours. Apparently, we had a lot to talk about!
1 "Happy Light" finally set up on my desk. I bought it in December, but didn't take it out of the box. And now I keep forgetting to turn it on. Sigh. Eventually I'll let you know if it works.
8 swim meets attended. The season is almost over, and I'm sad, sad, sad. We still have districts and hopefully a trip to state (keep your fingers crossed). I've been watching C and T swim for seven years, so I'm really going to miss the pool. It's the only time I'm warm all winter.
19 workouts done. I'm trying to get back on track with the 21 Day Fix, but I get bored easily. Has anyone tried Hammer and Chisel?
1 trip to Vegas with my husband. Mostly for work, but we managed to have a little fun too. Although, 2 nights we were in bed by 9pm. C was so disappointed in us.
30 rainy days. I'm probably exaggerating, but it sure felt like it. If only I would remember to turn on my Happy Light! It snowed very briefly one day, and there was a little sunshine. I think.
Many scholarship apps proofread for T. Honestly, filling them out is like a full time job for him. But he's a much better writer than me, so I enjoy reading what he comes up with.
1 visit to the orthodontist to start my Invisalign treatment. Even though it's a long process, I'm looking forward to one day having straight teeth again.
2 books read. A goal is to spend more time reading this year, so I'm pretty happy that I finished two. I get excited when a new Elizabeth George novel comes out, but this one was a little disappointing. I really enjoyed Thresholds, and I'll be reviewing it next month.
Tomorrow I'm headed south to visit my uncle and grandpa Ed, so I'll finish the month spending time with 2 of my favorite people.
Have a great weekend!
