Since I have decided to take a little break from Life 365 this year, I have decided to participate in monthly Round-Ups instead! I’ve been following The Scrapbook Lady for years, and I have always admired her Round-ups. It was about time that I give it a try!
What reading/learning did I do this month? (books, blogs, magazines, ebooks, podcasts, classes, etc.)
I am still on an audiobook kick. It has really helped me to get through those household mundane tasks that I procrastinate so much. So here is what I have been listening to this month:
Pretties by Scott Westerfield (Not finished yet )
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I also actually set down and read a book too. I’ve really enjoyed having the opportunity to occasionally review books for my blog.
Motherhood Matters by Connie E. Sokol
What entertainment did I watch/listen to this month? (movies, tv shows, plays, music, concerts, etc.)
What fun things did I do with my family and/or friends?
Story@Home Conference – I got to attend this wonderful conference. It was a great mommy vacation and I’m still processing all the wonderful information. I hope to be able to implement it into my daily life soon!
I got to go to The Hunger Games on opening night with my cousin, Heather. I love being with her and it was so fun having someone to go to a movie with! Loved the movie too!
Dr. Seuss Day – We celebrated Dr. Seuss Day with a fun dinner!
Beth started her Spring Season of Soccer and its been fun to see how much she is improving. She scored a goal at her first game and that was truly exciting. She was also excited that her cousins/uncles/aunts (The Spencers and Cody & Becki) were in town for one of her games and even though it was kind of a distraction for her playing, it was great to have them there and visit!
We also got to have a picnic at the park with Uncle Cody, Aunt Becki, and Cousin Mallory. It was a fun visit and good to see them, now that they live in Vernal.
What gifts did I give and/or receive?
Nothing this month.
What special or unusual purchases did I make?
Nothing in particular this month.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
I’m still working out my anxiety and depression.
What were my accomplishments this month?
This month rushed by so fast and I just didn’t accomplish much.
What were my disappointments this month?
I’m having a hard time staying on top of my depression/anxiety. I keep forgetting to take my pills and it is making my body have some bad effects. Its been hard to just get through some days and it saddens me that I just don’t have the energy that I would like to have. I’ve been extra tired this month and so I haven’t been able to stay up like I’m used to. That is usually my time to get design work in and its just not happening like I would like it too.
How did I do on my goals for the month? (Or any current short or long term goals)
We did a little better at doing more Scripture Study and Daily Lessons. It’s still not where I want to be – but its becoming more of a habit and that’s a good thing.
I am doing much better at planning out my meals and couponing. It’s getting easier!
I still failed at getting a personal fitness plan going. Not sure why its so hard but I need to lose weight!
Anything else noteworthy to include?
I feel like it was another slow month for blogging. I’ve been really busy but not a lot to show for it.
