With the exception of last weekend, I think January was a productive month. Last weekend was icy and cold. Also, Brian has been sick for a couple of weeks.
He's sick of being sick.
I'm sick of him being sick.
Men tend to act helpless when they are sick (not you Brian).
Ok, here is a recap of my goals for January:
1. Wake up at 6am instead of 6:15am
I succeeded in this goal and it has helped me to have much more relaxed mornings.
2. Give Money
I began my sponsorship with Compassion this month, and I also donated a small amount to Hope for Honduran Children and also the Cesar Millan Foundation. After my giving, I ended up with only $9 left to spend for the remainder of the week. Perhaps that was poor planning on my part. Nine dollars goes fast and buys nothing.
3. Write something
Eh, I didn't really do this (although I blogged a couple of times, but that doesn't count). I really would like to write a fiction book but I can't think of an original story line. My clever ideas always end up evolving into something that's already been written or my story line becomes autobiographical.
4. Read something good (i.e. not Fifty Shades)
I read the book "Seven" by Jen Hatmaker. I have mixed feelings towards this book, but overall I was uninspired. I may decide to write a blog review. I've been wanting to read Gone Girl, but I'm still waiting to borrow a copy. I couldn't bring myself to spend $12 on the Kindle copy. I'm cheap that way.
Alright, hopefully more consistent blogging soon. I think that will be a February goal. But in my defense, work has been hectic. I've also renewed my gym membership. I'll be enthusiastic about the gym for at least another two days.
