You know. Back in the old days of blogging - if I didn't have a post up by 7:30am- I was getting emails wondering if I'm okay. Now it takes nearly a month, from a friend who doesn't facebook.
I miss daily blogging, but I don't see it fitting back into my schedule anytime real soon. We'll see what next year's school schedule brings.
I do, however, make time to sit down and write my monthly goals in my journal. For February I wrote down:
- Do the taxes
- lose --- pounds
- Try a class at the Aquatic Center
- Visit Lake Michigan
- Bike 25 miles
- Contact the Archive department at the library
- make some cards
- read a book
- build a puzzle
I credit writing down goals for the fact that so far this month - we visited Lake Michigan (last Sunday), I've lost over 1/2 of my goal for the month, I've not only tried a class at the Aquatic Center - but I've gone to EIGHT classes this month, I finished a book this afternoon (Night Circus - up for grabs) finished our second puzzle of the year last week and started our third - and hey, here I am blogging.
I still need to get some biking in, contact the archives, do the taxes and choose my next book (I have a stash, and I may have one on order) and get some work done on both the yearbook and the church directory.
Grand Haven, by the way, was spectacular. It was fun to see the differences between now and when we went on December 31st. (which, thanks to me blogging so little, you can see by just scrolling down a couple posts) I originally had it in my head that we'd go last Saturday, but Greg ended up working. The weather was still holding for Sunday, so Sunday it was.
Next time I won't forget my Yaktrax.
And then, the real reason for our road trip out to the other side of the state. We took the college kid out for lunch (Bob Evans, because Schuberg's isn't open on Sundays) and picked up the stuff needed to get the taxes done.
February has been rather dreary with the grey skies and no snow, but I feel like we've been keeping busy with projects, outings, activities and puzzles thus keeping that feeling of the walls closing in on us at bay.
It's all good.
Here's to another productive week.
