And I have a living room full of chopsaw dust to clean up before then. (A happy, happy house project!)
It was a disappointing month for my goals.
February is always hard for me (I am not a winter person) and with Matt being gone from home so often and me in sole charge of all responsibilities around here, I wasn't in the most productive (read: sane) frame of mind.
Nevertheless, here are the stats:
House Projects of the Month: there were several!
~ I pruned the apple trees (Matt helped)
~ I lined the kitchen shelving with lace (I said ANY project, no matter how small, remember!)
~Began the stairway bookcase (Matt)
~Hung molding in kitchen (Matt)
~ and TODAY, the bathroom floor is getting replaced by Matt, hence the aforementioned wood dust.
Family Read Aloud:
- David and the Pheonix (the older children enjoyed it but not the ending. They hated the ending.)
Three letters. One to Opa. (I was too depressed and/or strung out to write anything productive, so I didn't write anything. At all.) Pathetic, I know.
Christmas Gift Made:
I made several things this month but are giving them away before Christmas. Two crocheted baby hats. Three dishclothes for a housewarming gift. An embroidered floursack as a just-because gift.
And to set aside for Christmas- a pair of homemade (and edge-crocheted) pillowcases. I will show pictures of these things as I have time.
Exercised: The goal is three times a week and I barely squeaked by with just 12 days of exercise.
Drank 60 oz water daily: yes.
AND this month I completely stopped drinking soda. Not a drop in February. I wasn't an insane soda drinker-usually a couple times a week-but I hated that I loved drinking it so much. So this is big. Bears repeating if I do say so myself.
I DIDN'T DRINK A DROP OF SODA IN ALL OF FEBRUARY!!!
Added to Savings Account: yes
Added to Car fund: yes
Added to Principal of house: made a double payment.
Devotions: I forgot to keep track of this. I know I did okay but I know I could do better. Of course, we have daily devotions with the family at dinner and always at lunch...I am talking about personal, me-myself-and-I reading.
