July Sliced

I keep thinking next month my life will get back to normal. After 4 months, I’m still not ready to give up hope. I started a new job and shouldn’t have to move again for a year – so yeah I’m hoping by the end of August my life will feel a lot more settled. Until then, let’s see how July sliced.

0 – Articles written. I’m hoping to fix that this month.

1 – Blog post. This month I’ll try to move past my month in review post.

2 – Moves; one into someone’s garage and then another to my own house – all within a week!

3 – Books read. Let’s not mention that one was a picture book I need to review.

4 – Pounds lost. At least all that stress was good for something!

5 – Days of being homeless. I’m grateful for friends who opened their house to me and the army of helpers that moved my stuff both times. It is nice to have my own address again.

8 – Days at my new job. That’s a lot of training!

30 – Countries visiting my blog

45 – States visiting.

105 – Words added to my new book. It’s not much, but I’ll take what I can get.

1353 – Page views.

1 – Article written. My one month off from the Homemaking Cottage, slipped into two. I did have a lot of fun with my Airman Family Book Club article though.April Paper airplane

4 – Social events, from writing club, to book club to Relief Society and Pack Meeting

7 – Potential employers spoken to at a job fair

14 – Speed interview tables – you know, like speed dating, but for a job. (No, I didn’t get it.)

27 – Countries visited Easy As PIE

47 – States that visited Easy As PIE. Apparently I’m very popular in Nebraska!

Slices of January

Last month I blamed Christmas for my lack of post, this month I had to come with a new excuse. I’ll get to that in a minute as I slice January.

2 – Projects completed. (Pathetic)January taffy Hopefully I can do better this year.

3 – Books read; all of them by Lois Lowry. I can’t wait to share my reviews of The Giver series with you.

4 – Pounds lost! Goodbye holiday weight… and then some.

Slices of October

Ready to talk turkey? I’m not! I still feels like school just started, even though we spent last night walking around the neighborhood begging for candy trick or treating. Maybe reflecting on how I sliced October will help me come to grips that it’s over.October invites

1 – Day at Bloggy Boot Camp.

2 – Books read. I barely finished One Thousand Gifts yesterday morning.

2 – Scrapbook layouts. To reach my goal of finishing 2011, I only have 57 layouts to do this month. Yeah, it’s not looking good.

2 – Days logging my food. I don’t know why I’m being so lazy with this!

2.2 – Pounds lost! Maybe its OK to be lazy with logging my food if I cut way back on sweets. I was so good last night and only had one piece of the kids candy.

6 – Articles written, including Flight Activities for Kids.

13 – Bat invitations made.

14 – Projects completed. Several were inspired from Bloggy Boot Camp.October states

15 – Blog posts.
