Holy wow, the second half of January and the entire month of February just seemed to evaporate. March is here, and almost more startling is that Lent begins on Wednesday — and I don’t quite know why I find it startling because it’s beginning rather late this year.
So anyway, hi there internet? How were the first two months of the year for you? For us they were a combination of being sick off and on and getting things accomplished. Also, we welcomed a new critter on Valentine’s Day! Check the instagram feed to meet Nichodemus – so named for the rat from The Secret of Nihm.
As far at the 33 before 33 list, I’m not doing so great. I totally and completely dropped off the no sugar thing, and my working out goals aren’t going great. I did however make a dent in my reading list! I finished three books, and am concurrently reading… four! I didn’t plan to do that, but I lost one, picked up another, downloaded something in my kindle, and THEN I needed to read a book while Henry napped while we were waiting for our flight home yesterday from item number 18 (though it was three confirmations as the baby was baptized in February instead) so I picked up Middlemarch by George Eliot. And the confirmation was LOVELY! My friend (whose kids I sponsored) gave me a stunning rosary as a thank you gift.
Skin-care is going well. I ended up scaling WAY back and buying a better night moisturizer!
We are completely out of consumer debt! Now the trick will be to maintain that.
Backyard landscaping is coming along, phase A of the patio extension is complete, if the weather is good we hope to continue it this weekend. Also I plan to start the sourdough starter and get a piecing if I can manage it. Also I’ve been getting better about saying the rosary again.
I also used my float tank certificate the last day I could — it was AMAZING. I didn’t feel like I had slept for a week like some people told me a would, but after an hour I felt like I had slept for 10 hours! 10/10 would do it again. I’m hoping to get JP to do a session or two as well.
Anyway, this was more of a check in post, and I need to hop into bed. Silly work tomorrow.
