4. What gifts did I give and/or receive?
5. What special or unusual purchases did I make?
I am taking a class through Big Picture Classes called Motherload that starts the end of the month. Went Goodwill shopping with Bailey on their 50% off day – got some clothes and a few other small things. Went Goodwill shopping a week later and got a chair, dresser and three new apothecary jars.
6. What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
Kadie found out she is going to need a shunt put in her brain and that does not sound fun at all.
7. What were my accomplishments this month?
I finished up Power Scrapping – Digi Style and got excited about scrapbooking again. I cleaned up the dining room area so that we can start having dinners together at the table instead of eating off our laps. I am working on my One Little Word album. I am working on moving my digital supplies to a larger external hard drive. I also organized my finished dig layouts on the computer by year.
8. What were my disappointments this month?
The blowup with Kadie and Breanne took way too much of my time and energy.
9. How did I do on my goals for the month? (Or any current short or long term goals)
I got my current pictures and pages printed.
10. Anything else noteworthy to include?
I got to watch baby Bella a couple of times this month. I am so excited about being able to spend the time with her. I was afraid I wouldn’t be as close with her as I am with Bailey and I love my new grandbaby.
I completed 78 scrapbook pages this month – crazy I know, but after taking the Power Scrapping class I have been a whirlwind when it comes to scrapping.
QUOTE – The best kind of life is surrounding yourself with people you love, who love you back. For me, motherhood has done that.
