Morning Meanderings…How Has January Reading Been For You?
Good morning! *YAWN* *STRETCH*
I dreamt weird last night. At one point I was at an orphanage and I thought I was adopting a baby… turns out it was an 8-year-old girl. The adoption cost was $800 dollars and I did not have any money on me so I had to borrow from a friend. At some point in the dream my 8-year-old girl turned into a boy (age unknown) but I can see him in my mind. In my dream world, I did not know – or did not care that the child had been swapped out.
In the end I remember talking to a real life friend (in my dream) who apparently had been taking care of my adopted child. I explained that I was going to ease the child into my home by Wednesday, but wanted to take it slow. My friend agreed that was a good process. Then I woke up. I have no idea what that was about…..
Here we are on Sunday. My Navy son is flying back to Florida today…. I set up for serving IHN this morning (it is my teams week to serve with the homeless) and things are looking pretty ok moving forward. I say ok as this is the week I start working full-time (tomorrow) and with IHN also this week, plus throw in a Wednesday meeting, and hopefully close to daily work outs… I proceed with caution that I do not try to stretch myself too thin.
I really do believe this week will be fine. I have wonderful volunteers working with me and I don’t foresee anything real stressful….
So how is your January coming? I can’t believe we are sitting on the 22nd already today. That’s just wild! For me I think I am doing well, I don’t have an exact count at this moment, but have had some great audio time (the cold weather has kept me inside) and the weather helps my book reading too.
This morning I found this Reading/Audio Spreadsheet that looks SO COOL! I haven’t had any time to fill anything in yet as well…. I just got up and found it like ten minutes ago, and I am going to church in um….. 23 minutes. But when I get home… I plan to fill in what I know so far this year and see what happens. (Kind of excited about that!) I didn’t really set and goals for myself this year along book counts or audio minutes… I just like to see where I land
How about you? Is your reading in January a good month for you – or no? Have you set up and ways of tracking what you read this year (or are you like me last year and do a massive count the last week of December?)
