2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

What are YOUR reading goals?

NaNoWriMo 2018: Day 01

Today is Day 01 of Writing Daily.

Ugh! I requested today off so that I could get ALL the writing done.

Instead it’s almost noon and I have 38 words typed. I have more words put into this blog post than I do with my novel. Not a great start to #NaNoWriMo 2018, right?

Things from Spotify

First, let me say that I missed yesterday’s vlog and I’m going to miss today’s. I’m sick and no one, including myself, wants to see that. One day, though, I’ll vlog with the ! We’ll see how that goes!

Now, Spotify has some great stats for how you spend your listening year. Not surprising, my #1 song for 2017 is the same as the #1 song for 2016: by Flo Rida

Wow. So, it looks like I listen to a LOT of artists, right? And a variety of songs 🙂

A Little Behind But I Caught Up!

Work and sickness (headaches) got me behind on my scrapping, but I’m going to catch back up!

Pics are a few years old (date is listed). I love the title work that I did though!

So Tired

I worked another double.
My legs hurt.
My body aches.
But it was a good day.
I wasn’t alone in that double. That counts for something.
Now it is time for me to sleep.
