January Wrap Up and Free Book

I’ve decided to add a new feature to by blog and I hope you’ll like it.  It will replace my free books for the month post.  There is a free book in this post somewhere but you must read on to find it 🙂  They’ll be free book with each of these wrap-ups.

So, I bought this great planner because I decided to enter the world of the productive again instead of the “I’ve got a baby and I can’t get anything done” whine that I had been using.  I make monthly, weekly, and daily goals and I have a way to track them.  I get to check off goals and it makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something. I had 5 daily goals for the month: 10,000 steps (22/31), meditation reading (29/31), 8 glasses of water (keep in mind that I HATE water 22/31), a note to Jason (14/22), One Line Mom Diary (29/31).  I think I did okay and look forward to improving on these numbers in January.

I’ve added two more things to my daily goals for February.  One is a secret til the end of the month, but it is a true challenge and the other is this challenge…

A Month of Letters. This goes along with my bucket list goal of writing 1000 letters, so I’m going to give it a try.  Why not join in?  If I have your address don’t be surprised to find something in the mail from me this month 🙂 I want to thank Care for helping me find this one.

I have a friend named Molly, some of you may know her as the Bumble, and she has been doing a series of posts about lessons learned in Regina Brett’s book, God Never Blinks.  I have enjoyed this series and hope you are reading it too.  Regina is a local writer and has a new book titled Be the Miracle.  She will be signing books in the area this month and I plan on attending one of these events.  Would you like to win a signed copy?  Just leave me your email address in a comment.  I’ll accept entries until I attend the signing, but neither of us knows when that is so better do it now, the next signing is Sunday 🙂

Those are my thoughts for my January goals and a few of my plans for February.  Are you someone who needs a list to accomplish things, too?
