If You and I had coffee


If you and I had coffee...

We'd meet via FaceTime or Skype because of the Coronavirus. With everything being shut down (we're currently in the second week of schools being closed), it's nice to have a chat with a friend even if it's not in person.

If you and I had coffee...

I'd ask you how you are dealing with the pandemic. I'd tell you that all of my local grocery stores are out of toilet paper and paper towels. Lots of canned goods and meats are out of stock. I'm slightly amused and annoyed at how people are hoarding these items. I'm grateful that we haven't had to go out to really buy anything that people have been hoarding. We have been at home, and I love it. I'm such a homebody, so being at home has been great.

I have to say the memes about the virus are hilarious. I think that's one of the only good things to come out of this situation.

If you and I had coffee...

I'd tell you that I have always been grateful for my kids' teachers...especially now. We've been helping the boys with their homework, and they have been learning online. I really think people need to be grateful for teachers. I seriously don't know how they do it. Having to suddenly homeschool two kids have been a challenge.

If you and I had coffee...

I'd tell you that I have been reading a lot. I'm still continuing to read genres that I don't normally read. There have been a couple of books that I decided not to finish. This is usually rare because I am the type of person that once I start a book, I have to finish it even if I don't like the book. It seems silly, but of course, I have to make things complicated.

If you and I had coffee...

I'd tell you that we finally decided to get Disney+. There's a deal going on with Hulu and Disney so we decided to try it out. So far, so good. We have so many shows and movies to catch up on. This is actually really good because it shows that I have been actually reading a lot and have been limiting my screen time.


What would you tell me?

March Goals

Happy Tuesday! Is it me, or did February just seem to drag on forever? I know a lot of people think that January feels like such a long month, but February seemed like it lasted forever despite being the shortest month.

I'm glad that February is over, and it's finally March. I'm so ready for Spring. I'm ready to feel creative, and I'm ready to get over the "winter blahs". I didn't feel as motivated to get a lot of stuff done. I blame it on my energy. I'm not even sure how to describe it. I felt strange all last month. I was feeling way more energized than usual, but I did have lots of moments where I felt very sluggish and off. The best way I can describe it was like a wave.

Anyways, I'm starting to ramble, so let's get to the recap. Let's check out which goals I accomplished last month and which ones I set for this month.


Recap of February Goals
  • Read 1 book: I read a ton of books! I think I read around 20-25 books (I'll have to double-check). To be fair, most of them were novellas, but I'm still shocked that I read that many. Also, most of those books were from a genre that I don't read or had never heard of, which was...interesting. I definitely plan on writing about this soon because...holy hell.
  • Work in my journal: Yes! I did work in my journal, but not as much as I would have liked. 
  • Work on my art memoir project: This was a fail. I think this is going to be a project that I will work on when I feel like it. I don't want to place a deadline on it or feel rushed to complete it.
  • Stay active (and keep track of it): I'm not sure whether to call this a pass or a fail. I didn't stay as active as I wanted, and I definitely didn't keep track of it. However, I did stay active a few times a week. I'm hoping that I can establish a work out routine soon.
  • Try 1 new recipe: Yikes. Once again, I did not try a new recipe. This seriously needs to change.
  • Work on 1 Awesome Ladies Project prompt or class every week: Unfortunately, I didn't get to work on any classes or prompts. I'm hoping that I can work on some ALP stuff this month. I even put reminders in my planner so hopefully, that will help me remember to get started on a class or two.

March Goals
  • Read 2 books
  • Work in my journal
  • Write more personal pieces for the blog
  • Stay active
  • Try 2 new recipes
  • Take more photos
  • Work on 1 Awesome Ladies Project prompt or class every week

What are your goals for March?
