the month so far

It's the 21st.  I am happy (and surprised) to report that my October goals have been going strong.  Really strong, actually.  Maybe too strong -- to the point where all of the journaling and meditation was taking up all of my precious blogging time.



Hence my relative silence :)

However, in all seriousness, things have gone, for the most part, really well.  I have meditated daily, done a bit of journaling each morning, spent under 60 minutes/day on my phone (as calculated by Moment), avoided GOMI entirely (yay!), and have managed to floss each night.  Good prep for my dentist appointment next month . . .

I have also found myself somewhat more patient at work (including on call), have gotten in all of my planned workouts (started half training!), and I've been pretty productive:

☑ finished our 2014 photo album
☑ submitted my PCOS presentation
☑ aaaaaalmost finished book club book (and then the book club was postponed!)

Honestly, I have no idea why this month has gone so well!  I have also implemented some new organizational practices with my planner, but I find it hard to believe its powers are that magical.  Anyway, I still owe you all a review of Simplicity Parenting, and I haven't forgotten.  I actually decided to take the plunge and eliminate A's bedtime TV show (reading Brittany's post finally motivated me to give it a try) and so I'd like to see how this works before drawing any grand conclusions.

Last night, however, was pretty good.

And so was the weekend.

On an unrelated note, I signed up for Trunk Club for women - Nordstrom's version of Stitch Fix.  My trunk is on its way!  Will definitely do a review/pic post.
