August Re-cap

August Re-cap

What happened here at The Reading Diaries this month.

This month the hubby was home a lot which is awesome but kept my reading goal a little low.

So September now that my oldest is back in school I hope to have more time to read while he's at school.

This month I had a chance to update since I've been slacking just a little bit.

So far this year I've completed: 2
2013 Young Adult Reading Challenge  50 Books
2013 Ebook Challenge  50 Books

September Goals:

Read 25 books.
At least 10 review books.
Respond to comments and comment more.
Post daily.
Be more social (I'm kind of shy)

Personal updates:

School has started so the oldest will be gone during the day.
The little one and I are working on her letters, numbers, and other crafty stuff during the day. My goal is to have her reading by 4.
The monster puppy has learned to come when called and walked off leash last month well for the most part come. Now my goal is to teach him to stay this month so he'll stop chasing my cat.
I want to keep exercising to get back in running shape so when monster puppy is a year he'll start running with me. I've been slacking a bit.
I've been sketching, being crafty, and done lots of baking this summer. I've perfected pretzels and they are so yummy.

Alright September I'm ready to stomp out these goals.
