Goodreads Challenge
Currently at 55 of 312 books for the year.

Definitely feeling well ahead of the game but I know that can catch up with me quickly, especially since I have chosen a lot of books outside my normal reading comfort zone for the Across the States challenge.  It will be another busy month for me!

For some of my other goals on the year:
I have written 3 postcards/letters (not including birthdays, Christmas or thank yous)
I have painted my nails every week (I decided I will have a special post once a month to share the best)
I have made all my weekly savings deposits (some even a little early)
Haven't done much extra fun with Munchkin this month, it was busy potty training but we did make thank you cards and some other little crafts
No date with Hubby so far (Valentine's does land on a weekend this year so it will be the first we have gotten to spend together in several years).

Points Earned this Month:  143
Points spent this Month: 0 (woohoo! No book buying is an accomplishment for me)
Pages Read this Month: 6,658 & 12:31 listening time
