February Goals by Numbers

Well, it's been a month already! Yikes! Here we go.

Incase you missed it, I am doing goals by numbers for my resolutions this year. Here are my February results:

Play 1000 songs on the piano
I played 45 songs on the piano this month.

Read 12 new books

I read 1 book. It's called "Every Day" by David Levithan. Meh...I don't recommend it. Too much agenda for the idea that gender is not really real. Only physical. I strongly don't believe that. So it kinda bugged.

Make 52 new recipes

I made 3 new recipes. Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats, Veggie Rigatoni, and Taco Bake. They were all fantastic! All three came from Megan's cookbook.

Have 12 memorable dates with Clay

Okay- I am going to count 1 memorable date. Clay and I played scrabble TWICE in a day. It was intense. And Clay won BOTH TIMES. UGHHHHHHHHHHH! But you know what? It was still way fun and I love how competitive we are with each other. We have declared each other our sworn nemesis when it comes to games. I just have to say this too- Clay has never beat me in Scrabble before. And all of a sudden he wins TWICE?! We will have to play again this weekend.

 Read Genesis through 2 Kings of the Old testament
Yikes. I am only on Genesis 18. That's embarrasing. Time to kick it in gear Danielle!

105 songs on piano
1 new book
12 new recipes
1 memorable date with Clay
Genesis 1-17 read

Not to shabby. I'm determined to do even better this month!!!

You did totally good! Great amount of songs! I think you did good on everything! I loved hearing about the scrabble with Clay. I can so envision it. Greg doesn't like scrabble, so I basically haven't played it in 7 years. Or monopoly. So sad. I don't even try anymore. Don't be embarrassed about the bible reading. The bible is HARD to read! The book of mormon is so much more "flowing". The bible is way more choppy and not making sense. It makes it harder to get thru. You're going to pass me up, that's for sure. I got thru Genesis, but I don't remember how far. Not much.

That looks great!! Just think where you would be if you hadn't made those goals? Way to go!! Love you!

You're doing great, and I am so happy for you. I don't play scrabble, but grandpa and I play diamonos sometimes, I win a lot, but he does too. It is an old game and a lot of fun. You really are doing great with the bible reading, I think it is a hard book to read. Love you so much and I read the blog about the changes, and I think you're on the right track. I hate all those antibiotics and I have been on them a lot this past year as I have had so many infections in my colon last year. Hugs and kisses.

So great. It's so inspiring how determined you are to do all of this. To make goals and do them. I have been so pathetic with goals this year and ended up just making one, cause if I do more than that I don't get anything done. Anyway, love you!
