February 2007 Round-Up (See The Roundup for details)
What books and/or magazines did I read this month? Magazines! I love magazines. BUT, I am trying to cut back. This past month, I read Mary Englebreit's Home Companion, Creating Keepsakes, Guideposts and Rachel Ray's Everyday.
As for books, I read "The Memory Keeper's Daughter". Loved it!
What movies and/or tv shows did I watch this month? We Net-Flixed: " Little Man, Thank You for Smoking, Shopgirl, How to Eat Fried Worms, Little Miss Sunshine, Lady in the Water, What's Eating Gilbert Grape and The Ant Bully.
At a late matinee (Friday, February 23) Amanda, Jerry, Kayla and I went to see "The Messengers". It was an edge of your seat thriller for us. We liked it.
What special days did I celebrate and how? Well, there was Valentine's Day. We had cupcakes. It was my boss's birthday and I brought in bagels and cream cheese. Our little Jade was born on February 12.
What illnesses or health concerns did we have in February? No sicknesses, thank goodness. Amanda had her eye exam and we got her a new supply of contact lenses. Took Kayla for new tennis shoes and am having a lift put in the left shoe.
What fun things did I do with my friends and/or family? Took photos of the girl's sled-riding. We had Kayla's friend Dominique stay over. Hmm, just the usual. The theater. Dinner out a couple of times. A lot of shopping this month since the tax refund came. That's about it.
What new foods, recipes or restaurants did I try in February? I can't think that we went anywhere new. We ate at
Market and our good old stand-by Eat-n-Park. I ate at Aladdin's. I taught Amanda to make Lazagna. Boston
What special or unusual purchases did I make? Nothing unusual. New clothes, a bathing suit and 3 pair of shoes for Kayla; contact lenses for Amanda; my usual fill of books and magazines for me.
What were this month’s disappointments? My inability to get it together and get organized!
What were my accomplishments this month? Paying A LOT of bills. One more major debt ($450 pd; bal: $1000). The whole family (10 of us) agreeing to where we would vacation and the rental home we would stay in.
Anything else noteworthy to record about February? Jade's birth. Jayme and Amber moving back in together making Ben one happy little boy. Paying a lot of bills and being almost completely debt free. All that is left is a $1000.00 bill and the final $150 to my boss for the car he sold me.
