Checking In - AAM. Challenge 40
I'm a little behind in doing this page but it has been on my mind since Steph posted the challenge! I made a page at the start of the year about my goals for 2012, so this was a perfect challenge for me to check back in on those. I would be lying if I said I didn't have to refer to the first scrapbook page to see what my original goals were. *Ahem*
Thanks for looking!

Journaling: I love having goals and always need something to work towards in my life. I am loving the fact that 2012 is humming along, just as it should be. Life is good, very, very good. Less Clutter: We are getting there slowly after a recent skip bin of rubbish was taken away. Next stop, clothing donations! New Recipes: I am doing really well at trying new recipes. Weíve probably been eating too well since the weather has cooled off. I am not doing so well at not buying cooking magazines. I compromised with myself and settled on only 1 magazine per month. So far so good. Journaling: I think I am more obsessed with the story than ever. Iíve taken it to another level though and more and more want to record the everyday. I think my list of pages to do is longer than the time I have to do them. Read More: A big, fat fail here. I had good intentions and downloaded a bunch of books to my kindle but I have really struggled in finding time to read them. I manage a few pages here and there. Slow and steady wins the race I guess. It doesnít help when thereís nothing really tickling my fancy to read at the moment. Date Nights: Are not happening. We have to be patient here until the separation anxiety phase passes. We regularly go out for lunch as a family and that is enough for me at the moment. Although I would be lying if I didnít say I canít wait until Lincoln is past this stage! Move More: I started off so well and then I got derailed by the ovary scare. Then my thyroid took a nose dive and had the nerve to remain low. And now I have had tonsillitis for two weeks with no end in sight. Although I have been trying to watch what I eat and my thyroid must be going back to normal because I am losing all of the weight it made me put on recently. A plus right there.
