First up is the extra $2k toward the mortgage. We're at $570 so far. Yay!
Another goal I made progress on was reading 50 books this year (works out to about one per week). I actually read 8 books in January. What?!
- These is my Words - Diary entries that span about 20 years of a young woman's life in the Arizona territories. It was based on a true story, which always seems to make me more interested.
- Rats Saw God - The story of a teenage boy dealing with his parents' divorce and falling in love for the first time. Sounds so cliché but it wasn't.
- Ptolomy's Gate - The final book in the Bartimaeus trilogy. And I was happy to see my predictions about Nathaniel were correct ;)
And speaking of books, Mr. G finished listening to Harry Potter, so we decided to read The Tales of Beedle the Bard together since it played such an important part in the final HP book. It's a collection of short fairy tales so I'm going to read a little aloud each day. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for the library!
On to February! How are your goals going?
