Progress report: month 19 (January 2012)

Sometimes it feels like I'm not getting
anywhere, though not for lack of effort! 
January was one of "those" months
when it seemed like everything was a
moving target.   D#2 was home for the
first few weeks, then, within 48 hours:
I took her back to school, D#1 arrived,
and I drove HER back to DC.   At the
end of that week, I was off to Dallas
and it took the next week to get my
bearings being alone at home again!   
Settling back in and trying to focus.  

Completed: 
49. Read 60 books (including 30 I own and 10 from library) Already finished
      subcategories but read 60th in January!
60. Eat at restaurants with 3 new ethnic cuisines. Ate ostrich steak in Dallas 
      [half-credit!]
