Somewhere, buried deep in a box in the garage, I have a five-year journal. This journal covers a span of five years (truth in marketing) and has a few lines on each day for you to record something about your day. I wasn’t always the best at remembering to actually write something that happened particular day, and I’m of the mindset that once I’ve missed a day on something, I may as well drop it completely. Nice, right?
When I ran across this linkup, I was intrigued. Basically, all you do is a write a sentence about each day in a month. Instant five-year journal! So, here are my sentences for August:
1 – Right now things seem super-stressful, but this is a season.
2 – Lunch with family and friends makes my day brighter!
3 – Charlotte’s sleep is awful right now, and I’m discouraged.
4 – Our microwave started sparking today – scary!
5 – Char, Koopa, and I stayed home all day, and it still scared me!
6 – New microwave today and a little shopping with Char and Mom.
7 – Monday again already…
8 – Feeling kind of blah and in a funk
9 – A little better today, but I still don’t feel like myself.
10 – I’m excited about teaching a class this fall!
11 – Friyay but one day closer to the end of summer…
12 – Cleaning, shopping, a wedding, and a Char sleepover!
13 – How come mornings go by so much faster when Char isn’t here?
14 – It feels like time is flying by this month.
15 – First day of in-service at work means meetings, friends, and free food!
16 – Really rough day at work today…
17 – Things were a little better today, thankfully.
