Sentence a Day : August 2017

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.

18 – TGIF, y’all.

19 – Shopping fun with Mom and Charlotte

20 – More shopping and Char ate a ton of food at Target!

21 – The eclipse was so cool!

22 – All day training has me feeling cross-eyed.

23. Will’s first day of classes and it started with Algebra.

24 – First day of teaching went well!

25 – Char went to Mimi’s, and we had a date night

26 – Day at the fair was fun…but hot.

27 – Really rough night that makes me ask questions like “how many cats is too many cats?” (Uh, I have no idea what I meant by this!)

28 – Char slept better tonight, and Will made some fantastic fajitas!

29 – Another battle to get her to bed…

30 – Dentist appointment today, and there were no cavities

31 – Lots of rain and flooding tonight, and it’s a little scary!

Linking up with Leslie

  1. Hello, Amber! Welcome to the S-a-D group.

    I am really enjoying keeping track of the days this way.

    Your little Char is so cute!!! I loved shopping days with my girlies and my mom…those are wonderful times!!! Thanks for rekindling happy memories!

    1. I love the name of your blog! That’s what my house is currently covered in! 😉

      Thank you for the compliment! She’s cute and already knows how to work her cuteness. We’re going to be in trouble!!

  2. Hey friend! Sounds like you are struggling a bit. I hope that you enjoyed a restful weekend and are feeling more like yourself as we head into a new week. I can’t remember and have a dreadful memory so might forget again, but are you a teacher? If so, I can relate to the overwhelming feelings of beginning a new school year…meetings, inservice, more requirements added to our plates with every new year.

    Make sure you carve out a little time for yourself. Maybe a few minutes after writing your sentence for the day? Maybe a soak in the tub? A walk around the block alone?

    Hang in there. It’s fall! Cooler temps, fun clothing choices and pumpkin flavored everything. Life will get better.

    1. Thank you for your sweet words! I’ve definitely been struggling lately! I’m an academic librarian, and I volunteered to teach a section of the required class that all of the freshmen have to take. Ack!!

      I do need to take more time alone. I like the idea of a walk around my neighborhood, especially if the weather stays cool like it is now.

      I CAN’T WAIT FOR FALL!! I saw an ad for pumpkin spice popcorn and realized that we live in a truly great time. Ha!

I love talking to people! Leave a comment and let's chat!
