Read to the boys every day. 

I missed one day because I went out for drinks with co-workers. This week’s favorites were Over the River and Through the Wood and Night Animals.

Read 25 books (9/25) (not related to above)

I finished Feed and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. So, I liked Feed, but it was a little too close to home for my personal science fiction reading during the current state of affairs preference. Daughter of Smoke and Bone, OH MY GOD. I wanted it to last forever, but also wanted to know what happens and there are two more and I immediately requested them from the library

15 minutes of standing for every hour sitting at work

Still not working. 2 more weeks.

Floss every day

Floss, floss, floss. I missed one day because I went out for drinks and got home kind of drunk and didn’t give af. I flossed in the morning reflexively. I might have made a new habit, guys!

Eat vegetables one time a week (8/52)

Smoothies 4 LYFE.

Break phone addiction (phone off at 10pm at night and away when I’m not taking pictures or checking email at home)

You guys.

Get acupuncture 5 times (1/5)

Nothing new to report here.

We were here. Together. Not away.
