Read to the boys every day. 

I missed one night to go out with my co-workers from my last job. The Cat in the Hat Comes Back and The Value of Believing in Yourself (Louis Pasteur) are the favorites this week.  I LOVE that they call the Louis Pasteur book “the scientist book” and I love that they like the story. The Cat in the Hat Comes Back is a sequel that doesn’t hold a candle to the original, but whatever, they love it.

Read 25 books (15/25) (not related to above)

I finished Ghettoside on audio and it is heart wrenching. I also finished Dreams of Gods and Monsters, and I liked it, but I felt like it strayed from the things I liked about the first two in a weird way.  I’m still reading Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen on my phone, but I’ve lost steam on it big time.

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

I deleted Twitter and Facebook from my phone. That has TOTALLY made a difference in the way I use it. I’m also really putting my phone away at night, I don’t make it at 10 every night, but generally, I get at least 30 minutes to an hour of no electronics because I’m reading in bed before I go to sleep.
