Read to the boys every day. 

Work continues to be crazy and in an effort to get the boys to bed we’ve had to skip story time a couple nights. The boys HATE skipping story time. I’m doing my best! This whole working parent thing ain’t easy. Finally got a complete copy of The Nine Lives of Rotten Ralph (it was the book from the library that was missing the last 3 pages, and my referral dollars from here paid for a used copy!) and the boys love it.

Read 25 books (19/25) (not related to above)

Still listening to Claire Dewitt and the City of the Dead which I’m still loving. Still reading The Girls, and still waiting for Alexander Hamilton to be available again.

Reduce debt to 45% of credit available (the amount of debt I’m carrying is my biggest stressor)

I have a plan, I probably won’t get to 45% this year, but I will make a little progress. I was able to pay off a couple of big doctor bills that had been haunting me and there are a few more that I’m scared to open…

Get a mammogram

This week! Unless I have to change my appointment again.

Go to the gym 30 times (20/30)

I went on Monday and today. I wanted to go yesterday too, but did some day drinking instead. BALANCE.

15 minutes of standing for every hour sitting at work

I didn’t use my standing desk a single day this week. Oops.

Floss every day

Hmmm, I think I need to get back on this.

Eat vegetables one time a week (22/52)

I literally had to go drink a smoothie to check this one off because I couldn’t remember eating a single vegetable. (Once I thought long and hard about it, I remember I had some roasted carrots, but seriously, I am the worst when it comes to eating vegetables.)

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

My phone is having a hard time holding a charge. I wonder what it would be like to just… not charge it once it’s dead? HAHA. JK. That isn’t happening.

Get acupuncture 5 times (1/5)

Nothing new to report.

Go on 10 dates with Seth (6/10)


Go away without the kids with Seth


100 acts of resistance (41/100)

I didn’t do a lot this week. I really feel like there’s nothing I can do. But I will. I will start again.

1-26 can be found here.

27-35 here.

36-40 here.

41. Donated to a Kickstarter campaign to put on a conference for black writers and readers.
