January recap

I can't believe it's already February!  They say time flies when you're having fun; I think it flies no matter what!  Unless you're stuck at home, sick--then it drags.
So, here's what January held for me: 
  • I kept up with my 365 photography project.  If you haven't checked in recently, go read about the ongoing adventures of Plaid here.
  • I went to see the Dead Sea Scrolls on exhibit at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
  • I ate at a haunted restaurant, and had a close encounter of some sort!
  • I contracted pneumonia, and was sick for two weeks.  Yuck--not one of my favorite things!
  • I joined a Relay for Life team.  If you aren't familiar with Relay for Life, go check it out here.  It's a great cause.  I participate not just for myself, but for those who I love that have had or do have cancer.
  • I watched five movies:  Pitch Perfect, Thor, Conan the Barbarian (2011), Iron Man, and The Last Airbender.
  • I read five books:  Trapped (The Iron Druid Chronicles), Death's Rival:  A Jane Yellowrock Novel, Infinity:  Chronicles of Nick, Cum Laude, Gossip Girl:  It Had to Be You.  Let me just say that Cum Laude is one of the worst books I've ever read.  Normally, I like the escapism that Cecily Von Ziegesar provides in her Gossip Girl series, but Cum Laude and It Had to Be You were off-shoots and early works not published until her other books became hits.  I see why now.  Oh well, win some, lose some.
  • I met with my CPA and financial advisor and all of mom's investments are now dissolved and/or transferred into my name.
  • I kept up with reading the Bible.  I am now in the new testament!
  • I've actually done a fair job of eating at home (of course, the two weeks of being sick helped!).
  • And, I've done pretty well saving money too!
I admit that I haven't gotten very far in finishing up decorating and organizing my house, or selling the other house.  I haven't organized my financial paperwork yet, and I haven't even been keeping my house particularly neat or clean.  But--I still have 11 months left of 2013 to make good on my resolutions, right?

How was your January?
