Just when you think you're on top of your schedule - something happens to knock you off the 'to do' pile.
Ah well, such is life and all it curious twists and turns; it's vagaries are like the tentacles of an octopus - invariably pulling me away from my dream schedule.
But I'll talk more about that later - for now - what DID happen in March -
Not much - seriously, my life is pretty quiet But here it is, such as it is.
Successfully cut back on my time on Goodreads - a sort of check! I did cut back (I even went for a WHOLE week without Goodreads - and LOOK, I'm still alive!) but then I slipped back into the over indulging.
Signed up for Camp NaNo. Am I crazy?
And I TOLD MYSELF last November that I would NEVER do another Nano unless I was THOROUGHLY AND COMPLETELY PREPARED.
Did I remember that? Did I prepare? Did I?
Of course I prepared! To not prepare would be stupid.
The Pinterest monster wandered by and snagged me - Help! - and I added tons of lovely new pins to story boards as well as my other random boards - so if you are on good terms with the Pinterest monster (another words - he'll let you leave his cave instead of just eating you alive on the spot) then go ahead and check them out!
After setting a goal of reading 64 books in 2017 - I finished it by mid March.
My grandmother visited us for two weeks and we were super busy during her stay!
My grandmother loves music and I played the piano a lot while she was here - more regularly than I have in a while - it was good to get so much practice in!
Just KIDDING! I did not play rock n' roll. My grandmother loves beautiful old vintage songs and show tunes, and I do too. :)
Participated in a book blog tour for the first time!
Announced my official website www.allisontebo.com.
Reached 15 subscribers on my YouTube channel and 33 subscribers on my blog!
Did my very first vlog! Well, I did a promo for The Reluctant Godfather - but that doesn't really count - that was a promo - THIS was a vlog.
Went to our libraries bi-annual book sale. I kid you not, there must be AT LEAST 50,000 books there. I'm not exaggerating.
Library book sales are my favorite form of exercise - yes it IS a thorough cardio workout - and one of my favorite things to do - although it is also quite stressful. It REALLY bothers me that other people attend these sales. it downright disturbs me when I see people walking away with books that I WANTED.
It panics me when I see people run past me, literally put an arm down on the table and sweep books or DVDs into a huge plastic wagon. It makes me want to do something desperate.
Discovered two new flavors of ice cream! Yes - THIS IS BIG NEWS! Stumbling across this stupendous flavor was like tripping over a gold nugget in an field of flowers - flowers are nice, but gold nuggets are better.
