The Monthly Herd-- January...with all the Cold

One month down! 11 to go!
Jan went crazy fast but also so dang slow since we were cooped up at home for so much of it due to below freezing temps, then snow, then rain. Rinse, freeze, repeat. lol

Blog Front:

  • I've blogged! I've gotten a good bit ahead which is nice for a change 
  • I'm nearly caught up on emails. Not so much on visits. I'm perpetually behind there. Sorry, yall!
  • I read 12 books in Jan. Not great. Not horrible. I've been busy. 
  • Netgalley-- holding strong at 96% (I need to write a few reviews)
  • Oh, yeah. The blog turned 6!

Home Front:
  • I've been couponing and couponing and couponing a little more. I'm having fun with it and was able to make a large donation in January which was awesome. I also applied for a position at the pantry so we'll see!
  • I've been packing up the house. Decided to take drastic measures and pretend like I was moving and any non-essential stuff...packed and stacked. So far I've not missed a single thing that's been removed. It's ridiculous. Most of it won't be coming back into the house. 

The blogging prompt challenge started. I got my first done (Winter) and had fun with it.

I had 12 reviews post in January. I enjoyed them all quite a bit as you can see. lol There were so many interesting set ups.

Total Reviews: 12
New to Me Authors: 1(Karen MacInerney)
Favorite Read: About That Kiss (but really all were good)
Towards Challenges: 12
