July brought me back to my blog, officially! I did some reflecting this summer and decided I want to find more things to be joyful about in my life, and reading and my blog brought me happiness and contentment. I was a little under the weather with gastro issues for about two weeks, which prompted me to demand a future appointment with a gastroenterology clinic. I foresee another endoscopy and colonoscopy in my future. We have also been doing all the things to get rid of fleas. Poco seemed to pick up just a few, so it was easy to get under control. I am having to save up for a $4300 transmission replacement after already sinking $1300 into my car with replacements and maintenance in June. It’s a CVT, so there is no rebuilding – it’s all or nothing. I’ve got a little less than half from my summer school pay. I squandered my last few weeks of summer staying up late and sleeping in while re-watching Downton Abbey. And of course the end of the month brought all manner of technology PDs to have a leg up for this coming school year. Lastly, Baby A is doing great and is now 14 weeks. I’m still convinced it’s a boy and will be a big baby.
I read these books this summer (June and July).

I think I’m going to forgo any previous challenges I used to participate in until the new year. I have set a Goodreads goal of 12 books for the past couple of years, and I have met that goal this year. Most of the books were read during our Texas Snowstorm Shut-Down in February when we had no power, heat, and water for a week or more. I spent the time snuggled with the dogs underneath 4 or so comforters in bed the entire week. Plenty of reading time!
At the time of this posting, I am reading One for the Rogue by Manda Collins and I Thought You Said This Would Work by Ann Garvin. Then I think I’ll pick up these three.
