A Sentence A Day~ February

It is hard for me to fathom that February is gone and that we are close to finishing up the first quarter of 2017.  The time isn't just flying, it is jetting faster and faster.  I barely have a handle on my days. Still, I like to spend a bit of time each day reflecting over what happened and my response to it. That's when A Sentence A Day comes in, a journal where you only write one sentence for each day!

For past editions of the A Sentence A Day journaling, check out these links: MayJuneJuly,  AugustSeptember,  October NovemberDecember and January 2017. 

February 1.  It was a wonderful time with friends, eating lunch in a new spot across the river, delighting in one another's company and companionship.

February 2.  Sometimes I do better when it is just me and my sacred space, filling the time with thoughts of the past.

February 3.  Driving to Chicago and spending time with my husband on heavy things like, do we want to become expats and move to Panama.

February 4.  In Chicago with my daughter, enjoying the coldly brisk day by sightseeing everything Ferris Bueller.

February 5.  Leaving Chicago is bittersweet, finding out all over again that my child is fully capable of living her own life without my influence.

February 6.  My head is going to explode and when it does, the world will be covered with the slime from Ghostbusters.

February 7.  Missing work when you work from home is just weird.

February 8.  My college class went well, even though I could barely talk above a whisper.  

February 9.  Spoke to a doctor about the inflammation in my body, and while it is not good, it is not unrepairable.

February 10.  This crazy busy day ended up with me getting what amounts for half a haircut.

February 11.  A day to do whatever we wanted, and it ended up being going to four different grocery stores!

February 12.  A beautiful time at the St. Louis Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Gardens.

February 13.  Our PEO meeting was so much fun and I enjoyed giving each member a little heart shaped nail file from the company 31.

February 14.  Our Valentine's celebration was an exchange of gifts, Bob telling me he's not doing cards anymore, and a wonderful meal of steak, steamed broccoli and sweet potato steak fries. 

February 15.  An earnest discussion about our sacred places in our book study today is making me wonder where mine are.

February 16.  It's my sister's birthday and I always like to figure out some fun thing to do...this year I sent cards and posted baby pictures of her on Facebook, which never gets old!

February 17.  We've cut the cord and now replaced it: our TV service expired and now we have Directv, which I never thought I'd have.

February 18.  At my DAR meeting we had the CAR kids come and give a presentation on their year, which is an annual event, tooooo cute!

February 19.  It was 70 degrees today and we got to do a golf cart ride in February!!

February 20.  I spent the day with my colleagues in Columbia, talking about the merits of teaching and what good teaching looks like. 

February 21.  I spent the morning with a school talking about their data and their rock star teaching (!) and the evening with my PEO sisters having dinner.

February 22.  I had my second appointment with my doctor and I have lost 6 pounds, not as fast as I would like but down is nothing but GOOD.

February 23.  Bob and I saw a delightful student production of The Heathers: A Musical at Lindenwood University.

February 24.  We joined our neighbors for a night of Trivia and it was so much fun, even if I had to ignore the brownies, shrimp, roll ups and seven layer dip to eat my cauliflower hummus.

February 25.  I enjoyed a lunch meeting with my Delta Kappa Gamma ladies, whom I do not get to see enough of.

February 26.  I loved learning how to decorate a cake like a pro today at my neighbor's house, who is a pastry chef for a wonderful bakery!

February 27.  My meeting with my PEO sisters left me feeling sad about my leadership, which is an unusual feeling for me and something I must take time to analyze.

February 28.  The last day of February was spent on the road to Columbia, where I was able to talk to my mom for 40 minutes on the way to Columbia and 50 minutes on the way home!

February was a good month, but I am looking forward to March, as Spring draws closer and the fun of gardening begins!  If you decide you would like to do A Sentence A Day journaling, please let me know, I would love to come and read!
