Month in Review: December 2020

 
All thing considered, December was actually a really fun month!  My sister organized a virtual crafting day, where a bunch of us got on Zoom and made wood sign boards together.  We also Zoomed with our nephews in Oklahoma and watched them open their Christmas gifts!  We got our first big snowstorm of the season (actually, the biggest we've gotten in probably a couple years), but of course our snowblower broke and we had to shovel out our long driveway - ugh!  We had an afternoon of cookie making at my mom's house, and my niece loved decorating with all the different colored sprinkles.  Tom finally found out that he got the job he applied for within his company back in October, so we went out to dinner to celebrate.  We spent Christmas day at my mom's with my sister, and Tom's parents came over to our house the next day.  Lastly, we went to the movies for the first time since February - we saw Wonder Woman 1984, which wasn't as good as the first movie, but it was fun to be back in a theater.  We'll probably try to stay pretty close to home for the next month or two, so it was nice to get out a couple times this month.

  1. Oh wow, you read a lot! I really need to get to My Calamity Jane. I'm not into western stories at all, but I love the other Jane books!

  7. HARRY POTTER! Always lovely to see it at other blogs. In my classroom, we're all big fans and I've read the first book out loud, we had so much fun.

    I received the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated version for Christmas, I felt like I was 8 y/o again!!

    Happy New Year ^^

  13. I wish I could go the theaters. I used to go a lot with my brothers and my cousin so it's frustrating not to go anymore. I think I'm going to wait until Summer honestly to go back. This new strain is worrying me even if I go to work and get groceries all the time too. My brother watched the new Wonder Woman and he hated it so I'm going to skip it lol.
    You read so much! Did you like I Was Told It Would Get Easier?

    1. We really missed going to the movie theater! We probably won't go again until the spring, though, since there's not really anything coming out that we want to see.

      I actually really loved I Was Told It Would Get Easier! I wasn't sure it was going to be for me, but it was so good!

    2. Ooh, yay! I was iffy about her last book but I'll give I Was Told It Was Easier a try. It feels more relatable.
