Making some (April) progress

Wow.  March and April went by in a flash.  Between work, getting our house listed and now under contract with a buyer, and trying to find a place for us to move to, life has been pretty hectic.  FUN! But hectic.

And amazingly, in April, I was able to actually put in some serious work towards my goals.

Here they are in case you forgot:
1. Sew one garment a month
2. Post an article a month
3. Run at least 2 5K races
4. Exercise 3 times a week
5. Have one date with my husband a month
6. Become better at expressing my curiosity.
7. Read 10 books

1.  No sewing happened--sewing stuff is all packed up in a storage unit.  I did download a few fun patterns though, including the Prefontaine Shorts and some Go-To baby leggings (which is a free patern, BTW).
2. Only my March goals re-cap, though I started another article at the end of March which I've been plugging away at...Maybe this month?
3. I ran the Temple University Alumni Weekend 5K...well part of it.  I had on way too many layers at the start (it was like 40 degrees and I naively didn't realize that running would make me hot--I know...) so I stopped after the first mile.  I ran a mile under 12 minutes, so I'm pretty excited about that.  Now to find one in the fall to register for!
4. I've been making a concerted effort to reach the 10K steps that my FitBit wants me to take each day, but I've been REALLY bad at making time to exercise.
5. We actually had two dates--and both were out of the house!  It was kind of awesome, and we did a really good job of not talking about just work and kids the whole time.
6. Bad job on the personal side here this month: I was able to offend at least 3 of my friends by not successfully expressing my surprise that they have grey hair--they're just so incredibly good looking and have such great hair that I never would have suspected there's a stylist behind that.  Because they're that awesome!  Nonetheless, I didn't say that...and pissed them off.  Sorry again, gals.  You're just so good looking...!
7.  I finally finished reading the same GD book I've been reading since September.  So 1 down, 9 to go.  I'm on to "The End of Your Life Book Club", and so far so good.  I may need some suggestions on quick reads if I'm going to make the most of these last seven months, though.

So...Progress on 4 1/2 out 7 overall.  I'll call that a win.
