The July 2017 Wrap Up

Posted July 31, 2017 by Tina in Reviews / 15 Comments

A Monthly Recap is exactly what it sounds like, a recap of the month. I’ll be recapping books I read, posts of the month, a little bit of what’s going on outside the blog, and a little bit of what I have plan in the upcoming month. I’ll be linking up my monthly wrap to Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

This Month I Read:

A Break From Books And The Blog
  • July was a stressful month for me. I’m really hoping August will be a better month for me.
  • Little 1 began counseling back in May (I believe). He started behavior therapy this month and it has been a struggle. Some days I feel like I’m not doing the right thing. I feel like everything I do is wrong. I know this takes time but I can’t help but feel like I did something wrong. We’re also working on getting his ADHD under control. I’m nervous about school starting.
  • I’ve been feeling really down this past month. I’ve had trouble sleeping. I want to work on getting back into yoga and meditating. I also decide it was time to feel better about myself so I got my eyebrows done, I’m getting my hair cut tomorrow and I bought myself some make up. I was actually surprised that I found my shade in foundation on the first try.
  • Little 1 and 2 start school on August 3rd so we’ve been running around trying to get school supplies, uniforms, home visits and working on getting them on a good sleep schedule. I’m pretty nervous about Little 2 starting school she’s very shy and doesn’t take to people much.

My Goal for August is to:

How did July treat you? What was your favorite book?
