I Pity the Fool…

…who thinks I won’t accomplish something good this month.

I’m not going to lie, I have some high hopes for April. I plan to finish the three books I’m currently reading and I’d like to read at least two others. The ones to finish are Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche (on audiobook), Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay (on the Kindle app on my phone), and Lean In by Sheryl Sandburg (in hardcover). I have a couple of Library books to tackle too, but I’d also like to knock out at least one more book for the TBR Pile Challenge. We’re through three months of the year and I’ve only completed one of my challenge books–Lean In will be my second.

I’m also looking forward to improving my overall health a bit this month. I’ve not been treating my body well enough in many ways, so I’m going to focus on improving my diet, drinking more water, and getting more sleep. Once I improve those things, I’ll add more exercise into the equation too.

I’m always saying that I want to write more letters, but I never actually do it. This month though… well, I’m mailing a postcard tomorrow. This is a project I need to get my kids involved in too.

There’s other things I’ve been thinking of doing in April, but I’m trying not to set myself up for failure by overloading myself. My main focus will be on reading a few books, being more well, and sharing my life with friends and family through writing. And so, I’m finishing my last few sips of water and heading off to bed on time. Maybe that will make the fight tomorrow a smidge easier.
