May Report Card

*Disclaimer: the formatting of this particular blog is driving me batty.  If it looks off, especially towards the end, I fully, completely, lay the blame at the feet of Blogger.com.

Today is a beautiful, sunny, 75 degree day.  And I'm a little surprised that it is the last day of May.  This month actually felt quite long to me.  There was very little on my calendar, and that makes for weeks that seem to drag by.  Plus it was either rainy and cool or windy every day this month, which made me forget that warm weather was just around the corner.

Nothing earth shattering to report.  I accomplished my May goal of planting garden pots four days ago.  Pumpkin Pie is reliably dry these days, but has not mastered the art of putting her poo in the potty.  Actually, it feels like she doesn't even have the desire to begin to master that art.  If I'm lucky, she'll simply poop in the diaper I still put her in overnight.  I'm not that lucky very often.  I refuse to put her back in diapers during the day, and she doesn't need pull-ups either.  If I put her in pull-ups, she feels free to wet them.  But she won't wet her underwear.  ::sigh::

On a brighter note, Honey Pie did in fact master the art of sleeping through the night.  She figured out how to flip over and sleep on her tummy, and now will sleep from about 7:15 to 7:00 the next morning.  Tomorrow night she is going to sleep in the big crib in her sister's room.  And for the first time in seven and a half months, we will not have a baby sleeping in our room at night.  It really feels like the dawn of a new season for us.

Here is my updated goal list:

January - Move.

February - Make a Homemaking Binder.

March - Send out my story.

April - Make a Felt Doll Set.

May - Plant Garden Pots.

June - Make a Sourdough Starter.

July - Make Homemade Laundry Detergent.

August - Make hair bows.

September - Make throw pillow covers.

October - Cook a recipe from a Rachael Ray cookbook.

November - Make crayon caddies.

June is a really busy month for us.  Pumpkin Pie's 3rd birthday is on June 2nd, so this is a party weekend for us.  My husband's birthday is June 11, our anniversary (and Father's Day this year) is on June 19, and my dad's birthday is June 27th.  That brings us right to my birthday, which is July 2, and the Fourth of July festivities.  June never has the problem of dragging by.

And finally, my reading list for the month (titles in red were books read for book reviews):
