Keep It Together: August 2020
Okay, but seriously – is anyone really keeping it together these days? I’m doing my best! I wasn’t entirely sure what to post about for this month, but I finally updated my planner a bit. Nothing too crazy, but I want to use it more often and at least decorate because that makes me happy when looking back.
This is one half of my monthly calendar, and as you can see, there isn’t a ton going on. I’ve had lots of different doctors, but I seem to be the on the right track health- wise (*fingers crossed*) If you see my Ugh sticker, that’s because I had ANOTHER Covid test. This time I had to do it myself, so it wasn’t as high up, but it still really sucked! I would like to not have to do another one…ever again.
The reason I had it though is because I was supposed to have a procedure the next Monday to have fluid removed from around my right lung. They wanted to test for infections. I go through all that just to get there on Monday and have them do an ultrasound and realize there isn’t enough fluid to safely take it out. Which, yay, not a lot of fluid, but boo, going through all of that. I have a stress test next month to rule out underlying heart and lung issues, but for now, I’m on some different medicines and I seem to be doing better. Here’s hoping the really bad pain stays away – they are thinking the pain is just inflammation from the blood clots.
So yes, that’s my health update, and what I’ve mostly been focused on this month!
Another thing I added to my planner is my 2020 Summer Bucket List. It’s on the page right before my monthly calendar. I already have some things listed for my Fall Bucket List in September, but for now, you’re just seeing what I’ve already posted on the blog. I thought it would be fun to collect my lists here though and I was able to add some fun stickers, which is always a plus! Leslie is actually having a bucket list update tomorrow, so I’m about a day early!
Swim at Night – yes!
Beach Read by Emily Henry – not yet, but I still hope to soon.
Fire Pit/S’mores – Yes, I have done this.
Hamilton – Only the once, but it still counts!
Sweet Magnolias- Yes, I watched the first season and it’s so good. Big cliffhanger though!
Paint My Nails – I did. I hope to do another color in the next day or so.
Haircut – I finally got it cut and thinned out a ton. It was seriously needed. I lost about three inches length-wise.
Netflix Party – I totally forgot about this one – need to plan a Netflix Party with someone soon.
BlendJet Smoothie – This is a sort of, because I did try and make one, but it didn’t really turn out. I’ll be making more soon though!
Melting Pot To-Go – Yes, I did this earlier in the summer.
Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner– Not yet, but again, I still plan to read this one soon.
My 13th Blogoversary- This month is my blog’s 13th anniversary, and I haven’t done anything yet. I’m thinking some sort of giveaway by the end of the month so keep an eye out! Right now, I have some other fun giveaways going on though so check out the right hand side of my blog. I’m trying to keep all giveaways there so they are easier to find. I’m going to have LOTS of fun Fall/Halloween giveaways next month too. I cannot wait!
Total: 7 1/2 out of 12, which isn’t bad at all!
