Peace Out 2020, You Will Not be Missed

Oh my goodness everyone 2020 is over!!!! I don't think I'm the only person that is excited to put this year in my rearview. I did have a lot of highlights this year, but the state of the world and the uncertainty of things has me ready to say a huge GOODBYE to 2020.

  • Got a free dishwasher (by accident).
  • Despite Covid and social distancing, I was able to spend some time with my family and in-laws.
  • I got some more bookish tattoos
  • I'm pregnant!
  • I read 477 books this year.
  • Bradley got me a bicycle!! It's yellow!!
  • Bradley started his new program and is loving it.
  • I finished watching Supernatural.
  • The freaking presidential election folks! I could not be happier about that!
  • I had a very allergic reaction to poison ivy.
  • Bradley did some amazing work outside in our yard and garden.
  • Since starting my profession, this is the first year I have been at the same job.
  • I got a lot of my baking goals met: made bread for the first time, pizza (dough and sauce), pretzels. whoopie pies, pies, cookies, and dinner rolls.
  • I changed my hair and got it shaved underneath. No one can tell but me, but it's been so much lighter and less nappy under there.

Top Books of 2020:

My Goals

1. Netgalley: My goal is to read 2 to 3 books a month. I read 33 books from my Netgalley shelf this year. Feels so good!

2. Edelweiss: My goal is to read 1 or 2 books from them for a month. I didn't do as well I don't think towards this goal that I wanted to do, but I read 9 books on my edelweiss shelf.

3. Reading my own books: My goal is 3-4 books a month from either my e-books or my bookshelves. I read 17 new books off of my own physical bookshelf and 6 new books from my e-book.

4. Cleaning Up My TBR Pile:

5. Comics: I read 140 comic books this year which feels so good. I had gotten so behind and I am finally caught up with the comics that are from this current school year.

6. Health & Exercise: I did some exercising this year and really focused on my health. I helped a lot with yard work until I got poison ivy on both of my legs and recovered from that. I really tried to stick with staying healthy this year since Bradley and I were planning on trying to get pregnant. My first trimester was a little rough on me since I was just tired all the time, but I made an effort to walk regularly at work and do chores around the house.

I have no idea what I want to do for 2021 in terms of my blogging goals and reading goals. Every day has been a rollercoaster and I have a lot of work and books I want to read, but yeah, I'm going to need to take some time to think about what I want to do on my blog this year.

Books I'm excited about:

How was everyone's 2020?
Are you just as ready to be done with this year?
What are you excited about in 2021?
