Like every other month, February has seemed to go by in a blur and, no, it’s not because this month is two days shorter than the rest.

It was a productive month though. I got a lot of my own work done. I was able to keep myself busying without killing myself.

I saw my friends (virtually) a few times. Two friends, my sister, and I found a website where you can play games with one another virtually so we got to play Code Names, Scrabble, and Pictionary together. We also made it work to play Scattergories with one another too.

I also virtually got together with my Dungeons and Dragons group, which was a lot of fun as well.

My cousins slept over quite a bit this month too. It was good to hang out with them. My family and I played cards together a few nights, we’ve watched movies, and, of course, WandaVision.

I was fairly motivated throughout the month which was certainly a plus. Overall, February was great.

What about you? How are you doing? Did any highs or lows happen during your month?

Let’s get through this together.

  1. I’m glad February was a fun and productivemonth for you.

    February was a mostly good month for me. I have to agree with you that it went by rather quickly. I’m pleased to say though that I also have to agree it was a rather productive month. We got a lot of the unpacking and organizing we needed to do done (most of what isn’t done yet is because we don’t have the shelves or other storage options sorted for them yet). Plus, I learned a new skill (I learned to crochet) and attended my first ever virtual crafting session via Zoom a couple of days ago.

    On a less positive note, our Westie, Lilie, has started having issues with skin irritation again (she’s had issues with it before… It’s a common thing for Westies) and seems to have reached the point where she’ll now need to be on medication to control it for the rest of her life. I’m kindof having a hard time with the news. Not so much because it’s an issue – Lilie’s responded well to treatment in the past, and most of the time it’s controllable if you keep treating it, once you find the right thing to do so – but because it was an unusually agressive form of the same issue that resulted in me losing my previous Westie, Kero, and there’s a little part of me that’s convinced this means Lilie will soon follow, so all I can think is, “But she’s not even quite four yet… We can’t lose her yet,” (she’s four next month).

  2. It has been a fast month lol. I can’t believe it’s nearly over haha.

    Sounds like a great month, my friend! Glad you got to hang out virtually w/friends, play games with them, and get a lot of work done too! That’s awesome :D.

    Glad you got to hang out with family too. How are you liking WandaVision, my friend?

    Sweet. Glad you had a nice month.

    As for me, it’s been a roller coaster. Life’s been pretty hectic. I have been overthinking at times too. But it’s getting better. I’ve been taking more time to read lately too, so that’s helped. Hoping to read a lot next month too. Also drawing a bunch too. :).
