Dancing out of January 2022

January was the month of hard times, no snow and a lot of books. That is always a good time to the year. The books I mean.

The Numbers

Of the 14 books 3 books were sci-fi, 2 books were contemporary, 1 book was non-fiction and 8 books were fantasy .

I thought it would be a shame not to share the pondathon garden every month. So here we are. I didn’t double anything up. And I still need rewards for 2-3 books from January. But I like the look so far.

⌘ February was fairly on the hard side for various reasons. But at least the lockdown didn’t last for the schools and Merijn started school early in January again.

⌘ We finally had our appt for Merijn. They are currently putting off giving him the autism diagnosis until next year when they will look again. However we are making a treatment plan to look at what we can do now.

⌘ My psychologist left in December for a new job. That sucked. I liked her. But I got a new psychologist this January who is also the one who will be setting out the course with the other therapists I have (my old psycholosgist didn’t do that but the psychiatrist did until now_ and she is changing the course a bit. Which means that therapy has been really hard and heavy. I think it is a good thing but it is taking quite a bit from me. I’m talking exhaustion and tears.

⌘ I’m just forever sad that it doesn’t seem we’ll be getting real snow this winter season.

Not as amazing as earlier Scooby work and I’m never a fan of adding in familiar characters or celebraties. But okay to watch.

  1. Sounds like a great month overall! I hope the new therapist situation ends up working well for you. It can be really hard to change what was working in a situation like that, though I know that sometimes change is needed too.

    I doubled-up my reads in January for the Pondathon, but I’d started to feel guilty about it and so I think I might stop doing that, too. I think I’m going to start only using books for either the main reading rewards or for the special round reward. Your garden is looking great!

      1. Oh! I see what you’re saying. And yes, CW did say you could double up books. Honestly, I started looking at what my garden looked like, and how many books I expect to read this year, and just thought it would be too much… LOL. I didn’t realize people had used the rewards multiple times to fill up their gardens. That feels wrong.
