2015 was a pretty good year. I turned thirty-one in April two weeks after my middle child had her seventh birthday. My youngest became three in July. Mr. B and the oldest kid had November birthdays, they turned thirty-six and ten. I signed with the publisher Booktrope, visited family in Texas twice, attended my first book convention, and hosted friends/family in my home several times.
Looking back I can’t pick out many complaints for the year 2015. Now, let’s get to the books in review!

My goals for 2016 revolve heavily around my health and mental well-being. I think if I can do better with those then every other part of my life will benefit. Productivity and happiness should increase by a lot.
- Go to bed before midnight a minimum of four out of seven nights a week.
- Get up with Mr. B on work days. I get a lot more accomplished on those days.
- Keep up drinking water, stay with the decaf coffee, and enjoy more herbal tea.
- Exercise a minimum of four out of seven times a week.
- Eat less junk
- Learn to hula hoop.
