Still trying. Nothing yet :( I got kittens to compensate.

7. Save Money: 
$300. Vacation will spend it, but we sold our old phones so that will restart the savings.

8. Watch More Movies:
Pennies From Heaven (1981)

9. Improve at Work: 
My case load increased. I am usually now around 100. I managed to see as many as will show up.

10. Take a Real Vacation: 
It's vacation time. A staycation where we go on day trips and have one overnight!

11. Try Something New: 
Why is it whenever I think of something new I think food? We tried Fuddrucker's.

12. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: 
Always re-using containers for leftovers. We gave a bunch of containers to the father in-law for his plants. We seem to have less and less trash with the two recycling bins for plastics and cans, plus a couple containers full of soda cans and one for glass. The husband has been good at burning the paper and cardboard when the container gets full.

We also recycle egg cartons. The neighbor fills them up with eggs. I also recycle plant containers and replanted house plants when they outgrew their container this month.

13. More home improvement: 
I cleaned up the front porch by moving some things around. Still saving towards the big projects. They need to happen. The husband keeps bringing home free cups from restaurants & I need more cabinet space.
