May Goals

Is it just me, or did April seem to drag?  Anyway, how did I do on my goals last month?  Eh, pretty bad.....
Write Ch. 6 of Heart Song Nope; didn't even open it
Lose 5 pounds (242...I'm going the wrong way!) Lost one pound, so yay me!  This after packing on 5 more, so mission SORT of accomplished, ha ha!
Watch SE7 Game of Thrones  Tried; disc wouldn't load.
Watch SE2 Stranger Things on NetFlix Watched Ep 2.
Convince family to pay for 2019 trip to Washington DC (need to sign up by end of month) Child decided 'no'.  Damn it.....
Buy inventory of Arbor U 1-6  Proof copies, check:)
Good sales at Kentucky Author's Fair  Sold 4:)
Good sales at Dale signing  Sold 1:)
Finish cleaning out magazines and back room of brown house Temporarily halted while we empty our storage unit.  DID finally haul 3 boxes of mags to the recycle place!
Finish cleaning out green house Nope
Dispose of junked appliances Nope
Contact Helping His Hands or Habitat Restore about doors/windows/carpet HHH, check:)

Health:  Finally went to Orthopedic Dr about pain in my right thigh and back.  Diagnosis:  Possible bursitis and pinched nerve.  MRI was scheduled then cancelled, due to insurance only paying for MRI if I'd been injured in an accident.  Guess standing for 9 hours didn't qualify.  Hoping one week of steroids helps the hip.  At least I can still function....pain is more of a nuisance anyway.

            Print:  7
        E-book:  3
             DNF:  2, but moved farther down the pile to try again.
