I have to say, I’m surprised at how January turned out. I had one expectation of how the start of 2020 would go, and I was totally wrong! It’s been one situation after another. I’ve quickly become familiar dealing with our health insurance company and office billing personnel. I believe there’s at least 3 more appointments in March alone!

I wrote about my 2020 goals and I feel I’ve achieved the goal of taking my vitamins and using my planner consistently. I’m doing better on drinking more water, too. However, I’ve made little to no progress on taking photos again or on my spiritual practice. I just get so overwhelmed, almost like I’m a newbie to everything! I know it’s a mental thing but it’s super frustrating.

On a more positive note, after a year and a half I finally got my hair cut and colored. I cut off 14 inches! For the color, I went with purple, a variety of light and darker blues, and a little bit of pink. I don’t do too much pink as it fades the fastest.

So back to my planner, I’ve really been enjoying my Erin Condren Life Planner! Even though I’m not a particularly busy person, it helps me track all of our appointments, meal plans, daily vitamins, and I sometimes go back to fill in tidbits about each day as a sort of “memory planner” situation. I even track my migraine days each month in the notes section. I love to decorate each week with stickers. So many stickers!

Lastly, I have been without a laptop for over a year (long story), and I am finally able to purchase a new one. Now, I’ve always used Windows OS on all of my machines, laptop and what I build for gaming. I’ve dabbled with Linux here and there. But this time… I think I want to purchase a MacBook Pro! I have limited experience with the macOS, mainly back in my Geek Squad repair days, and I think it would be a fun learning challenge for me. Since I love teaching my kids computer software, operating systems, and hardware, I see this as a learning experience for them as well.

Plus I love how it’s such an integrated ecosystem. I have an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Apple TV, and it all is interconnected. I love that idea! The new MacBook Pro 16″ is really appealing to me.

Do you use Windows or macOS? What do you think about it? Also, let me know in the comments how your January went and how your February has been so far!
