Memories of the Month {1.2021}

By | February 4, 2021

Memories of the Month - Here's a great idea for wrapping up the month with a set of questions to remember how your last month with. I love going back and reading through what happened throughout the years.

This month I was happy about: good medical news.

This month I was sad about: family members getting COVID.

Here’s my rating system for entertainment:
♥ ♥ = Love it! A must read/see!
♥ = Really good! Highly recommend.
✓ ✓ = Good, not great
✓ = Not much to talk about
X = Awful. Total waste of time


Movies I watched were: Don’t think I watched any movies

TV Shows I watched were:
Brothers and Sisters (ABC App) ♥ ♥ finished the show. So sad it’s over.
Southern Charm (Bravo App) finished Season 7 ♥ ♥
The Good Place Season 1 and beginning of 2 (Netflix) ✓ ✓ – watching with Alex as he re-watches.
Some YouTube

Rob and I watched:

Podcasts I listened to:
I listened to a lot this last month!

  • Driving the Green Book ♥ – finished this season
  • Tom Brown’s Body – ♥ listened to the entire season
  • The Apology Line – ♥ listened to the first couple of episodes. They are still coming out each week.
  • Vanished – True Crime podcast from pretty recent missing people cases.
      • Episode 1 X (couldn’t finish – not good)
      • Episode 264 ♥
      • Episode 265 ♥
      • Episode266 ♥
  • Paper Ghost – Episode 4 – 5 – ✓ ✓ – this one I can only listen to in small doses. Can be pretty disturbing.
  • Pillows and Beer – Episode 1 – ♥ Brand New Podcast If you watch Southern Charm, this podcast is done by Craig and Austen from that show.
  • Old Fashioned on Purpose – Episode 10 ✓ – Sometimes I feel like she just says the same thing over and over again.

My favorite song this month was:

What I remember about work was: great group of new hires!

A lesson I learned this month was: that people need reminders.

A friend and I: haven’t done a darn thing.

My favorite pic that I took was:

2021-01-28 12.11.36-1

The favorite thing I cooked was: I made a new stir fry that I mentioned in my WUW post. I’m going to make it again and then I’m going to try and post it. So good!

Drew: turned 23. I still can’t believe I’m that old.

Alex: had a rough end of the month. Not making wise choices and making Rob and my life much more stressful.

Rob: is fighting COVID right now. He says the worst part is his cough and the weirdness that comes with not be able to taste or smell.

The thing I’ll remember most from this month was: COVID and the difficulty of parenting sometimes.

In case you missed my “The Weekly” Posts, here’s the ones I wrote for January:
12.27.2020-1.16.2021 – Catch Up Post

Look back at last month.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the parenting challenges and the covid cases. I hope Rob recovers soon. Take care.

      Yeah, I don’t see how I don’t have it. Or maybe I do now, but am just asymptomatic.

  2. Laura Bambrick

    I hope Rob gets better soon! Parenting is so hard! I know the pandemic is making it hard for me to be more patient, too so it all compounds!

    1. Lysha Post author

      Yes! I believe this situation is worse because of the pandemic! Not to say it may have happened otherwise, but bored teenagers is not a good thing!

    I LOVED Brothers and Sisters and was so sad when I got to the end of the series too. I just began watching Modern Family now that Hulu has all the seasons and not just the latest one. Having never seen a single episode before I really wanted to start from the beginning. Sorry to hear that COVID hit your family but am very glad that everyone seems to be doing OK with it and that you didn’t catch it.

      It was so many seasons and so many episodes, but I loved them all. When you’re binging a show its weird how attached you can get to the characters.
