Month in Review: May

Welcome to June. It’s the last month of school here. We go all month, though. All the way until the 29th. That means 3 more Mondays, 25 days, or 17 more school days.

On another note, we had frost last night! Frost in June! Welcome to Canada. Fortunately, I was smart enough to cover the veggie garden last night. My peas and beans are sprouting beautifully. The rest is taking their good old time. The peppers are safe inside the house. So is the maple tree.

41- The number of loses my Orioles have now. This is 15 more than April’s month in review. And they’re 23 games back from the first place team (whose name I refuse to allow grace the pages of my blog).

22 – Is not how old I’m feeling. It’s how many posts I wrote and published last month. Ahh… to be 22 again. No thanks.

52 – Of the 22 posts I wrote last month, Because Parenting is Funny was the most famous with 52 views. Which is ironic because I wrote that one back in March.

1,126 – This is how old I feel. Older than Yoda’s grandmother. It’s also the number of views I had last month. I was aiming for 1,500. I came as close as the Orioles.

628 – Visitors. I’m assuming they were all Earthlings. Wouldn’t it be cool to have intergalactic visitors? Not here on earth, just ones visiting my blog. I wonder what language they’ll speak.

349 – DW and I often ask “How much do you love me?” when we want the other to do a favor for us. “Love me enough to bring me my water?” “Love me enough to bring me a snack?” Y’all liked me 349. That’s enough to keep me writing for you.

195 – While it’s the number of questions I answer this morning before leaving for school, it’s also how many comments y’all left me last month. Since comments are worth 10 times what likes are, this means I like you 1,950. My blog, my rules.

49 – This is the number of countries my blog visited. It needs no plane, train, or automobile to get there. Or a boat. Or a Donkey. It just goes. The U.S., Canada, and U.K. were the top three most visited countries. Australia was 4th and India trailed by 3 in a close 5th place.

1,376 – This number is 45 more than last month. That’s more than 1 a day. That’s almost one a half followers a day! You half followers are an interesting bunch. Now That I’m gaining followers I need to figure out how to turn those followers into readers. My latest four followers are Liberty on the Lighter SideJulia Jewell – The MomsomniaWhat Defines Me – Mommy of 8 with Cancer and Jennifer Megson. Thanks for following and don’t be strangers. Come by anytime!

Do you think you have what it takes to make it onto this list? I bet you do.

Remember to find me on Twitter and Instagram for more fun and shenanigans!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find some new keto recipes to make for DW. Any suggestions? Do you have any favorites I should make? Meals and desserts are both acceptable!
