October 2010 Recap

Now that October is officially gone, it's time to do my monthly recap - a way to help me keep track of what has gone on in our lives in one concise area. I'm a list person with a terrible memory and this has helped tremendously.
Katy the Scrapbook Lady has her version of her monthly round-up and I like how she describes it. "On the last day of every month, I post this little reminder to "roundup" your memories for the month. This simple little exercise will prompt you to take a few minutes and jot down the details of the ending month before the new one takes over. Look over your calendar, your blog posts, your photos, or whatever types of records you have kept throughout the month. I find that even reviewing my bank statement jogs my memory about what has happened in the month". And yes, it does help!
