2. Reading. I was able to finish two books in July (well I have about 2 more chapters of Shepherding a Child's Heart). They were completely opposite in style, but both very much enjoyed.
3. Sudoku. I love this game and I'm getting better by the day. It gives me something to do while the kids are relaxing for the evening (and not paying attention to me, but to the TV). I'm almost ready to move onto the challenging puzzles I think!
4. Dinner with Friends! As you've read, we were able to get together for dinner twice with friends and it was just great. I love having people around.
