Breaking it in today!
I’m a well trained monkey. I’m used to talking about what I’ve been doing on Sundays. So here goes…
The weather has been nice here, until yesterday. It rained almost all day, which bummed the kids out. I had promised we’d go to the playground park to throw the football (son) and shoot hoops (daughter). Of course rainy day meant a movie, and son allowed daughter’s choice of MONSTER HIGH: FREAKY FUSION.
I was hoping this morning’s weather would be better, so we could go to the basketball court today. It isn’t/wasn’t. However, the rain doesn’t stop our other plans. We’re going to the Garfield House in Mentor (Ohio) this morning. That’s Garfield the president, not the cat. After that we’ll go to Steak and Shake and then the comic shop for issue #4 of JEM. And tonight we use the grill for the very first time!!! (Grilling rain or shine.)
But, enough life talk. These are usually about what I did with my “goals.” So, here is some jabber for my typical “goals” stuff.
Since the ROWnd ended, I’ve continued to work on ALCHEMY. I have the deep details for chapter 3 done (ahead of schedule) and have redrafted two pages of the chapter thus far.
I’ve ironed out not just family routine, but fitness routine. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I’ll continue going to yoga. On Mondays, I’ll come home and treadmill after the kids get picked up by their grandpa. Wednesdays, we’ll go walking at the state park. Thursday through Saturday, I’ll run the dogs while the kids have a cartoon and then we’ll hit the state park Thursday and Friday and the basketball court on Saturdays. I doubt I’ll lose more, but this activity level should keep me from gaining back in the meanwhile.
Reading is going slightly better. I’ve made progress on COOKIES AND SCREAM. I’ve been using the time my kids dally for reading. They take forever to get dressed in the morning and now it is to my advantage! May only be five pages in a day, but that’s more than the previous weeks.
