I’m supposed to blog on Tuesday, but… Tuesday morning my daughter said, “I feel like crap.” Knowing twelve-year-olds I said, “get the thermometer for me and we’ll figure out from there.” Only, it wasn’t tween sneak. So, I was Super Mama Bear all day. And then I went to work. When I came home I was dead. Which is why I found out this morning was a snow day… I slept in like a pro! So, that’s why I am a day late.
The past week has been a mixed bag like that. Bad news? The husky has cancer. We don’t have enough info yet to know how upset we should be. We have an appointment with a specialist tomorrow. The good news? Our taxes are done. Things went well with that. With my husband’s change in work, this is his first full year at this job, there were fears. Thankfully, they were unfounded.
If life was a mixed bag, what happened to my goals?
1) Finish Reading PET for Edits – DONE! (Been done)
2) Send 5 things out into slush – Done. Just this week done! Which means I am in need of new writing goals. I’ll be deciding those this week and then taking a week off. Because I have scheduled mental health breaks after every 6 weeks of work. So next week, await a new goal in this section! Then expect nothing done on it. (LOL)
1) Read at least 5 Comics a week – 12. When I started trying to catch back up I divided my reading into 5 waves. Wave 1 was stuff that belonged to my daughter and I was holding hostage so I could read it before I gave it to her. Wave 2 was everything I was super excited to read and I knew I could breeze through. Wave 3 was stuff that was a mix of harder to read plus excited and slightly less excited but easy to read. Wave 4 is DC’s current event: Metal! Wave 5 is thick reads. Black Monday Murders, for example. And well… I’m making progress. Progress that is technically part of next week’s update, so I’ll tell you next week.
1) Blog on Tuesdays – A day late, but close enough?
Anyways, it is 7 minutes to my bedtime: 10PM ET. I’m a lightweight. I’ve already stated my intent for next week within my goals.
What makes you feel good when you’re sick?
What do you do to pamper your sick loved ones?
How do you tackle that pile of reads?
