ROW80 11/27 Check-In
My mind has been seeking distractions. “What am I making/baking leading up to Christmas?” “How am I going to decorate the front lawn?” “Why am I so distracted?” “How many Doritos can I eat before the casserole suffers?” “Which science fair option should my son take?” “What cheese-tastic Hallmark holiday movie is on?”
But, suffice it to say, the number one thing I’ve been going to is a hamster. My hamster. I got her, Queenie-a teddy bear hamster-on Saturday.
Goals suffered. Now, it wasn’t Queenie’s fault. My obsessing over her (and her cuteness) was brought on by me not taking myself into account. Like I don’t take my kids’ school holidays into account (most of the time), there are also other things that can throw me off. I should have seen this coming and planned for it. I didn’t. Just like the kids’ days off! (BTW- This is something, somewhat new I discovered about myself. It has always been there, but I just recently identified my doing it.)
Anyways, I set myself up for a bad week last week. This week, I won’t. My kids get a 5 day weekend for Thanksgiving. This is also when I break out the decorations. So, I have 0 expectations. It would be nice if I find time to finish editing chapter 2 of GRANDMA, but it isn’t a must.
What’s your favorite fall food?
Any decoration you are looking forward to unboxing?
Got a cute pet that distracts you from writing?
