My weeks have been quite bumpy since the start of the year. My accepting real life and tempering my expectations with it was a seriously good resolution. It is probably why I haven’t ended up crying in a corner by now.
This week’s bumps included me not realizing until Saturday (late afternoon) that my license was expired. I had to renew it Monday, but I didn’t have the car. That meant a walk in frigid temperatures, which I mostly ended up enjoying. Could have been warmer, though. It also meant our taxes were filed two days later than we planned on. Wednesday probably should have been a snow day, but it wasn’t. There was an early release from school for the kids. Oh, and lots of snow. Way too much snow. Friday was a two hour delay for the kids that I didn’t know about until I almost left my son at an empty bus stop.
I’m still on Cycle 2 (editing) of my new writing schedule. I finished editing NERITE, but still have a few pages to go on GRANDMA. As for my other plan, the stickers, I did way better this week than last week. Improvement is yay! I also decided that for February that the Angry Birds will be 30 minutes of watching a Korean drama (TO THE BEAUTIFUL YOU). That is about half an episode and what I can usually squeeze in a day.
Review Grammar 4 Days (breakfast) – Friday 2 hour delay. Did 3.
Study Japanese 4 Days (lunch) – Did 4.
Visit 2 ROWers (minimum) Each Check-In – Barely better than last week. Visited 0 ROWers on Monday and 4 on Thursday.
Before Round Ends
Write/Finish 1 Short Story – NERITE edit pass 1 done.
Write 10,000 Words On TJ – 5,041/10,000 | 50% done – On hold until next Cycle 1
Complete 5 Projects (from project/procrastination list) – 2/5 | No new progress
I hope to finish GRANDMA edits on Monday. That means another day off on Wednesday. Thursday, I have to another day off from writing, as I’ll be baking cupcakes for my daughter’s class party. With luck, I’ll be starting Cycle 3 on Friday.
Any New Year’s resolutions working out well for you?
