I’ve done something I haven’t done in a long time. I forgot to alter my plans for a kids’ day off from school. Usually, I give myself the day off from goals and last week, I just didn’t. I mean, when I planned the goals. On the actual day? Yeah. No goals were worked on. Though, lots of work went into the dress for my daughter’s weeping angel costume. And then…
On Saturday? I woke up to an email that eventually made me so excited I barely got anything done (only the laundry). After searching for months, I found some guinea pigs in need of a home. Two 10 month old sows named Oreo and Cupcake (yes, we’re keeping their original names, as adopters of most our pets, it’s just how we do it). In fact, I didn’t even write this post (as I normally do on Saturday afternoons) until today (Sunday morning). And I was up really early too, because “OMG I GOT PIGGIES IN MY HOUSE! CANNOT SLEEP MORE!” happened. Because, I’m secretly a six-year-old in an adult’s body.
So how did I do? I wrote 1956 words and almost made my goal despite losing a day of writing. I exercised 4 days (despite yoga being canceled and losing one traditional exercise day). I read a combo of 8 pages and 5%, missing my reading goal. I started the Pre-Writing Packet, but I’m not as far along as I’d like. I studied at 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches. And this week I remembered to visit those 4+ ROWers.
This week, I will work on getting the pigs worked into everyday routine and start working on my goal to increasing my daily word counts.
To be on track this week I’ll…
Write 2500 words * Exercise 4 Days * Read a combo of 30 pages or 15%
Do More Pre-Writing Packet * Study at 5 Breakfasts * Study at 4 Lunches
Visit 4+ ROWers
