Title: One week plus one day is how long I have to wait to get my “redo” biopsy done. And while all through February I survived without a second thought about it, once it hit March 1st my thinking went into overtime to make up for it. All of February I told myself that I knew it all. Where to go, where to park, where to check-in, what they’ll do, how to get home, and how long it takes to heal. Been there. Done that. Nothing new. Except I know it as a disappointing experience. And so I’m scared this one will come up “do over” as well. All over again, I’m scared. I want answers. I want to start the next step.
Last Week: We had one bit of excitement but in the mildest way possible. For one thing, we bought a Nintendo Switch. I’ve played it once for a few hours and haven’t played since. Not because I didn’t want to but because my dread over the title has stolen time and energy from me so that I find I don’t have time or space to do so, even though I need to sell the canola in my silo in FARM SIMULATOR. (I have a weird taste in games). The kids got to enjoy it, however. We had an impromptu three day weekend (snow day on Friday) and my kids had fun playing their games (ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD and SUPER MARIO ODESSEY).
Goals: The dread and anxiety made working on my goals hard…
1) Finish Reading PET for Edits – DONE! (Been done)
2) Send 5 things out into slush – Done. (Been done)
ADDED 3) Write 2k/week on SUMMER – 2,145/2,000 words!!! They were finished on Sunday before I went to work. I squeaked it in. As for this week? I have yet to start. I will hopefully get started after this post is up.
1) Read at least 5 Comics a week – Over 5. I have my log of comics read on the dining table about 10 feet from me and I’m too lazy (because it was hard enough to get myself to focus right now and write this post from aforementioned anxiety) to get up and get it. I am three comics in the hole, however. They are my husband’s pull and they took a bit to reach me and I was low on reading time by then. Oh, but I did catch up with one ongoing series I follow and one we dropped. So both progress and a setback.
1) Blog on Tuesdays – Only because I have an altered work week. Normally, I’d be at work right now (6:33pm ET, Tuesday). But I have off today because of stuff I’ll mention in the outro. And that’s why I made this goal.
This Week: I have my usual work days off. They were replaced with a full day shift on Saturday (normally a day off for me). I don’t think it will change my plans much. I am hoping to get back on top of my comic reading, because if I can get my trades (the next phase after single issues are caught up) under control, then I can get to reading real books once more. And if I push through… I might just be able to do it this week. Wish me luck?
