I really don’t have much to talk about because life has been blissfully uneventful. And when I talk about the lack of events, it ends up being a super boring post. So, I’m going to share a list of things from my week that maybe you’ll want to add to yours.
#1- Clean Stove Grates
I did tell you I had a boring week, right? Anyways… See the top grate? That’s how the bottom one started. This was a hack I found on Pinterest. Both are clean now, but I did one side at a time so I could cook stuff without interruption or having to clean the grates first thing in the morning.
#2- Season 1 of THE DISASTROUS LIFE OF SAIKI K.
I watched this anime on Netflix, but it can also be watched on Crunchyroll. The first season has a dubbed version, but season 2 is only available in subtitles. Which is why, when I finished season 1 last night, I was so bummed. I had gotten used to all the voices (I watched the dubbed while doing stuff around the house like cleaning my desk). But, it is a hilarious comedy about a super psychic high school boy trying to live a normal life while surrounded by “weirdos.”
#3- Broccoli Salad
This recipe is close to the one I use (which was given to me by a friend). The difference between mine and that is I skip the florets and use broccoli slaw (not part of the original recipe… I’m just lazy), skip the onions (kids requested this), and add about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar. It was requested that I make it again this week.
Now for an abrupt topic change! Just like last week, today’s goal update won’t cover today (7/16) and will only cover Monday, July 9th through Sunday, July 15th.
My Round Goals
#1- Do At Least 1 Full Cycle of Writing Weekly
1st Part of Cycle – Write: I scheduled writing for Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. I wrote Monday through Wednesday.
2nd Part of Cycle – Edit: I scheduled editing for Wednesday only. I ended up editing on Friday and Saturday.
3rd Part of Cycle – Submit: Sent out a short story on Thursday as scheduled.
#2- Finish Writing (7/11), Editing, and Send Out PRINCE
This is the reason the schedule for the goal above got changed. I was so close to finishing the rough draft, I moved stuff around. Next step is clearing my edit cycle to do this.
#3- Finish Editing PET
I am doing a big push to finish this. I’m once again combining my read aloud phase and grammar check phase in order to polish this up. I have 3 of the 12 chapters already done. I’ll also be using my next write phase to work on the query letter for this.
#1- Pull List Pic (Instagram) & How Caught Up I Am
I am caught up on all single issues.
#2- Read 1 Trade/Graphic Novel Weekly
I failed this goal this week. Honestly, I didn’t even start a new one yet. (7/16)
RUNAWAYS Vol 1 (7/9)
#1- Blog Every Monday
I keep wanting to blog more, but I don’t have the time right now. I kinda am thinking about a weekly geek newsletter where I can post stuff like my current pull list, geek shows I’m watching, and maybe review new stuff I add (if done weekly, but if done monthly I would do seperate review posts and this would be like the teaser for them).
#1- Have My Friend JP Do My Hair
Almost. I need to get my hands on more dye. We’ll see how broke I am this week.
#2- Clean Up My Desk Area (DONE 7/12)
This took hours to do. I started just before lunch (11am) and finished around dinner (shortly before 7pm).
#3- Build Makoto a Coop
I bought what I needed, mostly hinges (7/14). My father-in-law offered me a window I might incorporate into the build, which I’ll get on Tuesday or Wednesday.
#4- Give the Main Coop a Window
Bought the sealant and brackets I needed (7/14).
Plan For The Week
#1- Edit PET. Next check-in I want at least 7 of the 12 chapters of PET done.
#2- Write PET query letter.
#3- Submit a story if I get one back, if not… something else?
#4- At least start reading MORNING GLORIES Vol 2.
#5- Get the wood prepped (lines for cutting drawn and prepainted) for the coop projects.
#6- Celebrate my husband’s birthday (Thursday celebration – real day Friday)!
#7- Get the roof on the house redone (construction crew is scheduled to do the whole thing on Friday).
