Rainy Spring Break

It never fails. Spring break is always rainy. We had one nice day, but the forecast looks bad for the rest of the week. It also means I have kids at home who want to run the roads. That translates to very little writing. I have hopes to get a little accomplished today.

I’m trying the color code method again.

Red highlights were a total failure.

Blue highlights were either constant progress, which I count as a success or completed.

Round 2 Goals:

  • New Release to publish. Nope.
  • Promotion. That’s a four letter word! I need to promote the new release. Contact three sites/peeps a week on promotion opportunities. I have a little time before this. It’s not out yet.
  • Camp NaNoWriMo.  I need to write 6,000 words a week. I’m a little behind. Only 1,398 so far this week.
  • Read 4 books a month. I started Soldiers of Fortune, book 6 in the Miss Fortune Mystery Series. This series cracks me up. 
  • Spend 15 minutes a day decluttering. Nope!Currently I’m trying to find out what mythical creature is wearing all the clothes that keep showing up in the laundry. We haven’t worn sweaters in months!
  • Spend 15 minutes a day on moving my behind. 1/2 days so far this week. I walked for an hour on Monday. Does that count for the week?
  • Write two posts a week, not related to Row80. Yes!
  • Stop binge watching Netflix. Seriously! I just finished watching season 2 of Daredevil. Total fail this week. Insomnia leads to binge watching.
  • Cut the processed foodsThree meals a week with no processed junk. I regret this already. Nope!
  • Eat fresh veggiesTwo meals a week with something fresh. No frozen! Exchange one snack a day with a healthy snack. Yesterday I had a coke float for lunch. That’s where I am this week.
  • Stay on top of Critique group. I’ve read 2 and have 3 left.

It’s not starting off as a great week. I’m giving myself a bit of wiggle room because the kids are home. We have plans most days to do something fun. I’m hoping to take them to see Batman vs. Superman. A new museum opened downtown on the Gulf of Mexico, that’s also on the list.  The girls are tween/teenagers and won’t be sweet for much longer so I will gladly toss my goals aside to spend time with them. memories are important.

How did your week go?



One thought on “Rainy Spring Break

  1. Time is always precious; time with our kids even more so. It needs to be savored. Enjoy!

    That said… it seems like you’re awfully down on yourself here. Of course you know best what you can achieve… but sometimes, life just happens whether we want it to or now. And sometimes some frozen veggies might be a better choice than fresh just because you don’t have time to chop and wash and make sure they didn’t get fuzzy in the last few days.

    Keep writing, keep doing…. you’ll get there.
