May Day….May Day…

It’s not actually May Day, I’ve no idea when that happens. The week is finally over. The dinner theater of Peter Pan was a great success. My youngest turned 12, almost a teenager. So sad. One of the things I gave her was a rubber stamp that said, This book belongs to …… (it had her name on it). She loved it. She got so excited. She started pulling books out and stamping. It was so cute.

We played hooky from church today. After five shows and a birthday, I needed a rest. In writing news Camp NaNoWriMo is over and I hope to be more active online.

Row80 Goals:

Round 2 Goals:

Red highlights were a total failure.

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

  • Promotion. Nada.
  • Read 4 books a month. Just started The Cat Sitter’s Pajamas by Blaize Clement. A cute cozy with a cat wearing pjs on the cover.
  • Spend 15 minutes a day decluttering. Only today. I rallied the troops and we cleaned out the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.
  • Spend 15 minutes a day on moving my behind.  I say yes. I spent three days chasing children and cleaning up after the theater dinner.
  • Write two posts a week, not related to Row80. Nope.
  • Stop binge watching Netflix. Seriously! I just finished watching season 2 of Daredevilyes.
  • Cut the processed foodsThree meals a week with no processed junk.  No! Because of the chaos we ate out a lot.
  • Eat fresh veggiesTwo meals a week with something fresh. No frozen! Exchange one snack a day with a healthy snack. Nope. I had cookies and cake for the cast!
  • Stay on top of Critique group. Nope.

Goals reached for Round 2:

  • New Release to publishMissing Children is now available. So happy.
  • Camp NaNoWriMo.  I won!!! I am happy to have this novella written. It’s been lurking in the back of my mind for a while.

There is too much red this week but I survived so I’m happy.  This weekend is Free Comic Book Day, May 6. My kids have bailed on me. They were invited to see Captain America: Civil War. Can’t say I blame them, I want to see it too. I guess I will hit the comic book store on my own. They don’t need comics anyway;)

How did your week go?

  1. Congrats on the new release and Camp Nano!

    Some weeks are better than others. I’m sure you’ll find your groove soon.

    I lost momentum this week due to a flare up of wrist tendonitis. I am now using voice recognition software to write, and it’s been slow going. But it keeps me moving, and that’s what counts. 🙂


  2. Congrats on the progress you made and your new release. My week was all right, I suppose. The A to Z Blogging Challenge is over. I had a blast doing that. In between, I found some time to write a story. Now, I’m in the dark on what to write next. I suppose I could start my novel; I just don’t know where to begin. Hopefully, it will come to me this week.


    • Starting a new project can be daunting. You have a high from finishing a story and want to start another but where? I found it’s easier just to start writing you can always add a scene or tow or delete the first one. Just start. Good luck.

  3. Congratulations on CampNaNo success. That is deserving of a whole lot of blue on your blog post. I also think that cleaning the freezer, frig and pantry earns you a blue, even if it was just one day, that sounds like a day-long project.


    • Cleaning out the food stores took some time. It reminded me how blessed we are to have food. I made a list of what’s left and took the kids I’m not going to the store again until it’s all gone!


  4. It cracks me up that we had such similar blog post title ideas this week for our checkins. And you accomplished a couple big things despite all the hubbub associated with a theatrical production… that’s *impressive*. 🙂
    Good luck next week, too. 🙂
