Row80 Sunday Edition #7

It has been an oddball week.  We started out with the final days of Mardi Gras and I ended it with illness.  If a sinus infection wasn’t enough I had to have pink eye too.  I’ve never had pinkeye before and I never want it again.  My eye itches and I have to remind my myself not to touch my eye.  I also have to remind the kids not to use any of my towels or washcloths.  So laundry is a constant, can’t wait for this to be over.

On with the goals:

Writing: new novella.  25,000 words.  I’m at 14,027. It’s really hard to type/write/read with pinkeye.  The kids have been out all week and they’ve also been sick. Yippee!

Editing:  Edit my NaNoWriMo project, first 50 pages.  Nope.  I’ll work on this later.

Submissions: Submit to one editor/agent a week.  Nada

Health: One exercise session a week.  No.

The Great Purge: Taking one room at a time. Nada.

W&*(^t :  Goal 3 healthy snacks a week.  I have snacked less, and eaten yogurt.

Not much progress was made, but at least I did get up and get dressed today.  I say that’s an achievement.

How are your goals going?

Row80 Sunday Edition #5

Sunday means it’s time for Row80.  I had my last day of work on Wednesday, I am now officially unemployed.  I’m sure it won’t last long,but I plan on enjoying it while it lasts.  Of course, that adds additional things to my to-do list. This week was a fairly productive week.  Take a look:

Writing: new novella.  25,000 words.  I’m at 8,996 words.  Not much, but it’s a start.

Editing:  Edit my NaNoWriMo project, first 50 pages.  Nope.  I’ll work on this later.

Submissions: Submit to one editor/agent a week.  Yes, one query letter sent out.

Health: One exercise session a week.  No. I have given it some thought on the type of exercise I am willing to do.

The Great Purge: Taking one room at a time. I focused on trying to catch up with regular house work.

W&*(^t :  Goal 3 healthy snacks a week. The last week of work brought with it a massive amount of sweets. Doughnuts, brownies, cakes, and cookies.  So no, there was no healthy eating this week.  I will say, that at home, I don’t snack as much as at work.  That means, working makes you fat 🙂

So there you are, slow progress is still progress.  Considering I have accomplished anything while my birthday, losing my job, and Mardi Gras is going on,  is a miracle.

How are your goals?
