Accountability Monday

If you live in the Northeast, congratulations on surviving the coldest weekend we've had in a long, long time. According to one report, Boston had the coldest Valentine's Day since the 50s. But! Despite the arctic temperatures there's minimal snow, so I'm pretty happy. Especially since the day job changed their snow day policy to read as "we don't do snow days," the lack of snow is a blessing.

Winter though has done a number on me. I can't get enough sleep. This makes doing things like anything outside of the 9-5 super hard. Unless you count re-binge watching Veronica Mars that is.

How I Did Last Week

Well, last week I had no goals because I forgot to do that. But I can tell you I did nothing. 

Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week

Exhaustion. There are no words for how tired I've been. This weekend alone I slept 21 of 48 hours. That's almost an entire day of sleeping.

My Goals For This Week

  • Bite the bullet and start the really hard revisions. No more procrastinating! 
  • Send out those mass emails for my role as A/V Coordinator for NESCBWI 16.
  • Continue with the 30 day plank challenge. 
  • Stretch goal: Maybe come up with a better blog layout. Maybe.

Accountability Monday

It's February. I'm not sure how this happened because it seems like I just blogged about patience being my focus this year*. Hubby and I have done more adulting in the last two weeks than we've probably done in the 13 years we've been together, but it's all going to be worth it. Our cluttered apartment is becoming a pretty mature looking home bit by bit and hopefully it will clear out my brain enough to be able push through revisions, writing, and all things businessy.

How I Did Last Week

I rewrote the beginning of my new first chapter and then stopped again because the household stuff actually had to take precedence. Hopefully this week it will be different.

Biggest Challenge I Faced This Week

The adulting again. It really is a two-team effort. Plus, if we didn't continue with The Great Purge of 2016, we wouldn't have found a dozen cat toys hidden under the couch.

My Goals For This Week

  • Complete the new first chapter.
  • Print out paperwork I need for my role as A/V Coordinator for NESCBWI 16.
  • Send out a reminder email to participants of an upcoming workshop at The Writers' Loft.




* Which, BTW, is a major struggle. Patience is not my strong suit at all.
