It's Wednesday already?

Well that came too quickly for me this week.

I got a whole 166 words written since Sunday on "The Page & the Magician".

Other things done since Sunday's check-in:

- Laundry including putting it away (which is practically unheard of, but I'm trying to clean my place and keep it clean).
- Contacted my financial advisor to start talking about taxes as a writer.
- Started knitting a replacement lanyard for my work badge as I ran out of spots to staple on the original one and haven't seen any new ones to buy that weren't covered in names of beer brands.
- Completed Quiz 2 of my Coursera course "Learning how to learn".
- Evaluated 5 peers.
- Wrote a business case and a project charter for a project I'm managing at my day job.
- Took chances.
- Read some chapters in Wuthering Heights.
- Figured out next steps for me in roller derby refereeing.
- Corrected my sword grip for my martial art.
- Learned about chunking as part of learning.
- Began an email-based course called "How to become a morning person", so I can get more writing time in each day.

So I guess I got a lot done, just not on my book.

Tomorrow is a new day to try again.

Ciao,

  1. Goodness, I would say you got a lot done! Holy cow. I don't quite know how you measured the goal, "took chances", but kudos to you anyway. You're having a fantastic week.

  2. What a neat, eclectic mix of achievements. I especially liked the fine tuning of the sword hold with 'chunking' learning! :) From Sunday to Weds always seems a bit fast for me as well, but we will focus and make progress. Have a good week. Even with writing.

  5. Sounds like you've stayed pretty busy! It's so nice to keep lists of things you HAVE accomplished, isn't it? Even though you may not have accomplished exactly what you wanted, you can see that you have accomplished many things! Great job. :-)

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
