Merry Monday - Goal Setting

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignleft" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

The demonstration at the Japanese Embassy went well. I was a little nervous on the day, but I found my focus and got through it. Generally, I have difficulty with change, but after doing demos for a couple of years, they are rarely done according to plan. More people showed up than we thought and many were there just before the demo. There wasn't enough space inside to do it safely because several of the exhibits were on the stage. It's a good thing the weather was beautiful. One of the other ladies made rice balls for everyone to have after the demonstration. It was delicious and I'm now on a bento box kick.

My sewing area is getting cleaner, as is the rest of my home. I have some repairs to do on my kitchen drawers that are taking longer than I thought they would, but I'm just doing a little at a time and I know they'll get done eventually. I'm more concerned with the actual messy areas like my dining and living room as I'd like to have people over in the near future.

I'm starting to find this thing called routine again. Liking it. I function better with routine.

The outline for my screenplay is coming along. I'm going to get back to doing ROW80 to help me stay focused, so here are my writing goals right now:

  • Edit The Language of Love by May 15th

  • Complete Puppy Chow screenplay loglines by May 1st

  • Complete Puppy Chow first draft by May 31st

  • Add 500 words a day to The Blood Waitress Club

  • Edit the short fiction piece for my newsletter

  • Newsletter goes live


Other goals:

  • Finish setting up sewing area

  • Finalize product listing and specifications

  • Start building up an inventory

  • Get the house clean

  • Walk at least 30 minutes a day

  • Work on leg strength in preparation for the May seminar

  • Read 5 pages every day

  • Make healthy bento box lunches

  • Play a bit of guitar every day

  • 1 hour of "play" each week (gaming or something that is relaxing)

  • Limit/eliminate time with unhealthy people


I think that's enough to work on. So I'm jumping back into ROW80 when it's half over, but there's still time to accomplish my goals. I've added them to my bullet journal too. Some were sort of in there, but the way I wrote them in was annoying to me. I like just working with one day at a time. For a Gantt chart, I'd rather use a spreadsheet.

Tonight is the first night in a very long time that I get to attend my original writing group. I'm looking forward to seeing them and catching up.

Well, off to get some things done.

Salut,
R~

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

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
