I've made a decent amount of progress this weekend. I've noticed that whenever I make use of my planner, I tend to do better on my goals. Part of the problem has been that it would get misplaced during the reno, so it was hard to set shorter term goals. I tend to use Trello for my long-term overarching goals.
I also made a change with my chores. I have a schedule, but I was initially trying to get everything done in a whole room and that wasn't working. Instead, I'm keeping the schedule, but my goal is to do whatever I can in 30 minutes or so. I'm seeing a lot more progress on my declutter this way and it's less stressful. Now it doesn't feel like I have a mountain to climb. And it's motivating me like nothing else has lately in regards to getting caught up around my home.
For awhile, I thought about going back to school for a Master's degree, but I've realized that the last decade has been too full for me. I've had little time to relax and little time to spend on the things I love most. So I'm making a change that I've been thinking about for a long time. I'm letting go of one activity, so that I will have more time for the activities I love more. I want more time for music, writing, skating, and reading.
Speaking of skating, I haven't gotten out much lately. This summer has been too warm for me. My allergies were also bad. I'm happy we're approaching the autumn now.
Tomorrow is Election Day in Canada. I voted in the advance polls because the line moved quicker. This means I can spend the day focusing on other things.
I'm still chipping away at Chapter 5. Once I get passed it, the rest of the editing will hopefully be smoother.
Well, back to work tomorrow, so I need to get going.
