I’m getting a late start on this post again. I was under the weather yesterday. It wasn’t so bad that I was in bed or not on the computer, but my brain refused to consider a post entry. What is that ingredient that you find in most Asian food? I’m thinking that my digestive system has an awful time with it. This is upsetting because I love Asian food.
My list of this last week:
- Hubby is recovering still. He’s doing more now — in particular, cleaning out the closet in the “computer room”. Yay! Except for a few odds and ends, he’s completed the task. Now I have a little more room. He still isn’t suppose to lift any more than 20lb. That restriction will be lifted later on this month.
- My WIP is coming along. It’s almost at a snail’s pace though. Having a decent summary of the chapters and the scenes is making me focus more on the details of the story that I have had a tendency to skip over before. My Word Count Thus Far: 4639, Hours: 7 1/4. Still need to work harder on getting more done within a week’s time. (read the next bullet to see how I’ll do that 😉 )
- It’s taken me almost 25 years to figure out that I don’t have to follow Hubby’s lead all the time. I have finally really listened to him when he tells me that he wants me to do what I love to do. He’ll adjust as needed to accommodate me. Why wasn’t I listening to him before? I was listening to social norms instead. After getting to know Jacqui Murray better and, therefore, finding out how she gets her writing done, some of those unwritten rules of society took a flying leap out of my life. Five of those seven hours I spent on my WIP was done on Thursday and Friday (despite the tummy problems). 😀
- I didn’t get much housecleaning done this last week, and it shows. I have Miya’s black fur showing up all over the place.
What I want to get done this next week:
- I’m hoping to get the word count of the WIP over 8,000, and at least 10 hours of time on it.
- Clean out all the gunk in the raised garden we have in our backyard.
- Get to The Book Cellar (used book store) with my small mountain of books that I’ve read and get some more.
- Get the housework done.
Since I’ve turned 60 (very late last summer), I’ve been doing an attitude transformation. It started when I turned 50 but the changes were small. Now I’m getting into the colossal altering. Psychologically, it’s given me a new lease on life. I wonder how far I can go with this revamping of my attitude?
