The daylight hours are beginning to multiply along with warm temperatures. I don’t know how it is where you live, but since the invention of the personal computer, there are few kids seen enjoying the great outdoors here where I live. But something bizarre is happening this year. I’m seeing kids riding bikes, and I can hear them yelling into the wind and laughing. Has the pizzazz of the computer diminished?
This Last Week
- Hubby was in training for his job all week. The six hours of peace and quiet each day were wonderful. The minute I would see him back out of the driveway, I’d be in the kitchen cleaning up the mess he left in his wake. Shower came after and I’d make the bed. Then it was off to the “computer room”.
- My self-improvement routine was minimal. I wrote in my personal journal twice all week. My physical exercise consisted of cleaning up multiple hairball the three cats decided to contribute to the inside environment and riding the bike twice.
- WIP: I didn’t get as far as I wanted to get or should have. I’m sorely disappointed in myself. I had the time to do more, and yet I squandered the time. And I can’t remember how that time was spent. Word count:17,309, Hour: 10
- We have cable with Charter. The service with them has been decent. That is until this last Wednesday. I woke up, got my first mug of coffee, and proceeded to go online — no Internet. I picked up the phone to call them to get it straightened out. The phone was dead (our phone is also through Charter). I got out the cell phone, got a hold of Charter, and set up a field appointment for the next day. When the man arrived and evaluated our situation, he was fit to be tied. Whoever was the serviceman who rewired after the ice storm we had in February put the cable in upside down, which, in turn, caused the cable to develop a slice in it that filled with water. This last representative had to redo the entire thing all over again. Surprisingly, once he got started on the work, he did it all with a smile. Nice man. — And the lack of Internet shouldn’t have hindered my work on the WIP. On the contrary, it should have helped me get more done. You know, no distractions.
Next Week’s Plans
- I’m acutely aware of the fact that a little more physical exercise will improve my work on the WIP. This next week is it. It is going to happen because Hubby starts his regular shift from 3pm to 12am on Monday. Yay! A routine for the entire household — finally. On Fridays, he’ll be working a four-hour shift in the morning so that he has his 40 hours in for the week. It’s slightly different from what it was before, but I think both of us are going to like it.
- I’ll be pushing myself to do the personal journal. I want to get completely past the reminisces and get on with the here and now.
- WIP: I’m planning to complete two more character sheets and get the word count up. Intended word count: at least 19,500.
I hope your next week is filled with accomplishments and happiness. 😀
