Goals, whatcha gonna do?

I am spot-on with some goals, and others – argh!  I will get this though, I will not quit this time.

·         My reading goal is to finish four of the books that I started reading a while back. I finished reading “Decoding Daniel” on Tuesday and “The Deer on a Bicycle” on Thursday. Halfway there.
·         Finish my novel.  Just haven’t gotten back at it yet.
·         I will get back on track with my blogging, twice a week here and three times a week on my other blog. I posted not only twice on schedule to this blog, but actually posted an extra time to my other blog.  
·         Submit three pieces each Round. I still have only got one submission in this Round.
*I also had a phone conference with my publisher's marketing guy on Friday. Got a few helpful hints that I hope to incorporate into my writing life. 
·         My daughter and I are still working on our nonprofit, Tumaini Volunteers. We are planning a “friend-raiser” for June 1. That is my goal with the nonprofit this month: help with and attend the “friend-raiser”.  We are having a meeting today to work on the “friend-raiser” and you can read this blog post to see what my thoughts are on just what that is.
·         Continue running or at least walking when I can, but not sure about running a 5K this year. I walked close to three miles with a friend one day this week. Then last night ran into another friend who is signed up for the 5K on July 4 and wants me to run it with her. So much for this goal.
·         Sewing.  I finally hemmed my brother’s pants yesterday and cut out a scrub top for work.

Another, though unwritten, goal, get this spot of my yard looking like a garden. 


  1. I can see a lot of progress in there, even if it's not all exactly how you want it to be. Best wishes getting back to the novel and sending out the submissions! Hope you have a great round!
