I haven’t done so good this week on my one main goal of writing the memoir of my sister and our lives together for CampNaNoWriMo. I am up to 8380 words. Since it is almost the middle of the month and my goal was 30,000 words, I am way behind. Like 7,000 words behind. I keep thinking that I have lots of time, that I can still catch up, but I have so much going on this month. I just don’t know what I was thinking by even trying to tackle this.
Tonight after work I am giving a talk on my African trips to our children’s class at church (usually known as Sunday School, but since they meet on Wednesday night, and Wednesday School doesn’t have a ring to it, I never know what to call it). I give two more talks in the next month, one on the 28th and one on May 8 at two different churches in two different towns, one 30 minutes away and one an hour and a half away. Also, the weekend of April 23 is the yearly state conference for my profession in medical assisting. We are having a table there to sell all of our Kenyan merchandise, so I need to get all our new stuff inventoried and priced this weekend. Of course, first and foremost is that my kids and the rest of our team come home from Kenya tomorrow. And I cannot wait to hear all of their stories and see all of their pictures.
I also am still trying to work my way up to running 5K. The weather here has been so abysmal, however, that I haven’t been able to start running outside yet and I just can’t go far on the treadmill.
And then there are the 900 pictures I took on vacation last week, which I need to edit and title, and hopefully delete a bunch. I bet there’s something else I am supposed to be working on, so much for keeping my goals simple this Round!
Has it been this hectic for you? Or are you meeting all your goals so far? And has spring come yet to your neck of the woods?
