I had four short sweet goals for last week:
1) Finish the query for “Where the Sky Meets the Sand”
2) Write a chapter on my next novel “The Novitiate”
3) Blog on schedule here and on the Dino Chronicles
4) Get back on my exercise routine, as I hadn’t even done that last week.
And how did that work out for me? Not so much. I blogged three times on the Dino Chronicles, but missed Wednesday here. I am going to blame most of that on the fact that my laptop decided to go on sabbatical and just not respond to any of my advances. It just sat there going, “na-ner-na-ner, I’m not going to work for you no matter what you try”. I knew my son was coming home today and told myself not to freak out, to just keep trying to reboot the dumb thing and if nothing worked, my son could look at it today. Sometime in the middle of the night Thursday, when I couldn’t sleep, the umpteenth reboot woke up the beast and it has been working okay since. Still a little sluggish, but overall, working.
I don’t know what to tell you about the exercise routine thing, and certainly not about the hoping to lose ten pounds. I’ve been under a lot of stress, which means I rather sit on my backside and pour food down my throat than do anything more physical than I have to.
I still feel like I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I finally let my guard down enough on Friday to tell my hubby how I have really been feeling. He was naturally supportive and worried. But that just makes me feel worse because he is under more stress than I am. Last night he admitted that he felt he was losing it too. Think they have couples’ rooms on the psych ward?
I’ve been down this road before and I know that my feelings of despair will pass. I do worry about the hubby though. You might suggest he take a vacation. Today is the last day of a five-day vacation for him, during which he really didn’t have any plans and didn’t want any plans, just wanted to relax. Look at how well that worked out.
Anyway, we will figure it out. In the meantime, I typed up a new spreadsheet of my weekly goals. Even though they are about the same goals as I’ve had, maybe looking at them in a different format will jar me out of my complacency. It’s worth a try, right?
Hopefully, I’ll let you know how that is working on by Wednesday.
I've been thinking that I need some new head shots since I've grown out my hair. Hubby took some on Friday, but even that didn't turn out so well.
