Weekly Goals: Week 28

NaNoWriMo is over, and I made it through the weekend of events (the Thank Goodness It's Over party for NaNoWriMo, and the doll museum event yesterday).  I didn't get everything done I'd wanted to last week, but I did manage to meet my goals for NaNoWriMo, so I'm relatively pleased with that.

It was also a majorly aggravating week, with car repairs that didn't happen and a toilet replacement that didn't solve the problem.  The plumbing issue is still ongoing and the plumber is coming back next week, once he returns from out of town, to try to figure out if the vent is plugged.

My plan was to seriously start working on doll repair once NaNoWriMo ended.  Of course, I thought I'd be further along with the reorganization project by now, but I still need to start devoting time to repairing some client dolls.  So that's one of my major goals for the week, right behind working on my novel every day.

I didn't work on my novel at all over the weekend, but I decided late Saturday after a very busy day that it was going to be too difficult to do so.  I gave myself permission to let that slide over the weekend.

This week is starting off busy and chaotic.  Today my dad had a doctor's appointment that I went to, my husband had to take his car in for repairs (the emissions filter saga: part 4), and the plumber came (again) to remove the toilet so that I can paint behind it while he's out of town.  We still need to pick up Zac's car and do barn chores, which most likely will involve cleaning buckets today (since there's no way I can do it tomorrow).

Tomorrow my mom is coming over for haircuts, and then spending the night.  Originally she was going to spend two nights and have dinner with my dad on Wednesday, but she decided not to since she has book club on Thursday, and will be going home on Wednesday.  That will honestly be better for me getting things done next week, but hopefully she'll come visit again soon.

After my mom leaves on Wednesday, things should be a little easier for the rest of the week.

I'm trying to focus my week as much as possible on my goals:

  1. Work on my novel every day
  2. Start working on client dolls
  3. Work on organizing

Honestly, I'm going to keep my goals for the week down to just these three to make it more likely that I will accomplish what I need to do.  If I have time to do more, I can always add it in, but these are the things that I want to focus on first.

So far my energy levels are holding up well with the new meds schedule, so I have hope that I'll be able to get some good work done this week unhindered!
