Weekly Goals, Weeks 7 and 8: Hanging in There

Last week was so busy, between my mom's physical therapy and doctor's appointments and just general care, that I never had a chance to blog.  In fact, I'm not altogether sure what I did do all week.  I did manage to get a ride in, but looking back, the week is a blur.

It was, at least, a little better than the previous week, when my mom still needed a lot more help and my dad had a surgery as well.  That was my "just survive" week #2.

I did find a little time last week to work on organization, which was good.  I went through my absurd collection of records (I was buying a lot of old records at one point to find authentic 20s music as research and inspiration for my 20s novel series, Ruby Ransome) and picked out about half to donate.  This gets all of the remaining records into the record cabinet, which frees up additional space in the living room.

Unfortunately, the doll show is looming, and I need to get started prepping for that.  I have five weeks as of right now.  It means I need to get back to work on organizing as soon as possible, so that I can move on to sorting out what needs to be rehabbed, organizing everything, and pricing.

We have another busy week ahead of us, so I'm being conservative here, but these are my goals for the week:

  1. Work on organizing
  2. Start prepping for doll show
  3. Survive
Okay, there's still a fair amount of "just surviving" this week.  We have a whole bunch of appointments for my mom, so I'm not going to have a lot of time around that.  But even if I can do a little bit of organization and prepping this week, it's that much that I have out of the way and won't have to worry about in March once my mom goes back home!
