I’m not feeling so great about my goals this week. I tend to think I can do everything, and the simple truth is I just can’t. I stayed up late and woke up early, and homeschool was anything but structured, all as a result of the work for my novel launch. Granted, this is not something that happens every day around here, and something to get excited about–if I could find a minute to do that in!
All of that is to say that I didn’t hit the target on all of my goals this week, but I did make some progress.
Here are the goals I’m working on:
- I was up twice this week at 6:00 and had my morning routine underway. I did not exercise. Something I have yet to mention here is I injured my shoulder during our vacation. (Seeing the chiropractor and then the doctor and then having an ultrasound were some of the events that turned the previous week upside down). The diagnosis was as good as it could be. It was not any of the things that anyone suspected it might be (a break, a dislocation, a sprain, a strain or a tear). It is simply bruised and inflamed and needs rest. That’s okay, I didn’t need my right arm anyway! Seriously, though, I’m very grateful it was nothing worse. My range of motion is returning and my sleep is less disrupted by pain than it was. Even though we’re traveling this week, things can only be calmer than they were last week, and I should be able to have some kind of a normal schedule. Now that my shoulder’s feeling better, I’ll add some exercise.
I’m going to make a determined effort to go to bed on time for a change because for me that’s key to starting the day right.
- Regroup in the homeschooling department and come up with a plan for what we’ll study until we leave Canada. I honestly haven’t done much about this except think about it, and fret a little. Ultimately, I realize that if my kids focused on the old-fashioned three R’s for the entire school year, they’d still be fine at the end of the year. I just feel like what we’ll lose out on is all the things we love the most (history, science, read-alouds). I know we’ll figure it out, and I keep telling myself it’s just a season.
- I still have some work to do to schedule more dates for my virtual book tour, but it’s coming along. Click on the link to the right to join in! More than one of the reviewers is hosting a giveaway. You could be the lucky winner!
