Not too bad…
The goals were set high and I fell short on a few. That pesky kitchen is taking forever; people keep messing it up as I try to clean it. Couldn’t we all just stop eating for the weekend? And those tests are still untouched. I’ll set my goals for the week here, though that does technically mean it didn’t get done over the weekend.
On the upside, I breezed past my word count target last night. A lot of those words may get cut before the end, but that’s irrelevant. I got the contest entry out to coolstuff, got the living room clean (with help from my wife), filled a box with dirt, sent off the headset, saw some waterfalls, even replaced a leaky shower head with a cool two-head model (not on the list). A successful weekend despite the unfinished list. I’m a little disappointed with my eating habits for the past few days, but that’s a different post.
So goals for this week (outside menial day-to-day stuff):
- remember my soccer ticket duty for Tuesday and show up
- grade those blasted tests!
- print and distribute the last of the review worksheets for my classes
- get answer sheets for those worksheets printed and reserve time for the students to use them
Those are all school-related goals. There’s a high-stakes test next week so these goals are at the forefront of my attention, but they fall within the school day and aren’t that big a deal.
- write 500 new words
- rewrite “Secondhand Rush”
- finish cleaning the blasted kitchen!
- catch up the laundry
- lose 2 pounds
- fix the invisible fence
The fence might not get done, but I want to try. I thing a mole chewed through it. Speaking of…
- poison those stupid moles
The low word count is practical considering the school pressure I’m under the next couple weeks. That should jump after the big test. Anyway, let’s see how I do.
