I really thought I’d be able to keep up with a goal of posting once a week. I even planned time tonight to sit down and write.
This is new, because most days are helter-skelter, what with the new job, the kids and the random acts of renovation.*
*In the last eight weeks, in addition to regular busy life, Hubby and I have repaired and painted walls and ceilings.
So tonight, I planned to take a break and write while Hubby was at a late meeting.
But then I thought, “if I get the bathroom painted, Hubby can install the new porcelain sculpture…” (yes, we’re replacing the toilet). So instead of writing, I listened to a great audio book and painted the potty.
This brings me to
for this year:
Finish the doggone house.
If you’ve followed the blog these past two years, you’ve seen the mess seven leaks can precipitate.
We are almost finished with final repairs (which we stubbornly insist on completing ourselves because, well, we are stubborn). This is the year we DO IT.
So I finished the bathroom in record time. I thought, “great, I still have time to write,” and simultaneously wondered, “what IS that ridiculous noise?”
It was the sound of our clothes washer NOT draining.
Determined to ensure this did not become leak #8, I drained it manually then cleaned out the pump filter.
Only took me an hour.
And now, I write.
What goals have you set—or met—this week?
