Missed Some Days

Things have been a little wonky, mentally, for me.

Got news I got a pay raise! That’s good news.

But otherwise, I’m not really sure what’s going on!

I Am Tired

April is going to be a busy month. I made myself a desktop calendar, and already, I can see the month flying by!

April 2021 calendar, featuring Binx all wide-eyed, Kira just being super cute, and another of Binx making biscuits.

I’m realizing, looking at it, that I should have marked up the calendar (I got it for being a Patron of JashiiCorrin, with modifications just using Photoshop CS and pics I took).

It’s going to be a doozy, though.

Okay:

  1. April Fool’s Day on the first
  2. Easter is on the 5th
  3. Josh’s birthday is the 18th.
  4. Josh gets his first tattoo on the 20th.
  5. He’s off that whole week, as well (18th through 25th, I believe)
  6. It’s the last full month of school. Big deal since I have a daughter graduating this year.
  7. I almost forgot: April 2nd, the kids get their first dose of the vaccine.
  8. Sometime in April, Josh is getting HIS second dose.
  9. April the 3rd, the pets are scheduled to get microchipped.

All right, that doesn’t seem like too much, but if you add in that I have to work during all of that, you’ll see my panic.

Okay, panic isn’t the right word, but WOW, I’m already feeling overwhelmed.

Mushrooms FTW

I didn’t make the best food choices, but I really don’t care.

I should but I don’t. 

Working 9 hour shifts will do that to a person.

Wow! SO QUIET!

So. I’ve been quiet. There’s no real reason why. When I work a lot of days, I don’t open my laptop. It’s effort I don’t want to extole. So I don’t. And my old phone (Samsung S8) was great but the screen was too small. I just couldn’t make the app work the way I wanted it to!

But Friday, I took advantage of the AT&T deal of getting the Note 20 for free (or ridiculously discounted as we’ll be doing for the kids). I have never had a phone this new, and I love it. Like so new, Walmart STILL doesn’t have any cases or anything for it out. 😐

But I’m hoping that since I have a phone that is practically a tablet now, I’ll be able to do more mobile postings!

The End of 2020?

Goals. Goals. Goals.

Goals! I have them.
Goals, I need them.
Goals! I made them!

I decided on 5 track-able goals for the end of 2020.
1. Health based
2. Writing related
3-5 are home related!

Weigh 130 lbs

I don’t want to weigh less than 130, but if I’m over at the end of 2020, but I achieve the other goals for this, I’ll be more than happy.

  • Drink half my body weight in ounces
  • eat veggies most (2B Mindset)
  • finish a workout program

Finish a First Draft

I want to write a novel. I want to write one really bad. This year, it’s going to be my year.

  • set up OneNote for the novel
  • create a basic plot
  • write 50k (for NaNoWriMo)
  • finish the book

Organize Closet

I love our house, and I love the master closet. It’s big. But it’s a bit of a mess.

  • Go through boxes (we still have boxes from when we moved)
  • Organize hanging clothes (shirts/dresses/etc)
  • Figure out organization. Some of our bathroom stuff needs to go in the closet. 😉
  • Figure out lighting and shelves. If the organization needs an overhaul, we’ll have to change the shelving too. And I’m not a fan of the light fixture in it.

Organize Bedroom

We have a good sized bedroom, but we both have a lot of clothes, and I refuse to part with what I don’t have to. Plus, I want to add a smallish desk to the room as well.

  • go through clothes (meaning stuff that’s never going to fit again, and doesn’t have meaning to me, stuff like that)
  • work on arrangement ideas 😀
  • set up any furniture (I need at least one more dresser, and we plan on adding a tv to the room)
  • make bedroom part of daily routine (picking up laundry, making bed, etc)

Set Up Office Area in the Basement

Our basement is full but unfinished (well, finished, but not …). So I’m trying to figure out how I want the basic area set up for the office area and working out.

  • Get rid of the trash. You know, empty boxes, used things, etc.
  • Work on arrangement ideas. I have over 1200 square feet to work with. That requires a plan 😉
  • Set up the official workout area. We got the puzzle foam pieces to make it work.
  • Figure out filming area. I want to be able to do videos, and well, I need an area to do it that doesn’t look busted and unfinished.
