Until the next time. Which, by strange coincidence, is now. Right now in fact. I am at home today, in front of the computer, propped up on a pillow and a really hot heating pad. My back has been hurting mildly for a couple of weeks, but in the last 48 hours it has been really bad. I attribute this to some work related problems (bad chairs and awkward keyboard placement) and to the self induced stress of a project deadline.
See, I have this friend at work who is leaving to write full time (You can find his name at the top of my favorite books list) I have known he is leaving for almost a year. I knew I had to make this book, I make all the scrapbooks when people leave. And this one is special. You would think that would motivate me. Nope. It makes my procrastination turn into a superpower. I am pathetic.
So, the other day I was browsing through some blogs when I found this post over at Growing Unique. Here is the link to the full post, which is titled "Wishing and Wanting".
In this post Rennata gives a review of her goals (long and short term) and where she stands in meeting each one. She also provides a place for you to link your own post and share your goals. It's a way of making yourself more accountable and keeping the motivation up. I really need this!
So, here I am. Writing my list of short term goals for this week, when I should in fact be 1 tab over working on my project. So, this week's list will be short.
- Finish scrapbook by Friday. This must be done in order to get it on time.
- Work on cross stitch. I have been working on this for a coworker for roughly 5 years. It was supposed to be a wedding present. She has 2 kids now. I am not kidding.
- Get back to my journaling.
OH! I wanted to give you one more link! It is to the my weekly review of the TV show Castle on the Fanbolt website. I am having so much fun writing these weekly updates. I hope that next summer I might get the chance to write the Falling Skies review too. Hey, a girl can dream!
Castle 5.09 Episode recap and review: Secret Santa
