I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already. Time is flying by the closer I get to my due-date. Little Miss Took will be here before we know it…EEK! 🙂
So, I did manage to take a look at my goals…I can’t say that they changed all that much, but my thoughts are a little more organized, and I did set up some boundaries as to when/where/how they’ll get done. That’s a good thing. Pregnancy hormones can cause sensibility-blindness, and I these days I need a clear reminder of when it’s okay to shut off one area of my life to focus on another.
Here’s what I’m looking at:
*Work on the WIP after the kids go to bed in the evening. Trying to do any serious work while they’re vying for my attention just doesn’t work.
*Stop beating myself up for not getting to it during the day. That’s just the way my schedule is. It’s not good or bad; it just is.
*Read and promote other folk’s blogs 1 hr/day in the morning while the kids are working on quiet projects. This is Monday through Friday only. Cut myself a break on Sat and Sun.
*Write one blog post/day 4 days a week in an effort to stockpile blogs for baby’s arrival. Write these during SweetZ’s naptime.
*Schedule guest posts for when baby arrives. *cough* Any volunteers out there? 🙂 *hugs* (and a HUGE thanks to those of you who’ve already volunteered!)
*Reduce blogging to three times a week (not counting ROW80 check-ins), and switch my ROW80 check-ins to Wednesdays. No blogging on weekends anymore.
*When it’s homeschool time, focus on that. Social Media and Blogging and the WIP are on the farthest burner during that time. Family first.
*Go back to the five minute ‘test mile’ theory. I’m in the heat of the last trimester energy drain, and it’s okay that my body is tired and demanding rest. *mantra* I am not a wimp. I am not a wimp. I am not a wimp…
*Allow myself to nest, and make lists, even if it drives the rest of my family nutso. 🙂
*Continue with the whole foods breakfasts, and add in lunches. This goal is so very YUM!
