The weather where I am has been just beautiful: sunny and hot during the day with comfortable temps at night for sleeping. Usually when it gets hot I hole up inside my house because that means the dreaded humidity is here, but we've been lucky the past few days. Because of the nice weather I've been hanging out with my family (we've had one cook out so far, with another scheduled for today!), going to softball and little league games for my niece and nephew, and just having an all around good time. All this has been happening while helping my mom and sister with their massive garage sale so although I haven't gotten much writing in, I still consider the week a good one. Here's my update:
Writing: 4 out of 7. Not where I want to be, but it's a start. This week I will once again try to hit it every day with hopefully a bit more success. Word count was just under 4K so that, in my mind, is still progress.
Reading: The goal was to read a book in two weeks. I've read two in one week, and hope to finish the third today. Divergent by Veronica Roth (as suggested by Lauren) was so, so, so SO good. I started it Friday night at about 9pm and stayed up until 3am on Saturday morning to finish it. It was that good people! I bought book 2, Insurgent, for the Nook yesterday. I was going to wait until my birthday in 9 days but, I cracked. I just HAVE to see what happens!
Blogging: I wrote one blog post this week which is one of my favorites mainly because it is about Felicia Day and The Guild. I love the web series The Guild and their new music video just cracks me up. I also squealed like the total geek I am when my blog was mentioned in the #webseries daily on Thursday. (I know, I really am I total geek. I told you!) I have a writing related post for Monday in which I ask about characters and what happens when they lead the story in an unexpected direction so hopefully I can schedule that later and Blogger will behave. I will try to work on a few more for this week to get myself ahead.
Being Active: 6 out of 5! YAY!!! And let me just say, hauling boxes, unpacking, repacking, running up and down the stairs, chasing the dog when he got loose, and all other garage sale related activities are exhausting. I've been so tired the last few days that every muscle in my body has been screaming at me. I am so counting all this physical activity as part of 'being active'!
All in all it's been a mixed bag in terms of results, but even though I didn't quite hit all my targets, I am still happy with the progress. As I said last Sunday, my goals are about forming new habits and I know that it won't happen overnight. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and good luck with your goals!
