The Nap!

Yesterday was a day of unexpected obstacles. Nothing seemed to fit. I bought the pieces to go through the wall to the chimney. (Remember the big hole in the wall?) Well, the hole didn’t really meet up with the chimney correctly, so I had to enlarge it. Enlarging it meant spending nearly five hours swinging a five pound hammer.  Yes I succeeded in making it the right size, but today I am paying for the effort expended.

 New stove out of the crate. Still not installed. sigh!

I had many chores on my to-do list for today, but all were set aside in favor of the sacred Nap. It has been too long since I honored the Goddess of the Nap and today she demanded her due. After we walked the dogs I curled up on the couch and spend the day with the Lady of Rest. I awakened again about four, somewhat refreshed and ready to face the world once again. My beautiful partner changed the date on the to-do like to Monday.  Love her.
Okay, next post I will announce the winners of the draw. Someone will win a $25.00 gift coupon from The Purple Raven Boutique.
 and someone will win a $25.00 coupon from Powder River Editing. 

Now for round four of this year’s ROW80 efforts.  Life is extremely busy right now, so I will try to keep the goals within reach.

Goals:
1.      Write 5000 words per week until first draft of WIP is complete.
2.      Accept more requests for interviews. (Currently I only do about one in five. Bad me! I’m told I need to open up and get over my shyness.)
3.      Read and comment on at least one blog per day.
Well, that’s it for me this time folks. If I manage to accomplish all the non-writerly things I have on my plate I may add a few more, but for now, this is it.  I wish you all great success with your goals and if I can help you in any way, please don’t hesitate to ask.

  1. Looks like you have some good goals for ROW80. I failed so badly in the last round, I'm not sure I'm up for trying it again. I do want to set goals for myself, though.

  2. Hey Alana, don't beat yourself up over it girl. It doesn't always work. The idea is to set the goals so they are attainable without killer stress. They can be adjusted anytime if life takes a sudden twist. (As it often does) Another trick I have found helpful is to enlist a friend who will nag you to keep you on track.
    Give it another chance; give yourself another chance to succeed. You can do it, yes you can!

  3. Nice goals, Prudence. Somehow I never thought of you as shy, at least not online. Best of luck with the stove install, sounds like a "colorful language" inspiring task to me 🙂
