After a looooong week and a thankful weekend at home. I was forced to relax Saturday as I was not feeling at all well. (Not sure what it was specifically, but man did my brain not want to work.) Still taking it lightly today. Keeping to more physical activities, instead of brain related ones.
AFTER ACTION REVIEW:
1) Up to date with line edits and emails. I tried to get vastly ahead in this by doing all of the story formatting. While I didn't finish the major stretch goal I did get a lot done which will make things a lot easier later in the month.
2) I haven't been doing my 8K a day because I was too busy. Since I was in training all week I couldn't get in extra steps at work either. Hopefully amping things back up to normal this week. (Hopefully the weather is cooler so I want to go out during lunch.) I have been keeping up with the meal plan and have been slowly going through the backlog of stuff in my house, which is lovely~
3) I tried out at least six apps for learning Japanese travel phrases specifically. I ended up choosing two of them for long term use.
1) Watched the first five episodes of GoT S4. (One of the accomplishments while being sick, lol.) Also watched the borrowed Deadpool 2 with the SO. Now I can return it, and cross that off the list.
2) Been reading more of my physical book. Going to start a new something to listen to soon, gotta figure out where my headset ended up while traveling.
3) Read more of diyMFA and the travel book.
4) Major over accomplishment here. At the start of the week I flung closer to 40 things while cleaning off one of the shelves of the bookcase in the living room. There was a lot of stuff that we haven't used since we moved into the house 4 years ago, so it was good to go through it again and put the space to better use.
Then on Sunday I was hit with the spring cleaning bug. (Yes it's the middle of summer, and the bug didn't care.) I took everything in the kitchen cabinets out of the cabinets. Washed the cabinets. Tossed old food and ratty towels etc. Decided to donate about 30 more things. Took out two huge boxes of recycling. Reorganized everything that was left and put it all away. It doesn't look that much different on the outside, but everything is much more organized, easier to get to, and easier to find. For a day when brain function was low anyways it's a lovely way to improve overall living for a long time to come.
1) Keep up with line edits. Send follow-up emails on Monday. Work towards final product.
2) 8k a day by playing more HP. Put in an order for more meal plan food and pick it up. Make a trip to at least one of the farmers markets to get local veggies for the meal plan this week. (I've been craving veggies, and I will not deny this craving!) Exercise once.
3) Play one of the new Japanese phrase apps for 15 minutes a day. Particularly if I'm not feeling 100% see about catching up on an anime or two, without subtitles.
1) Either or: watch an episode of GoT or finalize a page of grandma's calendar. Either way check in to get the birthdates for two new family members to add them to the calendar.
2) Read more of this week's physical book. Find headset. Start to listen to something in the car. (Podcast or book is fine.)
3) Read more of diyMFA. Read more of traveling Japan book.
4) I've got another big organizational project in mind, and I'm sure that if I don't get to it I'll get annoyed, thus I'm making it a minigoal. The project is to completely clear out, clean, go through, organize, and put back in place the coat room and top of the basement stairs. This area should be a mini closet, but instead of storing things that are used semi-commonly it holds things that I don't want to take down to the basement right away, and then never end up going down there at all. I don't suspect that I'll get the whole thing done for this checkin, but if I could start working on it, by taking a couple loads of stuff into the basement and otherwise working on the clear out phase of things that would make things that much better this weekend when I go through it intensely.
5) Do the printed worksheet. Consider a character sheet/interview, or starting a timeline using Aeon.
