Also: The theme of this week is deceleration.

Slamming the brakes on my high level of activity would be almost as damaging as continuing unabated. So. Deceleration.

And I'm looking at all the stuff I have to do, and not panicking, and planning to deal with it in an organized fashion - and reminding myself that I have time.

I got rather a lot done today. Much of it was online, to the point that I'm having a twinge of RSI trouble - will be heading offline after this, and saving my big workspace project for tomorrow.

My goals for this week:

* Reorganize hall closet
* Reorganize office closet
* Check out new yoga place
* Log 10 hours of paying work

...which probably sounds small to you, but hey. When I look at everything and panic, I need to remind myself that it's okay to set smallish goals so's not to get so overwhelmed.

I'm really excited about the incoming art supplies, and looking forward to dedicating a chunk of next week to Making Stuff.

What are your goals for this week? And what are you looking forward to?

This week I have three doctor's appointments (one for botox shot, one for braces for my legs, one with my primary care guy for meds adjustment) and sean's getting assessed by the developmental disabilities people. After all that crap, I desperately want a cookie. :P
I am looking forward to the weekend, because it's my wedding anniversary and a friend of ours is taking the child for TWO WHOLE DAYS and I can do things like SLEEP and walk around NAKED whenever I WANT TO.

First of all, I don't think there's anything small about a task list that includes the phrase "Reorganize closet" not once but twice.

My goals this week are:
-Get up in the morning to work out Tues - Thurs
-Continue eating plan (fruit with breakfast, salad for lunch, full dinner with vegetables) for rest of week
-Clean off my desk (we moved a month ago, and it's the last remaining bastion of disorder)
-Set up training for new financial system for my sorority (I'm a chapter advisor)
-Continue working on the Great As-Yet-Untitled Zombie Novella

As I am recovering from the Worst Cold Ever (still going on as we close on week #3!), my goals are simply this:
* apply for DC license
* review and see what's possible for Arlington Co and City of Alex. licenses
* reread massage school notes and texts
* mentally prepare for Friday's practical interview
* hopefully be well enough to do practice massages on Thursday
* be entirely well by Friday so that I can win the interview, walk again and have sex with my ex, provided I didn't get him sick when I saw him last week (I wasn't going to kiss him.. really! but um, he, ah.. misses me and somehow his tongue got in my mouth and I'm sure, while enjoyable and damn hard to argue with, that's very germ-sharey).

Oh and it'd be nice if I could start temping before I start panicking about April's bills.

My goals?

Survive.
Continue to breath
Recover from whooping cough variant that's infected my lungs.
Get a new job after being fired from previous one for being sick [yes, they can do that here].
Try not to spiral down into crushing depression again.


Anything else is subject to negotiation.

This week has already been full of alarmingly productive productivity, sort of.

Yesterday was jumping through hoops to get to the dental clinic I went to today to have Not Enough Work Done on a broken tooth. This morning, I had my tooth filled with metal. Am about to head right back outside in the damn cold to drop off a CV.

tomorrow, I'm hoping for nothing but knitting. Gah.
