To be honest, I don’t wanna do this. I would normally talk about how my week went and then a bit about what’s coming up. But . . . This week sucked . . . hard . . . like a vacuum with something to prove. Right down to the very end too. If there was any good then it got overshadowed, so I don’t know what to do here.
I can’t even get into it because it’s either work or personal stuff that shouldn’t be aired in public. Things just kept going wrong. Were there pluses? Well, my son aced a science test. More importantly, he majorly aced a math test that he had to take on his own in school and did it without needing his extra time. He came close to failing this subject in the first quarter, but he’s done amazing now. So, it goes to show how far he can go when he gets comfortable and we figure out his nuances. His reward, thought it wasn’t intended to be that, is a father/son trip to the zoo tomorrow. I’ll try to get some good pics for a Sunday post because I’m running out of ideas for those.
Let’s see . . . I didn’t get any writing done. I do get the first covid vaccine shot today. I think the order differs from state or county though. Teachers got on the list here and I managed to snag a spot. I’ll be resting after that if the little guy lets me. Monday is the promise of video games since it’s a 3-day weekend. Maybe watch a movie or cartoons depending on what else we do. I should convince him to do some drawing too since it’s been a while. It’s very cold, so our activities are limited.
Next week might see some writing getting done around Thursday. Prior to that I have meetings and my son who I want to have time with. I have 25 sections left of Do I Need to Use a Dragon? and that might take me to the end of February. I thought I’d get one or two done this weekend while my son slept, but I’m not feeling it. I can feasibly get 15 done during the next period that he’s with his mom even with a party one that I’m going to one night. That leaves me 10 and then the hard part. What to do after that? I guess finally get back to outlining fiction while I figure out if I should send the tip book out for some people to look at. I’m still nervous about that because it’s about opinions, so I don’t know how beta readers take to that.
Only other stuff I did was watch some shows. I finished up ‘Slayers’ Seasons 4 and 5, so that entire anime series is under my belt. Can’t find the movies though. I started a smaller one called ‘Angel Links’ since ‘Disenchanted’ got new episodes yesterday. ‘Angel Links’ is 13 episodes and it’s connected to one of my favorite series called ‘Outlaw Star’. I put the intro up top. I don’t know if it’s a popular or obscure anime, but it was on when I was in college. I actually did a Halloween costume as the main character, who has bright red hair. The spray didn’t come out for a while and washing it the first night made it look like somebody exploded in the shower stall. Wish they did more. Anyway, that’s what I’m doing TV-wise.
Well, I’m not able to drag myself along any more. Next weekend should have more since I get father/son time and a few more stories. I hope. Honestly, I thought this week was going to be better than the last. I said it out loud and everything short of severe injury happened. I say severe because I ended up stabbing my thumb with a broken staple that a kid left in a stapler. Is anybody really surprised at my luck lately?
Goals of the week:
- Zoo trip tomorrow.
- Time with sun.
- Covid shot in a few hours.
- Survive everything else.
- Try to get some extra sleep. Been hard since I’ve had some strange sleep things happen this week. With the stress, is anyone surprised? I used that already. Sorry.
- Put on socks or slippers soon.
- Crud! I forgot the laundry while I write this Friday night.
