Goal Post: Homestretch with Pulled Muscles

This wasn’t as eventful a week as I had hoped.  I think.  Maybe I wanted it to be low key and it was a success.  Last weekend is a blur of schoolwork, video game time, and other events that I can barely remember.  So, what can I recall?

This was the last full week of classes of the 2021-2022 school year for me and my son.  It means we only have two days of classes and finals left.  I doubt it’s going to be relaxing since this is going to be a scramble to get everything done.  Always is, so I’m not going in expecting anything else.  I’ll be pleasantly surprised if things are quiet.  That or full of paranoia that something is about to go horribly wrong.  Guessing controlled chaos is the best option.

Writing was slightly productive.  I only got 2 of 3 chapter sections done during the week because I ran out of steam last night.  Had enough energy to make this post and finish getting things ready for the weekend.  My hope is to finish the current chapter and the next one by the end of the weekend.  Leaves me with 15 chapters to do, which could day 17 days if one writes 3 sections each day.  I’ll probably get a little in during the week too, so maybe I’ll make better time than I thought.

On the nights I had no energy for writing, I finished putting this together:

Really hope that video works.  Fingers crossed.

Nothing else to really talk about it.  It’s been working, parenting, and writing when I can.  Only TV I’ve been watching is ‘Restaurant to Another World’, which is an anime about an Earth restaurant that people from another world can visit.  It’s cute.  Not a deep plot and totally episodic, but great when I’m tired and just wanting to unwind.

I had to wake up before 8 am today because I have to get my car into the shop.  Air conditioner is going just as the heat is coming in.  Gear shift doesn’t like smoothly going from drive to park too.  Figures.  Tomorrow, I wake up before 8 am to take care of something.  So, we’ll see how writing goes.  Getting the groove of Darwin and his new friend.  Introducing the last of this story’s main characters tomorrow after the morning stuff.  Getting worried about consistency, but Darwin is a kind of chaotic character with rigid habits.  That can make my head hurt, which means it might be a good thing that I ran out of whiskey last night.  Mind should be clear on this one.

Can’t think of anything else.  Probably due to being tired.  So, what are the goals of the week?

  1. Help son study for his finals.
  2. Work hard at work.
  3. Proctoring!
  4. Write at least 2 chapters of Darwin & the Halfling Hunt
  5. Biking, which is going well.
  6. Eat more yogurt
  7. Probably buy more yogurt for #6
  8. Get car fixed . . . That might bring some other plans into question.
  9. Beat the last Dream Log island in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3.

    Your week was really productive. I’m sorry I haven’t kept up on your projects but the title of Darwin sounds intriguing.

    And, yes, the video worked fine. Add background humming next time. 😉

    Your usual highly productive week that makes me tired to read about! What a fantastic globe – love it!


  3. As everyone has said the video of the globe worked. What a super project. The best for next week.


  4. I’m impressed, not only with the globe, but the fact that you made a personal video function on WordPress. I’ve never been able to do that.

    Glad you got some writing in. Hope the car repair can be done quickly and without too much fuss. Good luck with the coming week.


    • Car repair got done without much issue. Rest didn’t work out. Got an infection, which triggered another issue. So, I was writhing in pain for most of Saturday and recovering on Sunday. Hopefully it’s all over since I have work.
