I fell into a terrible slump in early September. Dealing with my generalized anxiety, COVID-19, work stress, and feeling like a failure. But, I’ve picked myself up, and I’m ready to get back to the blog!
Here were my goals for the month of September:
Celebrate our 10-year dating anniversary! — Accomplished!
Get the photos and other wall hanging items off the floor in my office and get them on the walls. — Did not accomplish.
Make at least one thrift store donation run. — Accomplished!
Finish getting my P.E.O. President materials organized. — Semi-Achieved.
Publish a post about my July Camp NaNoWriMo session. — Did not accomplish.
List at least one of my three boxes of American Girl items for sale. — Accomplished!
Keep up with my pen pals! — Did not accomplish.
Publish at least one Writing Prompt post. — Did not accomplish.
Put away all the clean laundry. — Did not accomplish.
Finish re-organizing the filing system. — Did not accomplish.
Finish de-cluttering the dining room buffet. — Did not accomplish.
Al and I celebrated the 10th anniversary of our first date by getting take-out dinner from a wonderful local restaurant, Lobscouser.
September was full of working from home, going into the office a bit more frequently, paying off more credit card debt, and developing some strategies for the next few months. I feel like I’ve been more on top of things with the house, with the exception of my office. I need to get that mojo back!
I’m also really close to finishing the book I’m reading. It’s been a breath of fresh air, but I’ve been so tired at night that I don’t have the energy to read more than a few pages. We have enjoyed sitting on our porch more often, now that the weather is cooler.
In terms of writing, I made some more notes about my second draft. I need to go back into it and add a few more things before sending it back to my readers. I’m long past my self-imposed deadline of getting it to them (originally the end of August), but I will persevere in October!
I’m excited to participate in NaNoWriMo in November, but I currently have no idea what I’m doing for it yet.
What about you? Did you have any goals for the month of September?
