Last school holidays I kept a list of what I did to show how I got everything done. Now, I’m making it a regular occurrence throughout the year.
The school holidays were on from July 7th to July 21st, but since there was another week after that, it’s made it three weeks since I’ve been here, and in that time I didn’t get what I thought I’d get done.
And it’s not all about writing. In fact, I wasn’t even sure if I’d get any writing done this time and I didn’t. Purely because I found that we had quite a few appointments and other things to deal with, so, instead of writing, I got stuck into other business stuff that needed getting out of the way for the fourth quarter of the year and the super-secret squirrel news I’ve got coming.
Here’s a list of what I did…
Friday 7th – first half of clothes washing, paperwork, editing of current novel
Saturday 8th – second half clothes washing, more editing, more paperwork
Sunday 9th – editing kids’ books for corrections, nap due to meds
Monday 10th – editing kid’s books for corrections, nap due to meds
Tuesday 11th – editing kid’s books for corrections, nap due to meds, got off damn meds coz can’t work when I’m tired and yawning all the time.
Wednesday 12th – blog posts for Jewel Divas Style, paperwork, editing of next novel.
Thursday 13th – shopping, library, searched for blog templates online, uploaded corrected versions of my kids’ books online.
Friday 14th – first half of clothes washing, paperwork, editing of kids’ books, searched for blog templates.
Saturday 15th – got GSuite sorted for the new business coming. Edited future novel.
Sunday 16th – LJD email stuff, write out this post and did other Porn Star Brothers stuff.
Monday 17th – JDS email stuff for GSuite, paperwork, got legal stuff done online, paid bills etc, found out one of my websites was down and emailed my hosting company to sort it out. They blamed gsuite and told me to delete everything I’d just done even though it worked on three other domains and didn’t shut them down.
Tuesday 18th – cleaner came so didn’t get to do too much except potter around online and finish up legal stuff. Website was still down and hosting company promised to fix it.
Wednesday 19th – two doctors appointments and the bank, took a break.
Thursday 20th – shopping, library, chiro, took a break.
Friday 21st – clothes washing, good day so got it all done and outside in the sun, tried to deal with hosting company that still had not fixed my website and emailed them all day. Got no replies so I went in search of new hosting companies. Migraine!
Saturday 22nd – migraine still around so had a sleep in for a few extra hours.
Sunday 23rd – Second edit of the novel due next march, only got 3/4 of the way through as it’s long and went to bed at 2 a.m.
Monday 24th – Finished off the edit for the novel, searched for hosting companies and tried to figure out who to go with, got this blog post scheduled.
Tuesday 25th – Tried to get other business stuff done.
Wednesday 26th – Same as yesterday.
Thursday 27th – shopping, library, took a break.
Friday 28th – clothes washing, got other things done.
That’s about it. Admittedly, as much as I’d love to actually write on the holiday, it doesn’t always happen, so it’s back to the grind of every schedules, editing, sorting, paperwork etc, etc, etc…
You always impress me with how busy you are and all the things you do. I am sorry to read that you are having continued health problems.
