weekly accountability: January 30-Feb 5

No, I didn't get all of my goals done this week.

Seriously, this was one of those weeks that makes me want to throw in the towel and go herd goats. Surely, goatherding is more compatible than academia with childrearing? Between cancelled preschool, and days off for our caregiver, and the caregiver's sickness, and Pumpkin's sickness, and 3 evenings lost to meetings, I got nothing done.

Actually, that's not true, I just didn't get finished with the book review for this week, because I spent the time I did have massively over-engineering the project. I always do this, and it really cuts down on my productivity. The review can only be 750 words, but I have 17 pages (single spaced!) of notes, and then I wrote an outline that's longer than the damn review! Typical.

I'm not making any goals for next week. If I can just get my classes prepped and keep my kids healthy, I'll have done my best.

  1. Technically, I met my goals-- I did finish my paper, and I never specified that it was going to be GOOD last week... It's too long and poorly organized, so it's going to require quite a bit more editing. So, finishing that is my goal this week.
