weekly accountability: Feb 6-12

Last week, my goal was to survive with no more illnesses, lost days of daycare, etc. I needed some time to catch up on grading/class prep. I actually managed to finish the book review I've been working on, so I got more done than I expected. Woo hoo!

I didn't meet all my goals, alas. Pumpkin was sick all day Monday. Bunny was home for the morning on Wednesday because the schools started late due to bad weather. (Her preschool follows the public school schedule, including snow days.) I missed part of this morning for the same reason. Still, I can't complain, since I actually got some things done.

My goal for this week is to write a couple of short grant proposals. And try not to get sick.


  1. I accomplished last week's goal of finishing edits to a paper. This week I need to do a short writeup for a newsletter. It's one of those things with no deadline that hangs over me for months while I meet other deadlines, so I'm hoping the anonymous online accountability here will give me the kick in the pants I sorely need.

  2. Oh, and good luck staying healthy! We've had 3 separate colds sweep the family in 4 weeks at my house, but reading about your family's bouts of real sickness makes me realize how much worse it could have been.

  3. Thanks! The illness load has just been insane this year. I think it's because the kids are in two separate daycares, so they bring home twice the germs. Plus my husband and I interact with students bringing germs in from a tri-state area. I can't wait until Spring!
