August 1 ROW Check-in

Despite the cold my hubby shared with me, things are pretty much on track.


This Week

~ still no word from the potential buyer of my son’s computer

~ Skype call to my son will have to happen some weekend; he doesn’t always have Internet access during the work week

~ invite daughter to hang out on Friday (done; hopefully, she’ll be able to)

~ finalize arrangements to go out for dinner next week with a couple who share our anniversary, same year and everything; too cool!

~ still contemplating where to go for a weekend away with my hubby


The blogging is on track.

Research possible e-publishing options for a client and me – to begin in earnest this coming weekend


My goal was to complete the first edit of my client’s children’s chapbook by Saturday. This is very doable.

I’m still waiting for a children’s picture book manuscript, but the author has been too busy to get it sent off.


I’ve been asked to write a guest blog, so I hope to get that done this week. That will count as one submission.

Plus, I’m looking into some writing contests.


I’m behind in my fiction and non-fiction reading, but I hope to get a fair amount done on the weekend.


The cold kicked my butt, but it’s on the way out, so I should be able to get back at it tomorrow.

Additional Fitness Goals

~ eat dessert only on weekends <averting eyes and humming>

~ lose at least two pounds between Monday, July 30 and Sunday, August 5 (I’m going to have to change the start date to Wednesday, August 1 because I didn’t get around to weighing myself Monday morning.)

ROW-specific Goals

~ visit other ROWers’ sites weekly (check)

Thanks for stopping by. You are appreciated.

  1. Great progress on your goals! And my little trick for skimping on desserts is to have one small square of dark chocolate with a cup of coffee (or espresso) after dinner. It’s light on calories and kills that craving!

    For someone suffering with a cold, you’re doing exceptionally well! I hope you heal soon and that the writing flows.

    Cheers, Cate (ROW80)
