Monday Night Check-In
That's the sound of me sitting down in my office chair after fetching my 14th cup of coffee.
That's the sound of everything I thought I'd get done hitting me up the side of the head.
I focused on the important, so I'm happy.
Done! 1. -- take an inventory of the pantry and freezer, plan all of our dinners for January and make a shopping list.
Done! 2. --Finish running off the duplicates of the calendar I made for my Mom.
Done! 3. --Take the calendars Staples to be bound. Mail them.
uh, no. 4. Write up my Statement of Intent for Cathy Zielske's Big Picture Class: Move More, Eat Well (MMEW).
nope, not done, either 5. Finish my pre-class assignment for MMEW.
eeew. Not done. 6. Vacuum the stairs.
in progress. 7. Work on my goals for 2012. Create a list of specific ones to work on for January, specifically. In other words, get specific!
not going to do. Too late. 7b: Finish post of top 11 accomplishments in 2011.
in progress. 8. Create my project list for January.
Done! 9. Get out to a scrapbook store and buy kraft coloured cardstock.
1/2 done. 10. Find a hair salon we can afford and within walking distance and make hair appointments for my daughter and I. (I found a place in B.C. which will accept 9" pony tail of my grey hair to make into a wig for Cancer patients.)
I made some calls. The one nearest me charges $50 (average $60) for a women's cut. If I want the epynonymous owner, however, I have to pay $85.00 (yikes!) A child's cut is $25 to 30. These folks are not open on Mondays (the only day I have the vehicle). They are, however, within 10 minutes walking distance.
The least expensive place is a little farther away, (maybe 15-20 minutes?) at $40.00 for a woman's cut and $20.00 for a child's.
By the by, I am aware that there are "chains" --like Supercuts-- which will hack off my hair for $20 or so--but my experience with places like that is what drove me to grow my hair out in the first place!
Oh and MOST important--I'm 2 for 2 for exercise! Two sessions in two days--yay! AND, I signed up for a class called "women on weights" which starts next Sunday.
I'm feeling super anxious and excited about everything I want to do this year, this month, this week. But I really can't think about it until we get out and shop, get home and put it all away. Tomorrow. Then, I'll breathe again.
