Resolution Update #3

For some reason this week came out better than expected:

1. Writing (Goal – 120,000 words/finish five stories and a novel): 4,068 words; one story. Pretty slow.

2. Publishing (Send out 110 manuscripts): I meant to send out stories on Wednesday but snow cancelled school and loused things up.

3. Read Finnegan’s Wake: More nothing.

4. Read Shakespeare’s sonnets: 60 of the 154.

5. Visit five new libraries: Thanks, snow.

6. 5,000 Push ups/8,000 Leg lifts: 321 push ups; 465 leg lifts.

7. Running: 30.3 miles all on the elliptical, making it 111.88 for the year.

8. Lose 26 pounds: An All-You-Can-Eat Chinese buffet, a bag of chocolate – covered raisins, a big bag of M & Ms, and two Double Quarter Pounders for dinner last night, and I still lost 2.3 pounds, 18.9 for the year.

How’d that happened?

9. 100 photos of different species: 17

House cat, Dog

Bullfrog tadpole

Betta, Blood parrot cichlid, Guppies, Angelfish, Pictus catfish

Caliworm (Black Soldier Fly)

Ghost shrimp

Christmas cactus, Bell pepper, Purple waffle plant, Monk’s hood cactus

10. Year of Mercy: Donated books to the library which I’m counting as instructing the ignorant.
