Microseismograph Monday

microseismograph ~ instrument for recording small or distant earthquakes

Did anyone local hear/feel that loud boom around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday? Apparently a meteor struck somewhere to the north of us. You can read up about it HERE. I think my favourite explanation is, it being May the 4th, it was the Millennium Falcon firing off a salute as it flew by. ;-)

If I could sum up last week in one word, that word would be struggle.

It was actually a good week to test out the ability of my daily lists to help me get things done even when I didn't feel like doing anything. Tuesday and Wednesday had the added bonus of being stormy, but I made out my daily to-do lists and item by item I forced myself to get things done, if for no other reason than so I could have the fleeting satisfaction of crossing them off my list.

Thursday, however, I fell off the list wagon completely and didn't get one item crossed off. Friday was another day though, and things actually started to pick up. I had high hopes for the weekend, until . . .

Late Friday night I was hit with a severe IBS attack which lasted right through until Sunday. I pulled myself together just long enough on Saturday to attended the St. Peter's book sale, but most of the weekend was spent in my jammies, curled up in the recliner. Good thing I hadn't planned on getting anything specific done.

I'm starting out this week with the belief I'm going to do better. After all, it can't be worse than last week, right? *knock wood* And maybe by believing I'm going to have a good week I'll actually have one for a change. :-)

The one thing that was not getting crossed off my list most days last week was writing. And by writing I mean something other than blog posts and emails. I actually did get some other writing done on Friday, and it felt good. I want to feel that this week.

So cross your fingers for me - I have a feeling I'm going to need all the help I can get. :-D
