This last week's goals were great. It was so much fun reading and commenting on so many blogs again. I am also really glad I picked these goals because I now feel a lot better about myself. I posted recently (thanks to my goal of trying to post everyday) about watching too much TV on the internet again. I was beating myself up about this, thinking I was so lazy and weak. Well, now I can honestly blame some of it on Cheeks. Do you know how hard it is to read something to completion and then actually take the time to type a comment each time when you have a pooping, lap jumping, face scratching, hungry, keyboard kicking, hair pulling lump of angelic cuteness in your lap at all times? And if I'm not holding him I'm chasing him around the house pulling plastic bags and marbles out of his mouth or catching him as he falls. You see, Cheeks is now a lightening fast crawler who pulls himself up on things but can't get back down without konking his head on something. I'm tempted to get him a helmet. Anyway, because of this it is very hard to read cohesively and even harder to comment and even harder to actually write or post, or to do anything else constructive. But it doesn't take extra appendages, much brain power, or uninterrupted time to watch TV, does it? So, while I'm glad I'm still fighting against the brain sucking power of TV, I now realize that it is more about survival then just plain laziness.
Commenting on every new posting in my blog reader? Done everyday, except one where I had a mini breakdown caused by exhaustion.
Catching up on my reading projects. Not so good. I managed to almost finish one but these are long writings that require me to give serious thought and critiques about them, and that is just REALLY hard right now.
Posting everyday. I was close, but missed two days. One because I had no internet for 3/4ths of the day, and yesterday when I had my mini breakdown. A breakdown that enabled me to watch Survivor, Lie To Me, old episodes of Bones, and some British TV crime dramas while eating Nutella from a spoon.
It was a very good breakdown.
Now for this week? I'm pretty sure I'm going to need copious amounts of TV to survive this week's goal because I don't plan on getting much sleep. In fact I'm even tempted to take up coffee drinking and smoking for this one. NO, not really.
But I might envy those that do. =)
This week my goal is to train Cheeks to sleep in his crib. This will also require me to stop using his crib as a storage device, clean it, and move it. I'm going on a long trip soon without Cheeks, or any kids (yes, I will post about it soon), and Mr. Hotness isn't as genetically programed for co-sleeping as I am. So, you may see me commenting on your blogs at obscene hours of the night and I may eat my weight in Nutella, but I am determined to have Cheeks sleeping in his crib and sleeping on a schedule by the end of this week. Heaven help me!!!
