I have made a goal of getting back to consistent writing and submitting this year. I haven’t written anything longer than a short story yet, but I have penned numerous new poems and even had a couple of those accepted, so that portion of my life is going fairly well right now.
Doing daily submissions (up to three a day goal this month) has stifled my cleaning a bit. The one housewifely thing that I have done fairly consistently (though the last two or three weeks have been rough for one reason or another) is cook dinner.
We signed up for Hello Fresh and I have found that cooking can be fun if you are feeling top of your game and have the right utensils to hand. I was doing really well for awhile:
And then I didn’t feel well for a few days, and the kitchen started filling up with dirty dishes, and it became harder and harder to find the necessary implements…but I’m feeling better now, and we took a week off of deliveries to see if we can get caught up. A majority of the dishes have been washed, and I can see my counters again…
I am not a one-and-done housekeeper…I am a constant work in progress. But I will try not to be gone so long next time. 😉
