sunday afternoon reflections

Sometimes I get to the end of a day and feel guilty for not doing enough. Not making enough progress on my university work; not sewing more; not spending time doing "fun stuff". Sometimes I get to the end of the day, and I struggle to verbalise what I have done. I might have slept in and wasted time looking at blogs and internet sites, then procrastinated when it came to university work. I look around the house in the evening, and of course, it is a mess. My notebook page has today's date on it but not much work. And to top it off, I have no idea what to prepare for dinner.

This weekend I tried to make the best of my time. Not only did I write up my university Immunology notes and help C with his upcoming exam, I also made time for a beachside walk with C and a night out at the movies on Saturday.

C is about to head off to work so I will shortly have the house to myself. Tonight I want to spend an hour or so cleaning up the house, make a menu plan for dinners for the week ahead, listen to a few lectures I have skipped and get some sewing done. Gee, that's a lot now that I see it typed out.

I also want to squeeze in a 3km run. Following Michelle Bridges 12WBT challenge to move 30km this week I have done 27km thus far. I am really keen to tick this challenge off as I haven't gone well with the others. I need a 'win' to keep me motivated.


  1. Hi Jessica!
    Did you fit in the 3km run? I'm so impressed you with your effort in the 30km challenge! You sound like you certainly have your plate full and yet you made time to work on it. I need to take a page out of your book.

    Look forward to next week's challenge and how you go.

    1. Yes, I did get the final 3km done (but 1km of it was walking!). It's such a good feeling to have accomplished the challenge as it sure was a tough one.

      Thanks so much for your support.

  2. Nice work on the 27km! I hope you got in that 3km too :-)

    Totally get what you mean about not "doing" enough. The lure of the computer! I think I will have to set myself some limits.

  3. And the TV! I am always suprised how much time goes by when doing mindless things.
