I figured I would do one last check in. Maybe next week I can actually do an accountability post again. Last week I was still really sick with a sinus infection. I wasn’t trying to make any goals but get better.

I managed 4800 words last week. I’ll take it. I’m hoping to get back on track this week. Maybe even finish the novel. It was so nice this morning, waking up and realizing that I was back as it were. I had thoughts about the novel, thoughts about the world, thoughts about how this novel was going to end.

There may not be any writing today. At least not fiction writing. I need to figure out the next part of the novel. So today might just be a planning day. And then tomorrow I’ll write.

One of the other things that has been going on, that I haven’t really been talking about, has been that in addition to everything else, my cat hasn’t been eating. She wasn’t sick. She was just being fussy. Sometimes, she gets that way.

Unfortunately, I had to break down and start feeding her kitty crack. (Fancy Feast). The good news is that she’s eating again. The crack is doing its job. We’ve tried mixing it half-and-half, good food to bad food. She won’t eat it. She only wants the crack at this point.

Kiera will be 17 this year. In fact, in March we will be celebrating our 16th Gotcha day. I don’t know how long my cat will last. Even with the unhealthy food, she’s still acting very much like her old self. She races around the house like a crazy thing on a regular basis. She plays either by herself or with us. She really likes curling up in my lap and purring.

She has had a good life.

It’s been five months since I had knee surgery. I am still not to the point where I think this was the best decision I ever made.


At this time, I can now stretch out my leg completely. I could not do that before the operation. When I check, the back of my still healing knee is pressing into the ground the exact same amount as the knee on the non-operated side.

Do I still have pain in my knee? Yes. Not bad, but constant. Because I didn’t walk much last week, my knee is also very stiff today. I intend on walking between 7 to 8000 steps today. On a normal day, without pushing, I easily average about 5700 steps a day.

I guess that’s it for me today. I have goals for today, as well as goals for the week. For the first time in a couple weeks, I have actually written down goals on my whiteboard again.

How do you keep track of weekly goals?
