New Years Day: I'm already behind! This year is pretty much lined up with activities and work, family stuff, too. Yesterday, the day before Jan 1 was special. I didn't get everything done that I'd wanted, preparing for a quiet evening, welcoming in 2008. I usually try for a clean desk, a clean mind, and straighten a few things.
But yesterday didn't go that way. Flu abounds around here and I made chicken soup for friends and didn't have a planned year-end coffee with a good friend, both with different flus.
Didn't light the fireplace, due to our heavy winds. But it is a nice mood thingie for the end of the year.
As a self-employed writer (a high percentage have day jobs), I made my usual stop for office supplies, something I actually like to do. At the end of the year, you'll find people crammed into the supply stores, stocking up.
That's a usual year-end deal, so is working with taxes, plugging the final stuff into spreadsheets. I'm a little ahead on that this year as I've been keeping up somewhat.
But so far as scheduling in 2008, I'm already set for some guest blogging, which I love and an appearance I haven't attended before, pretty happy about this one. Then there's the usual supply of articles, etc. and due dates, these for groups/newsletters. (I belong to a lot.) To keep all this in line, I tried calendars, I tried desk calendars, mini ones and Day Timers. But the only thing I've been able to do successfully, birthdays, family stuff, included is a PDA. Can't seem to manage without one. Addresses, business contacts and family, birthdays, stats on new babies, etc., all in electronic files.
Hey-ho, 2008. I'm ready with 2 books, 2 and 3 of the Aisling Psychic Triplet Trilogy, A STRANGER'S TOUCH 4/08 and FOR HER EYES ONLY 10/08. I'm just starting on those promotions, more to schedule. :)
So I'd better get to work. We'll deal with goals later. And yes, I have a few :)
