Cordelia bought two t-shirts yesterday, one Totoro related and the other a Winnie-the-Pooh quote. Scott tells me that they were kind of pricey, but they fit, and she loves them, so…

We need to go grocery shopping, but figuring out when is difficult. I’m not sure it’s going to be possible today because Scott and Cordelia both have late afternoon dental appointments. I don’t think we’ll get home until after 6:00, and then Scott will need to shower.

Scott won’t necessarily be home in time to drive me and Cordelia to the dentist for her appointment which is at 4:15. It’s possible he could be, but I can’t count on it. She and I will need to leave at 3:15 to catch the bus or call for a cab then instead. I need to check to see if the buses are running on the usual schedule today or if they’re on a holiday schedule. It’s just a little bit above freezing, so the weather isn’t horrific, temperature-wise.

Scott’s mother is planning to have Cordelia and her fifteen year old cousin come up tomorrow to decorate gingerbread. Neither girl is hugely enthusiastic, but gingerbread is a family Christmas tradition. I expect it will last two or three more years. Usually, it happens before Christmas, but the timing didn’t work out this year.

I’m still contemplating New Year’s resolutions. I’m not sure that making them will be helpful to me, there are definitely things I want to do and to do regularly.

I want to walk a little every day. It’s harder now that it’s icy outside. I tend to like putting the walking off until late because that way I don’t discover that I’ve already overdone when something comes up that I need to do.

As a higher level than the walking, I’d love to get myself back to doing Sit and Be Fit (I think that Body Electric will take a lot longer before it’s feasible). I haven’t done that since I broke my foot in March of 2015 because it requires shifting furniture around. I could do the workout while sitting, but I need to move things out of the living room and bring in a chair.

That depends, though, on me figuring out the problems with my sleep schedule so that I have the physical resources for it. I’m going to be getting up with Cordelia every morning for the foreseeable future, and that’s very, very hard on me. So I suppose I should set getting to bed earlier as a goal. Scott needs to do it but never manages. Maybe we can both work on it. It’s just hard to go to bed when Cordelia does (10 p.m.) and not have any time without her telling us that she’s not interested in what we want to watch. Also, all three of us trying to get into the bathroom at once is, ah, challenging.

Going to bed earlier will also make family dinners pretty much impossible. If I go to bed at 10:00, I can’t eat after 7:00, and Scott is almost never ready to eat that early.

I want to write something every day, even if it’s just a sentence or two. I signed up for [community profile] inkingitout, and that has a goal for 75000 words in the next year. I don’t know that I can manage that, but I certainly won’t if I don’t try.

I’m committed to the Small Fandom Big Bang which means finishing a fic by the end of the month. I have about 9000 words on still another Amber fic. I’m looking at [community profile] chocolateboxcomm as something I could do. I don’t know, though. I didn’t see anything I’d actually want to request, and the minimum word count being low wouldn’t help me at all as I can’t write that short to save my life. I’m not sure I could do both that and the SFBB.

And, really, I kind of want to finish some of the WIP I’ve got.

List of fics for my own reference )

I want to eat more fruits and vegetables and less sugar/junk food. I don’t know if I can because of how my body sometimes reacts. If I were sure this would be a normal year with normal stress/anxiety/fatigue levels, I’d be more confident.

I set a goal of either twenty five or thirty books on GoodReads for 2017. I can’t remember which, and I have no idea if I’ll have the focus to actually do it. I’d like, as a subsidiary goal, to read some of the books I own as opposed to just fighting my way through library books. Maybe one book from my owned but unread shelf per month?

There are, of course, a bunch of things that I intend to do that I really absolutely have to do, things like my medical appointments and Cordelia’s. I need to get my eyes checked. I need to see my doctor about some things that are only just at the level of needing attention, things like the rash under my eyes. I just keep putting those off because they’re not immediately necessary. First attention goes to things that might blow up if not addressed.
