Much of last two weeks was spent preparing for, enjoying, and recovering from my trip to San Antonio, which was quite enjoyable. The result was that I didn’t get much done in terms of running or writing or financially, but since I gave myself permission to take it easy, that’s fine.
The one thing I did manage to do this week was to do a preliminary sorting of the stacks of paperwork in my bedroom, which has allowed me to locate some of the past tax information I needed. I now have a stack of paperwork that needs to be sorted into years and eventually filed, and I have another stack of paper work that needs to be shredded. It feels really good to be getting this done.
I also found out that the short story I submitted to Rustblind & Silverbright, an anthology of speculative fiction set in train stations. While I’m sad to have been rejected, I’m happy to say that it was a rather positive rejection and I’m confident the story will find its proper home.
Things to do in the coming week:
â€“ Complete Chapter two of novel
â€“ Submit the rejected short story to another publication
â€“ Walk/Run at least three days at least 2 miles each day (0/3)
â€“ Contact my sisters accountant to find out about setting up an IRA
â€“ Get title transferred on my new car (I don’t know why I keep forgetting to do this)
â€“ Get taxes done
â€“ Get title transferred on my new car (I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet…. screw you, autopilot)
â€“ Either purchase new a new filing cabinet(s), and/or buy folders/large envelopes, and/or go through the process of sorting and putting everything in its place
â€“ Get data transferred from the old computer to the new one (may require giving up my computer for a few days)
