#ROW80 – Round 1 – Check-in 3

ROW80 2019 – Round 1 – Check-in 3

Hi everyone!

This week’s a bit crazy with going back to work and everything else on the personal front. On the plus side, we’re still moving forward at a nice pace on both the wedding planning and the house. But we’re very tired, especially as our second baby girl is teething and therefore spending eventful nights…

I’m still working on my writing very regularly (I’m back on a daily basis, even though it’s sometimes very little) and I’ve actually got quite a few things done, so yay for that. =)

I won’t tell much more as I honestly don’t have much time to myself today, wih lots of new students in a very short time. As my schedule is now almost full, things should get into pace for a few months soon enough, but for now, got to go!

Take care and have a great week! 

Color code
red=0-9%
1025%
2645%
4660%
Over 60%, I use various shades of green, 100% being this flashy green.
Purple is for projects that are currently on hiatus: dark purple means there’s still a lot to do while mauve is for projects that are well advanced.
Finally blue is for comments on my progress since I last checked in.
Hope you’ll enjoy these rainbow posts. 😉

    1. I try to, though it’s harder when you feel like it’s really small. With ROW80 however, I look at it twice a week and see how much I’ve accomplished. It helps a lot!!
