Asha Enters 2022 Slowly

2022

Excited Happy New Year GIF

Looking forward to whatever this year holds and the goals that I'm looking to achieve this year! :)

I'm including a list of my goals for 2022 here. (The link is to my battle logs)

Β 

Wanted to start out with a challenge involving things that just need to happen. I know for sure a couple of these will be in multiple challenges at the start of this year (basically till Baby comes).

Β 

Goals:

πŸ’Š (V)itamins - Really need to stay consistent with my vitamins right now. I can feel it in my body when I don't take them as often as I should. Just makes me feel like crap.

> I've found counting them out ahead of time at the beginning of the week helps a lot, so I plan to do that on either Sundays or Mondays (whichever is least tiring that week).

Β 

πŸ†™ (S)tretching - I've found that not working leaves me sitting around the house a lot more (whether on my phone or doing other things like crafts or whatever). I need to remember to stretch. I plan to either stretch in some way or do yoga every day. I might throw a workout in every now and then depending on how I'm feeling.

Β 

🧹 (C)lean - 2021 was a crazy busy year for the most part, and then I got pregnant and felt like crap for the longest time (thanks morning sickness.....πŸ˜’). Having said that, my house is kinda a mess. My goal is to work on getting things clean/organized for at least 5 min every day.

> If things don't seem like they're getting done as fast as I'd like, I might up that to 10 min every day.

Β 

βœ’οΈ (D)rawing - I'd like to get more into my art stuff again. It's a great stress relief for me and plus, it's fun! :) My goal is to draw something at least once a week.

> I'm considering using the weekly prompts from Inktober52.

Put together enough small wins over a long enough period of time, and you’ll find yourself in high level gear fighting dragons before you know it.

Sunday was a good restful day. I don't think I slept well last night though, cause I feel so drained today. πŸ˜• Was able to get some laundry done, so that was nice. :)

Inktober hasn't put up the prompt for this week yet, so I might work on a piece that needs finished and see how far I can get it this week.

Monday was good. Got to hang out with my sister. Did some simple stretches and was finally able to go to the chiropractor for a much needed adjustment. It was a long day, and ended with finding my fish close to dead. πŸ˜• I'm really hoping he survives, cause Idk if I can handle losing him rn......

Β 

Edit: Oh....I also did laundry. So yay!

Tuesday was good. Got some yoga in (like 30 min, so that was nice). Got a decent amount of dishes done. Didn't do anything drawing wise, but pulled out a sketch book and found projects to finish. One was a whole lot closer than I thought it was, so that makes me happy. :)

Marvin is doing a bit better. Still seems kinda weak, but he's moving around more.

Wednesday and Thursday were good.

Didn't do a whole lot on Wednesday. I did make a card though. :) (I'd share a picture, but I totally forgot to take one!!! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ)

> Found out that Inktober is posting the weekly prompts on Thursdays this year. Which is fine, but totally annoying for people like me who put things off......lol.

Β 

Thursday I spent the majority of my waking hours cleaning a house for the cleaning company I work for on occasion. It was nice to be back at it again. :)

If I actually draw something from the prompts, then yes. lol. I'll note which prompt it's from. Otherwise, I'll just post stuff as I work on them with other drawing/art projects.

> I pulled out an old one and worked on it a bit. Will post a current picture of it soon. :)

Β 

Slowly but surely. :) Hoping to get stuff relatively organized before we move.

Β 

Thank you. I think he will be. Our apartment has been WAY too cold recently (and we don't have a thermostat πŸ˜•), so I think his bowl was too cold. Changed his water and he seems to be getting better. A little weak still though.

D was worried about leaving him alone, so we brought him with us to my parents' this weekend.

Friday was good. Did some yoga and chilled. Pulled out an old commission piece and worked on that for a little bit.

D took me on a date after work. It was super nice and definitely needed!

We both slept really well last night. :)

The weekend was good overall. Church was good. We had a potluck for lunch and then a hang out in the evening. It was nice, but made for a long night.

Monday and Tuesday were good. Mostly just chilled. Got some laundry done on Monday. My hip has been bothering me the past few days though. πŸ˜• I've been stretching it, but nothing seems to be helping rn. Baby is doing well and growing fast! :) D and I decided to leave Marvin with my parents for a little bit until we can figure out the best way to warm up the apartment. Missing him more than I thought I would, but glad I don't have to worry about him freezing to death.

Wednesday was a good day. Goals wise it wasn't the best, but it was still a good day. Even made it to church in the evening, which was nice. :)

Β 

Today has been good. Finally got all the dishes cleaned!!! Put laundry away as well. Hoping to get some drawing in either this evening or tomorrow.

The weekend was good. We celebrated my grandpa's 70th birthday Saturday with a small party/outing. We all went Fowling. It's basically a mix between bowling and football. Lots of fun!!!

Sunday was a nice chill day. Went to church and then hung out with family for the day.

Β Did pretty okay this week. Didn't do as well as I would have like with the cleaning. Kinda wish I took more time for drawing, but it is what it is.....

Β 

Still having a bit of issue with the apartment, so taking a week to stay with my family while things hopefully get sorted out. I'm glad that it's a comfortable spot for both of us but at the same time, Ik that D and I both enjoy having our own space sometimes, so we'll see what this week looks like. lol

> As for my cleaning goal, because I probably won't be home to organize anything, I'm not going to keep track of that goal this week.

It's been a long, but good week so far.

I keep telling myself I'm going to do yoga tomorrow, but it's not happening.... The extent of my drawing this week has just been small doodles again. Would really like to pull out my sketchbook and actually work on something.

Tuesday I helped cleaned two residential houses. It was nice to get back to a bit of work, but it was a decently long day. The first house took us about 4 hours. 😴 The other one is probs my favorite house to clean, cause she keeps it so clean it really doesn't need anything done to it. lol.

Β 

Update on Marvin: He's doing SOOOOO much better! He's back to being super active and interacting with people. Which has been nice to see. :)

Β 

Β 

Also, a rant.....

Spoiler

I'm supposed to be a bridesmaid for a friend in March. At that point, I'll be approx. 7 months pregnant. She decided on the dresses for us to get and I was happy about her decision cause I'll be able to wear it while I'm pregnant as well as when I'm not. (It's an infinity dress, so the material stretches nicely and I won't have to worry about size with my growing stomach.) But now one of the other bridesmaids is asking about all of us getting a different dress cause she doesn't like the way this one fits her (I'm not sure which of the two sizes she got, but says it's tight in an unflattering way). I understand her complaint, but at the same time I really don't have the money to throw into ANOTHER dress for the same wedding. I especially don't want to do it if it's one that I'll only be able to wear the one time cause of having a huge baby bump.

Β 

Just UGH! I mean, she said it's up to the bride to decide on whether or not to change the dress, so I'm really hoping she decides against changing it, but I'm probs gonna be real stubborn on getting a second dress for the same wedding....idk.....
